It may be an uncomfortable truth that you are responsible for everything that you do (or don’t do) in the area of your health and happiness. Often, people don’t take the same kind of approach to managing their personal lives as they do their professional lives, they allow the actions of others or even outside events to influence their health, their life and their happiness.
Whatever your role in life, it’s time to start relating to yourself as the CEO of your health. There is no bigger or more important position. Any CEO worth their salt knows that you cannot ignore an entire aspect of the business and expect the company as a whole to thrive. It’s the same with your health and happiness. You cannot just take the view that there is no time for eating well, working out or relaxing and hoping for the best.
Be Clear on What Isn’t Working:
It’s easy to think ‘there’s nothing really wrong’ and to plod on regardless when the truth is, things could be so much better.
The first step is to really get present to how many symptoms you are experiencing in order to understand the degree to which your health is under pressure.
Fixing your diet really does help
Making changes to what you eat can have a huge impact on how you experience your life. Simply: it is the game changer you have been looking for. It doesn’t matter if you have low energy, brain fog, lack of motivation or you’re dealing with a more specific health issue like digestive problems, low libido, anxiety or depression.
As a nutritionist, I know from working with clients that making strategic changes to what you eat can help you:
- Feel more energised and vital
- Regain your mental power
- Rediscover your physical strength
- Sleep better
- Lose belly fat
- And more…
The best thing you can do for your body is to start eating real food. Ultra-processed foods have been linked to cardiovascular disease, cancer, non-alcoholic liver disease, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. Humans are not cut out to subsist on man-made food.
We evolved to eat natural foods: meat, fish, seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds, herbs and spices.
Make it Happen
A diet that balances your blood sugar is the best way to get back in the game.
The same old sandwich at your desk doesn’t work. By getting the wrong lunch, you starve your brain of the key nutrients needed to function at peak level.
When you start to focus on eating real food, you’ll find a lot of sugar and refined carbohydrates leave your life.
- Eat regularly
- ALWAYS eat protein at every meal/snack
- Be selective about the amount and type of starchy carbohydrates
It’s ok to ask for help
Research shows that men don’t like to ask for help.
However, asking for help when you need it helps make you a better man.
