Clean up your diet! – Estes Park Trail-Gazette

The topic of “cleansing your diet” is good. Even without committing to a 30-day program or other diet. The discipline of a strict diet is difficult. Using the Whole-30 diet as an example: no preservatives, no grains, no dairy, no sugar, no alcohol. Not only does it require a lot of discipline, but it also requires shopping, planning, preparation, and that discipline.

It would be seriously beneficial for all of us to look at what we eat and get rid of some of the processed foods, sugars and extra calories that have become a habit in our daily lives. The benefits of a healthy diet are numerous. We don’t pay attention to what a healthier diet can do to us. A few years ago, when many of our locals participated in the “30” through our hospital, I came across various articles advertising the benefits of healthy eating. I found this one and thought it would be a great topic this week.

From the author of “Well-fed” Melissa Joulivan came an article she wrote on her website, preaching the benefits of “cleansing your diet.” Thirty reasons, to be exact!

You will sleep longer and healthier. When the sugar is gone and there is protein / fat, you will sleep so well.

You will enjoy constant energy. No more highs and lows in your energy levels.

You will wake up with optimism and alertness.

You will say goodbye to digestive distress. Forget about gas, rumbling in the stomach and “uncomfortable experiences in the bathroom.” Once you get used to healthy things, from now on it will be smooth.

You will be happier. When blood sugars are stable, life is happier.

You will be calmer. Anxiety and can be caused by sugar.

You will be clearer.

You will drink more water. Instead of these sweet drinks, you will have to replace it with water and there is nothing wrong with that.

You will eat more vegetables and you know what that means. Nutrients and energy!

You will enjoy your food more.

You will feel the difference between emotional appetite and real hunger.

You will find new favorite foods. There is much more space in your kitchen and on your plate when you get rid of bad things.

You will have fun experimenting in the kitchen. So true, it’s a great way to try new recipes and ideas.

You will become more organized. Healthy eating requires a little more advance planning, which encourages the organization regarding your diet.

You will get out of the burden of emotional eating.

You will learn about yourself. You will learn how your body looks, acts and feels when there are good things to work from.

You will kill the sugar demon. Once you run out of sugar, you will know that it is in your power to control it in the future.

You will make new friends.

You will positively influence others. Give this great example!

You will learn more about how your body works.

Your skin will be brighter. Sleep, water, vegetables, healthy fats and a lack of sugar contribute to clean, younger skin.

Your hair will be more shiny. Sleep, water, vegetables, healthy fats and a lack of sugar also contribute to shiny hair and healthier nails.

Your abdomen will be flatter. At the end of the day, the swelling from dairy products and legumes will disappear.

Your workouts will feel invigorating.

You can have your best workouts.

You will feel complete.

You may lose weight or gain muscle or both; only if you add the exercise factor.

Your body image will improve.

Food will become more important and food less important at the same time. You will begin to realize how important a healthy diet is for your body and you will lose this need to “live to eat”. Instead, you will “eat to live.”

You will stop dieting and just eat, which is the best reason to clear your diet. When you take out all the “non-food” food and replace it with real food, you can stop analyzing how much you eat, when you eat, where you eat. Quantities still matter to some degree, but you can stop counting calories and give up feeling guilty.

Think about “cleansing your diet” and see what it does for your health.
