We all seem to start every new year with the best of intentions for eating healthier, losing weight, or getting more energy. But so often that goal can feel so huge and nebulous.. where do I start? What is healthy eating? Should I start a cleanse or a new diet? Oftentimes, our overcomplicating or overthinking of this relatively simple concept can suck the resolve right out of us. And after a few well-intentioned weeks, we’re right back where we started… Tired, bloated, and squeezed into jeans that feel too tight.
What I always tell my nutrition clients is this: healthy eating is SO much easier than the media and diet industry make it out to be. You don’t need a diet, or a detox, or a book to tell you the common sense food rules that govern great health.
Michael Pollan put it best:
Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.
There. That’s IT. Seriously.
