How To Take Control Of Your Diet And Body

If you have made significant lifestyle changes, then you have all the reasons you could ever need to make a change to your diet and diet-related activities. In the past, I’ve helped my clients make these lifestyle changes.

You want your diet to be health-based? No matter your height, weight and body fat percentage, make sure you’re eating well. The more we know about what type of foods can and cannot cause health problems, the better decision we can have on what foods we should be eating. I suggest choosing fresh, unprocessed foods whenever available, avoiding processed foods, and eating only nutrient-dense foods that will give you the highest amount of energy in the longest amount of time.

You want to look good? You can’t get that look without eating well. You don’t want to look like a slob when you’ve eaten well and exercised? Your muscles need to keep growing and adding size as much as possible for the most amount of energy possible. You need to eat well and workout regularly or your muscles will eventually grow out of control and be unable to support you.

You want to sleep properly? You probably have a very difficult time falling asleep when hungry and you’ve probably had nightmares or feel depressed. A healthy sleep routine can help you feel refreshed, focused and ready to take on the day.

You want to take control of your life and your finances? You need to start planning and budgeting, and you will definitely need to work at building your own financial foundation on your own. You won’t have easy, quick successes because you won’t be able to achieve them. It’s not easy to put in the effort and time you need.

I hope that what it takes to make that decision for yourself will be easier for you to make when you come across the following tips or resources. Remember to listen well to your heart and trust, even if it’s not exactly what you’re feeling. It’s all about how you feel. It is what your gut is telling you, so listen to it, trust it. It will guide you and guide you right through any situation you find yourself in.

1.        Make your own decision.  

Your gut tells you, even if it’s not exactly what you’re feeling.

2.        If you’re feeling tired or full of energy, feel full. 

Your gut can tell you whether you’re full or tired. If you feel full and energized, it’s probably because your hunger and thirst are being satisfied and you feel happy and at peace. If you feel tired and full of energy, it could very well be all that “stuff” you’re eating is making your brain crave or overwhelm you.

3.        If you’re feeling really stuffed or full, take a break for a minute. 

Your gut tells you when to eat and when to stop eating. If you’re feeling full even though there’s plenty of food in front of you in front of you, it’s probably because you need to eat and stop, and you need a quick break to avoid becoming full again.

4.        If you’re feeling lightheaded or have any dizziness during any meal, try to drink less. 

Your gut can tell you when you should drink and take a break. If you feel lightheaded or dizzy, you probably don’t need to stop drinking or eating too much because you feel well and satisfied.

5.        If you’re feeling bad or hungry at any time without any reason at all, make a plan to go about your day differently. 

You need to understand that all of the different changes you need to make in you day and lifestyle are not easy. It takes a lot of work, but if you stick to them and don’t let the obstacles stop you, you will be the best version of you possible.
