Wow! Food!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Now, this is the first time that I can actually post something food related other than making changes.

So, normally, I'm a happy person. But I don't FEEL happy all the time. I mean, sure, I celebrate the good, mourn the bad, I always thought that I was normal. Some things would bother me more than others, but mostly, I thought that I was happy.

I recently read that what you eat can affect your moods. So I was looking at what foods they say do that. One was spinach. I eat spinach daily, in my smoothies and in my afternoon salad.

After a few weeks of changing my diet, I actually realized, I FEEL freaking AMAZING. I am HAPPY all the time ALL the time!!! Sure, things annoy me, but I just seriously feel like I'm on cloud 9! Is this my diet? Well, this is the FIRST time I have eaten this healthy. Every other time I have lost weight, I have never eaten this great. ALL of those times I have worked out. So it can't be the workouts, it HAS to be the food!

I wish I had known that I could feel this amazing. I'm glad I know now!

    I never really sat down and put that together, but now that you mention it, it makes so much sense! Whenever I start paying more attention to what I'm eating (ie. eating healthier), I start feeling great! I've started eating more spinach, carrots, broccoli, etc. and have been in such amazing spirits for the past couple of weeks. I couldn't really get a grip on a "why", but what you wrote here makes so much sense! I thought it might be that I was exercising more and eating healthier, but as you said, I've exercised more before and didn't feel this good! So Kudos to you for figuring it out!

    It's a good realization...switching away from processed foods, eating clean, and (for me) cutting down on carbs has had a noticeable effect on my psyche; I feel clearer headed. About month ago, we went out to eat and i loaded up on....crap, just for the hell of it.

    I felt cloudy-brained and sleepy for about a day...once back to clean eating, the brain cleared up to.

    Good on you...keep at it!
