How come your best friend thrives off of eating a raw, vegan diet that leaves you feeling cranky, drained and constantly craving good old cooked food? Unfortunately, there isn’t a one-size fits all approach to healthy eating.
What works for some may not work for others.
So where does that leave you, how do you know what foods to eat? Use your body as a laboratory! Listen to it and learn what fuels you best. Experiment and keep a food journal to connect the dots. For example, start off each morning with a different breakfast. One morning eat a grain-based meal, the next morning have a breakfast high in protein, then the next morning have a light breakfast of fruit. Monitor and record how you feel 1-2 hours after eating. Maybe you will discover you feel sluggish and reaching for sugary snacks when you started the day off with a bowl of oatmeal. Use this information to create a “diet” that is unique to your needs!
Take the time, experiment, and listen to what your body is telling you!
The more you listen, the more you will learn!
