I have seen lots of diets and trends coming and going over the past years. I have seen many people struggling with their health, weight and body image, including myself. Sometimes all these things are connected, and this happened to me as well. Sports was always a big part of my life. When I was younger, it was my passion, and later it became my profession.
Unfortunately, I also had many sports injuries and problems with my health. In my twenties, I was gaining plus 10 kilos, and I felt very uncomfortable in my body. I had problems with my health and body and let's just say, my lifestyle with partying and traveling didn't help either. Even though during this period I also stayed very sporty and active, I felt extremely swollen and uncomfortable in my body. I soon realized how important balanced nutrition is.
When I was younger, the food was just the energy source to do sports, later it became my enemy, but over the years, my focus entirely changed. As self-employed my focus was to be and stay healthy and fit, so I started to change my nutrition and get to know my body better. Health became more important than being superficial. I finally understood this is all coming by how I feel inside and a big part of that is my nutrition.
If I eat healthily, I just feel better. It is all about balance. Not only nutrition but also sleeping, resting, doing my sports, being flexible, being kind to myself, being happy, finding the middle way and peace with myself.
Let's take care of ourselves!
