Everyone can benefit from a healthy diet. In a previous post I referenced three basic things that you can start doing now that will automatically help the way you feel. In this post I’ll discuss Eat Well. When you are trying to manage a chronic health issue, modifying your diet can help improve the way you feel almost instantly. Some results will take more time to yield but often the body will respond quickly to the good fuel it’s being fed.
A diet is not something that you are on, it is something that you have. Everyone has a diet. It might be a raw food diet, it might be a junk food diet, but you do have a diet to sustain your life. You have the choice as to what that diet is going to consist of. It might take some experimenting to get it right for your body type, activity level, and for your particular health condition. Sometimes, as time goes by, what used to work needs to be tweaked to get better performance out of your body and that is okay. It’s natural to need to maintain your body; we maintain our vehicles with proper fuel and upkeep so we should expect no less when it comes to the machine that we literally live in.
While food should be chosen to nourish the body there’s nothing wrong with wanting it to be tasty and enjoyable. Because of the overload of “food-like-stuffs” in society, it’s misunderstood that healthy food and delicious meals cannot be synonymous. They most certainly can and should be both good and good for you. If meal prep and cooking in a healthy manner is new to you, allow yourself time to practice. You will eventually find what you like and what fits into your new, healthy lifestyle.
Not only will you gain confidence from taking control of what you’re putting into your body, you will start to feel better because you will be benefiting from the nutrients and it will show, too. Brighter eyes, glowing skin, strong muscle tone and more will result from a cleaner diet. A healthy diet can make you feel and look better and that is fuel for chronic confidence.
Next time I’ll elaborate on how to Take Care of Your Personal Appearance for Chronic Confidence. ~trvw
