My friend and business & brand coach Amber Lilyestrom has an amazing bonus gift on her website, it’s called “The 5 day Brand YOU Challenge” and I obviously jumped on this awesome freebie. Why am I telling you this? 1- So that you can go over there and get it for yourself and 2- because I want to share my answer to question 3 with you!
The question is: Here is what I know to be true…
The truth is, we know nothing about health. We believe everything the internet will tell us without looking further for proof.
The truth is – health is not one-size-fits-all, we need to try, fail and try again to find what really works for us. Vegan, vegetarian, Paleo, dairy-free, wheat-free, …? Let’s focus on intuitive eating to guide us and let’s trust our bodies to tell us what it really needs.
We are so disconnected and out-of-tune that we are teaching our children what:
-To dislike their bodies.
- To see food as the enemy.
- TO be ready to fail every ‘’diet’’ and to be ready to gain all the list weight right back.
- That eating disorder is…normal.
- Not to listen to themselves, but to listen to the voice of everyone around them, everything they see on the internet and every book they read.
We are a disconnected generation..and this needs to END NOW!!
Why did I want to share this answer with you? (and by the way, there are no edits. This is word for word what I wrote down!) Because this is my passion, this is my mission, this is why Health & Fitness means so much to me..because I want to end the disconnect! I want little girls to grow up knowing that food is here to give us energy, to keep us alive, to awaken our taste buds…THAT IS ALL! Let’s stop our own loathing self-talk, let’s stop teaching it to our daughters, let’s start loving ourselves and see what happens.
But, how can we do this? How can we unlearn all that BS that we've been fed for the past X amount of years? It won't be easy! It won't happen overnight! But we can make it work, we HAVE to make it work!
The programs I offer are a good way to begin. The programs focus on LIFESTYLE and not DIET! I talk about INTUITIVE eating and finding a workout that makes YOU happy! Sounds like fun, right?! Come on over and check out what I have for you! Life gives us many choices and I am giving you a few more! See you on the other side!
