There is nothing I love more than an inspirational quote that speaks a truth and resonates deeply.
For those of you who follow my Instagram @jshealth, you may have noticed that each Monday I have begun posting #jshealthquotes.
I believe in starting off each week with a positive thought or a healthy affirmation, to help inspire a healthy and happy week to come. With this in mind, I have decided to share with you all real and healthy truths I have discovered over many years, through studying nutrition and through my own personal journey with food and health.
I truly hope these #jshealthquotes help to inspire your journey, and perhaps make your Mondays just a little bit brighter….
“I view food as nourishment, not the enemy”
I struggled with body image most of my teenage years and early 20s. Like many girls, I tortured myself to the point where food was the enemy, and my body a burden. My relationship with my body was turbulent….I was a carb restricting, fad-dieting, scale-fearing and self-loathing mess! Then something clicked, I realised hating on my body was affecting everything in my life, so I committed myself to understanding what nutrition was all about. When I began to learn how the body actually works, my mentality shifted.
When you feed your body with goodness and love, it is so, so good to you in return.
It’s the most empowering, amazing feeling.
I want you to feel the same.
