3 Self-Love Actions To Reset Your Diet + Health


I'll be the first to raise my hand if asked, 'have you ever deviated from your healthy eating for an extended (long) period of time?" When this happens for myself, you, or anyone, you can get off the unconscious train, and get clear and conscious about what may be going on emotionally why 'unhealthy' eating felt comforting, and choose to resume and reset your commitment to eating what serves your health and life best.

Here's what you do:

1. Make a declaration from a heart-felt place as to why you are choosing to transform your eating pattern into a healthier one. Why is this important to you? For some it may be: I value how I nourish myself or eating the food that is best for me is a reflection of how I love myself or I want to feel happier and eating the right food will support that... When you create your change from this emotion-based space, you allow yourself to experience a deeper commitment to making and sustaining the change.

2. Because change can feel overwhelming and daunting to most, create 'small', simple steps to set your lifestyle enhancement in motion. If your diet (the food that you typically eat day to day) has been voided of fresh, lightly-prepared vegetables, within the week, add one cup of a steamed vegetable, such as kale, broccoli, chard (if these are the most nourishing options for you) to only two meals. This can help because you're not feeling pressured to make a change everyday. Each week thereafter, add this one cup or more to another meal, and another meal, and so on. Once you've become more comfortable with these additions, bring your focus to decreasing the food that is negatively affecting your health: too much sugar, fried food, fast food, flour-based products, caffeine... Those are just examples of food that typically can affect your health, in a negative way, when consumed often. For example, if you drink two cups of coffee everyday, you can decrease your caffeine intake by reducing to one and half cup one week, and decrease a little bit more the following weeks. p.s. Remember to chew food slowly, and consistently until food is completely soft before swallowing.

3. Drink water! Water supports our entire being to work optimally. It hydrates and nourishes our bones, tissues, muscles, every area of our body, including supporting our digestive system to properly digest food, and absorb the nutrients it needs to thrive. Drink half your body's weight in ounces of water everyday. For example, if you weigh, 140 pounds, drink 70 ounces of water everyday. If this seems like an OMG moment for you, once again, make it simple in your mind and daily actions. As an example, invest in a bottle that contains all the water you will drink in the day, and bring it with you wherever you go in your car when driving to and from locations if you're going from the bedroom to the living room when you're at work, etc. Have the bottle with you, and take sips, ideally approximately every 15 minutes, or your best. The more you keep the bottle in sight, the more you will remember to drink.

p.s. As a Holistic Nutrition Educator, I support women to create a healthier relationship with themselves and food by assisting them to prioritize emotional, mental, and physical nourishment, and be able to consciously know when they are hungry, what to eat, how much to eat, and feel satisfied, and in joy throughout the journey. They place little to no focus on the scale, and deepen self-love, which contributes to making healthier and kinder choices about food.
