Your Challenge Today:

Influence your life for 30 – 50 years!

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC


 

The way you think, the way you behave,

the way you eat,

can influence your life by 30 to 50 years.

~ Deepak Chopra

 


 

Eat for the body that you want and influence your life by 30 to 50 years!  That is a powerful concept, when we think of food a fuel, food as medicine and food as an investment in our health … it all seems possible and valuable. My mission here is to promote these concepts and show us how we can achieve these goals while eating food that tastes good too. I am talking about QUALITY FOODS here — good, old fashioned, real foods — prepared lovingly with good quality ingredients in a manner that is respectful to you and the food.

 

When we shift our thinking to realizing that food is fuel and medicine we can grasp the idea that food is also an investment in our well-being. I know that if you are driving a fancy, expensive car you are not going to put cheap gas into it, you are not going to skip the scheduled maintenance and you want to protect your investment so you are careful with your car, it is a prized possession. Let’s take care of our bodies as well and let’s do it with the same enthusiasm and commitment as we have for our car or other cherished possessions.

 

When we take pride in our physical body, we eat for the health and fitness that we want, we are promoting our longevity and well-being for years to come. We are putting ourselves into the place of most potential for a long healthy life minimizing possible pain and disease. This does not mean that we can never eat cake or french fries again, it does mean that we are mindful to keep these less healthy options to a minimum on one of our days off plan. 

 


 

The goal is to appreciate, respect and

have consideration for your body.

You cannot out train a bad diet!
