The "Miracle" Diet... a Journey about Healthy Eating

As I begin to crack open my brand new textbooks for becoming a "Fitness Nutrition Specialist", I am looking forward to bringing you little bits and pieces of knowledge about how important eating right is.  My "Group Fitness Instructor" certification requires me to add continuing education credits to my resume; and so I have chosen to explore the nutrition area to specialize in.  Knowledge of exercise PLUS knowledge in nutrition sounds like a good match! 

A regular exercise routine several times a week is WONDERFUL!  There are so many benefits to exercising.  But it's only about 1/4 of the story.  The other 3/4 of the story, is what you're eating and drinking.

There are a lot of diet plans and miracle pills out there that claim a lot of promises. Some are helpful.  But most are just downright ridiculous AND dangerous!  As we jokingly hear so very often, "It's on the internet, so it MUST be true"... this statement makes me cringe, especially when it pertains to something as important as proper nutrition.  These are our bodies we're talking about!  Please do not buy into diet plans and miracle pills that sound too good to be true. Major red flag!

A good goal to set about what you eat and drink should not be about "losing weight".  But instead, it should be about fueling your body with balanced, healthy nutrients... and in return for fueling your body properly, one of the awesome "side effects" is the losing the weight part!

We live in such a fast-paced society... the get-it-quick, needed-it-yesterday, microwave vs. oven way of life has seeped into our mentality of how we should lose weight.  But if you really want the weight loss to stick, I want to encourage you to be patient and be smart.  Slow and steady wins the race, right?

So, as I begin this journey of study time for the next couple of months, I hope you'll join me as I share little tidbits with you along the way.  Here's to us both learning something new and refreshing about eating smart!

Smiles and blessings,
