Paleo Diet, Keto Diet, Vegetarian, Vegan, etc. There are many diets out there right now claiming to be the best and the most efficient. Truthfully, no one diet is the best diet when it comes to weight loss. Finding the right diet can take time and I hope to reduce that effort for you. Over my years of training I have tried multiple kinds of diets ranging from the infamous Intermittent Fasting to a strict Pescatarian diet and below is what I have learned as a result of multiple trials and errors.
Humans were not created to only wake up and lay in bed. You are here for a purpose. Whether you want to admit it or not, at one point in time, you had a goal, a peak, that you desired so badly that no matter how insurmountable it seemed you kept telling yourself that you would achieve it! Well…what happened? What kept you from staying on offense? How do you know you are straying? How do you fix it?
Everyone knows that water is important and it’d be reasonable to say that everyone has grown up learning that if you want to continue to live and live a healthy life, you need to drink water. Considering our body is made up of 45%-75% water, there is no question in mind that it is essential to us living. However, questions frequently begin to arise… “How much water do I need to drink?”, “What’s the proper amount of water per day?”, “How long can I go without water?”. While all these are important questions (which will be answered throughout the article) the question no one is asking is “just how important is it?”
We always put trust in our doctors and we expect them to be able to handle and fix any illness that comes our way. That leads to me to ask, do you trust God as much as you trust your doctor? I want to discuss with you, for a moment, trusting in God for whatever comes your way in life. Lots of times parents worry, “Oh I hope my baby is gonna get into the best college” or for the younger people “I really hope I get this job!” I’m here to tell you of a very simple phrase you just have to believe in when times get tough: “GOD’S GOT THIS.”
In December of 2008, I had surgery to investigate and remove a thyroid nodule. The diagnosis came back as Papillary Thyroid Cancer with metastasis to the delphian lymph nodes. That was hard news. Christmas was just a couple of weeks away. Ten years prior (1998), my father was diagnosed with oat cell lung cancer at Christmas. Ten years prior to his diagnosis (1988), my mother was diagnosed with stage 4-colon cancer at Christmas. As you can guess, this was not a family trend that I wanted to see continue and, if God is good, what in the world was going on?
Do you ever wonder who to turn to? Who can help you in your time of need or despair? Do you ever wish you had someone special to share your joy with? In the words of God, you will find the help you seek, and you will find a Father that loves you more than you could ever imagine.
