Let’s finish this month on the blog with a few thoughts about understanding food and your body a little better. Every body is different. If you aren’t clear about that yet, then let’s start there. Every single one of us has a unique body that responds differently to food. And I am not even talking about food allergies or insensitivities when I say that. How our bodies interact with and process food is different for every single one of us. This is why diets don’t work.
There’s a multi-million dollar industry that will tell you diets work, but the truth is they do not. Until we learn how to embrace our own unique body, understand what food works well for us and which foods do not, we will struggle with weight and having a healthy metabolism.
Plain and simple – Eat what makes sense for your body. Or put another way, eat what your body needs and knows how to process successfully. If you aren’t sure what that is, there are nutrition focused programs, like those here at Ignite Yoga & Wellness, that can help you figure it out. Functional medical doctors and functional nutritionists can help too.
For those of you who read Eat Smarter and participated in any of our Eat Smarter activities this month, you know exactly what we are talking about here. The whole premise of that book is to understand how to activate your metabolism, so hopefully you found at least one thing to put into place to get you started on that journey to better metabolic health. There’s never been a better time than now to make this a priority, with COVID preying on those with weak immune systems and unhealthy metabolisms.
You can do this. Take a little time to understand your body and how it interacts with the food you eat so you can master the process and find your way to the healthiest you yet! And remember, we are here to support you every step of the way with nutrition programs to meet your needs. Take care, eat well and be well! Namaste.
