Maintaining a nutritionally well balanced diet is extremely important in staying healthy. However, most people are unable to sustain this lifestyle as they are always falling victim to empty high calorie junk foods.
These empty high calorie foods really trick the body in believing that it’s nourished. However, the body’s cells are nutritionally starved. They don’t receive the nutrition they require, so they signal the body to eat more. The person will tend to eat more of the empty high calorie junk foods as those are usually processed and addictive to the mind.
With regards to diets, people go on diets to lose weight quickly prior to an important upcoming event. However, once the event passes, they lose all interest and resort back to their old behaviors and end up sometimes worse off than when starting their diet. As the body has a natural tendency to protect itself, it stores fat for survival of long stretches of no nourishment.
Most of us do shop and buy all the right foods but refrain from eating them until the very last days, when they are about to go bad. Trying to recover our loss, we end up binge eating. This is an example of a imbalanced meal prep for the week.
Work with a Life Coach to remove the root causes of the re occurring destructive behaviors. Then, work on “adding” nutritionally high foods to your already existing diet. Your body will automatically reduce the intake of the empty high calorie foods as gradually it will become nutritionally nourished.
