Your definition of “healthy” is probably all wrong!

NEWSFLASH: “Healthy Food” has a different meaning for EVERYONE!


To one person, “healthy” means
– Low fat
– Low calories
– Wheat bread vs white bread
– low sodium


To another person, “healthy” means
– Chicken vs red meat
– Weight Watchers meals
– lite salad dressing
– diet Coke vs Coke
– protein powder smoothies

Let’s rewind 100 years, 200 years, 300 years…did any of the “healthy” listed foods above even exist? NO
Here’s the scary part…I don’t think ANY of those are healthy! SCARY HUH.

“Why is it so complicated??” “What the hell is healthy??” “Why are there so many different opinions??” “This is stupid! I quit!”

WAIT! I promise you it’s not complicated. I promise it’s super simple and so common sense you’ll get it!

I have 6 rules that make this SUPER simple
Rule #1 – Eat only plants and animals: as close to their natural state as you can (No chemicals & Not processed)
Rule #2 – Avoid processed carbs
Rule #3 – Avoid boxed & canned foods
Rule #4 – Avoid over cooked foods
Rule #5 – Shop at health food stores and farmers markets ONLY!
Rule #6 – 1 -2 cheat meals every week. (ANY ANY anything you want!)

Notice what’s NOT on this list
– Nothing about low fat (Fat is great for you)
– Nothing about calorie counter (all calories are not the same!)
– Nothing about 1 bread being better than another (all too clogging)
– Nothing about sodium (salt is critical for your cell’s health)
– Nothing about 1 animal being more healthy than another (only the drugged up animals are bad to eat)
– Nothing about pre-prepared meals (fresh is best!)
– Nothing about “lite” or “diet” (those involve chemicals)
– Nothing about protein powders (too processed)

    Hey Terry! I’d just like to thank you for sharing your health tips with everyone! (: I’m a girl who eats a pretty normal diet (except for a high chocolate and pasta intake), and I maintain a steady, healthy weight but I’ve felt a bit heavy recently. I have horses, and ride competitively – I train 6/7 days a week usually for an hour, as well as looking after my horses, so I get enough exercise. The problem with my diet is that I drink a lot of sugary drinks. The only things I drink are coke/pepsi, vimto (like robinsons), lucosade etc. I decided I would replace my sugary drink intake with water for a month as soon as my sugar supply ran out, and I took to the internet to find if there was any results from doing this. Here I found your water challenge and your dietary information! Unfortunately, I don’t think I can give up pasta or bread (as I’m trying to be a veggie and I’m a fussy eater, I literally eat vegetables (cooked in water), pasta and cheese sandwiches), but I’m very pumped to try my version of the water challenge now!! I’d be great if you could share some veggie recipes sometime, perhaps?
    Thanks again!
