Today I am going to get into how to get out of your “nutrition funk”.
What I mean by this is that a lot of people are trying to eat right in today’s world because lets face it …its not like when our grandparents were growing up. There are a lot of interesting ingredients with words that we can’t pronounce allowed in our food which you can clearly see on the label of your favorite food item. Then there comes the opportunists who see a chance to market themselves with all kinds of diets that people should take advantage of whether its good for you or not. People are so bombarded with what we shouldn’t or should eat, that actually its just a simple task and not as complicated as it may seem.
I remember starting my journey about 12 years ago, developing an interest on researching organic foods and it helped a lot. I lost around 50 pounds because I totally changed my eating habits.
And of course exercise which I hated but learned to love because of the results I was seeing (now I love it by the way).
During that time …there were and still are a lot of different diets like low carb , high protein, low-fat you name it they were there ….so I am thinking well damn what the hell am I suppose to choose…
I mean we all know information to the public comes with a price so most of that information is for marketing purposes you know gain clients, consumers to spend some money.
So here are a few steps to get you out of that nutrition funk.
- Do some research
- Make a food log for about a week. Don’t change anything just go about your regular day and keep a journal
- After the week is over , look at exactly what you were eating and record how you felt like were you bloated, felt heavy, tired, no energy that sort of thing.
- The next week take out the foods you love
- Repeat number 3
- After you figure out what It could be that is holding you back from reaching your nutrition goals, most likely those are the foods that your body just can’t tolerate and so happen to like for example rice, bread, cookies, you know comfort foods. These foods are not so bad, it’s just how they are prepared through the average food companies that make them so terrible.
- With a little research you will be surprise at how you can still eat these types of comfort foods but make them a WHOLE lot healthier. Check out recipes online with a simple search on google for example with key words like organic cooking , or how to make cookies healthier , you get the hint.
Here is a list of information that I love to catch up on:
Podcast: (Stitcher app)
underground Wellness Radio
Total Human Optimization
I am still looking for more……
just to name a few. You can just go in and search as well with the key word healthy eating on the users tab….
websites: I look mostly at just random sites that I can find but usually I just look up recipes..
So basically everybody reacts differently to certain foods. No one “eating plan” is created equal. Only you know how your body operates and how it feels.
Until next time Happy Eating and come back for some more tips and experiences that I have had in this wonderland of healthy eating and fitness.
