The Perfect Diet
Updated: Jul 10, 2020
We are all in search of that one diet that is going to help us lose weight, make our skin glow and give us incredible mental clarity. But what if I told you in all my research, listening to the top thought leaders in this area and scouring through studies, the perfect diet is not a one size fits all, and that is the reason so many fad diets don't work, and the results never last.
I want to give you hope that losing weight, having beautiful glowing skin and mental clarity is all possible but you have to ask yourself some important questions and really listen to your body when eating food to find the answers.
Question 1: What makes your body hum? Really feel good and give you energy? When you are moving and groovin', have you ever stopped to wonder why you are feeling so energized, what did you eat to make you feel so good? For me, it's eating a delicious and flavorful green salad with a little protein and a bunch of good healthy fats like avocado and olive oil.
Questions 2: What makes you feel tired and sluggish? Do you ever equate that overwhelming feeling exhaustion and brain fog to what your last meal was? Personally, when I indulge in the occasional dessert or pastry, 99% of the time I will end up feeling tired and in need of a nap. And, what do we do in the situation? We compensate with some caffeine or maybe even more sugar, and the cycle continues.
"Weight loss and health depend far more on the type and quality of the food you eat than the calories or the amount."
~ Dr. Mark Hyman
When it comes to your "diet" choose foods that nourish your entire body, food is medicine, and real whole foods have vitamins, minerals, the nutrients our bodies need to thrive and function properly. Food is the code that programs your biology, your cells are made up of the food you put your body. It is crucial you chose wisely so you can be composed of the most beneficial nutrients. We owe it to our bodies and mind! Every meal counts!
So, how do we do that? Here are some trusted tips. Ideally, you want to eat vegetables galore, low in calories, high in fiber, with almost all the vitamins and minerals your body needs, plants are the nutritional cornerstone. You'll want to choose your protein wisely. If you are a vegetarian or meat eater, the quality of the protein you choose is so critical to good health. Eat healthy fats! What did you say, eat fat? Yes, healthy dietary fats have numerous benefits from providing optimal fuel for your brain and heart to building blocks for hormones and cell membranes, the list goes on.
