You are a product of your habits, and when it comes to eating, it’s no different.
In a world where the mainstream media teaches us to fear food, it’s easy to jump into the latest diet trend of fad without taking the time to explore whether that will be a sustainable approach in the long term.
Diets are unsustainable because they don’t teach you anything about your own eating patterns. They paint everyone with the same brush, and attempt to provide a band-aid solution, which usually works in the short term, but leaves you depleted and worn out in the long term. Worse, they leave you feeling like you failed.
There is no one definition for “healthy eating”, the same way there is no one definition for “exercise”. You are free to define it however you’d like, as long as it’s a sustainable approach that you can stick to long term.
Changing your habits requires more effort in the short term, but it’s the only solution that’s personalized to you, puts you in the driver’s seat, and leads to long changes and results.
