Why is Eating so complicated?

Eating has gotten so complicated hasn’t it? Sometimes it can get frustrating when the racing thoughts come to mind of what should I eat how much of it, when should I eat? It’s pretty crazy how that like everybody is familiar with antioxidants, saturated fat, omega -3 fatty acid carbohydrates, gluten, probiotics,folic acid, stevia, simple carbs, complex carbs, the list is endless! In general we know it’s good for us and it ends there, most of us do not know why it’s good for us.
The crazy thing is that with ALL of this information we have it seems like food is not food anymore and somehow the enjoyment and satisfaction of eating has turned into counting carbs and nutritional facts more than the simple enjoyment of eating a good meal.
Having so much information can overwhelm a diva!
Feeling frustrated and confused in general about how to eat is what promoted me to deep dive and learn about nutrition and learn about how to eat properly and make better food choices.
I don’t want to have to rely on someone to tell me what to eat. I have worked with personal trainers who have given me a ” list ” to eat from and it did not work for me long-term because I did not understand food and how it worked in my body. I eventually got bored with my ” list ” and went back to my X Mr. McNasty…..he can sure sweet talk a diva during those late night foodie calls……. I know it’s complicated.
I’ve had to learn from my body and listen to her of what food works what food doesn’t. It’s not over night it takes time. What I have found out is that typically if I’m craving a certain food means that I am lacking that nutrient, for example milk; if a diva starts stalking and tip cows at night for milk ….then ummmm you may need calcium however calcium foods are typically higher in fat calories so experts recommend to take a calcium supplement to help curb the craving but still get the nutrition without the extra calories when trying to lose weight.
#Foodtip broccoli is a great source of calcium!
Be Healthy Be Fabulous!
