Saying goodbye to a good thing isn't an easy decision to make, and yes sometimes in life we need to say goodbye to things that we like, or that make us happy, bring us joy, make a feel good?!?! This is usually due to the fact that saying goodbye to those things will be better for us in the long run, physically, emotionally and sometimes even spiritually. I have met with a lot of clients that are afraid that my suggestions will alter their lives too much, things won't be fun anymore, that all their fun little vices will be taken away. This is not my intention nor is it necessary in creating a happy healthy lifestyle. It is in the information provided, so that you can understand your body, mind and spirit in oder the make educated decisions on what will work best for you.
I don't like to use the word moderation because sometimes you may need to say goodbye to some things, cut them out completely, in oder to improve your lifestyle. These decisions are positive changes in order to help you achieve health and longevity, again, both physically and emotionally. Spending the weekend with my dear friend who suffers with autoimmune deficiencies, talking to her about changes she needs to make in oder to feel better, helping her understand that feeling better is the most important thing, especially at this point in her life. She agreed to making these changes, saying goodbye to foods that she loves, saying goodbye to some old habits and creating new ones. While still allowing her some fun options, and the ability to create her new design and direction, and being in control of the choices she makes.
Sometimes it is a short goodbye, a two week trial to see if these changes make a difference? If not then by all means bring it back, try something new. Goodbye doesn't have to be forever, just being open to the options you are given and seeing for yourself if these changes will improve your health and well being. The focus is being the best you can be, understanding yourself and your body, but most important being happy and enjoying the process.
