Measure this! Count that! Subtract!Subtract! Calculate! Repeat.

Oh am I ever becoming frustrated with the amount of people out there still counting calories, and going on weight loss programs such as Weight Watchers, that (generally speaking) make people turn themselves into boring human calculators with tasteless, unsatisfying, and boring food.We are turning our fun of preparing delicious meals into a boring repetitious drill of crunching numbers and math calculations rather than sitting back and enjoying the beauty of satisfying truly nourishing foods.

It is the year 2013 and we must understand that the “calorie paradigm” of the 90’s is way long gone. It’s time to sit with the truth that calories are created in a lab and therefore should NOT be analyzed so meticulously. That number has nothing to do with how your body will metabolize it! Don’t you think it’s time we wake up to the realization of how repetitious and boring that it, not to mention how annoying your life becomes as you tally up what you are eating each day!? Not that I am against keeping a food journal, but the purpose of that journal should mostly be on how food makes you feel and to get a good look into your habits.

The other thing that is unnerving for me is WEIGHT WATCHERS. You know that fancy program that has hired world class celebrities as spoke’s people, taking over your commercials, and is ran by a meticulous point system? How on earth did we lose ourselves into becoming so strict with foods. We are overweight because of 1 thing! FOOD ADDITIVES. Considering most of the 100 calorie packaged foods, and weight watchers brand foods contain toxic ingredients you cannot even pronounce – how on earth do you expect your body to metabolize them! Think about it….When given proper elemental and physical nutrient dense foods, the body no longer has cravings and you become more intuitive on what, when, and how much you need to be eating. Like magic!

Now that we are at the beginning of 2013 I want us to take the time out to re-educate ourselves on foods and well-being practices for the now, rather than being strict, calculated and linear while eating the wrong foods, and getting hung up and involved in unsustainable weight loss programs. Now is the time to take your power back and learn to tune-in to your body and allow YOU to be your guide.

This year it is my goal to re-educate as many people as possible, so we can begin to re-program ourselves for lasting success for the world we live in today. Lets make the connection between the outcome of our personal success and what we put into our mouths.
