Results are achieved in the gym, but revealed in the kitchen. There is no fitness goal that can ultimately be achieved without first altering your diet. Well, most like to look at it as more of a lifestyle change. This change can be very difficult, if you are used to eating processed foods daily. But, the good news is, is that it is not impossible to do. Slowly start substituting some healthier options into your diet, and stay consistent. Remember, the grass is greener on the other side! To help you get started, check out “The Healthy Foodie” Website (here) or Tumblr page (here).
The Healthy Foodie was created by Sonia, a 39 year old French Canadian from Québec (Canada), single mother of 2 [fully grown] kids, who’s recently turned her life around and decided to embrace a healthy lifestyle and clean-up her diet quite a bit.
Her whole life she has struggled with her weight, and was a fallen victim to the diet syndrome. She would starve herself and / or eat “rabbit” food for months. Sure, she would lose the weight, but it would only be a matter of time before she gained it all back, because she never knew how to feed her body properly and stay healthy.
Then, about 2 years ago, as a new year’s resolution, she decided that she wanted to shed some[ahem 50-60] pounds and get back into shape. She had quit some unhealthy habits, and even started running, and set a goal to run 10km at the Marathon de Montréal in September of 2010. Eventually came to realize that eating clean, healthy food didn’t have to be complicated or boring and didn’t mean that she had to sacrifice taste either.
On her blog and website, she has recipes, must try lists, pictures, and more! There are an abundance of yummy recipes, which include chocolate, gluten free, and even paleo friendly dishes! I recommend you check it out!!!
