I am not here to sell anything. I am not here to tell you I've got a magic pill, wrap, or diet that will help you lose a huge amount of weight in a ridiculously short amount of time. I know those things don't work. Depriving your body of nutrients is not how you lose weight. Juice cleanses are a way to make money and to be frank, make you poop, a lot. Think about it, juice is super high in sugar. Why would you want to consume only sugar and expect to lose weight? Your liver and kidneys already filter and "cleanse" your body of impurities, toxins, and other sludge, so why do you need something external to do what your body already does on its own? I'm not talking about the exceptions here. I understand the disease process. I get sometimes medicine is needed. But why would you put something in a healthy body when it doesn't need it? The expression "if it isn't broke, don't fix," fits this scenario.
My purpose is to maybe reach a couple people and remind them it's not that hard to get back to healthy. Lately we have tried a little too hard with all of these fads and have really forgot the simplicity of maintaining health. Eat right, exercise, and be positive. That is it. Everyone can fit in a little physical fitness everyday. We as a species have just become lazy. Really, think about it. We aren't being chased by predators that want to eat us on a daily basis like our distant ancestors. We aren't fighting for survival. We can literally press a button and have a whole host of things delivered to our homes and the only effort we have to put in is getting up off the couch and opening our front door to collect said items. What we are forgetting is that our bodies need specific things to stay healthy. Exercise is one of them.
I understand that trying a new weight loss product or diet is tempting. I, myself, have been desperate enough to believe in "miracle" products. Who wouldn't want to sprinkle some magic dust on a deep fried Twinkie and lose 20 pounds? It sounds amazing! Sadly, that doesn't even register on being logical.
I am on a journey. I am working at getting back to optimal health. I know there are going to be road blocks. I know this is going to challenge my sanity at times. It is a whole lifestyle change. I will be posting some recipes that are healthy and tasty. Those can be found on the HEALTHY EATS page. I will post my workouts that I do on a weekly basis. Sometimes there might be some tips on how to improve on aspects of fitness, for example, how to be a better runner. All things fitness will be on the CHALLENGE YOUR BODY page.
This is my challenge, this is my journey, one hundred percent. But if you want to join me, I would enjoy the company.
