This. Your body has organs that are meant to do all of the things that people are trying to tell you that you need an expensive product to do. No. "If your liver isn't working, you need a hospital." Yes.
Much credit to Destroyed by Science for this beauty!
I will have to check the date on this, but this is outrageous. This is just one example that speaks to the challenge of battling obesity, particularly in childhood, when a family's access to nutritious food options is so limited. This should be unacceptable to all of us in 2016.
A great reminder that healthy has so many different looks! Focusing on what your body can DO is the perspective shift that could truly propel you forward.
These are some great points about why these many fads, including juicing, are at best, useless, and worse, harmful. MBHF promotes eating a variety of foods, with an emphasis on the nutrient rich ones, moving your body often, in ways that make you happy, and taking care of your emotional self. Juicing and cleanses and wraps and shakes and patches and any of the other plethora of things that show up in your newsfeed everyday, don't fit into that equation.
Childhood obesity rates in our country are truly sobering. Models exist internationally that could help turn the tide here in the U.S. We have to start somewhere. Food education is an incredibly important step.
Planning meals ahead of time almost always makes it easier to make choices that nourish us and feel good. These are some great recipes that freeze well, and can be easily reheated on a busy evening. Yum!
This. This this this. So much this. Many thanks to www.mariabascetta.com for putting this incredibly important message into words. "Fat" is not a feeling! You may be feeling lots of things about yourself and your health, and those feelings are incredibly important and worth exploring, but "fat" is not a feeling. Who you are as a person has nothing to do with your body's relationship with gravity. If you have ever looked at yourself in the mirror and said something that you would never say to a friend, take five minutes now, read this, and SHARE.
Better late than never! Accessibility is crucial to turning the tide of health inequalities in this country, and somehow or another, I missed this news when it happened almost two years ago. Many thanks to #thelocavorefoodie for this awesome share!
Many thanks to #CoconutsandKettlebells for an excellent post on "getting your body back" post pregnancy, and the importance of self love. "Your body never left. Your body is on your side."
Your body deserves your love, and when you finally start moving in that direction, the rest will begin to fall into place. ❤️ #realtalk
