When it comes to improving our diets so many people go along with the popular trend of cutting things out.
In this hysteria of subtraction, we focus on the wrong thing. When we extract/take out, the problem is exacerbated.
We create restriction. Fear around food. And a very poor relationship with it.
‘is this bad for me?’
‘that’s not healthy’
‘that’s full of chemicals’
‘processed food is terrible for you’
We fail to see the woods for the trees! The bigger problem. In fact the biggest problem with how our diet effects our health.
“Having ‘bad food’ in your diet isn’t the problem. Lack of nutrient dense food is!”
We become so obsessed with avoiding ‘the bad’ (not that there is any). We forget to include the ‘good’. The foods that make up these nutrient deficiencies!
Your diet is unique. But typically you could improve it by adding more foods that are:
*Minimally-processed “whole foods” (such as fruits and vegetables).
So I implore you. Stop cutting out! Start adding in!
