In this episode, I dive into my personal journey of giving up ultra-processed foods for over two and a half years. I address the misconceptions about labeling food as 'junk' and why it's essential to avoid assigning morality to what we eat.
I share how my journey began in 2013 when I transitioned to a vegan lifestyle for health, ethical, and environmental reasons. I eliminated processed foods from my diet. I discuss the factors that helped me succeed, including moving away from discomfort, aligning with my values, and witnessing positive changes like clear skin and weight loss.
I also opened up about how I was influenced and, at times, 'brainwashed' by online health influencers who advocated for a specific lifestyle. This led me to follow their advice without questioning, which eventually impacted my life negatively.
I touch upon how I ultimately stopped my strict dietary regimen due to health concerns, financial factors, and personal circumstances. I provide insights into what helped me stay on track and the importance of paying attention to your body's feedback.
Tune in to learn more about my journey, the lessons I've learned, and why critical thinking is essential in making informed choices about your health and lifestyle.
