I want to help you get outside, eat well, and feel good… but why should you trust me to lead you in your healthy eating efforts? Let me share three truths about my healthy eating journey. If my perspective on healthy eating inspires you, let’s eat well and feel good together. My greatest qualification to help you achieve your goals is my success in reaching mine. In 2011 I adopted simple, sustainable healthy habits to lose 48 lbs. Here are the three truths about how I built and maintained my healthy eating lifestyle ever since.
I didn’t count calories. Instead, I read ingredients and selected the most nutrient-dense foods. I looked for foods with the shortest list of ingredients and paid close attention to the order of ingredients. A longer list of ingredients increases the opportunity for additives or preservatives while a shorter list is more likely to contain whole, unprocessed ingredients. Also, the ingredients are listed in order of amount, so what’s at the top is the most significant ingredient.
I didn’t starve or deprive myself. Instead I added delicious whole food and used gastronomy, the art of choosing, cooking, and enjoying food. The whole foods delivered vital nutrients my body craved, an important part of feeling full and satisfied. I used the powers of gastronomy to achieve satiation and sincere enjoyment in the meals I made. Whole foods and natural flavors never disappoint. Knowing you’re investing in your long-term health doesn’t hurt either.
I didn’t change back. Instead I’ve maintained my healthy eating habits and thrived. The healthy habits I adopted were not just successful, they were sustainable for me. They had such a positive effect on my life, I easily adjusted and made them part of my lifestyle. That’s not to say there was no hard work, but that the hard work came in the form of changing my perspective, researching, and trying new things.
I don’t know everything, but I know about making healthy eating a part of your lifestyle. When you’ve figured something out and it’s made life better, you want to share it. That’s the truth.
