Happy New Year!
Another year down…another one beginning. Where does the time go? It seems the older I get, the more aware I am of how important good health and vitality are and what do I want out of the time I have left on this earth. Our individual desires may differ from one to another, but the means by which we all get there starts the same way, with FOOD. Today, we’re going to dive into this new trending diet called the “Whole 30.”
What will you make of 2018? If healthy, beautiful skin is in the line-up of goals, let me share with you exactly how to achieve it by eating clean. It is not going to be easy, but it’s doable. Changing the food you put on your plate will improve your sleep, energy levels, mood, body composition, motivation, self-confidence and quality of life. Your diet impacts every system and every cell in your body and this has everything to do with how fast and well we age.
Side note: Happy, fit, motivated and confident people appear more physically attractive than people who are not.
Eating clean will help correct hormonal imbalances and digestive issues. It will reduce inflammation and both physical and psychological stress. This is turn will create and deliver vital nutrients and oxygen to the entire body, expelling harmful toxins and efficiently resulting in radiant hair and skin, strong nails and a trim waistline.
Yes, customized clinical treatments and products are beneficial for beautiful skin, but they are only one part of the anti-aging equation. Correcting damage already done instead of preventing it from the start has been the focus of anti-aging remedies. Like many of us where damage has already occurred, it’s not too late to actually reverse a big part of it. How do you do this?
1. Increase nutrient intake and absorption
2. Decrease exposure to toxins both internally and externally
Many of you have asked me, “So what do I eat?” There are so many opinions of what constitutes a healthy diet that it can be very difficult to determine what to eat. Certain diets may work better for some people than for others. For example, different body types may do/feel better with a vegetarian diet versus a meat-eating diet. Don’t get caught up in all of the confusion. All healthy diets include the common basic principles:
• Whole foods (not processed or packaged)
• Plant-based diet (bulk of diet is rich in fruits vegetables)
• Eat foods that has not been tampered with – basically avoid toxins (chemical
additives, pesticides, genetically modified).
Where do I start for 2018 gorgeous skin, hair and nails? The Whole 30!
My family and I are starting January 8th. Who wants to join me?
What is The WHOLE 30?
The WHOLE 30 in a nutshell is a 30-day reset button with our health, our habits and our relationship with food. Although The WHOLE 30 is designed to change your life permanently, it is only 30 days of eliminating specific foods demonstrated by science to disrupt your metabolism and hormones, damage your digestive tract, and burden your immune system. The WHOLE 30 will increase collagen and elastin production (reducing fine lines and wrinkles), will decrease inflammation that can cause hyperpigmentiaton (brown spots), fine lines, wrinkles, acne, eczema, psoriasis, blah blah blah, and can normalize hormones keeping our skin clear, evenly pigmented, plumper and well-hydrated.
