Expanding our thoughts on the four letter word that starts with D

heal nutrition real food Feb 20, 2022

Words are spells that lead to magic, or not. 

If you look at the word DIET - you can see the first 3 letters spell the word DIE. 
A mentality that focuses on a diet can lead to seeing food as the enemy. It causes people to focus on their bad habits (perceived or real). People often choose to go on a diet to fix things they don't like about themselves, including fixing the number on the scale. Diets perpetuate a goal with the end in mind, a temporary 'fix'. 

If you look at the word HEALTH - you can see the first 4 letters spell the word HEAL. 
A mentality that focuses on food as nourishment and fuel. It causes people to focus on good habits and increasing their gains to crowd out their drains. It changes the timeline to a way of life versus a quick fix. It helps us focus on daily choices to help us move towards what we do want for our health and life versus what we don't want. 

Big difference. The choice is yours: "Die" or "Heal"}

What does the word “diet” mean to you? The word actually comes from the Greek word “diaita,” which means “way of life.” 

To live healthy, a diet should be a lifestyle, not a short-term cycle of a strict list of do's and do nots. This doesn’t mean completely banning pizza, chocolate or your favorite food. Instead, it should be about eating a variety of nutrient-dense foods in their most optimal forms. This automatically starts to crowd out the not-so-healthy choices with healthy choices. This reframe will help you come up with a way of eating you can stick with it for the rest of your life.
