How hard can it be? Food is meant to be simple right? We eat it and then we get on with the more important things in our day.
This may have been the case in the past, but now it seems that food is causing us more and more grief and becoming this whole big issue in our lives. ‘Food’ has become the centre of so much debate and conflicting theories.
Many women are telling me now, that they feel so confused with all the information out there on what they should and shouldn’t be eating. The thing is, food can’t be general anymore. Perhaps in the past it could, it was simple, food was always whole and untouched by man-made substances, therefore there was less ‘reaction’ in our bodies.
Now, we are all becoming very different in how we process food. Not every ‘body’ absorbs it the same way and certainly what is great for one person, may be harming another. This could be to some extent, our genes and then other reasons such as the intolerances that we have developed along the way, certain health conditions, imbalances, hormones, medications and the list goes on.
We are all in such different ‘places’ with our health, the key is to work out where you are at, know all the different factors that make you ‘you’ and then develop a plan from there, in terms of what’s going to work for you now.
I think if we switch off from the general ‘noise’ we’re hearing from the media, and tune into our own bodies and what is needed, the whole food issue can become a lot less overwhelming.
So tell me, how do you sort through all the ‘noise’ on food advice?
P.S. If there’s anyone in your life (friend, family, employee) who feels a little confused about the food advice out there, please forward this email. It might be the fresh perspective they need to focus on their individual needs.
