I think that most people who make the decision to start living a healthier lifestyle go through a certain period of transition because, let’s face it; it isn’t that easy to break old habits overnight. What I and my friends and family have appreciated is how we have been able to start fresh by making easy, minimal changes in our diets and experiencing tangible and lasting results.
My immediate goal was to build my strength up after a really tough year of battling cancer. The surgeries and treatments took their toll on my body. The last thing that I wanted to do was to deprive myself of the foods that I enjoyed the most. Well, those foods happen to be listed on every “worst foods to consume” list in the world. Instead of eliminating these foods, I began using the NutriBullet and adding fruits, vegetables and raw nuts into my diet. Almost immediately, I began to feel stronger and more energetic.
As time went on and with regular use of my NutriBullet to consume nutritious foods, my desire for red meat, sugar and foods high in the bad fat category began to subside. My diet started to transition into something that I never imagined possible: clean eating! Why? Because I experienced an amazing change in my health. I began this process as a weak cancer patient who became stronger every day just by adding the NutriBullet to my daily routine to consume healthier foods. With my results, all I wanted to do was get stronger and I had the right tool to help me accomplish my goal. My friends and family who observed my quick recovery from cancer could not wait to begin their transition to a healthier lifestyle.
As my strength increased, I was able to begin and get through a regular workout routine. I feel at this point that I am at the strongest and healthiest weight in my life.
Starting out by making some minor nutritional swaps and then adding certain foods to our diets allows for an easy transition and much more attainable goals. I want to share with anyone who will listen and is concerned over eliminating the foods that they enjoy - give this method a shot. It’s a slow process, but the positive outcomes are endless and long lasting.
