No, Sorry, That Doesn’t Work For Me

Anyone else here thinks, that there is just too much information about food and diet recommendations? Anywhere you turn you can see ads, recipes, cooking shows. Eat eggs. Don’t eat eggs. Avoid honey. Honey is good for you. Sugar is poison. Eat only fats. But don’t exaggerate.

Today we can actually decide exactly what we want to eat and then search the internet for articles with 7 bullets on why we really are making the right decision. I’m certain that if you wanted to eat French fries and burgers for the rest of your life, you can find SOMETHING or SOMEONE that is supporting that – you know, just make sure you eat your multivitamin too!

Or perhaps we decide to follow a very restrictive meal plan and let others decide what we should or shouldn’t put in our bodies.

Whatever the case, there is more and more of us, who chose to identify ourselves with a certain diet our lifestyle, that we religiously follow because we want to look good, feel good, do what’s best for our planet, etc. It doesn’t really matter what it is, what’s important is that it matters to US enough to put in some effort and time. And when we decide who are we, regarding food and lifestyle, we just go along the checklist which tells us how to behave. And that’s it. We’re officially part of the group! Pretty awesome, right? 😉

Well…maybe not. While I’m very glad that more and more people are starting to pay attention to what they put in their mouth, because they have realised that it can really impact their health and overall wellbeing, we have to understand that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A UNIVERSAL SOLUTION. What’s good for me, isn’t necessarily good for you. We are individuals, we are unique, so it is important that we figure out our best personal solution for our body.

The part that sucks is that it takes time and effort. Through the years we have lost the connection with our bodies and we don’t notice anymore when they try to tell us something. Our bodies speak loud, they let us know if they are missing a valuable nutrient, if we should take it easy and they also reward us when we take care of it properly.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could re-learn the language of our body again? The purpose of this blog is to help everyone who wish to get in tune with themselves. If your engine is working properly, it will get you where you want to go, without any complications. If not, we will probably be stuck at the next gas station, figuring out what’s wrong and getting upset, because our plans are ruined.

A healthy body is the basis for our wellbeing, happiness and success in our lives and that is why it is important that we take good care of it.  Wouldn’t you agree?
