Do you struggle to avoid the foods that are better for your health?
I know exactly how it feels to start with good healthy eating intentions on Monday morning, only to give up on Monday evening!
After years of being burnt out, leading to an eventual diagnosis of M.E./Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, the consultant told me that I needed to get a good balance of rest and exercise, and to eat well.
He was right of course; if all I wanted to do was manage the symptoms I was experiencing!
But I was only 36 years old, and I had a young son who relied on me to get out of bed each day, having been widowed 6 years earlier. So, I was damned if I was going to carry on enduring symptoms such as…
• Not having enough energy to take a shower, let alone enjoying time with friends and family afterwards!
• Brain fog that stopped me doing the simplest of tasks
• Zero concentration span, which prevented me watching a film or reading a book
• Muscle aches and joint pains, like having a continuous bout of flu
• Food intolerances
• Depression etc.
I realised that if I wanted to recover completely from these debilitating symptoms, which were ruining my life, I needed to do so much more than what the consultant told me!
And I did!
Within 4 years, I had found the winning combination and recovered for good. That was over 12 years ago and I’ve never had a whiff of Burnout, let alone a relapse of M.E.
In fact, I surprise myself all the time with the amount of energy I consistently have, even when life throws its little challenges!
There are many lifestyle elements to recovering from Burnout or M.E./CFS for good, and I created the ENERGY Booster System as a result of everything I learned during those recovery years, which has also led to others recovering from this 21st Century epidemic.
But if I were to give one life-changing tip, which keeps my energy levels high even now, it would be to…
Eliminate ALL the foods that act as a poison to our body and replace them with those that act as a medicine.
This has to be the single most powerful, and fastest way, for anyone to see an increase in energy levels and better mood, and to reduce, or even get rid of aches and pains altogether.
Easier said than done!
I know, I know, I hear you! That’s easier said than done!
I understand the challenges of having to change my diet over night just to be able to function, because my body just doesn’t seem to tolerate the foods it used to.
During the years of being burnt out, and in the lead up to the M.E. diagnosis, I seemed to suffer constantly with
- stomach cramps,
- bloating, gas,
- fluid retention and more
and one day I visited a naturopath to see if I could get to the root of all this discomfort.
After some tests, she gave me a list of all the foods that for some reason I had become intolerant to. It was as if my body was so exhausted, it just couldn't digest certain foods, and to heal my body I needed to eliminate those foods altogether.
Finding and learning healthy alternatives was a minefield!
I started with all good intentions, feeling relieved that finally I knew what was causing some of my symptoms, but I hardly got through one day before I was craving bread and savoury snacks.
Not only that, shopping for food, which was exhausting enough for me as it was, became even more tiresome…reading all the ingredients on the packages and trying to find alternatives to the ingredients that I was used to cooking with.
It was a minefield!
But I knew that to recover from all the discomfort I was going through, I had to be totally rigid with my diet, so I found a way to make it much easier to stick to the foods that were better for me.
The secret was to find GOOD, DELICIOUS alternatives to the foods and dishes I loved, so that I didn’t feel hard done by or like I was missing out.
Over the years, I have done just that. It has taken time, but I finally have enough healthy alternatives to the foods I love to eat, making it easier to stick to a healthy way of eating WITHOUT feeling like I’m depriving myself!
Results were amazing!
I was blown away by the almost immediate increase in my energy levels and the improvement to my normally low mood.
After just 3 days of eliminating the foods that were acting like a poison to my body, the stomach cramps, bloating, gas, and even fluid retention went away. I even began to lose the stubborn pounds I had been holding onto for sometime!
Feeling like this, after just 3 days, along with having found delicious, healthy alternatives that I WANTED to eat, made it so much easier to carry on with my new eating habits.
And the best bit is, after avoiding those trigger foods for a couple of years, I no longer had the intolerances, and can now eat all foods with no obvious side effects.
But since finding alternatives to the foods that could potentially act as a poison to my body, I no longer crave them, and therefore don’t eat them to excess, which could eventually lead to the return of certain symptoms.
And yes, if I do ever eat certain foods to excess, like bread, cakes and savoury snacks, I start to notice the negative effects on my energy and mood, which I see as a little nudge from body, telling me to stop what I’m doing, and get back to the healthier choices. And within a day or two, I’m back on track, feeling great again!
