Here’s today’s encouraging message:
You’re looking to drop some weight quickly because summer is right around the corner, right? If you’re like most people I talk to you’re looking for a quick-fix detox or you’re on a mission to stop eating “carbs” altogether. Or at least that’s what you think you want until you realize that you need a certain amount of carbs to function at a healthy state, and that fruits and vegetables are carbs–just complex ones. So maybe just change your thinking on carbs to avoid unhealthy simple carbs rather than carbs as a whole. Now about that detox. There’s nothing wrong with a detox if you’re doing it in a healthy fashion. But here’s the deal. You don’t need to detox if you eat healthy food to begin with on a regular basis. “That’s no fun,” you say? What’s more fun: being lethargic, over-weight, and consumed by aches and pains, or having a ton of energy, a strong immune system, and little to no inflammation? Yes, my goal is to encourage you to make healthy eating a way of life and not just a way to fit into your summer clothes. When you choose healthy, your willpower muscles get stronger and stronger every time.
