Your health and life aren’t determined by what you know, but rather by what you actually do. Knowledge is great but it’s the actions you take that matter more. No area is this more apparent than in what we eat.
We know most of our food should come from good, whole, nutritious sources. Things like fruits, veggies, and whole grains.
We also know that we should avoid processed meats and foods. Things like pecan wheels, Oreos, and deli meat.
But we don’t. At least not on a large scale.
And many of the illnesses and health issues we face are a direct result.
“For the first time in history,” Michael Pollan said, “man has created a diet that makes him sick.”
We know the right things to do, but fail to act. Why?
The answer: Discipline.
We lack the discipline to make good food choices.
We lack the strength of will to say, “No,” to the sugary lies the entice us to pick up the donut instead of the apple or hand full of almonds.
Health, happiness, and fulfillment are often by products on the road to discipline. Take that path. You’ll be glad you did.
