I have been watching a lot of documentaries lately. They are a great place to find inspiration. Anyone who knows me knows I am battling with weight loss right now but more so I am trying to teach myself how to live a healthier lifestyle. I am over diets I lose weight I gain weight it has become this never-ending cycle and in the end I am losing. I don’t feel good about myself inside or out and I need to make changes for my overall well-being.
This documentary really opened my eyes about the things that we put into our body. Some of the things were obvious but there were a lot of things that I had no idea about, for instance did you know that the blueberries in a blueberry muffin you buy from the store are not real blueberries. You should see how much sugar is in processed milk it was disgusting, or how they trick us with the words fat-free that fat is actually not the problem it’s the storing of the fats that come from processed foods and sugars that our body is not able to digest that is killing us.
There is this guy in the documentary who talks about how he visualized himself as the healthy him and now that he is that person he feels so much better inside and out. He describes how much more energy he has to how much better his skin looks, and his hair is healthier, those things sound vain but they are important to self-esteem. I know this is going to be an uphill battle but I am not turning back this time. I really do want to live a healthy lifestyle. I’ve already started but I will be implementing small changes to detox and replenish it with foods that help me and make me feel better about myself forever not just for a diet.
A quote from the documentary that really stood out for me was: “Don’t think of food as you CAN’T have it, think of it as you CAN have it but you don’t want too”!
