How to feed well your body and mind?
|You are a spiritual being living in a physical body|
The essence of you and I is spiritual. You are a spiritual being living in a physical body, you don't have a soul but you are a living soul. You got to take care of yourself, your physical body do not neglect yourself, the Holy Scriptures says to nourishes and cherishes your body. Why I think it's a good advice? Because your body it's the only place you've got lo live, currently ( if you saw the movie Transcendence with Johnny Depp maybe in the future who knows, but for now... )
Some people don't have great results in their lives because they don't feel well, they are from times to times sick, ( and me also some years not far away ago I was out of shape, out of balance and out of health, my life was mess up and then things got better, I don't have everything perfect now, but I'm still in the path of improving myself and now things are pretty good for me. I'm not here to write to you that I'm the perfect person that figure out everything, I just want to share with you what worked for me and maybe can work for you too like I mention in my previous post I would do it ) so you must have vitality in you so you can do it well, so take good care of yourself.
I know some people who feed their pets better than they feed themselves. They are so careful how they feed their pets, so careful what they eat, so careful so they get everything and because of that extreme care those pets are in great shape, but if you saw these persons I know. Some people take care better their pets than take care themselves or even worst some people feed better their pets than they feed their own kids.
So let's start with physical:
I was an addicted to caffeine, I used to drink 5 to 7 coffees a day with sugar of course, several cokes a day too and not the 0 or the Diet/light ones, I was addicted to champagne always an opportunity pop up "let's go people" and of course when I drank juices were always with gas and a lot of sugars. Now I simply drink water and occasionally natural juices of course without gas. I've always have water around me if I'm at home or practicing physical exercise like doing cycling and playing soccer, etc. Helps you hydrate because you are losing water all the time by transpiration, this is how you stay detox, you get the toxins out of your body, keep your energy level high, your blood pumping in and your brain thinking clearly.
I never ate several times a day, usually a small breakfast in running mode, no fruit at all and probably a chocolate cake. Why I did that? I thought by doing that I would start the day with getting extra energy because of the sugar of the cake or with the chocolate. I was wrong because we don't get more energy but we simple can create more energy with in our core body and the way we create that energy is by the nutrients that we put in our body.
So I'm not a fanatic I don't eat perfect all the time I still drink coke from times to times ( and not the 0 and not the Diet/light ) or sometimes I enjoy going to McDonald's and eat the Big Mac, but for the most the time I eat healthy, I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, usually fruit in the morning before the lunch I eat orange, banana, pear and red apple. For lunch normally more vegetables to avoid the other stuff is not so healthy, after lunch before dinner in the middle of the afternoon cereals with soy milk because I have a lactose condition, for dinner I like very much having a good soup and salad and before go sleep a tea in fall/winter with some crackers and in spring/summer a fresh orange juice with an green apple.
Why I began sharing what I did for changing my body?
That also allowed to me to be the thinker of the thought instead just having thoughts by getting programmed by all outside influences, because I believe we born with free will and like Jean Paul Sartre said: "Man is condemned to be free", I really believe we can choose our thoughts. So I think it's very important think about what we are thinking about, so again I became the thinker of the thought instead just having thoughts programmed by TV, radio, internet, movies, social media, friends and family.
Of course I supplement my diet with some fantastic nutrition products ( by the way I think everybody should ) because the truth is, the food we buy today even if we buy from the bio store or we produce some of our own food we really don't receive all the nutrients we need in our diet that our body needs because of the air pollution, pesticides, hormones and a lot grown up in depleted soil, etc.
There are many things that are happening that threat our food supply that is why I believe we all need supplementation.
What I noticed was doing smaller meals, 4 a 5 per day and start eating the bad stuff early like for example as I mention above sometimes I like eat a Big Mac on McDonald's instead do that at dinner I go do that at lunch time early in the day not before I go to bed and I was able to starting losing weight and all with no stress, no craves and enjoying my new looking.
But of course to go from 91 kg / 201 lb to 67 kg / 148 lb just changing the food I eat wasn't enough, then I began doing a lot a of physical exercises, I join a cycling team with family and friends, start going to a swimming pool with family, running in the woods with family and I started playing soccer in a local club this all combined with above allowed me have some interesting results.

Because you know how appearance is important in our society, you don't never have a second chance to make a first impression. Some people may say: "Well what matters is the inside of the person!"
I agree with that, but don't forget only God can see the inside of the person, we humans only see the outside of the package. Of course with the time when people get to know you better they judge by more than they see but first they gonna take a look. Please make sure your outside is a major reflection of what's going on inside which lead us to the mind subject.
I began nourish my brain reading books, with audio programs that I listen in car or on my iPhone, I started seeing videos on my Mac, this allowed me put in thoughts of positivity and good expectations in my mind.
I also made a freedom manifestation map, I filled in it with pictures and images of things I want to do, have and become and I put it in a place I can easily see it everyday this way I also feed my mind remembering me daily the direction I want my life goes.
If you found this post helpful, you know if you share this post with 5 of your facebook friends and ask them to each share this post with 5 of theirs facebook friends it would be 25 and if they duplicate that 125, and they duplicate that 625, and they duplicate that 3125, then 15625, and they duplicate that again 78125 and pretty soon the all world would be feeding well their body and mind. ;-) But I'm leaving that up to you!
JM with friendship.
