I am constantly talking about fueling your body properly, nourishing yourself at the cellular level with the highest quality, fresh, whole, nutrient-dense foods and eliminating the junk/processed/packaged foods. I know a lot of people would rather use one of the diet plans that let you eat cake and sweets every day for a snack or dessert. So many people I talk to tell me they just like those “foods” (and believe me I use the term loosely) and as long as they balance it out with some healthy food – it’s all good. Right?
Well, maybe not. We are all metabolically unique. You know you are a one of a kind, Designer original – that includes your physical make up as well. We all know there are also genetic factors – what we inherit from our parents, grandparents, etc. But studies have shown that even if you have a propensity to develop a certain disease – like heart disease or diabetes – your lifestyle, habits and nutrition can change that.
Well I saw a fascinating video of Dr. Terry Wahls, who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) which had progressed to the point where she was in a wheelchair. She began studying nutrition and how she could properly fuel her body to reverse her MS. And she did!
It’s an amazing video that I believe will convince you of the importance of proper nutrition. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words! For me, it definitely confirmed that nutrition is the most critical piece of the puzzle and one we can actually control to a great degree, if we choose to.
Would you take a few minutes and watch the video and let me know if it changes your mind about how you eat?
