No matter what your view is on food, we can all agree upon the fact that it is a vital part of our lives. We literally have to eat to survive and stay alive or else we will vanish into thin air.
From a young age your mind is set on how you look, how your body should look and how you should be as an overall person. Slowly the ideal set by society is killing the well-being of many of us teenagers. Suddenly we should restrain ourselves from nourishment and engage in over exercising that might actually slowly kill us if we keep on with the regime. You don’t understand what you are doing when you’re in it, you’re just focused on what you want to achieve; a body that may have been achieved through an unhealthy way.
You can get anything you put your mind that’s why this can be so dangerous.
As humans, we are fixated on the aesthetics. You want to look good and fast. You start setting up deadlines of losing 25kg in the course of 3 months when everyone knows it will destroy your metabolic rate with time and you’ll end up with bad fitness levels when you get older. It will catch up with you. You are so fixated on time you don’t realize that it takes time and it should take time if you want to maintain fitness over a longer time.
It is not about the calories you restrict, the apple you ate for breakfast or that you have been able to suppress the need for food within you. It is about feeling good and nourishing your body. Eat the good stuff, move your body and you will feel good. Keep that in mind and you will slowly make your way to a better, healthier life.
