Health is a choice that belongs to you
Updated: Oct 18, 2019
"I've always been the fat kid"
"I'm Big boned"
"I have bad family genes"
"I don't know where to start"
"I'm too busy"
Another likely reason is "I don't want to get healthier, yet"
But the most important word in that sentence is "yet", because that signifies that you would consider it; it is something that you've been thinking about, which is good!
Formulate a plan. When I speak to groups of people, I never want to tell them what to do. I want to give them factual information and let them decide what actions they want to take and when they want to implement them. If you don't want to get healthier now, or tomorrow, decide what conditions need to be met in order for you to get to the next stage. When would you be ready to make a change? Are you saying to yourself...
I need to learn more about this Lifestyle?
I'm going to start at the beginning of the month?
I'm going to start when my child turns a certain age?
I'm going to start when I get out of college?
I'm going to start when I move out of my parent's house?
I'm going to start when I meet someone who inspires me that I can do it?
I wish I had a reliable resource that I could turn to to answer my personal questions.
Life gets in the way. I get it. I've put things off for months or years sometimes. But there's time. Decide when you will be ready and put your plans into action. Be warned, some people have more time than others. Are you very overweight? Dangerously high blood sugar or cholesterol? Are you already suffering from a chronic disease or two? Taking multiple prescriptions medications for chronic diseases? The clock is ticking. Don't wait until it's too late.
No matter who you are, you can get healthier. No matter where you live or what health goals you have, YOU can make it happen. Health is a choice. Yours. If you need an ally, someone to lean on who is there to answer any questions you have about health and nutrition, we can make it happen. With years of personal experience with this lifestyle and even more time immersed in the scholarly research examining the effectiveness of a whole-foods lifestyle, I'm know it will work for everyone. When you boil it down, starting to eat healthier and moving your body produce no negative side effects, only positive results. If you want a free resource, check out my podcast where I interview doctors and scholars of lifestyle medicine in an effort to give you information to be healthier.
Eat more plants, move your body, and strive to take small steps towards a new, healthier you.
