Diet is a touchy subject. Especially now, when there is a multitude of opinions and published works lining the bookstore shelves that proclaim everything from the low-carb, paleo, and vegan diet, to the pescetarian and macrobiotic lifestyle. Each is touted as the “holy grail” of the health food world, and the science backing each is just as diverse as the rules each has. That makes getting “healthy” confusing, right?
But there is a lot to be learned from the conflicting science and dietary trends, like the fact that every individual is unique and so is their body. If we pay attention, one might also realize that there are main components of every fad that make up almost every diet, and they are as follow:
1) Whole foods
2) Predominantly plant-based
3) High Quality
4) Made with Love
If one chooses to ditch the “Standard American / European Diet” by reducing their consumption of processed foods, sugar substitutes, and low-quality food options, a variety of improvements may become evident almost instantaneously. After detoxification subsides, clarity of mind, weight loss, more energy, better disposition, and desire to live life usually become re-integrated into one’s experience.
But a better bod and clearer mind aren’t the only benefits! Truly, re-connecting with natural living can transform your life in a variety of ways. Read on to discover how your life may change just by changing what you put on your plate:
1) Crisp your mind
The average individual lives in a state of numb confusion, biochemically ‘dumbed’ down from the toxic chemicals and low-quality ingredients found in most foods. But when those food products are removed from the diet, it’s an incredible effect that the mind becomes sharper, and in effect, one feels their capacity to think as heightened.
No longer is it ‘in’ to follow the crowd, because you can think for yourself! In fact, for once you’re able to determine what you want to do and even rationalize the truth that it’s not crazy to follow through with such ambition.
2) Follow your passion
Until you change your diet and lifestyle, you may never experience how incredible you can physically feel. And the feeling of being superhuman transfers to your mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies as well.
It become easier to tune into the passions that drive you to succeed in life, and when you can so strongly feel the calling to do what you love, you have no choice but to continue on that path of heightened bliss.
3) Ignite Self-Love
Most people seek to become healthier because they are ashamed or embarrassed by their body. This is incredibly unfortunate, as the human vessel is a beautiful, wonderful gift, and if taken care of, can optimize itself.
When we choose to live in harmonious companionship with our bodies, as well as take care of them through healthful dietary regimen, it becomes so much easier to love every aspect of ourselves. You are meant to thrive and feel powerful, strong, and attractive. Love yourself, take care of your health!
4) Fuel Vibrancy
Your cells are clean, your body lean, your mind supreme, how can you not fuel excited about life? Adopting a healthy diet might be tough in the beginning, but the benefits throughout and later on are worth it.
Enjoy every aspect of life by cleaning up your diet.
5) Heighten Relationships
Have you ever been in a setting where every individual is openly expressing their love to each other and enjoying the diversity of all gathered? Well this may sound incredibly “new age”, but it’s a by-product of living in harmony with others who nurture themselves, each other, and the Earth.
If you embark upon the incredible awakening journey of finding who you are by living in union with nature and your true self, you will inevitably attract other people walking down the same road. In effect, communication becomes much easier and holding a space of love is a normal, natural thing to do. Imagine having heart-felt, honest conversations with those you love with no manipulation dealt out. It’s beautiful, right?
Changing your diet is just one aspect of creating a more grounded happier life, but it’s importance cannot be understated. Follow these transformative tips and watch every aspect of your being bloom for life!
