Food for Fuel
One of the things that being a Weight Loss Coach teaches you is to really pay attention to the foods you are putting into your body for fuel. It has been a very interesting experience for me to go through personally, as well as being a coach to others.
Prior to NutriMost, I ate healthy (for the most part). Afterward, I can say that it is extremely rare to find myself indulging in the "bad" things I used to crave. I choose to eat the healthy options about 99% of the time. The weekend pizza, candy, desserts, etc have truly fallen by the wayside for me. I have learned what foods make my body feel good and what foods make my body feel bad. Overall, it just isn't worth it to me to feel junky after I eat junk.
The most interesting part of it all is that I now actually tend to crave healthy foods. Fresh fruits are some of my go-to dessert choices and snacks are things like carrots with almond butter or a slice of Focaccia Flax Bread....who woulda thunk it?! And, even though I've been in Phase 6 for months now, I still eat from the Oil-Free Recipes on a regular basis...everything is just so good!
Tonight's dinner was the Orange Curry Chicken & Cabbage Rice straight from Oil-Free Recipes, but it is very easy to change the recipes up a little bit if you need to get some extra calories in. You can almost always bank of being able to add a tablespoon of coconut oil to a recipe or, if worst comes to worse, make a batch of Coconut Oil Chocolate to enjoy after the meal.
I can absolutely say that my mindframe on food has changed and I'm so grateful for that!
