Saturday FAQ - Choose For Yourself

Saturday, June 22, 2013

In the end, we just need to do what's right for our bodies. We all think we have the right answers, and we can all find research that supports our individual beliefs. But when it comes down to it, we need to find the balance for ourselves. We should focus on how things make us feel and what things do for our bodies. If things don't feel right, don't do it. If it isn't going to serve you, don't eat it. But if it feels right, do it. Make the best choices you can for yourself. That's all there is to it.

  1. Do you eat a lot of tofu then?
    Well, no. I don't eat it at all actually. Unfortunately tofu is pretty much all GMO at this point, just like corn. Will I NEVER eat it? I'd prefer not to, but I guess it's not a solid no. I'd prefer to not eat so much cheese, but I just can't quit it right now.
  2. Why am I not losing tons of weight by eating this way?Think about it. You've spent your whole life eating one way, so it has taken that long to get you to where you are right now. That includes your weight, activity level, health issues, etc. It took time, so your body will need time to heal too! Freelee really puts it nicely in her video today. As long as you're sticking with the right foods (fruits, veggies, grains, starches, and nuts/seeds - high-carb, low-fat), giving your body the fuel it needs, it'll heal and get you to where you want to be.
  3. Can I eat close to bedtime?
    I say, if you're hungry, then you need to eat. I wouldn't eat a huge meal or anything, but a snack before bedtime probably won't hurt. You don't want the food sitting in your gut all night, and your digestion will slow down with your body as bedtime approaches. So make a wise decision. But my lifestyle isn't a "diet" so there shouldn't be too many rules. It's up to you!
Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

The weight thing... I feel like that is happening for me. I lost a bit, now I'm so of stuck.. & it's not like my eating habits have drastically changed, either. I think I am starting to see more change finally since I began a job where I have to move more, but I'm not sure, yet. Hmmm.
