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.
