Your diet is a bank account. Good food choices are good investments.
When I worked at a bank many years ago, I drank sodas like it was a drug. My body actually craved it like an addiction. I always swore, they put something in there to trigger our brains.
I have been incorporating healthier food choices as am getting more aware, and I am thinking and feeling so much better because of it.
The food industry, processed foods- when I fall back into the trap of a frozen pizza or a burger from my favorite fast food place; it sends me on a tailspin of an eating frenzy. I am consuming so many empty calories; my body feels like it’s starving to death.
Let’s think about this for a moment. In reality, I am starving to death. There is absolutely no nutrition whatsoever in processed food- Just chemicals and stuff that causes obesity and illness.
I don’t need to be a scholar in nutrition to figure this out. Just by the reaction my own body has is proof enough for me.
Speaking of additives in processed food; do we even know what they are and what they are doing to our bodies?
medicalnewstoday breaks down 9 ways these foods are harming our bodies.
I am wondering if the convenience and price of these types of food and its correlation to cancer and how readily available the products are, is what is causing the hike in our beloved cancer victims.
We need to be aware of what’s going on around us. Just because the FDA slapped an OK sticker on it, doesn’t necessarily mean it is really OK for us to consume.
Listen to your body. Do some experimenting with food choices. Plan one or two days of eating naturally derived food and see for yourself if you feel better. nerdfitness.com has some wonderful budget friendly ideas to help with this challenge.
If you do try this-let me know if you feel different!
As always, stop the mind chatter, go within and listen to your body.
With Hugs and Hope
