Would you like some lettuce with that?

So what’s the deal with eating healthy? It’s way easier said than done, am I right? The fitness magazines and commercials make it look SO easy! No, no you don’t want french fries, you want some baked fiber bars. Oh of course you don’t want a big fat juicy hamburger you want a tofu patty – yum! Oh and would you like some lettuce with that? Give me a break. How many of us can really abide by such strict and unrealistic guidelines? Certainly not me, and if you struggle just like I do this post is for you.

So what are the right foods to cut out of your diet? Some people go a little crazy and say you need to cut out everything! NO sugar, NO meat, NO fried food, NO artificial flavoring – so what’s left? Practically nothing. They key is cutting down, not cutting out. We as humans need certain foods to survive. Cutting out meat would deplete our entire protein intake and cutting out sugar completely would make it very difficult to refuel the brain and muscles. Cutting down on fried food is a must. The days of fried Oreos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner must end. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a goodbye to fried food completely, it’s simply a see ya later! Cutting down to maybe one fried treat every two weeks is a start! In the same respect greasy foods also have to be cut down on the same scale.

The sugar question is a bit more complex. Sugar is simply necessary to get by and we can get by if we consume the RIGHT sugar. Of course the large majority of us as candy loving machines will be tempted to consume the WRONG sugar. The wrong sugar being cotton candy, chocolate bars, and soda. We must prevail and force ourselves to consume the RIGHT sugar. The RIGHT sugar being apples, bananas, yogurt, prunes (yes, I said prunes) . Soon this way of life will become routine for us and not such a chore.  This is totally doable and a relatively easy place for beginners to start! We can’t all just hop right into a no sugar, no meat, no FUN “diet”. They just don’t work out. Of course any change of your food pattern takes some discipline but discipline is a small price to pay for a healthy lifestyle.

Stay tuned for more health tips and advice!
