Therefore I have decided to eat healthily as you all know from following my blog (thank you for following as well J). So what I want to know is why do people brand it as a “diet” and why can’t someone come out and say as long as you eat healthily, exercise and have the “naughty” things in moderation you will lose weight if you need to and be fit and…. you guessed it… healthy.
So I’d like to start a revolution lets scrap the diets and eat healthily, lets accept that there are occasions when you can’t be “good”, that’s just life, but as long as you are good 80 – 90% of the time that’s all good.
I’ve been working with Polly Noble on raw foods, and I’ve really been enjoying eating raw foods and feel energised, fitter and healthier by doing it, I have however amended it slightly in that I do have some meat with my main meal and that’s mainly because I like it, but all my veggies etc… I eat raw. Everyone is different and you just have to adapt what you eat to fit in with: -
- your lifestyle
- your likes and dislikes with foods and
- where you source your food from and how you get it
If you can it is best to eat organic foods, now I don’t have time to go to the supermarket, so I use Abel and Cole. Abel and Cole is great for me because it’s all organic veg and meats, I can select how often I want a particular food, e.g. weekly, fortnightly, just 1 order (if you’re trying something new) and they deliver it to my door every Wednesday morning, so I know when I’m receiving it and can plan our meals around that. If I’m not in for any reason then provided I’ve put it as an instruction, they will leave the food in my garden for me. It’s also worked out cheaper than buying organic foods through some of the bigger supermarkets.
But like I said everything is personal to you, so do what works best for you and just be healthy.
If anyone has any thoughts on this then please do get in touch, I’m always open to ideas, views etc… but I would highly recommend taking a look at Polly’s website – www.pollynoble.com - and having a browse as to what she has to say and also try out some of the free recipe’s, you will not be disappointed.
