Observed While Eating Healthy
I’m now 34 pound less than I was just 11 months ago. Even more important I’m way healthier now than I was 11 months ago. Here are some things I’ve observed along my short journey of trying to eat healthier.
1. Most Are Clueless.
Most are clueless as to what they are doing to their own bodies. How their eating habits alone are affecting their everyday health. Trust me, I too was ignorant before my eyes were opened to what eating healthier looks and feels like. The average American’s diet is wrecking their quality and quantity of life.
2. Society Has A Careless Attitude.
It’s hard to go anywhere and find much of anything you should eat on the menu or in the grocery store. Weight gain is not the greatest concern I see. It’s realizing we’re poisoning ourselves with every bite from the drive thru and even our own kitchens. Oh and please don’t overlook the impact of those delicious, but very dangerous sweets.
3. Eating Healthy Feels Good Because It Is Good.
Piling in the sugar, fast foods and even what most call soul foods aren’t so good for the soul. That’s why later you feel like something just ain’t right. Not one day since I’ve started eating totally clean have I not felt internally much better. The flare ups in my nerve damaged body have been far less since I’m no longer feeding my own inflammation.
4. It’s Hard To Eat Healthy
With God’s help I’ve been staying away from almost everything that is normal for most to eat. It’s hard when everyone around you eats stuff you know tastes much better than your dishes. It’s hard when you’ve been eating one way so long and you’re having to totally reprogram your mindset. However, the fact is it’s worth it. It keeps helping me feel way better. This alone has me striving daily to make wiser diet choices.
5. Most Don’t Act Urgent Until Things Are Urgent.
Why wait for your health to get much worst? Why wait until you’re battling some life threatening condition that could be avoided? If I didn’t believe this stuff was life and death related you wouldn’t be hearing this rant. This is not a sermon to make people feel bad. This is a love letter from somebody who cares.
I pray it wakes up at least one person. To the one continuing to fill yourself with whatever tastes good to you. I encourage you to do your research and understand what you eat really does matter. In fact, it matters a whole lot more than you can imagine.
“You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is beneficial.” 1 Corinthians 10:23
