The State of Nutrition Advice Today

What is the correct diet? Is there a lifestyle one should be living? Just one?

Ladies and germs,

My answer is “Follow what you feel you can do!” Is a diet something one should do for just a few days, months, or years…or is it something one should focus on for a lifetime? How about we not call it a diet at all…how about we call it a lifestyle…a way of eating…a way of being?

Here’s the thing: I have seen many sides pushed…I have seen and heard many ‘experts’ argue…and I think…as a person researching this…as a person that spends hours upon hours immersed in the audio world whilst going about a routine job…and I have come to the following conclusions:

A. One should be ready to change for a life…not a day, month, or year.

B. One should undersand who one is in heart and mind first.

C. One should seek out the various information and make an informed decision…based on a lot of information that has been filtered by one’s own brain and feelings.

D. One should understand that this change means a change in whole life…not just the physical, but the mental and emotional too.

E. One should feel sated.

F. One should feel comfortable

Information might be difficult to decipher.

Information might be contrary to one’s beliefs.

BUT…information and education are important…research and diagnostics are important!

If you don’t know, ask! A professional in your area or online can usually help you begin the process…and where you take it from there is up to you…

Please, do not rely on the information about nutrition that you see in media today. Please do not just believe the hype. I think The Cure (1978 – 1979) said it wisely when they said “The old ideal
Was getting such a bore
Now you’re back in line
Going not quite quite as far
But in half the time
Everyone’s happy
They’re finally all the same
’cause everyone’s jumping
Everyone else’s train”

It makes sense in the nutrition world too! Don’t follow the trends or the popular belief! Get what is right for you!!!!
