I've wanted to write about this for a while now because so many people have been giving me a hard time ever since I've adjusted my diet — and by hard time, I mean questioning my diet and my reason for eating the way I eat.
First of all, I absolutely did not have a choice. This diet is the only diet that has worked for my stomach, however, many people don't want to believe this. Because plant-based eating has become a trend lately, others are struggling to believe that my diet isn't just to gain attention. I'm definitely not complaining about everyone hopping on the bandwagon. After all, it's super helpful to follow others who share recipes that would be beneficial to you.
My diet is the best thing about my life, like, seriously. I enjoy eating plant-based meals more than anything in the world. While I'm certainly not a vegan, I do try my best to eat as healthy as I can. A new diet can be hard to stick to, especially when you're first starting out, but the best thing to do is make a routine and stick to it.
My morning and night routines are what makes my diet so fun and easy for me to stick to. It took me a while to get into a solid routine that I actually liked, but the more you try and adjust the better your routine and diet will be. Not only for your diet and health but in general. Having set routines is important because having a structure is super beneficial.
As I said before, it's been hard for people to understand why I eat the way I eat. Don't get me wrong, I love junk food and everything about it. It was really hard to make the adjustment to healthy all around eating, so taking it one step at a time makes it a lot easier. I still struggle with knowing when to stop eating or choosing something better for me over something I want. It's challenging, but if you're thinking about doing it, you have to just go for it. There is no time like the present.
I also understand that people won't ever understand why I eat this way — and that's totally okay. Everyone does what they think is best for them and that's all you can do. Eating this way has its pros and cons just like everything in the world. I truly enjoy making better choices and eating healthier for myself. It's something my mom has been very passionate about for a long time. Finally, I feel the same passion for a healthy body that she does. Healthy starts from the inside out. Taking care of yourself is extremely important.
If you're thinking about making the switch to a healthier diet, then do it! It's never too late.
