In today’s society everybody is looking for the quick fix. Everybody wants results instantly and in their search for these results they are swayed and persuaded to try many different weird and wonderful plans.
The key word is sustainability! Ask yourself this, the way you’re eating today, is that the way you can see yourself eating in the next 6-8 months? If the answer is No you really need to look at your nutritional habits.
I get asked all of the time, what do you think of this diet, or especially lately what do you think of Herbalife or Weight Watchers. My normal response is what do you think of whole foods?
We are also missing the bigger picture. Surely in today’s climate, with obesity and type 2 diabetes on the rise, we should be looking to educate people. These companies send out completely the wrong message. "Drink this 3 times a day and you will lose weight". It’s just wrong! How about you eat some eggs for breakfast, a nice chicken salad full of dark leafy greens for lunch and a steak with sweet potato for dinner. Now what sounds better to you? 3 chemically ridden shakes a day, or a day packed full of good delicious whole food! I know what I would choose.
The point of this blog is not to tell you what you should be eating, but to try and open your eyes to these diets and schemes that are everywhere. They target people who are looking for quick results. But these results do not last.
If you start to make healthy nutrition a part of your lifestyle the results will be long term. Not to mention the fact you will look better, feel better and sleep better.
So put down the juice drink or the diet shake. Grab a steak, fry it in some coconut oil and wash it down with a green tea!
