Like you, I hear all the dietary theories many espouse today. Worse? Many call themselves experts though they have little to no training. One course, or even notoriety seems to bestow “expert” status these days.
Beware. Many of these dietary theoreticians want to let you off the hook from creating a diet based on foods that you intuitively know are best for you, your body and your God-given radiant self… with theories laden with excuses, reasons, justifications, limitations.
You hear all that I hear, it’s in the airwaves, “you can eat bread and lose 26 pounds,” “you can lose 3x more weight than ever (while eating sugary and processed, nutrient devoid foods),” “you can eat everything in moderation,” all the while recommending highly inflammatory foods and in in poor combinations, which cause stagnation, calcification and obstruction in your one and only Sacred body!
Add to that a world that is telling you that processed foods are food (but really only food-like substances!), and worse, good for you, when in fact they provide no vital nutrition whatsoever and simultaneously break down your digestive wall. Your body needs the live, vital electricity that raw vegetables and fruits provide to rev you body up! It is the electricity in these foods that turns your cells and systems on, which is all happening at the subatomic level.
Think about it like this,
Do you think that the Creator of life thought you’d get more vital nutrition from a tomato you pick fresh off the vine from your garden, or after it’s been picked, processed, preserved-for-long-shelf-life, put into a can and then shipped?
In the fast-paced ways most of us move today, with businesses competing to manufacture the“best” quick-and-easy products that accommodate our hurried lifestyles, our food is not the only thing that has become denigrated, but our relationship to how we think about what we eat.
Rather than bending towards nature and our innate commonsense, we are bending towards a fast-paced, fragmented, constantly-on-the-go lifestyle seeking anything and everything that makes life easier, rather than better.
But you can shift your relationship to the food you eat by taking time to turn inward and question why you eat what you eat and what the impact of your food choices is having on your health and wellbeing, your mindset and potential and even your outlook on life.
I write about themes like this extensively. But learning more is often not your first best action. Learning more can and often does pull you away from what you intuitively know is best.
For example, a client of mine recently said, “someone said this allergy test would be good for me.”
I said think about this question with me, “If you someone you know suffers from ulcerative colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome or a leaky gut, which means the gut wall is highly inflamed and irritated, do you think you can get a fair reading from that test?”
The nature of life today is so fast moving that your best first action is to turn within, to reconnect to you, so you can access your intuition, smartest thinking and deepest knowing.
Not in a woo-woo, airy-fairy way, but in a smart and feel-it-in-your-bones kind of way.
To create clarity about what to eat,
Take time to slow down. Commonsense lives and breathes in the white spaces of life.
Take time to think. New ways of seeing things emerge with reflection, meditation and deliberate time to process and reflect.
Take time to regroup. When you’re calm and centered, your smart Self and best intuition will lead you back to the food choices you know are best for the body.
You are the expert of your body. Yes, there are some who’ve studied healing for years, if not their whole life, like me, who guide many in healing life-long health problems. But separate from the zillions of conflicting and confusing theories and star-struck “sages” out there, you know what is best for the body to thrive — your commonsense tells you so. Create time to slow down, to think, to regroup, to access your intuition, to clear confusion about what foods really serve your big goals in life!
Have you tried many dietary styles, and still suffer from chronic symptoms?
Even though you may feel as though you’ve made great progress, do you intuitively sense you’re not yet experiencing your peak health and energy?
Have you tried turning inward, but still feel utterly confused?
