A recent poll indicated that 96% of the 3,278 participants do not trust the medical profession right now. People are afraid to go to a hospital or see a doctor for treatment.
The good news, there’s a lot we can do to take personal responsibility for our health.
The very best medicine you can practice is prevention and that starts with what we put in our bodies. We are what we eat.
If we don’t know where to start with improving our relationship with food we should focus on this,
Make protein a priority.
Studies show that protein is the most filling macronutrient you can eat.
This is partly because protein reduces your level of the hunger hormone ghrelin. It also boosts the levels of peptide YY, a hormone that makes you feel full. Get 7-8 hours sleep to support leptin levels for optimum benefits. 💥
These effects on appetite can be powerful. In one study, increasing protein intake from 15% to 30% of calories made overweight women eat 441 fewer calories each day without intentionally restricting anything. (Healthline).
Some protein sources.
The benefits of even a small weight loss:
Lower blood pressure: losing 5lbs can put us in a lower risk category.
Decrease inflammation: losing 6 lbs tampers down the production of pro-inflammatory proteins.
Less muscle and joint pain: Losing 5 lbs of excess weight could mean 20 fewer pounds of pressure on your precious joints.
Lowers anxiety, improves mood: losing 5 lbs can have an impact on mood and lower health anxiety. Knowing that we are making changes toward healthier practices improves our thoughts around our health. Taking action makes us feel happier, even if it’s just the kick-off to our lifestyle changes.
Fearing what could happen while doing nothing toward prevention is a sure way to create problems. We don’t fear seeing a practitioner when we know we are in control of the decisions we make about our health. A practitioner that understands this is a worthy one.
