Eating to be lean VS eating to be healthy

Eating to be ‘lean’ versus eating to be ‘healthy’. Is there a difference?

My opinion;

I think, if you eat to be healthy as opposed to eating with ‘being thin’ in mind, you will most likely be leaner.. In saying that, if you want to be leaner than your body likes to be, or underweight then you may need to adopt a stricter eating approach, which would leave you ‘not so healthy’.  But this often doesn’t last too long, as you are going against the grain of your being, so you will most likely see your weight yo-yo or start to suffer the effects of malnourishment.

Eating to be healthy on the other hand, gives eating a whole new meaning. You are now eating to nourish your body and your soul and coming from a place of love and self-respect. This is when you will really start to lean up in the right places, have a positive attitude with food and your body and also maintain a stable, lean weight.

Shift your focus and start eating to be healthy. Start eating ‘REAL’ food that is bursting with vitamins and minerals and start eating the foods that your body is asking for and really desires, as your body knows best.

bet some of you reading this post are disappointed that I’m not giving you some super strict diet that will get you lean over night. But I know first- hand that the only way you are really going to get into shape for life, is by learning to love your body and giving it the fuel that serves it best.

That is all for today,

Love Hayley x
