Get healthy and feel incredible with easy daily habits
This is going to be a very self-indulgent post… I have realized that the most popular posts on The Confidence Kitchen are ones that are really practical or include a small step that can be done on a daily basis. To that end, I have a new mantra/direction for my blog…drumroll…
“Get healthy and feel incredible with easy daily habits”
I have created a new “about.me” page that covers my philosophy and why I am writing The Confidence Kitchen. I excerpt some of it below…
I’ve gone down the rabbit hole and now I am fascinated by the current state of unnecessarily poor health in Western Countries. Once you scratch the surface, you realize things have gotten continually worse over the last 40-50 years, despite advances in modern medicine, and I believe that most of it is linked to poor leadership in diet recommendations. Heart disease and many, many other diseases including certain cancers, are reversible with the appropriate diet management plans. Why is this not more common knowledge? Why is there so much fear and attribution to fate, luck, or genetics?
I am a very curious person as my blog name suggests. The questions I am particularly interested in are why is there so much confusion about what we should be eating, when the answers are clearly there? Why are we comfortable prescribing harmful drugs instead of natural, proven solutions? Why do so many people think it’s incredibly hard to lose weight when the right knowledge makes it effortless? Why is heart disease even a problem, when we know exactly how to solve it? Why do we let so many people die from heart disease, diabetes, cancers, etc. when for the most part, they do not have to be a “natural part of ageing”, or some kind of “unlucky outcome of genetics”. Why do some people age rapidly, while others look 10-20 years younger than their actual age? How is it possible to live an amazingly healthy lifestyle in the middle of most people’s ridiculously busy lives? Why do many people resist or put off living healthily even though they know “they should” do it? And most importantly, what information do people need, to make tangible changes and see results in their lives? That is the key question for me.
Why is there so much fear and attribution to fate, luck, or genetics?
I am excited by a future where drugs are not the first option offered to tackle health. From what I’ve seen, it’s inevitable that we are headed in this direction. The science is there, but it will take years before the media and governments catch up.
I’m brimming with gratitude that I got ‘sick‘, I feel like I have stumbled upon a valuable “secret” that unlocks the door to a healthy and vital life and I want everyone to experience this.
Here’s to a healthy, vibrant, creative, prosperous, energetic, joyful, authentic, sexy new year!
To your health,
