A Commitment to Healthy Eating

18th fact about me: I have always been fat. What do we do to all those delicious food? Eat them, right? Lol. If you’re interested about the other 17 random facts about me, refer to my previous post.

I had never really cared about the food I take until I became diabetic. Before, as long as it’s edible, it’ll be in my mouth and inside my body. Although I’m aware now of the things my body need, doesn’t need, shouldn’t need, I still eat unhealthy food. It’s just hard to stop.

I can jot down reasons why it’s hard to stop eating unhealthy food, personally. But I don’t want to. I don’t want to have an excuse to not eat healthy food all the time.

I’ve recently realized that caring for your body, for your well-being doesn’t just include regular exercise and meditation; it also includes taking in nutrients you need and not taking in things you don’t need (e.g., junk food, processed food).

Eat more foods that grow from trees and plants and eat less foods that are manufactured from plants. (from Tumblr)

So if you are like me who find it difficult to stay away from unhealthy food, make a commitment now. Let us make a commitment to love our bodies more by choosing to eat healthy foods all the time. Let us not deprive ourselves of the nutrients we needed.

I’ll always tell myself this: Eat because you need to, not because you want to.

A healthier year to all of us!
