Your unlike most and have a knack of making the right decisions of what you put in your body and getting the job done, but the battle isn't won. Hate to burst your bubble, but eating clean and exercising sometimes aren't enough.
Sure, you may be eating the right foods but are you eating the right portions? Are you getting enough sleep? In order to maintain optimal health, you may need to take control of how much you eat as well as when you eat.
Even for the most steadfast of us sometimes fall short of our goals. Whether it be a cheat day with burgers topped with the works and loaded with fries or that happy hour where you had one too many drinks only to say "I'll make it up tomorrow"
If this sounds familiar, don't beat yourself up we are all human. The fact of the matter is your body needs a break every once in a while. Over doing anything gets old fast. The importance of understanding your shortcomings makes us better prepared for future outcomes. Maya Angelou put it best when she said "You may not control all of the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them."
Is your circadian rhythm off? Our circadian rhythm is our bodies sleep/wake cycle. It is recommended that you get 7-9 hours of sleep nightly to prepare for the day ahead of you. Studies from sleep.org show that our cell phones can cause more harm than we think. This is especially true when we bring our phones to bed with us. It is recommended that you ditch your cell phone at least 30 minutes before bed to get a good night's sleep. Our cell phones emit a blue light that reduces levels of melatonin which is a hormone that plays an important role in our sleep/wake cycle or circadian rhythm.
A great method to compliment you on your path to staying healthy is a routine detox. A well-balanced detox not only helps your body cleanse residual toxins but also contributes to increased mental clarity and improved energy levels. Ever feel like you are running on a low battery? Demands from work and family can zap us of the rest we need. When we don't get sufficient rest we tend to make poor choices, in particular, what we put in our bodies which is why a detox is like hitting the reset button on your computer. You already possess a degree of discipline few have, why not take advantage of a detox?
Once your body is cleansed of impurities it will embrace fresh organic fruits and vegetables more aggressively. While you're detoxing how about adding beneficial nutrients to replace poor options such as turmeric to your diet. Turmeric has been shown to reduce inflammation which can cause diabetes, Alzheimer's, depression, and even cancer. By no means does this mean to give up on your favorite foods, but how about forging meat and eggs for a week or so to see how it makes you feel. Studies show that meat and eggs contribute to increased levels of inflammation.
In conclusion, we have taken the guesswork out of the equation of what to eat not to eat, you can find our custom meal plan here which is equipped to help you achieve your fitness goals with targeted meals and recipes geared toward reducing stress inflammation that we've all grown accustomed to. As an added bonus you can try a free sample of our detox capsules to jumpstart a better you.
