Your Diet Simplified
By Dr. Kyle ChristensenEating healthy is so simple. It's just not easy. The challenge, as I discussed the other day, is that those who struggle with health issues generally are looking for shortcuts or they have fallen victims of taste buds that have been damaged by unhealthy foods.
Did you know that whole, natural healthy nutritious foods are what the body craves and desires? It is through eating highly processed foods that our tastes change. Additionally, as the digestive tract becomes unhealthy (the good bacteria are killed off and there is a predominance of the unhealthy ones), we crave sweets, Carbs and unnatural chemicals. The classic example of this is Diet Sodas - to anyone who does not consume these - they taste NASTY!!!! But once addicted to the caffeine and chemicals - you love it and crave it and can't live without it. That is addictive chemistry, not taste buds rejoicing.
Good digestive health results in desiring and craving healthy nourishing foods. Fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, raw milk and cheeses and healthy meats.
Is it time for you to get healthy? Still looking for a shortcut to health or weight loss? Eating healthy really is simple. It is a matter of turning away from those foods that you already know are NOT healthy and organizing your pantry and fridge with healthy foods ONLY. Simple, but not easy.
Check out The Daniel Plan for some extra motivation and a solid program for weight loss and getting healthy.
