Bioindividuality, trust yourself.
We tend to get overwhelmed by the fact that there are every day new diets, tips and tricks that sometimes even contradict each other and our brains get all messed up trying to follow the most appropriate advice. My approach is to develop a practise that allows us to listen to our bodies and adjust to what it needs in the present moment. No one person is the same, therefore what works for someone might not work for someone else and at the same time, something that worked for you in the past might not be appropriate months or even only weeks later.
A healthy lifestyle based in foods provided by nature. Ingredients that make you feel good inside and outside by following simple but delicious recipes. There is a lot of confusion in nutrition and health. By going back to basics and limiting our diet to consumption of natural ingredients we allow are bodies to be nourished with foods our organism is designed to digest. Eat organic and local.
In search of the truth
Nutrition and studies are constantly changing which brings many advances and benefits but at the same time we can often feel overwhelmed by information, tips, theories and "miracle diets" that sometimes have no scientific foundation. Many professionals can indicate certain practises and products are the best, the most healthy but then we all end up confused and being marketing victims. Because of this, I want my clients to learn to differentiate what is true and whats not.
Don´t accept, don´t reject, contemplate.
I'm not trying to create and impose a diet to my clients but rather inspire them to investigate and experiment to find whats best for them while being accountable for their personal findings. What we resist tends to persist so if we are constantly depriving ourselves from our favourite meals, the need or rebellion to eat the forbidden foods will end up coming up, specially under emotional circumstances.
No diets, change your lifestyle.
Therefore, I don't propose a diet based on my client's willpower and effort to avoid foods but rather in building a sustainable lifestyle that they enjoy. When this occurs clients start to crave natural foods, fruits, vegetables and end up making decisions from their hearts and not because someone said it would make them look or feel better. Its all about enjoying the journey!
Primary vs Secondary Foods
When I first talk about this concept with clients, many sense that primary foods are greens or vegetables but the fun fact is that primary foods can actually nurture us more than actual food even though they aren't. Primary foods include Relationships, Physical Activity, Career Development and Spirituality. Why eat all the kale in the world if we are deficient in our relationship with others or with ourselves?
