Do you Eat to Live or Live to Eat?
What is your relationship with food? Is it healthy? Or does it consume you? Do you eat on a schedule? When hungry? Mindlessly? For comfort? Are you thinking about your next meal while still digesting your last?
Although food is a very important part of life, instead of just consuming food, many Americans are letting food consume them. Even to the point of death.
Education and identifying the What, When, Where & Why of your eating habits is the first step to a healthier, happier life. Ask yourself the following questions (and be honest):
What do I eat? Foods that are good for me or junk?
When do I eat? When hungry? On a schedule? All day long?
Where do I eat? At the table? In the car? In front of the TV? In bed?
Why do I eat? Hunger? Comfort? Boredom? Socialization?
The list of sicknesses and disease directly linked to our diet is long; Some of the more common are type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cholesterol issues, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, thyroid conditions, polycystic ovary syndrome (women). Then there are secondary conditions that are ultimately linked with obesity such as muscular problems, joint replacements and loss of limbs to name but a few.
What is it going to take to get you on the path to healthy eating? The goal for all of us is to Eat to Live, while still enjoying food. Contemplate the above questions and your answers. There is no “quick fix” or “magic pill”. Even the services of LetsLose, Advanced Weight Loss Clinics are at best only an aid…
The real power to fight this battle lies within you, and you ARE stronger than you think.
