Healthy eating helps us be the best versions of ourselves. We want to support our bodies with healthy food, but there is so much confusion about what is actually right with it comes to health and wellness. We want to feel vibrant, energized, and confident in our bodies, but why can it seem so difficult to achieve?
Do you ever have any of the following thoughts?
I feel like I have tried all the things but cannot seem to achieve my health goals
I feel like I have hit a plateau I can’t seem to get past it
I feel like I’m really trying to be healthy, but I’m totally confused by so much conflicting health info
I feel pretty confident in what I’m doing but wish I had someone to hold me accountable
I have no energy or motivation and don’t know how to get started
I am looking for relief from constant mind chatter about food and body image
I just want to know what is the right way for me to eat
WHAT HEALTHY EATING CONFUSION CAN LOOK LIKE
cutting out entire food groups
exercising a lot + removing foods but not seeing results
fear or shame around food or your body
fed up with not knowing what will help
feeling like you’re doing all the things but not feeling your best
following the latest diet trend but not feeling good or energized
taking supplements but you don’t even know what they’re for
unsure of which foods to include or not include
Causes of HEALTHY EATING CONFUSION
THE MEDIA AND HEALTHY EATING: Constant conflicting information leaves our heads spinning wondering what is actually true and what is best for me?
FAD DIETS: What may be popular may not always work with our body.
UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS: We are guilty of putting unrealistic expectations on ourselves on how we should look. Society puts a lot of pressure to try to look and be a certain way.
THE IDEA OF THE “PERFECT DIET”: How we eat ebbs and flows. We need to accept there is no perfect diet.
DIET MENTALITY: This leads us to cycles of restriction and overindulging or reward and punishment through food.
ONLY CALORIES IN, CALORIES OUT MATTERS: This is a dated paradigm and does not consider many factors like the quality of the food, composition of our meals, or our personal hormone balance or body needs, among many, many others.
STRESS: Work, relationships, our social lives, and on top of that our bodies can all add fuel to the fire.
LOST TOUCH WITH THE BODY: It can feel hard to support our bodies when we don’t know what will actually help.
