For many people, when they notice that their pants are tighter, their initial response – “to go on a diet or more cardio sessions”. They tend to forget that when they are restricting calories, they may also inadvertently restrict the essential nutrients that aids in the proper functioning of our body systems. A restrictive dieting approach forms stress to the body.
Instead, stop dieting and start nourishing. In making food choices, always ask yourself – “Will this nourish me?” When you focus on nourishment, you will tend to choose more nutrient-dense whole foods, and reduce your intake on processed, low-nutrient food.
