Thanks for the love BET.com

BET.com reposted a random Instagram post of mine…

Thank you for all the amazing generous comments on IG & Twitter. Since then people have asked if there’s a secret trick to looking younger than our actual years,¬† but… Feeling good in your body at any age is more my aesthetic.

I’ve said in earlier posts after dealing with fibroids and the underlying conditions, including a hormone imbalance that had plagued me pretty much my entire life, I pulled my health together, and it was a long uphill slog and a half, at my age, but so worth it.

One of the side effects of nourishing the body on a cellular level with whole foods,¬† pumping¬† oxygen in muscles from exercise, and not smoking¬† is ‘younger’ looking muscles and skin. In other words, looking younger can be a¬† side effect of healthy living.

People could save a ton on Botox etc if they’d lay off smoking and pills, if only for vanities sake.

My body has less aches and pains if I eat right. My mind is less moody if I eat right…. So for me, worth it.

Stop back for my next post, on¬† why i think ‘all foods in moderation’ doesn’t work for some of us emotional over eaters.

Some nutrient void processed foods have addicting qualities.¬† we¬† gorge not because we’re gluttonous or weak but because¬† they’re salt sugar and fat bombs… that’s the holy trinity, a combo that’s almost impossible to resist.

I really like the book Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us. It breaks this topic down in a fascinating way, reads like a thriller. Super helpful to see how manipulated we are by adverts and seduced by ‘food products’ masquerading as food.
