Deprivation No More!
“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.”
If you have ever been on a diet, then you already have a good sense of the kind of discomfort it can create as you work to eliminate foods that you really like in an effort to get your weight under control or improve your health. And more often than not, people who put so much energy into these diets tend to find that after a period of time they stop working, and then those pounds seem to come back with a vengeance—sometimes even creating a situation where you are heavier and/or unhealthier than you were before you started. For many people, it becomes a cycle that in a very real sense is quite vicious.
Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. For the next episode of Life Mastery TV, I’ve invited back Diane Achatz, a health coach with a deep background in supporting people with diabetes, to share more of her wisdom on getting control of your diet situation—without the discomfort of deprivation! And while this conversation will shed light on some of the major challenges that diabetics have to contend with, I know that the information will be relevant to anyone who is looking to create a healthier life situation. Here’s a glance at what we’ll be discussing:
What you Really Want
When you set health goals, awareness is vital to your process. A lack of clarity and failing to understand your motivation are not the key to success! It’s important to take the dime to discover the “why” beneath the why.
What/Why am I eating?
What foods are you eating? Why are you eating them? And more importantly, how does eating these foods make me feel? There’s an easy way to honor both hunger and fullness. Having a healthier relationship with food empowers you to make better choices.
The Diabetic Roller-Coaster
If you are diabetic, acceptance sets you up to be more aware and open to learning that food deprivation isn’t the answer. Macronutrients are the most reliable way to control blood sugar, increase energy, balanced your hormones, and reduce levels of A1C.
It happens to everyone, but much like experiencing overwhelm, self-sabotage is a choice. Learn to recognize the signs, understand your own process, and eliminate judgment and guilt. You can learn which actions to take to keep yourself empowered.
Diabetes doesn’t have to hold you hostage, and there are simple and sustainable lifestyle changes that can be done by everyone. Look ahead: wouldn’t it be great to have better blood sugar control, lower A1C, and enhanced energy? Take advantage of Diane’s powerful tools to help you navigate the diabetes journey.
