The holiday's are quickly approaching, and we all know what that means!
Crappy processed food, boozing and overeating.
I don't mean to be a party-pooper, but all too often I see people overindulging in food they DON'T NEED, and holidays are a trigger for that.
Stuffing your body with greasy, salty chips and franken-food hot dogs are not going to add to your Big Picture - they are only going to take away from it.
Our bodies don't know what to do with all that processed gunk, so guess what happens?
Yes, it's getting real.
Time to get really real. Do you need to eat that coffee cake sitting on the counter at work?
Do you really need that whole bag of chips or cookies while watching TV?
No, no, no, and NO! THE ANSWER IS HELL NO !
There's a huge difference between eating what our body needs, and what our brain is craving. The reason we have cravings is because of all the crappy processed food, sugar and simple carbs that we are ingesting daily. Drinking coffee and alcohol don't help either. You know what happens? Both of those create huge sugar highs and lows, putting you on the runaway craving train.
So, as you move into this holiday weekend, I want you to think about eating to fuel your body and brain, nourishing your spirit, and treating your precious gift of life with care and respect. Eat until you're satisfied, not till you’re bloated and uncomfortable. Make the best, healthiest choices available or bring your own if you’re headed to a holiday event.
This doesn't mean you can't have a good time. It always blows my mind that eating bad food is equated to having fun. How about allowing your curiosity, sense of humor, and vivacious personality be the thing that brings out the best in others this holiday weekend, instead of stuffing your face with food porn for short-lived selfish reasons.
So, remember, you have a choice. Now go make the right one!
