As part of my training at IIN, we review over 100 different dietary theories. On top of that, everytime I’m browsing the Internet to do some extra dietary research for work and for my family’s personal nutrition needs - I’m constantly finding NEW ways to eat and nourish ourselves! The simple concept of feeding our bodies - simply for the sake of gaining energy and carrying on with our days is turning into an anxiety ridden, overwhelming, chaotic task! And we have to do it three times a day (at least) Every. Single. Day!! This can be intensely daunting and something we might just throw our hands up to and just deal with the consequences of whatever our potential intolerances might be or at the very least - continue to gain weight, lose energy and stay moody.
Unfortunately there is no one single way of eating that every single one of us should stick to. As much as the public health authorities have tried to map out a ‘healthy’ eating strategy on food guide ‘pyramids’ and ‘steps’ and ‘plates’ etc. It is clear that we are all different and must follow a healthy eating plan that suits us individually. This is what IIN refers to as ‘Bio-individuality.’ It is a concept that shows how each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run.
We are all extraordinary, unique creatures. Let's honor our bodies by feeding them the foods that serve them best. Yes, you may feel like "oh but I don't want to give up my bread or pizza or whatever…" To that I say - don't look at what you will 'give up,' look at what you will GAIN! Plus if you choose to work with me, we will have the opportunity to explore and experiment together with so many beautiful options and alternatives.
