Stop Reading Nutrition Labels - I Dare You!
Yep. You read that right.
I dare you to stop reading nutrition labels.
What if you focused on the ingredients instead?
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN?
What if you choose foods that don't need a label as your primary source of fuel.
And when you do pick something up that has a label, your eyes went directly to the list of ingredients. If you see any of the zillion names for sugar, artificial flavours, artificial colours, dyes, chemicals, or something you can't pronounce, you just put it back.
Its as simple as that.
EAT WHOLE FOODS
Not processed foods.
From there, it is a study of one.
Figuring out what whole foods make you feel great, and what foods don't. No-one can give you the perfect diet plan for you, but you. I might feel great on a primarily vegan diet (with bacon!) and you might feel best having animal products more regularly. The point is we both had WHOLE foods, not fake foods. Our bodies were not designed for them - they mess up our appetite and hunger signals, our sweet tooth level, our gut, hormones and so much more. A juice cleanse is an amazing way to give your body a break from processed foods, refined carbohydrates, sugars and so much more so that you can re-set, reboot and learn to listen to your body again. Spending a few days only ingesting nutrients from whole plant foods will enable you to listen to your natural cravings and go from there. Help your body function with the type of foods mother nature intended.
Ok, that's my rant for the day. Peace out health junkies!
