Children with Type II diabetes are raising at an alarming rate, some are calling it an epidemic. I am truly saddened and scared for our current youth due to this disease that is completely avoidable based upon a balanced diet and regular exercise. We all mean to do the best for ourselves and our family’s, but do you feel you have the right tools to impact sustainable change not only for you but them as well?
We all need the tools to help not only ourselves but our families. I have had so many friends and clients say if they aren’t in a healthy space themselves with diet and exercise they notice that their families aren’t either, and how quickly everyone can fall off the nutritional wagon. Let’s be honest as women, we are usually the leaders in our families when it comes to food, we do the grocery shopping and usually are the ones that cook the meals. But what if you feel you weren’t given the tools to understand food labels, food pairing, portion control, moderation of sweets, the list can go on and on. Trust me the food industry with their marketing and branding can confuse anyone on a good day, let alone someone who feels overwhelmed already when it comes to food and nutrition.
One of the biggest steps we all can do is to adjust one negative habit at a time, with a positive habit. For example if your family enjoys eating ice cream frequently make a conscious effort to limit this treat and try an equally enjoyable treat of fresh berries. We are at the beginning of summer when there are so many tasty berries and fruits to choose from. You can make a delicious fruit bowl with mango, blueberries, strawberries, apple. Not only will you be satisfying your sweet tooth, you will be doing it in a much healthier way with natural sugars, tons of fiber not to mention all of the amazing vitamins and minerals (Vitamins A, B, C, E, K, Niacin, calcium, Magnesium, Iron to name a few).
Do you feel like you could make small sustainable positive change over the next month? I know you can and I believe in YOU!!!
Make this a family event, encourage the entire family to talk about their small steps and how as family you are choosing your health and longevity for each other. I would love to hear what small steps you and your family have chosen over the next month. I would be happy to help you with a free consultation appointment where we can discuss strategies and tools to ensure that these SMALL STEPS are SUSTAINABLE POSITIVE CHANGE for YOU and YOUR FAMILY. Again it comes back to having the right tools for success.
