Healthy Food on a Budget, Part 1

At a glance for people who are used to eating highly processed and fast foods, it may seem those foods are cheaper than healthy fresh foods. Today's blog will be part of a two part segment to show you ways to eat healthy on a budget.

The problem is that processed foods and fast foods do not promote health or weight management in a favorable way due to all the sugar, highly refined and processed carbohydrates, additives, chemicals, fat (particularly trans fats), and the high sodium they contain.

No to Trans Fats

Recently the Food and Drug Administration announced it will be finally banning trans fats completely from foods in the U.S.

A Healthy Lifestyle - Change - Success

If you are to be successful in the long haul there has to be a true "gut level" acceptance of making healthier food choices as part of your current lifestyle - for life!" It means planning and shopping for meals ahead of time, cooking more, eating less, giving up favorite foods on a day-to-day basis, practicing moderation, and learning to get right back on track after a slip-up, among numerous other things. As challenging as all this is, it takes this internal level of acceptance to integrate all these things into your current lifestyle which may not always be easy to do, especially if you have struggled with unhealthy eating in the past.

Diabetics Need More Nutrients

We all want to be healthy and fit. We all want and deserve optimal health. Diabetics in general need more nutrients due to all the cellular damage which occurs inside the body. This is called oxidative stress from high levels of free radicals that damage arteries throughout the body. Diabetics should understand that there is more of a need for antioxidant support to reduce this oxidative stress.

  • 7 million people are undiagnosed.
  • Diabetes kills slowly.
  • Why is it termed the “silent killer?” You may simply not know you have diabetes because it doesn’t have any obvious symptoms initially.
  • Diabetes causes blood sugar to be too high and over time it damages many parts of your body similarly to how sugar slowly erodes your tooth enamel and causes cavities.
  • Specifically, the cells in the body can't turn the blood sugar into energy, the sugar builds up and it:
  • Directly damages your heart, kidneys, eyes, liver, pancreas, and your nerves.
  • Results in blindness, kidney disease, gum disease, neuropathy, amputations, stroke, erectile dysfunction, heart attack, cancer, coma and just plain death, and not without inflicting a lot of pain and discomfort along the way.

Trick or Treat?

Halloween is almost here, so don't be tricked!

Halloween Temptations

Some of you may be thinking of Halloween. NOW is the time to consider your strategy for staying on track with your dieting efforts. You won't have much diet mojo if you don't plan ahead on this candy laden holiday on Thursday. Don't trick yourself into eating things that will sabotage your best efforts.

Most people do not think of courage when they think of weight loss. Everyone usually thinks only of willpower when it comes to dieting. But courage actually comes first. Even the great thinker Aristotle said, Courage is the first of human qualities which guarantees the others. It is in fact a great attribute when it concerns weight management.

Even though we may not think of courage in these ways, it is learning to overcome our lazy habits of relying on fast foods rather than taking the time to cook healthier ones, or maybe getting up earlier every day to exercise. Maybe it's the courage to say "No thank-you" to people who push food on you. And yes it does take both courage and willpower to say no to all the numerous food choices that do not support us on our weight loss journey.

Courage is about developing and utilizing all your deep inner resources to face the magnitude of weight loss challenges and unhealthy habits head-on around your food choices. We know there are many! (Remember we are here too to support you.)

And where do you get this courage? You get it by tapping into the inner reserve of your mind and realizing you can do what it takes to accomplish your goal. You have to believe you really are more powerful than all the circumstances around you. Work on your courage, everyone has it. Sometimes you just have to pull it out of yourself.

For those of you who have been successful, how have you personally developed the courage to go forward with your weight loss goals?
