3 REASONS NOT TO EAT HEALTHIER | Mind and Body Solutions


This is the time of the year when many of us are making new

resolutions ranging from breaking old habits, exercising more or

eating better. Most of us are considering some dietary changes.

Others are contemplating to avoid gluten, sugar, processed foods, or

sodas. No what matter what your goals are, our desire is to feel and

be healthier

1. People will think I am crazy.

Most likely true.

Unfortunately, people have lost their connection with foods. We

have taught that nutrition has nothing to do with our current health

conditions. If you do not believe me, ask your primary care physician

next time you see him. More than likely he will confirm that nutrition

does not contribute to disease. Therefore, anytime we go against

this  we are likely to experience ridicule and skepticism. This is

simply part of the journey.

2. It will expensive.

Not necessarily true.

The immediate costs may or may not be higher, but the long-term

costs are likely to be dramatically lower as we will save on doctor

appointments, emergency room visits, prescriptions, surgeries or

any other medical procedures without taking into consideration and

time and pain that we would have to endure otherwise. Farmer

markets  and some websites (such as www.thrivemakret.com and

www.greenpolkadotbox.com) are great ways to buy in bulk and save


3. There are so many diets out there. They cannot all be right.

Absolutely  true!

There is a lot of confusion in the outside world when it comes to

which diet to choose from. Some are vegan, others recommend

juicing, some are meat-based, some are raw, some are cooked, so on.

There is no “one size fits all diet” when it comes to food and

nutrition. We are each unique, with our specific needs based on our

own particularities. This is why it is recommended that you have the

advice and experience from a health practitioner who can guide you

through this journey.
