What diet or eating protocol is right for you? The diet that one can follow with consistency for a long time is the winner. It is divorcing the thought that the word diet equals short term lifestyle changes and going without. It is changing the idea that diet is a lack of something, a void in what foods make us happy. Food makes us happy? Where did that come from? Food is nourishment for the body so that the body can perform efficiently and with ease. Food is fuel so that our bodies can function well. Think about which of the protocols resonate with your body, spirit, heart, and lifestyle. Which one seems DO-able, regardless of the surrounding environment? Then as time goes on, and the brain is accustomed to the new food choices and habits, we can tweak and experiment without fear. Your body knows what to do if you trust it. We humans have some sort of self evaluation going on all of the time. As we become comfortable with our new system of eating, we can evaluate our progress without judgment and then experiment accordingly. How do you feel? How are your blood tests and other health markers improving? Are you responding with strength, renewed energy, agility, better sleep, a sense of well being?
Notice that I didn't say TRY. Trying creates a state of trying again and again. Trying creates a test of some sort, with one foot in the circle and one foot out of the circle. Commitment requires DOING.
We all have heard of "try before you buy." I'm not offering a TRY. I am offering a DO.
One evening a couple of years ago, my husband and I were on a date night. We were parked early for a jazz concert and were sitting and chatting in the car. He held a lip balm in the palm of his right hand. He asked me to try to take the lip balm from the palm of his hand. (I love games!) I reached over to grab it and quick as a flash he closed his fist. We played a few rounds of this game. "Come ooonnnn, do it!" he said vehemently. I kept saying, "I AM trying!" I was frustrated but having fun at the same time. He smiled and looked at me quietly. Ooooh, point well taken. Exactly. Are you trying or are you doing? Trying led me to more trying. Doing may have led me to completing the task. Do you TRY or DO?
These protocols are simple, yet hard. Anything worth doing correctly the very first time takes grit. Anything worth doing correctly the one hundredth times takes grit! It takes a level of stepping out onto uncharted territory. Simple is not the same thing as easy. Complicated is not the same thing as hard.
Hard is climbing Mount Everest, but it is relatively simple. Place one foot in front of the other. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Eventually one will arrive at the top of Mount Everest. Hard is running a marathon. Place one foot in front of the other. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Simple rules to follow, but great effort and commitment entailed. Get my point?
