Change it up!

So, have you reached a plateau? Are you feeling sluggish, feeling bloated in certain areas of your body, aren't sleeping well, or experience joint pain? These are just a few symptoms of what happens when your own beautiful body has a negative reaction to the fuel that you are filling it with, even your favorite healthy foods!

Too much of anything is not good, we have all heard that statement. I was surprised to find out how true that statement is and that it even applies to my healthy diet. Putting the same foods and supplements in your body day after day, month after month, and year after year can cause your body to start rejecting them. It becomes more of an problem faster when the foods that we are putting into our bodies are in concentrated forms, such as powders like shakes and supplements.

Inflammation is defined as: a localized physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful, especially as a reaction to injury or infection. This happens inside our bodies as well as on the surface. Even the most innocent and seemingly healthy foods such as olive oil or spinach can be the reason for inflammation inside of our bodies. The best way to find out which foods are causing inflammation in your unique body is to have a blood test and have a lab check for food sensitivities. I did, and was very surprised to see such foods as olive oil, spinach, sesame, peaches and blueberries on the list of my food sensitivities. After doing research on the daily supplements and shakes that I have been consuming daily for years now, I found that most of those foods that I am now sensitive to are on the ingredient list of my supplements and diet. Those concentrated berries, for example, are made into a powder and are consumed daily. My theory is that this can cause many problems for my body's performance over time, and how I feel.

Once I found which foods to avoid, I began a new habit of adding a bigger variety into my diet. I am trying new fruits, new vegetables and new supplements. I have learned that too much of anything really, truly is not good for me. Variety is the spice of life, and I plan on living a long spicy life without pain or illness.
