‘You are what you eat.’ It’s an old statement that still rings true today. Have you ever noticed a feeling of sluggishness after an enormous meal?

I believe it is fair to say that we in the Western World have an unhealthy relationship with our food. According to recent surveys, more than one in four adults is on a diet at any given moment within the UK alone. Obesity is a constantly rising threat to our wellbeing, and the rise of eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia has increased significantly in recent years. It’s time to take control of our diet!
There are vast amount of guidelines out there today concerning what we should and shouldn’t eat. Nutritionists seem to disagree on a multitude of points, and something that’s dubbed as healthy one day is diagnosed as unhealthy the day after. Fortunately there is one key that can seriously help you to improve the way you eat from today onwards.
That key is the word moderation.
Moderation can take time to learn, but once mastered you will have a better control of your portions, your desire to gorge on tasty treats and an understanding of what you really need to eat to survive healthily and happily.
If you want to learn more about incorporating moderation into your diet, or if you are simply after a greater insight as to what really constitutes a healthy and happy diet, my eBook contains more information on the subject.
