Recognizing the needs of the mind and body allows one to make a more informed decision on their overall health. There are several causes to make one think that a major change in dieting may be a necessary choice. Here are my top three picks that signify the need for a change:
Loss of Energy– Has you energy levels decreased significantly over a brief period of time, or do they lag in and out on an irregular basis? Try assessing your daily intakes of caffeine, sugar, carbohydrates. Be sure to take into consideration when you are consuming most of these diet or daily disasters. The human body is designed to let its holder know when the need for a change is necessary. Don’t ignore the signs until a medical emergency prompts the changes.
Fatigue– After ruling out any medical concerns, an assessment of your daily activities and adequate consumption of daily needs to be completed. This is solely a personal assessment. Are you often tired, sluggish or incoherent; do you find yourself skipping multiple meals or using grab and go as a method of meal replacement? You can be wearing your own body down by not eating a balanced and nutritious diet. Try utilizing a diet rich in greens and lean proteins. Do not starve you mind and body of wholesome foods. Improve your mental clarity with proper nutrition.
Scales Changes – In one direction or another, rapid weight changes causes one to find the root cause prompting these changes. In the case of weight gain, work with your medical provider to determine your actual BMI and the guidelines for your height and weight. Incorporate a diet with less fried and processed food and more rich colorful vegetables. A good idea to keep in mind that too much of any one thing can override the best of everything else. On the opposite end of the spectrum, being too far on the other end of the scale could signal that no matter what you are eating, it is not enough. Try aiming for a happy medium of six small meals a day to encourage consistent and planned times to sit and eat.
There are litanies of reasons that warrant the need to revamp your dietary needs. Enacting and following through on diet changes can be one of the most difficult activities that some can face. Try to remain consistent and committed to your individual needs.
Always seek the advice of a qualified medical professional before incorporating any dietary changes.
