There's No Such Thing as a One-Size-Fits All Diet.

The coronavirus pandemic has pushed health to the front of many of our minds. A lot of us if we weren't worried about health and nutrition before are starting to get more health conscious now.


In July I enrolled at Institute For Integrative Nutrition where I have been studying bio-individuality, which means that we are all unique and recognize and honor our uniqueness is the key to health and happiness.


Your body is the only one you have so its critical you listen to what fuels and nourishes it and gets you going.


During IIN's training I have been learning that there isn't one way to eat healthy or one "diet" that works for everyone. There is a saying "One person's food is another person's poison." The best person to know what's best for you... is you!!!


I do not eat any animal products. It works for me. I feel energized, happy, and healthy. But because I am plant based doesn't mean another person should be. It might now work for them and their needs. I have tried Keto. I did not enjoy it. But I know so many that swear by Keto, or Paleo. I mean there are so many "diets" out there. Low carb, low fat, raw vegan, Atkins, The Zone, WW, Mediterranean diet, I can go on and on.


Nowadays so many people have dietary concerns because of health conditions. They are trying to improve their overall fitness and well being by eating healthier. But like I said before there is no such thing as a one size fits all diet. Even identical twins don't react the same way to the same foods. Dietary guidelines can not be boiled down into simple rules.


I have been learning that bio-individuality doesn't just relate to food and what you put on your plate. It relates to our relationships, careers, activity, and spirituality too.


I will say for food, I encourage you to crowd your plate with veggies and fruit.


Relationships: We all need to give and receive love. Maintain healthy, strong relationships, will help you live a long and happy life.


Career: Too many of us feel stuck in or jobs. Find a long-lasting career is essential to feeling fulfilled both mentally and emotionally.


Physical Activity: Working out is good for your body. Find what works for you, whether it's running, yoga, Barre, Pilates, HIIT, or walking the dog.


Spirituality: Spirituality doesn't just mean attending a religious service. Religion is part of it for some, but it can mean meditation, or even being in nature. Maybe journal outside and connect with nature.


It is hard to set aside fad diets and trends but follow your instincts. See what makes you feel good in your body, energized, and happy.
