Stop eating junk food
Whilst speaking to a client today who has recently moved to Milton Keynes from Toronto I asked her what she thought of Milton Keynes, she replied that it doesn’t seem as health conscious as she thought it would be. Having lived in Toronto where she explained to me that there was a health food store, smoothie bar or organic restaurant etc on every corner, Milton Keynes does not seem to offer the same. This got me thinking about the ratio of junk food restaurants in Milton Keynes to those that are healthy ones, I have not lived here for a long time but I really couldn’t think of many places that sell clean healthy food. I understand that there are some out there and some I am yet to discover but the healthy image that Milton Keynes promotes is a little tainted by this ratio. I feel junk food has its place in society but not to the degree that it currently has, the food is essentially all about taste and not a great deal about health. So here’s the thing, do you need to keep eating this crap all the time? It makes you fat, sick and dependent on more (addicted). Going back to my previous statement it does taste amazing though! But if I were to eat it more than a few days in a row I would definitely feel worse for it. So why don’t you sit back and think about this and really evaluate what you are putting in your mouth and the justification that you are giving yourself to why it is ok for you to do so. The only actual reason you should be eating this food is that you don’t have any respect for your body and don’t really care for the consequences. I doubt anyone can really say that though. So why don’t you try something real simple, keep eating junk food but half one of the meals that you usually have this week, next week completely remove that junk food meal and have something real and healthy, the following week cut another meal in half, the following week remove it and replace it. Keep doing this for as long as it takes to clean up your diet, it might take ages but eventually your diet will be clean and the transition towards health would have been a smooth and easy process. The terrible side effects of this process are that you will, lose weight, feel more active, sleep better, look better and live longer. Sounds terrible eh………..
