We all have an ideal, healthy body weight we’d love to achieve and maintain and because we have incredible modern conveniences and live in an affluent country that generally doesn’t have to deal with food shortages, we have to make intentional efforts to stay properly active, strengthen our bodies and eat a proper diet. It takes discipline and an understanding of how to make correct choices.
My eyes regularly pop out of my head when I (unfortunately) see fitness/diet related posts or ads pop up on my social media feeds, promising things like “21 days to your beach body”, or touting quick weight loss plans, using misleading terminology such as “melt” away the pounds, detox yourself and lose 10 pounds in a week. I cringe, I get angry.
Whether I’m working with someone specifically toward fitness goals, nutrition goals, performance goals or any combination, helping others be successful is of utmost importance. Therefore, I function in the realm of healthy reality rather than trying to market gimmicky, unrealistic and unhealthy claims.
Eat Smart. Eat with your brain. Why? How a person chooses to eat can have profound effects, either good or bad, on their overall health. Food is that tangible piece of our environment we put into our mouths every day. We rightfully worry about germs, viruses, bacteria and pathogens but what about how we eat. What and how you eat can make a person sick too.
