This started as a facebook page status update, but apparently it was too long. So it became a blog post! I wasn’t going to post today because I’ve felt wretched, but suddenly around 9 pm I’m starting to feel better. Or maybe that’s just the medicine kicking in? Who knows. All I know is last night was horrible being sick and I don’t want to repeat it very often, which has gotten me thinking deep about the way I eat and take care of my body. Those thoughts led eventually to the following:
I’m trying to figure out what way of eating works best for me and the quest is taking unexpected turns (blog post about that coming soon). I think it’s FASCINATING how many different ways of eating exist and how everyone is completely sure they are eating the only right way. Paleo, raw, vegan, meat eating, vegetarian, no dairy, no fruit, only fruit, moderation, cheat days, high protein, low protein, high fat, gluten free, eating once a day, eating 6 times a day, etc. It’s really, really fascinating. And confusing. The more you search the more confusing it will become because on the internet you will find people in completely different camps saying their way is the best. I’m just looking for what is right for me.
I’m still searching for my “right” way of eating. The kind of eating that makes me feel my best. I feel like I’m getting ever closer to it but I’m just not there yet.
I want to know about you. Have you found the best way of eating for you? What do you think is the best way to eat?
