I find it interesting to note that although nutrition is at the core of our existence, it’s an area that far too many people struggle with.
Our diet plays an essential yet neutral role in our lives as it creates both healthy and unhealthy lifestyles. And it’s all based on our “moment-to-moment” choices that compound over time.
Seems like a “duh” comment by simply stating the obvious.
I guess you could say that I am absorbed by or passionate about what I refer to as The Health Triad. Which integrates great nutrition, regular exercise, and adequate rest for ultimate health & vitality.
And I would have to agree with you… I am. And for good reason.
But think about it… We
- eat 3 to 5 times a day.
- spend time planning our next meal.
- make decisions about where to go eat.
- meet up with friends and family to have a meal.
- complain about our fullness because we ate too much.
- And we vow to improve our nutrition so we can lose weight.
We can’t blame this on the food companies that are producing and marketing all of this crap. Although I would love to see them all go away. And we can’t blame the fast food joints and restaurants. It’s their choice to sell that garbage.
This is on us, and up to each of us to get it right.
Food contributes to our wellness in such a big way. But it can also become an Achilles Heel if we let it control us. As a matter of fact, obesity recently surpassed famine as a cause of death.
But it’s a lot broader than this. Obesity doesn’t only put you in an early grave, if that weren’t bad enough. Along the way it causes so many other problems that could’ve been prevented. A few of which include diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
The food choices we make can produce significant benefits when we’re serious about consuming high-quality nutrition. Or they can pose dire consequences if we run on auto-pilot and unconsciously eat anything (or make excuses). It’s the compound effect, and for me, it stands out like a RED flag!
It’s all about discipline and consistency.
And this is where I believe I have an advantage. And can help you.
Our choices about nutrition run the gamut, including:
- conscious and healthy
- unconscious and unhealthy
- about convenience and comfort
- emotional, unpredictable, or habitual
- for the nutrients vs. to satisfy a craving
Eventually, our nutrition habits catch up with us. There’s that compound effect phenomenon again; always at work, for or against us based on the choices we make.
No one is perfect. And you don’t need to be. Perfection is unattainable. Which is why you should strive for 95!
Improving your nutrition isn’t easy. But it’s also not hard. It starts with a strong desire. And requires us to be conscious about our choices. It also takes a little effort, planning, creativity, discipline, compassion, and time.
And sometimes you need a coach…
Unfortunately, food distractions are everywhere we turn. And this isn’t going to change. You need to ignore them. So I’ve included a few links to recent posts (about nutrition) to help you get or stay focused on “healthy side” of nutrition.
- You Are What You Eat! Including Snacks
- Judgment Day Is Calling!
- Your Longevity Plan
- Improve Your Nutrition
Also, I saw this very brief article and found some value in it, so I’m sharing it with you in this link. It’s helpful sometimes to hear advice from other reputable sources so you can make better decisions.
So what’s the takeaway this week?
To help you become more conscious about the food choices you make every day. And this includes beverages too. It all matters…
I want to help you make better decisions about your nutrition so you can live longer, and have more energy and vitality.
How? By focusing on The Health Triad.
Recently I mentioned that I’m conducting another program.
I have designed this new “pilot” program to help you lose weight and get in shape in a proven and sustainable way. It’s based on small lifestyle changes that produce better health & vitality by focusing on healthy habits that get results.
I am looking for a few serious people who will commit to losing weight and getting into the best shape of their life.
Thank you for sharing your time with me. I hope you found value.
Now it’s time for YOU to take action…
