Self-love starts in the gut & impacts your confidence

Self-love starts in the gut & impacts your confidence 

 

We have all heard the saying ‘Trust your gut, it knows what your head doesn’t know yet’, but have you heard the saying ‘From the gut comes the strut’? How can we expect to feel confident if our bodies are feeling sluggish, tired, bloated or uncomfortable in our clothes? I learnt this lesson 2 and half years ago, self-love starts with what we put in our mouths and how we treat our bodies.

Some of you might know nutrition is a huge interest of mine. I truly believe that when you feel good on the inside it radiates on the outside and your positive energy impacts those around you. I am also a big believer that when you feel good on the inside it is almost impossible to lack self worth and confidence.

 

Nutrition is individual and I am not here to preach one lifestyle over another, what works for me might not work for you and vise versa.  I am dropping by today to remind you is that fuelling your physical body with the best nutrition is a form of self love. The greatest form of self-love you can show yourself if you ask me.

 

A while a go I decided to go vegetarian because I noticed a significant change in how my body felt not eating meat. I still eat fish occasionally and that’s when my body tells me that’s what it needs. Over 2 years ago I decided to try and have since become a lover of nutritional cleansing, again not for everyone but it is definitely for me. This week I have decided to step it up again and go zero gluten. This is something I have tried a few times but I haven’t been able to stick to until now. I recommend watching the ‘What’s with Wheat’ documentary (PS. link is below) before you make any decisions.

 

Confidence doesn’t only come from my body feeling physically good, it comes from my ability to prove to my mind that I can commit to a change that will impact my health, confidence and success in the long term. I am curious, how are you feeling in your body today? Are you feeling radiating positive vibes from the inside out? Or are you feeling tired, sluggish and lacking inner confidence?

 

I could harp on all day about what I have learnt about nutrition, but I am not a nutritionist and I don’t believe there is a one diet that fits all. I can however suggest you start to notice how you are feeling, decide how you would rather feel and get informed about the food choices you are making.
