I want to to want healthy, whole foods that actually do something for my body. Not just food that tastes good - and often makes me gain weight and feel gross. I'm a huge huge advocate for the argument that the food you eat has a direct effect on anything and everything that's going on with your health - especially cancer prevention; I'm also a huge junk food junkie. Sooo figure that one out.
A few months ago I started a great book on food addiction and how it relates to our walk with God called Made to Crave. Just like every other topical book on things of the Christian nature, I get totally caught up in the first chapter, rave about the book and then fail to finish it. I have a whole bookcase of barely started books. But I really do want to finish reading that book. I do I do!
I don't really have a plan of attack yet - just trying not to eat whatever, whenever but rather be really intentional. Here are a couple of guidelines I'm going to try and slowly incorporate into my lifestyle:
- limit the insane amount of snacking I do
- eat more fruits and vegetables - preferably raw
- cut down on the carbs (especially sugar)
- have an accountability partner to keep me on track
Basically, it's all about making.smart.decisions.
Here's to doing just that.
