What you eat DOES matter, but it isn't the whole picture.
The world of nutrition is jam packed full of different people preaching different approaches. You can find whatever you are looking for - articles to support your beliefs - to tear them down - whatever you need the internet has your back.
My standpoint is that you need to find what works for you. And what works for you today, may not work tomorrow - also what does "work" mean? Health? Weight?
These clarifying questions are excellent to ask when you are trying to create change.
Now, back to my point.
It isn't all about food.
What do I mean by that? Well. I could tell you THE PERFECT DIET FOR YOU and if you are so stressed out following that diet, it isn't going to work.
If you follow that diet, but still only manage to get 5 hours of solid sleep that night. It isn't going to work.
If you follow that diet, but keep supporting bad relationships in your life. It isn't going to work.
If you follow that diet, and have a terrible internal monologue. It isn't going to work
If you follow that diet, but don't believe you can actually change. It isn't going to work.
Food plays an important role in healing.
But your mind.
It is more powerful.
Learning how to be kind to yourself. Kind to your path. Your progress. Developing patience. These things can be more impactful than the perfect meal plan.
