What should I eat?

Probably one of the most personal issues in our lives is deciding what to eat on a regular basis. There is so much conflicting information and confusing advice out there. Many health experts are touting their recommendations for healthy living and out of that can come judgment and guilt. I have many friends how are dealing with weight issues and health issues, and while I believe in my heart that one’s diet is a primary factor, I also realize that our personal history, beliefs and addictions (both conscious and unconscious) all play a very important factor.

IMHO, there are too many “should” and “shouldn’ts”, which at its worst form turns into dogma. When our food choices become fanatical, I feel that we have lost our way a bit.
Every person has a unique physiological and metabolic system. We all have our own person journey of health and wellness, or lack thereof. We have our stories and beliefs, and all of our past choices are mostly the best we could do given the things we believed at that time.

So when it comes time for me to advise people, I choose to honor the journey that they have been on, and realize that what works for me will not work for everyone, and the highest outcome for each person depends on meeting that person where they are and where they choose to be.

Peace.

  1. I love your words and message, Chris!!! I like how you pointed out the “evolution” of our choices. This is going to look different for each person, no two people are on the same path or have the same exact purpose in life. Sharing with honesty and humbleness what is working or not working for us individually with others is important but ultimately we must all fly free and make our own choices, mistakes, and successes. Thanks for the video!!
