I was chatting to a THIN girl the other day and she said "Well I don't need the Shakeology- I'm already thin." She gave me her daily routine and her diet consisted mostly of coffee, grilled chicken, diet pills and shots.
How many of us equate being THIN with being healthy? The truth is, a thin person can be just as nutrient deficient and sick on the inside, as an overweight person, sometimes even WORSE.
YEP- I GET IT!! I'm not judging because I WAS that "physically thin" but unhealthy person.
- I did HCG shots and secretly ate diet pills instead of meals. - I've made coffee and diuretics my #1 way to "lean out". - I've had friends fear to quit smoking because they will "get fat". - I know guys at the gym that do "natural" steroids. - I have a client that starves herself or throws up a few days before the weekend then on Monday, devours nothing but junk food until Thursday.
Admittedly, when I was younger I didn't think about the long term effects of my ways. But trust me when I say it DOES catch up to you on the INSIDE. Your body will speak to you, eventually. My wish now is that more people understand that BEING THIN IS NOT ASSUMED BEING HEALTHY.
Nutrient deficiency will have you feeling tired, getting sick, increase your cravings and have you feeling irritable. You won't poop, so you take more pills. TRUST natures process and do it right.
- Being healthy is about FUELING our body, not manipulating it with stimulants, pills and chemicals. - Being healthy is about fueling our body towards HEALTH and not fueling it towards DISEASE. I totally GET that we all want faster results, but realize the cost may be more than you are willing to pay in the long term.
Hey gorgeous- LOVE yourself and your body. BELIEVE that we CAN have the body we want if we FUEL it right and exercise. ACCEPT that our body may never be "perfect". And we do not HAVE to be. Being sick and unhealthy in the long run isn't "Sexy" either. :-/
WHAT IF OUR SCALE COULD PUT A NUMBER ON OUR INTERNAL HEALTH?
I want to be very clear in our efforts to promote Shakeology. Its not for weight loss- its for NUTRITION. Shakeology is not a gimmicky weight loss shake with magic ingredients. Nor is it a protein shake. Our white bag is dried whole food DENSE nutrition to fuel your body with the nutrients it NEEDS every single day. It's our whole food meal replacement and vitamin. It's our pro-biotics. There is nothing artificial. It's daily NUTRITION that's made SUPER SIMPLE for us.
I'd love to see our culture mindset shift to know that it's not just about being skinny, its about FUELING our body with NUTRIENTS so we have ENERGY, feel ALIVE, so our body REPAIRS itself and we crave NOTHING.
<3Decide today to LOVE yourself enough to fuel your beautiful self with FUEL, not CHEMICALS <3
Nothing but Love- Seay Stanford
