This month I’m going to blog about nutrition. I may not be a licensed nutritionist…..yet, but I have a great deal of knowledge that I have gained over the years with regards to food. As we all know nutrition counts for 80%-90% of your results, the term “you are what you eat” is very true but I would like to add to that statement…
If God made it, eat it!
People often ask me what I eat on a daily basis or what “diet” I am currently on but the reality is I have only been on a “diet” once where I followed a specific meal plan and this was because of my participation in a bodybuilding competition.
I want to make it clear that I am not speaking to those individuals who are training for a show or who have other very specific goals, I am speaking to everyone else. All of us are human and do not want to be restricted when it comes to eating and feel they have to eat the SAME thing every day. There is hope and a much simpler way of thinking which is my new quote If God made it, eat it! If it flew in the sky, walked on the ground, swam in the water or grew from the earth, tree or bush….eat it!!
All natural food is good for you and will give you nourishment which your body needs. Stay away from things in boxes, bags or cans.
Keep things real and clean.
Besides the If God made it, eat it rule, here are some other principles that will help with weight management.
Well everyone, that’s it for this week. I wanted to give a simple and basic guideline for you to follow and don’t forget, “If God made it, eat it! I will talk about “macros” in a later blogs but as my mom always said “you need to crawl before you walk”, so keep working at making changes slowly and we will work together to improve our lives.
