When I eat like crap I…(………..)
What would you say to fill in the latter part of that sentence?
When I eat like crap I…?
- keep eating more crap
- don’t do anything productive
- feel like crap
- am bloated
- break out in acne
- avoid social outings with friends
The bullets above are just some of the things that can and DO happen to us when we eat like crap.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I think it is 100% acceptable to have days where you just DON’T GIVE A DARN and you eat the whole pizza, maybe even a big ice cream sundae or the bacon cheeseburger you have been craving (and fries–cause DUH). But, what I think is most important is the recognition or rather the awareness you have of your body that allows you to recognize that if you eat that food, you probably/most likely will NOT feel good afterward.
All aspects of life are best received when balanced. Nutrition, fitness, relationships, careers, vanity, friendships etc…
It is easy to become overly obsessed with something, and I am totally guilty of this as well.
My goal in sharing this quote “When you eat like crap, you feel like crap” is simply to try to share one of the biggest reasons why I am a proponent of clean eating.
I don’t count calories, or weigh my food, or only eat certain items, but I am very aware of how what I put in my body makes me feel.
I only choose to put good, nourishing, and wholesome foods into my body, because I am the best version of myself when I do so.
I guess what I am saying is, do yourself the solid of putting good fuel in your body and your body will reward you in remarkable ways.
When I eat like crap, I feel like crap!
and ain’t nobody got time for that!
