Diet Talk

From when we start in the womb, we’re in need of nutrients to develop, grow and survive. Without nutrients our bodies would be unable to function. The proper nutrients are what our bodies require. When we are not depositing those necessary nutrients, our bodies begin to starve. Although you may be consuming food, have you ever asked yourself, Am I consuming the proper nutrients for my body and do I know what proper nutrients are? Most of society is so hung up on being overweight. Always looking and paying for diets that are going to help them lose weight. Some of them work and some do not. The reason for that is because as much as our bodies are created anatomically the same, we all differ in what is important for our own self. There’s a saying,

“ One man's/woman's poison is another man's/woman's fruit.” Which means that what's good for one person, is not necessarily good for another. There are many factors attributing to that. The main factor consists of the types of food we consume. We live in a fast paced society. Always on the go. Junk food everywhere. Not to mention preservatives and other chemicals thrown into our environment polluting our foods. In turn that pollutes our bodies. Then we become deficient in nutrients such as vitamins, herbs and minerals which are so vital for the human body to properly function and survive. It destroys our enzymes and that's where it all begins. Then the diseases start. Whatever deficiency your lacking is going to offset the body's proper function. That's why it's so important to eat healthy, take vitamins and to incorporate some weight training to strengthen your muscles and cardio for your beautiful heart, especially after the age of 38 when everything starts to slowly change. I also believe in fasting to help the body stay healthy. Try to keep your stress level as low as possible because if you don't, then that creates a myriad of problems and weight loss is one of them. Make sure to see your physician. Have blood work done and ask your physician to look for any deficiency. They will tell you. My physician does and she also gives me the results. She's very thorough and always requires blood work. Always make sure that you find a physician that you are comfortable with. That's extremely important. After the results, find a nutritionist that can guide you with the right foods for your body. If you can't afford a nutritionist, research foods, vitamins, minerals and herbs that your body lacks. Their very good, legitimate doctors that can help on social media. Their also great books written by very educated authors who can help. You need to find out what is best for your body requirements and do your research. Ask questions and make sure people are legit. Remember that doctors, nutritionists and all other proctors can do so much. They can give you the tools but it's up to you to use them. It's like my favorite metaphor, “You can lead a horse to water but you can't force it to drink.” Remember, take care of your body and in return it will take care of you.
