Hello everyone! Welcome to the fifth day of 7 Days of Salina! Today’s topic is probably a little different from the rest because this one involves physical health, and not mental health like the other topics. I’m not here to talk about what to eat and whatsoever. I don’t know much about it but I do know the feeling of eating healthy.
I’ve never been the type of person who eats really healthy or has a strict diet. I eat whatever I want. However, since a young age, my parents have fed me mostly healthy food. I was barely allowed to have junk which sucked because I always use to see other children with chocolates and candies and then there was me on the other hand with veggies! I did not like my mom for it but now, I’m so glad. The reason being, I am now so use to eating healthy that it doesn’t bother me. Eating healthy has been mistaken with losing weight. It’s not what it means. It’s about feeling good about yourself, having more energy, and having a better health. This itself makes such a huge difference in your life.
There was a point in my life, not too long ago, when I started to eat a lot of food which was not good for me. I mostly had takeaways and overall, just a lot of junk. Little did I know how bad it was. A couple of months later, I had discovered that I had PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) which, long story short, affected my hormones and progesterone very badly. That’s when I realized what I had done to myself. In the beginning when I found out, I still ate junk because I was sad and I just didn’t want to process it but a couple of months later, I decided to cut all the junk out of my diet and start exercising or at least go for jogs. Around 5 months later, my results were very good to the point where I was allowed to eat at restaurants with my family without worrying too much about what I was eating. Of course not that much, but once a week and in a specific quantity. Till this day, I’m doing a pretty decent job at it. I still go for jogs every afternoon. And I am happier than I was before.
I don’t want to write a whole paragraph telling you what you should eat and should not. I just want you to try and eat healthier than you are eating right now. It sucks to be dealing with a problem similar to mine so before that happens (and hopefully it doesn’t happen at all), eat healthy!
