Can I ask am I the only person who for sure gets confused, overwhelmed, and also agitated at all the slews of both confusing and conflicting theories about health? It is irritating, is it not? Back in the 80’s and 90’s were were told to watch our fat intake. Now jump into the 21st century and things have changed. Cause low and behold fat is good for you. Your brain has to have it but again its all about control. It is also one of our three needed fuel types. Then we run into the low carb issue, in where we are told to pretty much do away with them and to fill up on all the protein you can. But, our body needs carbs as well for it is a fuel source for our bodies…again its how consume it as well as fat. Our third fuel source is protein. Its a good idea to have protein along with either one of the other fuel sources, but as a rule of thumb, NEVER HIGH FAT AND CARBS TOGETHER AT ONE TIME. Protein is very filling. Some scientists enforce calorie counting while others scientists are in their own opinions, that calories don’t really matter. Canola oil, eggs, egg yolks, soy milk, or regular milk…are they good or bad? It all depends on which expert you ask! Today there is no lack in opinions about fad diets. Many want to believe that there are quick fixes for weight loss and all you need is a pill for general health, advice is everywhere one look—however, these fad diets do not last. Anytime you go to an extreme of eating by removing a certain food group and only eating another in the long run ends up in disaster. I do not remove any food groups. I believe god put them here so I believe he wants me to have them all. Only I stay away from man made and refined foods. They are really bad for you. Eating this way for me resulted in yes sustainable lifestyle changes but now I am feeling better, healthier then ever, controlling my MS better and I have one happy, healthy family. America is in a health crisis. Each person and family needs to do something totally different—we all need to think outside of the box.
Theres three ways we need to think outside of the box when it comes to eating & health.
- Consume foods that are outside of a box, bag, or package. You’ll find that “outside-the-box” foods likely come directly from the earth rather than a manufacturing plant. Simply put, food that consists of plants and quality animal products have the ability to nourish and heal our families. They also have more flavor to them. Processed and packaged foods that are refined and manufactured, on the other-hand, make us overweight and sick for they are full of hidden sugars in the form of carbs and additives. It’s okay to have formaldehyde for preserving the dead, but I don’t need it in any of my food! Yes it is used a preservative in foods.
- Many think that all they need for good health is a good diet. However, we don’t always realize that there are widespread factors that impact our health equally as much as our diet. Did you know that how one feels about things such as your work may be just as important as physical activity? Our personal relationships can have just as much impact on your health as the food you intake. Health is multifaceted by nature and we must assess and address it from all directions…Mind, body, and soul. Stress is one of the main things causing disease and leading to death in America. Its time to get stress under control. You can do this by evaluating your relationships along with being creative…make yourself happy.
- There are no easy solution to health. What works for one may not work for another. One person’s med could be a lifesaver for them but could be another person’s poison when it comes to each ones health. You can’t merely look to and believe the media, your neighbor, or the Internet for that fact to find what works for you always. Research is no doubt a critical first step, but self-awareness and self-trust will help us know exactly what nourishes our individual bodies best. As for me I will stick to what I’ve been doing since the first of this year 2015. I let all the hype and fad diets go. I am a Christian by believe and all this time instead of listening to the Bible I was listening to man. Man has brought nothing good forth. All this modified, gmo’s, etc were never meant to be. I follow the Bible based “Trim Healthy Mama” and will continue to so for me and my family.
