A good time to listen to my body
Tuesday, July 16, 2019
I've had an upset stomach for the past two days. I guess that's what I get indulging in ramen and a slice of pizza. I know that I should stay away from dairy but sometimes I do crave it. Sometimes I do give in. This time I was so unproductive that I've basically written these two items off my diet. They are not healthy for me anyways.
I really have never listened to my body. I use to listen when I did dance and martial arts. That's kind of slipped past me as I got fatter and fatter. I put the food and drink into my body and just not care how I felt afterwards. With these kinds of reactions happening to certain foods, well I'm sure that you know that I'm not happy.
It's a good time to start listening to my body. I have a feeling that I need to start eating on the lighter side of the food spectrum. That means making sure that I get my fruits, vegetables, brown rice, Quinoa, and lean proteins into my meals. I don't think that my digestive track likes overly processed wheat and grains.
I don't know how eating on the lower end of my calories is going to affect my weight loss but it is just something to be done. I think that knowing what fuel is best for me is important. How can I promote and live a healthy lifestyle if I'm putting foods into my body that make me sluggish.
One thing is for sure that it is going to be interesting finding out what foods give me energy and what foods make me lethargic. A lot of people believe that ultimately our health starts with our gut, so it's time to take care of my gut after so many years.
