WHAT I WISH I KNEW A YEAR AGO IN REGARDS TO NUTRITION:
-Food is fuel, not a support system
-Protein builds muscle which burns fat
-Carbs are your friend as long as they are high in fiber, vitamins, nutrients (i.e. fruits and veggies)
-Healthy fats are necessary, but can be overdone
-Elimination patterns are something to be mindful of
-Be aware of the calories your drinking—they matter too
-Alcohol, no matter how much, is completely unnecessary
-Eating mindfully (no screens/distractions) is important
-Bloating means something’s not right and should be investigated
-Starvation and restriction will only push you farther away
-Macros, intuitive, mindful, plant based, whatever...do what works for you—what makes you happy and has you stressing the least about your meals
-Finding what works best for you may take some trial and error time, but use that to build your knowledge of self awareness and blueprint of your body
-Take the time to get to know yourself inside and out
The last thing you need is to finally have reached your strongest self, BUT have a handful of issues and problems like hormonal imbalances, sugar addition, acne, thyroid issues, and an unsustainable lifestyle reliant on protein powder in every meal...all of this is no fun.
Coming from someone who’s suffered from hormonal imbalances, sugar addictions, to-yo dieting, and extreme cystic acne AND OVERCAME THEM ALL I preach a CLEAN way to reach your healthiest self.
Let’s build your healthiest self without all the chemicals and supplements!
