I’ve been there.
I fell for each and every one of these at some point in my health journey. I tried them all only to be left more depleted, more confused than ever, and sicker than before.
“I need to be eating more vegetables and less carbs”
“I should only eat red meat once a week”
“I better get rid of dairy, it’s causing my acne”
“I gotta get in a HIIT workout or else I didn’t work out hard enough”
“I’m still hungry but it’s past 7pm, I can’t eat”
“I ate so much tonight, but it’s okay i’m fasting in the morning”
Vegan propaganda, marketing, social media and diet culture has done a great job at making us all so confused about what is right for our bodies but from a biological standpoint, this is what our bodies need to thrive. This is what our bodies need to have healthy hormones, thyroids, adrenals, and menstrual cycles.
Nutrition doesn’t have to be complicated and confusing. Eat an abundance of real food without restriction, choose superior foods that will give you an abundance of energy and are loaded with nutrients and honor your bodies needs and signals.
How many of these fads have you fallen for?
