Sick of hearing about the diet pills, wraps and other fads out there? .
do you love food?!?! well i do, and this girl in no way could handle starving her body.
i need all of food, bread and peanut butter to eat (hi my name is krissy and i have a problem with peanut butter). no diet over here. never!!! just eating all the real/raw foods and fueling it at the correct times.
“diets” are bullcrap 💩 why? check it...
1. you can gain weight on a diet 🤯 #mindblown this “diet” is most likely restricting you from eating certain foods or even to a larger extent, eliminating an entire food group #nonono what happens when you stop this diet & go back to a normal way of eating? your body becomes shocked and retaliates against you by gaining weight.
how? it has no idea what the hell you’re doing to be honest. for so long it hasn’t seen these specific foods so it doesn’t really know how to digest them.
not only that, even you start to retaliate against you. you haven’t been “allowed” to eat certain foods so, naturally, you miss them! you miss them so much you eat the whole oreo sleeve before you even realize it 🙀
2. you’re slowing down you’re metabolism. no, diets don’t rev it up. eating food revs up your metabolism. diets restrict food/calories. a metabolism is a system inside of you that is meant to break down food and increase with more food intake. get where i’m going here?? eat more to have a higher metabolism to burn more fat.
3. diets purposely make you hate yourself! i hear it all the time; someone goes off of their “diet” by eating 2 cookies and they start cueing the negative self talk. they start hating themselves, looking down on themselves, that negative self talk is brutal!
so what do i believe in? flexible eating. eating wholesome nutrient dense foods 80-90% of the time & fun foods the other 10-20% of the time. no restrictions, lots of fun, and some easy weight loss results. sound too good to be true?? in this case, it’s not. it’s 100% true.
gals, give up the quick fixes, the skinny teas, the weight loss pills; it’s all a scam. i’m opening up 3 more 1:1 nutrition coaching slots for the rest of may. link in bio to apply 😘
Day 36/100) i remember the first time i went to see an ayurvedic doctor. wow was this different from going to see my gp! he had time, he asked me about my life, looked at my diet, lifestyle, mentality, spiritual practice and discussed my plans and ideas. having gone in a little sceptical, i came away feeling a little impressed.
a holistic approach to health and a doctor who was personal!
i've been thinking about it the last few days... in the western world we tend to have a one size fits all mentality towards diet and health.
we flit from one fad diet to another. one day carbs are the enemy, the next day fats. one day cardio is the way forward, the next day you won't get anywhere if you don't lift.
we forget that health is far more elaborate than diet and exercise. we believe food is ours to abuse. we forget that we are far more than our body.
ancient health systems, like ayurveda, are rooted in knowledge passed down over time and are woven into the fabric that makes up all compartments of life. unlike many modern branches of medicine which are constantly fluctuating and generally corrupted by ulterior motives 🤑🤑 completely fractured from other aspects of life.
i think the flaw of modern culture is forgetting the divine source of everything in place of a consumer attitude of entitlement. food, for example, is now often considered a right rather than a gift.
we have traded connection for convenience.
so i've been contemplating this and i realise that i have gotten out of a very good habit! i used to sing a prayer before every meal, recently i have been neglectful of this practice.
so today's challenge! start singing that prayer again everyday, every meal 😁🎶 bring on the gratitude, connection and love 😜😍 #the100dayproject#100daysofbreakingroutine#singforyoursupper
repeat after me: create a lifestyle not a diet. so often i come across crash diets spread online with tons of misinformation about health🤦🏻♀️. yes the military diet will lead you to lose pounds in a couple of days but this weight loss is not sustainable and can lead you to even gaining weight. 😵 maintaining a caloric deficit to lose weight is great. what i don't agree with is restricting caloric intake by so much to lose weight, so much so that it is unenjoyable. when this happens, as soon as your return to your normal eating patterns, the weight is inevitably gained back ❌ instead, dedicate yourself to making healthier choices daily. this does not mean you can't enjoy treats every once in a while, simply that the majority of your diet should be balanced, whole foods👏🏽 i want you to challenge yourself to make small changes and build a healthy lifestyle. your body will thank you for it in the long run 💪🏽
