How To Avoid Fat Shaming Pitfalls

 

When it comes to our bodies, we can be our own worst enemy. Unfortunately, from the time we are young children, we learn how to talk poorly to ourselves, and over time, these words diminish our self-worth and confidence. Anytime you say that you “hate” a certain area of your body or you refer to food as the enemy, you are essentially fat-shaming yourself and you will end up identifying with what you are saying. Whether you are 20 or 70, it’s time to let go of the negative body talk and adopt more forgiving thoughts. Here are a few ways to get over the body-shaming obstacle and start living happily in the body you were blessed with.

The Importance of Gut Health Part 1

 

When it comes to our bodies, we typically associate good health with steady blood pressure numbers, an acceptable body mass index (BMI), and a strong heart. However; there is a whole lot going in the depths of our bellies that contribute to our overall health. Having superb gut health is key to a high functioning digestive system and will even benefit your mental ability and mood. When it comes to the bacteria in your gut, there is both good and bad. The bad bacteria feeds on the bad stuff such as sugar and fat, and the good bacteria feeds on fiber, which happens to be a nutrient that only five percent of Americans get enough of. It is recommended that we get 25 to 30 grams of fiber per day, and any less will contribute to starving our good bacteria, which in turn, leads to insufficient digestion robbing us of the brain-boosting chemicals we need to flourish. Here are some tips for optimizing your digestive health…

The Importance of Vitamin D & How to Know If You Are Deficient: Part 1

 

We hear a lot about vitamin D deficiency during the winter months, and there is a good reason for that. Worldwide, an estimated one billion people suffer from vitamin D deficiency, which can lead to osteoporosis, fatigue, back pain, depression, anxiety,  illness, muscle pain, and hair loss. Our bodies need 400-800 IU’s of vitamin D every day, however; some doctors are suggesting even more than that. Because this important vitamin is made from cholesterol when our skin is exposed to the sun, it can be kind of tricky to get the recommended amount during the winter months, when we are far less exposed to the sun.
