10 Ways to Have a Better Relationship with Food to Feel Better
1. Carbohydrates are your brain's food; if your brain is well fed, you can think about how you will provide your muscles, bones, and all the other body systems. Thinking is an energy process and allows you to care better for your body with clarity.
2. Take absolute control of what goes in your body and have complete responsibility for what that food will provide your body, whether good or bad. Everything you put into your body has a result on your health
3. Although we live in a society with an abundance of food choices and more quantity than most, it does not mean that there is quality in all food. Step back and respect what you eat; appreciate it for the good it will provide the body.
Not all food is nutrient equal. Separate the food that will bring power to your body's cells from the food that provides your mind with "pleasures."
4. Protein provides your body with amino acids that help build tissue, including muscle, bone, organs, and blood—the protein in meat, dairy, and vegetables. We do not need as much protein as we provide our bodies. By eating more plant proteins compared to the number of animal proteins, we cut out the fats in large quantities.
5. Never leave the mirror with a bad image; stay and find something positive in the image you see. When we find ourselves in a self-image funk, we tend to eat emotionally. As a result, we can make bad decisions during this low point in our mood.
6. Find your poison and cut it out or cut it back from your diet. Try different ones to track until you find your key. A food poison is abundant in your diet that hinders any weight loss and not helping with the healthy lifestyle you want—examples: sodium, sugar, Saturated fats, cholesterol, etc.
7. At least 65% of any meal should be plant-based food. Try mixing cooked and raw foods into your diet. Adding small amounts of high-fat proteins to the large part of the plant will help control the increase in vitamin intake, lower doses of 'bad' fats, increase fiber, natural detoxification, and protein intake adjusted to your body's needs.
8. Discuss all the foods that go into your body. This food is entering into something that you should cherish after all. Your body relies on food to be healthy. You depend on the body to provide life and movement, to house your spirit, and laugh. Ask all foods: Where it came from? What purpose does it have? How much energy does it provide? One crucial question is: Does it only a pleasure to ease discomfort from the mind while bringing ill effects to the body? Would it be better to eat food that allows the body to be healthy to enable that health to be used away from the table and out into a world…..like wearing a sexy dress or hiking or swimming, or dining out with friends…and feeling fabulous!
9. Block out the noise and own your decisions. Information that bounces in from media, friends, and loved ones can block your instincts about what is best for you. You already know how to take care of yourself. You are not like anyone else; although it is a great thing to learn each day, the trick is taking the information you gather and personalizing it to reflect your goals.
10. Building muscle takes time, consistency, and constant reflection of the dedication to you you. Also, this applies strongly to building self-esteem and confidence, wellness and health, and awareness and understanding. So stick with it and hone your skills every day.
