What is Holistic Diet?

Let’s go back to the meaning of the word Holistic.  It means to look at the whole instead of just the parts.  To me, if I am being Wholistic (looking at my whole being), and then I get to decide what to eat based on what is best for all parts of my being in Body, Mind, and Soul. You can read more on What is a Holistic Health Coach.

I like to give my body the most nutrient-dense foods which are; fruits and veggies.  

No doubt, I have been on, what I would call, an “accelerated path of evolution” with my eating choices since 2013 when I had my son Bodhi.  I have been on a mission to heal my body.  Which I have done in many ways and keep learning how to do more.  Then that morphed into a relationship of deep love where my desire to give my body the best has become more important than all the satisfying unhealthy foods I use to consume and feel like I could not live without.  I am still on this path and have more to learn.

Honestly, the path has not been easy.  I have had to replace a lot of old habits with new ones.  Shifting stubborn thoughts and beliefs is challenging and mind-blowing.  For sure, I remember thinking, 

“ There is no way I can shift this and here is my list of reasons why!”

Yet, as I continued to study, feel, learn, listen, and understand more clearly, I began to see the importance of changing some of my habits like:  

  • Going to be earlier
  • Eating earlier
  • Eating better
  • Eating mindfully, etc. 

And hey, if you are just starting out on making some changes, then I encourage you to have compassion for yourself.  It is a journey.  Unquestionably, there are some strategies that can really help.  

Important things to understand about the journey

  1. Knowledge is motivating –  deeper understanding = excitement to shift
  2. Mindset is key – You can not create a new reality for yourself with the same beliefs
  3. Self-talk is important – What you say in your mind, the body will follow (Listen)
  4. Learning to understand your emotions and utilize them.  Indeed, emotions, food, and habits are all intertwined.  What you feel and think about you, influences the choices you make. 
  5. Habit change is science. There are tools to help you make lasting change in your life. Transformation is possible.  I wonder, how big can you dream? 
  6. Get really in tune with you and LISTEN! – Develop your intuition
