HEALTH IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT

It's amazing what we put into our bodies everyday. My health and diet never mattered much to me until I began to gain a few more pounds than I welcomed. I mean when you have been slim all of your life, you tend to take advantage of not having to watch what you eat. Presently, I am trying to be conscious of what I am putting into my body and to stay in shape.

I want to challenge you all to compile a list of all the foods and drinks that you consume daily. I then want you to write down the health benefits and the health risks for each particular item. Additionally, I want you to walk into your kitchen and check the labels of everything in the refrigerator and cabinets to see what items contain trans fat. Unfortunately, even if the label says zero trans fat, it is possible that it may still contain trans fat. However, I want to focus on removing items that clearly state that there is trans fat in the product. I just checked my refrigerator and cabinets not too long ago and the only item that I consume occasionally that contained trans fat was of course the popcorn. There may be some other items that contain trans fat somewhere but I barely consume those products.

Okay, so now that we have completed that task. I have another challenge :-). Let's try cutting out fried foods, bread, pasta, rice, and desserts out of our diets for a week. So, I'm curious to see what everyone else is putting into their bodies as well. First, I want you all to comment on this post with what you find in your kitchen that contains trans fat. Secondly, if you want you can share the list of foods that you consume daily. Last, but not least I want to know what you ate during the week that you cut out fried foods, pasta, rice, bread, and desserts. I'm sure you will feel better and you will probably lose a few pounds. So, my challenge will start on Sunday November 10, 2013. I have did this before but I'm excited for everyone who will be doing this for the first time :-). We have to take better care of our temples my friends.

  1. So after a week of no bread, pasta, rice, fried foods, and desserts I had some Persian food which included basmati rice, chicken, beef, and pita bread Sunday 11/17/13. My body was so use to the change throughout the week that it did not like what I feed it after a week. Honestly, I'm not even really craving the junk food anymore. I'll have an occasional cheat day but I enjoy eating healthy.
