I want to use this blog to inspire people to live a healthier lifestyle and to feel happier and more balanced through a diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables. Eating mostly fruits and vegetables will clean your body, will make you lose unnecessary body fat and most importantly make you the healthiest and happiest person you can be.
It is not all about how we physically look, but also about how happy, fit and balanced we are. Healthy people are happy people and happy people are the most beautiful & inspiring people I know.
My suggestion to everyone is to aim for health and not for losing weight. I know weight is a big issue and many women are searching for the perfect diet to lose weight, but I think it is so much more effective to focus on gaining health through nourishing our body with the freshest ingredients rather than focusing on weight loss. The weight loss is going to come naturally anyways. See it as a positive side effect of eating that way. Leaving out meat, dairy products and processed foods will automatically make you fit, lean and healthy.
First, when I came across this lifestyle, I didn’t think about being vegan or giving my diet any kind of label. I was so attracted by all the beautiful looking fruits that I naturally wanted to eat them all the time. They made me feel great, cleared up my skin, improved my digestion and gave me so much energy. I knew I was doing the right thing for my body and just needed the nutritional knowledge to understand why we literally are what we eat.
It is so important to remember where our food comes from and that the less processed the better. The sugar found in fruits is the healthiest source of energy for us and is doing us nothing but great so there is no reason why you should ever limit your fruit intake.
These simple guidelines are basically what healthy eating is all about. For some people that means not having any meat and dairy and for others it may mean to start the day with a green smoothie and a bowl of fruit but to end the day with a regular chocolate bar.
My best advice is to be open for every kind of diet and to try things first before you judge them. Every one of us has a different body, a different metabolism and most importantly we all have different health goals.
I want to inspire you to approach healthy eating in a positive way without ever feeling restrictive:-).
We shouldn’t make the healthy diet our main focus in life but instead use the benefits we get from eating that way to perform better in all other parts of life.
Sending you lots of love and positive vibes,
