Health Tid-bit: Getting Started on a Healthy Lifestyle

After making the commitment to following a more healthy lifestyle, many people are stumped as to how to actually begin putting their ideas into practice. Realizing that if improvement is not seen fairly quickly, people become discouraged and give up, we have put together some ideas as to how to make your transition as smooth, easy and effective as possible. As always, we are readily available for 1:1 consultations. Click here for more information about the types of consultations we offer.

   1. Educate yourself. Unless you know what you are going to be doing, why you will be doing it and what you can expect from doing it, making lifestyle changes can be very frustrating. Begin by reading some books to gather information. We recommend The Hallelujah Diet by George Malkmus and Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Juices by Dr. Norman Walker (along with any of Dr. Walker's other books) as good starting points. Also, The China Study by T. Colin Campbell has some terrific information validated by scientific research. The 80/10/10 Diet by Dr. Douglas Graham is wonderful for learning how the body is designed to nourish and digest! Attend a seminar, a support group, or set up an appointment with someone who can help you understand, answer your questions, or direct you to the right places for information.

   2. Set Goals. Decide what you are hoping to accomplish from what you are going to do. Is it to lose weight, avoid a surgery, get off medication, increase your energy to be able to do something? Try to be as specific as possible. The more clear your goals the easier they will be to monitor for achievement. Be reasonable when putting in time frames - if your goals are unrealistic then you may become discouraged. you may need to start out with a goal like " I will not eat any meat for 2 weeks ". When you have accomplished that goal, extend it and maybe add to it - " I will not eat any cheese or meat for 2 weeks". The most drastic improvement actually seems to occur when grains are eliminated for a couple of weeks. It is amazing the difference you will experience! etc.

   3. Set a Start Date. Give yourself a date that you will begin to make the changes and then stick with it! We can all find reasons to put off doing what we know will be beneficial to us in the long run. Once you have a set date on the calendar - you can begin making necessary arrangements so that you will be ready to make the change. It may mean emptying the refrigerator of the meat, milk, eggs, and cheese, or joining an exercise class so that you can work it into your schedule

   4. Make up menus. Try to put together sample menus for 2 weeks. Remember that keeping raw all day and having just a cooked meal in the evening will cut back on the time spent in the kitchen. In addition, if you have the menus made out in advance, you can shop for the items and have them on hand so you are not so tempted to eat something you shouldn't.

   5. Tell someone. When you tell someone that you are going to be making certain changes, then you are in essence saying "hold me responsible for making this change." Make sure the person (or people) you tell are supportive and encouraging, positive people. You won't want someone to hold you responsible if they are going to be trying to discourage you the whole time.

   6. Just Do It! You've educated yourself, set your goals, have your "materials" on hand, your support system in place, and you are ready! It is time to put your plan into action.

   7. Be prepared for some surprises. It may be a friend who invites you out for dinner. Be ready, you can still eat good food when you go out, but you may have to be assertive in asking for something special. You may begin by feeling really good and all of a sudden - "POW" you are flat on your back (or on your knees) sicker than you ever want to be again. Know that this unexpected happening, should be expected. It is a natural course of the body as it begins getting rid of the toxic garbage in your body to make room for the good stuff.

   8. Have a Detoxification Plan. If you begin detoxifying your body right at the beginning, when you are beginning a lifestyle change, you will be less likely to have to deal with many "detoxification symptoms". This could be using Colon Cleansing/Hydration, Far Infrared Sauna, Detox Foot Spa, Coffee Enemas, Ginger Baths, Charcoal, or other detoxification means. Click here for more information about some of these!

   9. Don't beat yourself up. We all "fall off the wagon" occasionally. Don't be discouraged, just get up the next morning and begin again.

  10. Be Patient. You didn't reach your current health condition overnight, you won't change it overnight either. Give yourself time (see setting goals).

  11. Have fun! This is a lifestyle that you know will help you be healthy, but if it is a chore and not any fun, then the odds are against you sticking with it! The better you plan, the more you share with others your great results, the more positive you can be, the more likely you are to see the kind of results for which you are looking.

  12. Love Yourself. God made you in a unique way and He wants you to be healthy because He loves you. If you are so important and loveable to God, can you truly look at yourself any other way?
