Clean Eating And What It Takes To Keep The Weight Off
“Compared to following a vegan diet, eating a pescetarian diet means there’s less risk of nutritional deficiencies and it’s easier to meet the recommended levels of vitamin B12, iron and zinc. Seafood contains Omega-3 and other fatty acids that have a protective impact on your heart health. It’s also anti-inflammatory
The following questions above the paragraph played over n he back of my mind for some time in me venturing on this new-found healthy lifestyle change, and I did not know honestly if I was ever going to reach this place where I am now because I’d always have had a romance with food whether I was sad, and or happy I would eat the foods I loved. My weight never went over 230 Ibs and I stand 5’10 feet so everyone would always say that I looked fit and thick for my body type but I was not attracted to the body type that I had in the past body that I once resided in.
When I was in transition from one season of my life into the next I wanted the new me to reflect the woman that I knew was being birthed out from a place where when I looked back at my reflection in the mirror I would be able to smile, and now that I work hard on the inner and outer parts of myself. When I decided to “Love my body.” I decided to freely share my journey, and with the ups, and down of how everything was going but even as I made that declaration I still failed to upload the transformation. So I am going to share the structure of the things that I ate to lose weight, and How I am currently keeping it off.
in the month of July on the 13 day of the year 2020, I enter into the 30 days healthy lifestyle change #30303 and I was going up against myself in this challenge to lose some weight, and also to feel good about myself again because life at that time and place in my life had me weighted down, and not having no sense of hope. I was on a cleanse, and I was on a no-meat diet, no soda drinking, and no sweet intake. This was insane to me because I did not think I could do it, but I was amazing myself at how I was sticking with everything that this challenge was throwing my way.
After completing the #30303 challenge I decrease my weight by 11 Ibs I was not satisfied with just losing that weight; so I took some time to enjoy the success of that weight, and in just 2 short months I gained it all back because I allowed life to grip me, and I started eating unhealthy again. I was so displeased with myself, and I was determined to take the weight off again, and this time I was going to place a system in place to learn to love my body even when life gets too heavy. I promised myself that I was not going to run back to the unhealthy foods that made me feel good but were not good for me.
The month of November came around, and I took another leap of faith to make the commitment to eat clean and to forever give up meat. For 30 solid days, I cleansed my body of any meat, and all sweets, and all other things that I did not want to take on this journey of eating clean. The good stuff that I infused my body with was oatmeal, protein shakes, and oysters, and wild tuna for extra protein, and I made sure that I took time to engage in the process Just like I did the first time around..

I am going 2 months strong with absolutely no meat, and no dairy, and no sweet. I know that this newfound freedom in how I am treating the contents of what I place in my body is so good for me. In my life, I have faced struggles with being an emotional eater, and to have overcome it a few years back It’s so freeing to be at this pace in my life, and treating my body well.
