Healthy, energetic people don’t do this

Healthy people don't do this

As much as most people just want to wake up and be healthy and vibrant, it’s a process. People don’t just magically go from dragging their rear end to ball of energy overnight.

As someone who’s hit a very big low in the past on the heath front, I know from experience the desperate longing to feel healthy. To feel not just well, but optimal. I craved it.

What were heathy, happy, energetic people doing that I wasn’t? What are they doing that you may not be?

I really thought I was eating well… I wasn’t, but I didn’t know any better. I figured I drank enough water… I didn’t. I knew I wasn’t exercising enough, but I justified that with I’m too busy.

I slowly made changes, and, yes, they helped. Every new thing I did, and stuck to, created a new way of thinking and being.

Yet, I was still missing something. This one thing is a big no no with healthy, energetic people. It’s also often exactly what many exhausted people, who may struggle to lose weight, are doing.

When I stopped doing this, there was a giant shift that allowed all the other steps I was doing to finally work. I went from extreme exhaustion and feeling unwell all the time, to who I am today.

What is it healthy, energetic people don’t do?

They don’t skip meals! Now before you go “that’s it” like I didn’t reveal a magic pill or something, understand this… when you skip a meal, you are telling your body that there’s a lack of food. It must hold on to everything it has. The body says “I have no idea when I’m going to get food again, so I’m hording”.

Healthy people ensure they get their breakfast in. There’s none of the “I’m not hungry in the morning” excuse. That’s BS. The body does not go 7-8 hours at night repairing, wake up and say, no that’s ok…I’ll hang on until noon. If there is no hunger, the signal has been tuned out. For some people, it’s so bad, they actually feel nauseous if they do eat.

So here it is… eat breakfast (even if you don’t feel like it), a morning snack, lunch, an afternoon snack, and an evening meal. If you need an evening snack, that’s fine too. Be a healthy grazer!

If breakfast is not your thing, at least make a healthy smoothie so you can sip on it. We should be hungry in the morning. If that’s not happening, it’s time to start stimulating your systems again. If weight loss or increased energy is your goal, this step alone, may make a major difference. Make healthy food choices.

Here’s a recipe I share with clients in my nutrition program (which is coming up really soon!). It’s from the book Slender with a Blender so all credit goes to them. If you’d like a copy of this book, please let me know. Email me if you’d like a copy.

This recipe is perfect for breakfast.

*I use Nutrimeals by USANA Health Sciences for many reasons.  They are my absolute favourite.  I have a few samples in my possession.  If you’d would like one, just let me know.  I’ll even give you a few bonus recipes 🙂

Are you a meal skipper? What meal do you skip the most. Tell me in the comments what meal or snack you skip, and share what you are going to do to correct that.

If you think you might need a little help, here’s some information on my September Nutrition Program. You can check out the program here, and join the list for information on this and future programs.

Love,
