Healthy Eating Affirmations

I remember when I first began to listen to affirmations on cassette tapes. (Old School).

I use to argue with the voice coming out of the recorder. I did not believe it was true that

people listen to me and I am an interesting person. Eventually, as I continued to listen, I began to be

convinced to test out these messages.  So I started to allow the positive messages to sink into my psyche and

stop arguing.

I noticed that people did listen to me and that the more I felt interesting, people were responding to me.

Now I realize that affirmations are statements that affirm what it is I want to show up. It is not a mere statement of fact. I have had coaching clients of mine to tell me that affirmations are lies.  Because of my experience with misunderstanding affirmations, I knew where they were coming from.

 

That said, I am sharing affirmations for Eating Healthy!

 

Print these out and Post it on the refrigerator or mirror so you can see the affirmations several times a day.

Repetition is the key! Don’t expect to believe each statement right away. Continue to repeat them until you notice the shift inside of you.

Creating a Healthier Next Generation and Supporting a Healthier School Day

Creating a Healthier Next Generation and Supporting a Healthier School Day

Thanks to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, students across America are being served meals with more fruits, vegetables, whole-grains, lean protein and low-fat dairy. Parents can send their kids to school knowing that the healthy habits they teach at home are being reinforced at school, with breakfast and lunch menus that provide more of the foods we should eat, and less of the foods that we should avoid.

Parents, teachers, school nutrition professionals, communities, and policy makers are working hard to make sure that school environments support a healthier next generation.

And these efforts are working. Kids are consuming more healthy food, and school breakfast participation is increasing leading to better test scores and increased attendance. As we move forward with the implementation of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, it’s clear that the school day is becoming healthier.

Breaking News ! One Multinational Grocery Retailer Just Made a Moral Decision

One Multinational Grocery Retailer Just Made a Moral Decision to Put Health Before Profits

Something revolutionary happened last week and you probably didn’t hear about it. Tesco, a multinational grocery retailer — the second largest in the world — made a moral decision to protect its customers that guaranteed it would lose money. A supermarket behemoth with over six thousand stores, Tesco made an across the board business decision to move all the candy from its checkout counters. Wow.

“We all know how easy it is to be tempted by sugary snacks at the checkout, and we want to help our customers lead healthier lives,”

said chief exec Philip Clarke.

“We’re doing this now because our customers have told us that removing sweets and chocolates from checkouts will help them make healthier choices.”

While consumers have been lulled into something of a food fog, junk food and beverage companies have a very clear agenda. They’re on a decades long mission to fill your every site line with addictive, sugary products because their market research shows that just seeing these items will trigger a response in your brain that will result in a impulse purchase.

As Dr. David Kessler describes in the new film FED UP, these items “literally hijack your brain.” More poignantly, twelve year-old Wesley from FED UP tells us, “you see it, you want it.”

The candy and junk food lining the register is making us sick, it’s undermining the health of the entire country. Its rendering young adults unfit for military service, it’s clogging our hospitals, it’s infecting children with serious adult diseases.

Which brings us back to companies like Tesco and Canada’s Indigo Books – both of which are changing their business models to protect the health of their customers. Heather Reisman, the owner of Indigo Books served as an executive producer on FED UP and after watching several cuts, she made an executive decision to remove all the confections from the cash registers of her 300 bookstores.

Tesco and Indigo acknowledge a responsibility to their customer that goes beyond the one transaction.

CVS, America’s largest drugstore chain seemed to be thinking along these lines too when it announced it would stop selling cigarettes citing its commitment to public health.

That plan was rightfully praised, but a stroll through any CVS will reveal the much larger health threat is the massive amount of candy, chips and soda prominently displayed down every aisle of its drugstores.

Not all calories are created equal and the calories at the cash register are some of the worst. Dr. David S. Ludwig, Professor of Pediatrics at the Harvard Medical School and a Professor of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health published a report just two weeks ago in the peer respected journal, JAMA, making the strongest scientific argument yet for why all calories are not equal, which is the foundational argument of FED UP.

Arguing that all calories are the same has become a mantra for food and beverage companies. Coke spent millions last year on TV commercials selling the idea: “A calorie is a calorie, so make some of yours a coke!” That was their heartfelt contribution to helping solve America’s obesity epidemic.

As Tesco and Indigo Books lead the way, it’s a bold challenge to all the CEOs of retail businesses everywhere that carry candy, chips and other junk at their cash register, to consider your responsibility to the customer, to children, and weigh your conscious against your quarterly profits. Don’t be the last company to do the right thing. The world needs leadership in the fight against obesity, and your leadership can save lives.
