Food changes everything. When I first heard these words in nutrition school, I thought, yeah right. However, I am no longer a skeptic.
Think about it, using the food is fuel analogy: if I put low grade fuel in my car it sputters and stalls. Kind of like what happens when I put cheese doodles in my body on a regular basis. Sputters and stalls. But if I put high grade fuel in, suddenly the engine is purring and revving, the ride is smooth and steady.
I have seen with my own eyes the ripple effect of changing how we fuel the body. No longer in a caffeine coma, we begin to think clearly. Get the sugar out, and calmness and stability replace up and down mood swings. Add in dark leafy greens, depression lifts. Include healthy fats, now energy levels are high, the skin clears. The body looks and feels better every day. You CAN teach an old body new tricks!
Things that felt overwhelming before, now seem possible. Self imposed limits shed. Maybe I can run a 5K....maybe I can start a new career...maybe I can begin to clear longstanding clutter....maybe I can get off my meds....maybe I can work on my relationships....maybe I can begin creating again......I have seen each of these scenarios actually happen with my clients.
With energy and confidence high, opportunities unfurl, doors open, life engages.
Food is just that important. What you eat, changes everything.
