However you come to reading this post on relationships with food, your rich story surrounding food is uniquely yours yet commonplace to many of us. You are not alone in your struggles, and realizing it’s time for that next change is just where you need to be.
Nobody (initially) likes the idea of limiting the intake of certain delicious foods. You work hard and deserve to indulge in the foods on your plate; however, if you are wanting to change your habits to achieve a happier and healthier you consider indulging oven-baked potato wedges instead of duck fat french fries, or switch from the chocolate mousse cake to the cacao-banana smoothie; you have the power. Within a matter of weeks, your body won’t want the fried foods or triple-cream cheese. Your body will crave the tart greens and sweet fruits, and your brain with new-found willpower will be there as your body guard when temptations arise.
Planning ahead becomes a treasure hunt. When you see it as a FUN challenge for you to overcome, nothing can stop you from owning that challenge, in fact, dominating that challenge. After all, we are talking about your blood pressure and waistline! You have no problem prioritizing other’s needs, what about dabbling in yours from time to time?
I get asked most about how I was able to maintain my diet and weight while traveling. Also, about how I was able to eat healthily while on planes and trains and in hotels and foreign cities. I have decided to start a series around eating healthy while traveling and how to take steps towards achieving your healthiest and happiest self as a road warrior.
