Stop dieting and start living!


Will you take the bait?

Rather than joining the millions of New Year’s resolution dieters this year, we should make this the year we forget the latest diet trends, permanently. We need to ignore the highly-marketed and sometimes dangerous fads that we hear about on social media or someone’s blog. Instead, let’s have a clear vision in 2020 and finally make a lasting decision to make meaningful lifestyle changes in how we eat. It’s time we finally become honest with ourselves to appreciate a simple fact that we already know deep down, that the foods we choose to eat can and do have profound effects on our health, both positive and negative.

When we focus on improving the nutritional quality of the foods we eat rather than reducing the quantity, we experience an unexpected type of freedom. Chronic dieters know too well the mind games that we play and excuses we concoct when dieting. These leave us with feelings of guilt, low self-esteem, and sometimes even depression. The whole concept of eating becomes an internal struggle, such that even when we “win” a battle, we are left feeling deprived.

Eating should be an enjoyable experience!

Imagine if you could eat unlimited quantities of delicious new foods that you have never tried before? With every guiltless bite you would flood your bloodstream with the thousands of protective antioxidants and healing phytochemicals that your body has been craving. These can help your body burn fat, reduce inflammation, reopen clogged arteries, reverse diabetes, and even help fight cancer. By eating this way your weight normalizes, energy improves, pain resolves, and medications often become unnecessary.

In short, you become free.

At Cleveland Nutrition we help people do just that. We help people transition their diets to a more natural, whole-food plant-based way of eating that eliminates foods that are medically recognized to promote disease progression, and emphasizes foods that activate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Change doesn’t have to occur overnight, and many of the people we help make changes at their own pace. Whether you speed down the road to freedom and better health, or walk it one step at a time, just make sure you’re on the right road.

In our next few articles we’ll take a quick look at some of the most popular diets trending for 2020 and see why they can lead you down the wrong road. See you then!
