I don’t think it’s any secret that I love food.
I’ve been that way ever since I was a little girl – it’s part of what drew me to pursuing a degree in nutrition and dietetics.
If there’s one overarching thing that I’ve learned thus far through school, it’s that there is no such thing as a perfect diet.
I’m lucky enough to work with Time Inc. and receive the latest issues of their lifestyle titles each month – and while I was perusing this month’s latest issue of Health I came across this:
I rarely read the diet and fitness advice in health magazines because often it’s highlighting some ridiculously restrictive plan and I just simply don’t believe in that. So you can imagine my delight when I saw this little blurb within the “Do Trendy Diets Work?” article by Courtney Rubin in Health’s May issue.
Here are my thoughts on the above advice…
I know it can feel frustrating to be patient when you feel like you have a long way to go, but just know that by doing so, you’re helping your body change for GOOD. You’re instilling good habits little by little that will add up to big changes in the end. Each day that you practice patience and kindness to your body (by listening to it and providing it with what it’s asking for) is a day closer to achieving your goal for good – whatever it may be.
There is no perfect mix for everyone – when it comes to calories, carbohydrates, fat and protein – we have guidelines, sure, but ultimately you need to find what works for YOU.
