Would you like to achieve better health through normal eating? I’m sure you would… that is, if you knew exactly what “normal eating” was! This blog is about making easy healthy lifestyle changes, one step (or change) at a time. So many times we try to change everything in one go, and then we fail. We wonder why? Is it because I’m not good enough? The questions start coming… ugh!
How about we tackle one thing at a time and when that is set in place and becomes part of us, we tackle another. Would that be easier? Don’t you think that makes a lot more sense in the long run?
First let me tell you what my blog is not: It is NOT about how to get slim… or get healthy… or get anything quickly!
Now let me tell you what my blog is: It’s about improving your diet (that’s what you eat every day) and seeing your immune system greatly improved; greater energy; generally healthier and the weight falling off on its own accord.
I share with you what I have done on my journey towards having a top immune system, normal weight and my desire to be bouncing with health.
Actually, I decided quite some time ago that I would not focus on losing weight, but on building superior health. At the end of the day, that is what I want the most. The benefit of thinking and focusing in this new direction, is that I don’t have to give any of my thought-time into losing weight. It happens naturally.
So where could I begin? I decided to look first at what I was drinking in a day, or should I say, wasn’t drinking in a day! But you know what, I needed help to do this in that I needed to have something to keep me on track. That’s where my little My Weekly Healthy Meal Plans came about. They are just my personal references to help me do what is good for me to do.
Variety… is that the spice of life? Everywhere I look I see variety. When God was creating the world He came up with an enormous amount of variety. Just think about the leaves on the trees… are there any two the same? Not only from tree to tree, but on the same tree. It’s hard to find two the same… exactly the same.
So on my quest for superior health, I knew variety was going to play a large part. My body needs lots of different foods and drinks every day and I don’t mean the same ones each and every day… that would be boring. No, there is SO MUCH for us to choose from so no two days need ever be the same. I’m going to share about the foods I’ve added to my life as I have learned more about what my body actually needs.
I invite you to come with me and to share snippets of your personal journey. Let us all learn together. Leave me a comment. Start a discussion. Let’s breathe life into this humble blog. 🙂 I will start it off…
As I concentrate more on building my health and less on how much I weigh, the better I’m feeling about everything. It’s given me freedom! You see, I know that my weight will normalize itself, and I’m excited about that. For me it’s been easy to make healthy lifestyle changes when all I’m doing is adding in extra yummy things which naturally means I’m losing the desire for foods I’d better not eat.
I see it everywhere – wherever I look I see diets telling us all the things we can no longer eat. I mean, it’s enough to make you want to give up long before you start! If there is anything I’d like to get through to you it’s the fact that we need to make it fun.
I’m working on the concept of listening to my body. That means I’m working out step by step what goes well with me and what doesn’t. And… if it doesn’t go good, why?
This is a work in progress, but here are some of the changes I’ve made so far:
1. I’m trialling replacing all grains… well almost. I mean, it’s better that I find out exactly what is happening in my body. Giving up grains was hard for me until I found out that there are all sorts of alternatives I can have which are really nice. I’m not eating any conventional bread at the moment, but I can still have bread. The difference is the ingredients in the bread. Read more about this here: Will I lose weight if I stop eating bread?
2. I don’t ever use white sugar… never, but I do use some nice alternatives. But having said this, I don’t have to go without. See what I mean? It’s what you add into your diet, not what you have to take away! After much research and study, these are the sweeteners I now choose: Are there healthy alternatives to refined suger?
3. Something else I decided to add to the mix was the addition of 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil daily. I mean, what the heck!? It’s healthy and makes for an easy lifestyle change Eat good fats and grow slim? Is this possible?
Have you got any thoughts concerning the 3 I’ve mentioned above? Great, then share with us through the Comments below.
Better Health, Normal Eating, Normal Weight – what is your philosophy?
Although you can comment anywhere on this website, I’m setting aside this page for you to discuss any subject you’d like. This blog is quite new, but my vision is for us to share together what we have found works for us, and what may help others on their personal journeys to better health and normal eating, normal weight, whether it be increasing or decreasing.
I have found that what’s been working for me is to make one change at a time, and get that “locked down” then begin another. In general I find it’s what I add to my daily diet, rather than what I take away. As I add more good things the bad things are automatically dispensed with. Rather cool actually. What about you? Would you share your personal experiences… your successes and your not so good times. Be real and that way we can all learn!
OK, as you look through these pages I hope you pick up the benefits of making easy healthy lifestyle changes, one at a time. I believe there is a natural answer for every condition, although the medical profession would like us to think otherwise. How wonderful to receive better health through normal eating. Of-course, if a food is lacking in vitamins or minerals, or we just can’t tolerate that particular food, we’d best take a supplement. Check here for wonderful and exciting new discoveries that have given us the most dynamic supplements, together with anti-aging and longevity products, personal care and cosmetics… all free of harmful ingredients.
