Over the years my blog has gone in different directions. I have always tried to focus on healthy, nourishing foods. But the content has taken many forms and gone in some extremes. I even wrote a post once about various diets and the pros and cons of each.
In time I have figured out that the most important thing is to listen to my own body. I have to take care of it, give it what allows me to thrive and not follow someone else’s rules.
I can tell someone else exactly what foods I avoid and what foods I eat regularly. But they should not follow the same diet. Everybody is unique and has different dietary needs.
That being said, there are some general guidelines that apply to most people. It is not about specific foods. It is about learning how to listen to your body and nourish your metabolism.
Whenever anyone asks me about getting on track with healthy eating, my first suggestion is to read The Nourished Metabolism by Elizabeth Walling. This is the best health-related book I have ever read. It helped me on my road to recovery. It even helped me more than “healing” diets like GAPS.
The Nourished Metabolism gave me the freedom to finally let go of rules and figure out what was best for me. I have read it multiple times and enjoy it every time I do.
The process of taking care of your body and healing is not an easy one. You may gain or lose weight. You may be very tired and need to cut back on your normal amount of activity. During this time it can be difficult to undergo some of the physical transformations.
That is where Love Your Body comes in. Elizabeth helps you learn to accept your body and marvel at what it can do. You don’t have to be a certain size or shape or at a certain fitness level. You need to love the body you are in and do your best to take care of it.
In my own healing journey I learned a LOT. I am very thankful for Elizabeth’s books and how they changed my perspective on health and nourishment.
I learned about how body temperature, digestion, hair, skin and even my mood are indicators of how well or how poorly my metabolism is working. I learned just how critical enough quality sleep is. I even learned that there are some wide-spread myths about salt, sugar and water intake.
If you are interested in really nourishing your body and feeling your best, The Nourished Metabolism is a great place to start!!
