Being healthy requires a lot of hard work but what’s the alternative? I know the physical and emotional impact of being obese and unhealthy. I’m sick and tired both physically and mentally and I will become healthier. I will take massive action each day to ensure I become healthier than I was yesterday.
Are you healthier than you were yesterday?
I know what I have to do and I’m going to do it. I may be making socially unacceptable choices, not drinking or binging on junk foods. I’m not going to eat cereal for my breakfast; I’m not going to settle for a sandwich for lunch because it’s convenient. I’m going to eat the right foods which make me healthier.
If people don’t like that, tough, I don’t want to hear it. If you have a problem, either do something about it or shut up. I’ve let people control my decisions in the past but no more. All I have control of is my choices and I will make the best or healthiest choices I can.
I have procrastinated for years about my health. I’ve read a ton of books and I now appreciate what modern processed foods do to the body. I don’t know everything and I probably never will but I know enough to move in the right direction.
My journey is simple but will not be easy. Why? I’m an addict!
I’m addicted to highly processed calorie laden foods which give me instant gratification followed by a lifetime of guilt about eating them, not to mention the physiological effects they create. I’m obese and I hate being obese. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone but society doesn’t appear to care.
I wish that if people were to choose to lose weight and become healthier that they could get access to the right information. Conventional nutrition advice is nothing more than a token gesture, there to show that someone is trying but we can see it’s just not working. It’s making things worse. Unfortunately no-one seems ready to acknowledge they were wrong.
We are being instructed on what to eat by the companies that produce the foods that are making us unhealthy. People like Zoe Harcombe, John Biffa ,Jessie and many more are challenging the powers that be and as an individual we can make a difference.
We have the power to choose.
True health is a niche at the moment, there is a small group that see past the fads and work towards self awareness and self expression through health. I recommend you watch the Garage Warrior Podcast with Erwan Le Corre, thought provoking and inspiring.
We appear happy to judge everyone to a standard that no one can meet while allowing our health to deteriorate and complaining about it. The healthcare system doesn’t make you healthy, it manages sickness. Want surgery or medication, seek “healthcare”, if you really want to be healthy you need to do the work. Seek help from the right people and take massive action each day to improve your mind and body.
As a society we’re aware of our rights but not of our responsibilities. Health is your own responsibility. If you put your health in someone else hands, you’ll get what they give you, not what you want. It’s your life, and it’s the work you do that defines it.
What to do about it?
Eat more foods from nature. Wheat is processed to hell before it reaches your plate and is not natural. Not convinced, read “Wheat Belly”
Move more, move better.
Make the healthier choices. Rather than watching TV all night, get more shuteye before midnight. The reality of TV is that it deprives us of quality sleep. I’m not saying we need to start tossing flat screens out the window, just that there is a time and place for TV and there is a time and place for sleep.
The earlier you switch off from Technology at night the more high quality sleep you can get.
Do you choose to be healthy or are you a modern day zombie?
Are you healthier than yesterday?
