Many people I speak to feel totally overwhelmed by the amount of nutrition information available. Often it changes from one week to the next and we have no shortage of experts. They want so much to improve their eating habits but just don’t know where to start. The philosophy of Make1Change is very simple. Don’t try to do it all at once. Choose one healthy change and work with that until it becomes a good habit. Then you can work on the next thing.
A diet is an unrealistic, short-term, unsustainable punishment. Healthy eating is a lifestyle.
Healthy eating is not about the latest fad diet, the latest detox product, achieving Hollywood celebrity thinness. It is about being free from disease, free from aches and pains, full of energy for all your work and play so you can enjoy your precious gift of life to the fullest. It definitely means getting pleasure and nourishment from your food. It means smiling sweetly at the experts then listening to your own body wisdom. It means letting go of the unrealistic media images telling you that you are not OK as you are. It means letting go of the self-hate, self-judgement, self-criticism and accepting that you are ENOUGH, right now, just as you are.
If you were granted the wish of having the perfect weight and perfect body who would you be, what would you do? So why can’t you love yourself, have the life you imagine, do those things RIGHT NOW? Having the perfect body guarantees you nothing.
