The Little Things Are The BIG Things!
Small steps to make BIG change is something we often overlook or fail to appreciate as we attempt to initiate change. Often times we look up to the height of the mountain we need or intend to climb, and we decide not to begin because of the sheer magnitude of the task. Instead of remembering that we only have to take the first step and put one foot in front of the other.
And this is where we will begin today with reference to our diet.
Everything Affects Everything Else…Everything !!
Nutrition Made Incredibly Easy – And Why Not!
Diet, well there’s no shortage of experts out there telling us that this is the right diet and that’s the wrong diet. Eat more protein and fewer carbs is the current line of thought, not so long ago it was the other way around, eat less protein and more carbs.
If eating more protein and fewer carbs is the way to go, how could the experts have gotten it so wrong?
Eat fresh fruit and drink natural juices, No don’t do that, fruit and its juices are too high in sugar, bananas are fattening, we should eat low-fat products, but aren’t they loaded with sugar?
Seems all the experts are contradicting and criticising each other depending on what they, in particular, are promoting and/or selling.
Who is really telling the truth, who can we trust? I say you should trust yourself.. ‘Whatever you believe is true ‘. We all have a basic understanding or knowledge of what we should and shouldn’t eat.
This will be a simplistic guide on how to improve your health and well being, a starting point if you like that will provide results. Let’s make it easy, and begin without too many sacrifices, it will be up to you if you look to evolve even further and chase optimum nutrition.
