So I just checked out what the word diet is defined as. Before I tell you, take a second and think about what the word “diet” means to you.
Diet: “The kinds of food that a person, animal, or community habitually eats.”
Is this what came to mind? My assumption is that you were thinking of diet in terms of “going on a diet”; following strict rules of what you are and are not allowed to eat with a certain goal in mind. Isn’t that interesting? A diet is what you HABITUALLY eat. The way that we currently use the word “diet” is almost inaccurate.
Let me get you thinking about something else… have you ever heard of “bad gas” in terms of putting it into a car? This happened to my sister a few months ago. She gave us a call saying that “my car is making a chug chug noise, I can’t accelerate properly and I just filled up the car with gas.” Our guess was that she got “bad gas”. Are you seeing the picture I’m trying to paint for you? My sister accidentally put “bad gas” into her car and it wasn’t running properly. Her car was not designed to run off this formula of gas. Have you ever thought about what you are putting into your car (body)? Why you may feel sluggish and not “accelerating” properly? I have been paying A LOT of attention to what I have been eating lately and minus some sort of food allergy/intolerance that I have, I have been feeling really great! Our bodies were not “designed” for all of the middle aisles of the grocery store. Stick to the outer aisles (fruits, vegetables, dairy, meat) and I can almost guarantee you that you will be feeling better!
Okay, this information is all fine and dandy. But how will I implement this into my life?! I have created a new page on my website where I will be sharing with you exactly how I have started to help myself. Check it out: feeding yourself with ADHD.
When you give your body the proper fuel that it needs, you too can run at your full potential!!
p.s. I am so immature.. every time I would type “bad gas” I would laugh because I would flash back to the time my mom was explaining to my grandma that “[insert my sister’s name here] has bad gas”
