So what is “true health” to you? 

As I am eating my lunch I am thinking that there is no such thing as true health, because what is healthy for you may not be healthy for me. So there is no True diet or one diet that is right or wrong as we all have a different blueprint.

I’ve tried so many different diets and I can Truely say that I am not committed to either one. There is not one diet that can completely define what is best for me. The only one to know that answer is my body! The secret of being healthy is listening to your body, your body sends you signals when you are swaying from what it really needs. These signals come from constipation, diarrhea, nausea, stomach aches, headaches, rashes, anxiety, fatigue and the list goes on!

What works for me is adapting the things that worked for me from each diet, whether it was Atkins, Paleo, Ketone, Juicing, vegan, etc. and adapting them into my lifestyle and listening to my body. There are days I dont want steak and prefer just a vegetarian diet so I listen to my body and that is what I do. This is the body’s natural process in telling you “hey it’s time to reset and cleanse”.

This is why there is a lot of failure in dieting, because a lot of times people adapt them on a temporary basis. So after the 30 days they saw results but after the 30 the body adjusts itself to new diet and you hit a plateu and when you go back to your old ways you gain it all back. So instead of focusing so much on keeping that strict diet, think about whether this is a diet you can adapt long term. Learning to find that balance is the key for your long term success!!!
So the only True thing is finding your balance and being in-tune with your body!

One thought on “So what is “true health” to you? ”

  1. I think for me true health is learning to listen to my body, whether that means eating a lovely salad or eating 2 pieces of cake. I too often think about what I ‘should’ be eating that I lose sight of what I truly want. It’s difficult to find something that nourishes body, mind AND soul but i’m determined to find a way of living that covers all basis, long term. I’m not a fan of crash diets haha, what can I say. Great blog by the way, definitely some food for thought.
