Things I love lately

11 Feb

So I am always in to reading new things about health, fitness, diet, basically anything to do with that. I have read many books in the past i.e. In Defense of Food, Fast Food Nation, etc. So recently I just read Jillian Michaels-Master your Metabolism. WOW what an awesome book!!! I have major hormone levels and this book explains them all, and why they get messed up. I suggest everyone read this book. Not only does it talk about hormones but also talks about why you should eat non processed foods and more clean foods. She says “if it doesn’t grow from the ground, or does not have a mother DON”T eat it!” uhhh yeah hello!!! I rarely eat anything processed. I truly think the reason American’s have so many health problems are because of processed foods. I wish we lived in a country where everything was readily available such as: fresh fruits and veggies (without all the pesticides and steroids), fresh fish and poultry, basically anything you can find at a small market like you see in the movies. It sucks that America is so about now now now, fast  fast..we need to take the time to prepare our foods from wholesome ingredients from the ground, not a package!!! Anyway I can go on an on. Just read this book if it seems appealing.

    That book sounds awesome, I may just have to grab it from the library. :)
    I also write down my goals, what I eat, and journal every single day. It seems ocd to a lot of people, but it keeps me on track.
    I have all my goals taped up to my office wall as well so I can ‘see’ where I am going. :)
    Keep up the fabulous work!!
