The foods you put in your body represent your fuel and your energy to live and be vital. Nutrition-packed foods such as fruits, vegetables, and high quality protein are the fundamental building blocks to wellness. When your diet is balanced, your metabolism has the opportunity to function at its best. Many people experience energy dips throughout the day which lead to inefficient productivity and an overall sense of dissatisfaction with life.
For some reason, many people associate a healthy diet with compromising the foods that they love. One of the first things you can do is look at healthy substitutions for all the food choices you make which are not supporting good health, e.g. substituting lower calorie fruit over a sugary snack.
Here are some excuses that we often hear from patients as to why they do not eat well:
- "Fast food is just so easy and convenient"
- "Greasy food just tastes better."
- "My kids won't eat anything else."
- "I don't like the texture of healthy food."
- "I don't like the taste of water."
Even though these excuses may seem valid, we need to start somewhere. It is time to feel healthy again and often nutrition is one of the first steps.
