Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be hard, expensive and overwhelming especially for a chronic food binger like me.
Someone asked me the other day why do you need a reason to work out? My current reasons include my engagement party, my holiday in August to the States (I really want to look decent in a bikini in Vegas), along with looking healthy at my best friend’s wedding (bridesmaid pressures only a year away).
The conversation really had me thinking. Why do I need a reason to work out? Why cant I make a healthy lifestyle choice for me and others around me? I came across a website called Supercharged Food which has eating plans, a great blog, and recipes that are free of ‘gluten, wheat, dairy, yeast & sugar’ – how convenient.
Along with following this website, I would love to try a program called Heal Your Gut (HYG).
Supercharged Food is one of my new favorite go-to websites, please take a minute to check it out here, but for now enjoy my interview with Lee.
How long has your website Supercharged Food been active for?
I started Supercharged Food five years ago.
When did the fascination for a healthy lifestyle come about?
It came about six year ago when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition and fibromyalgia. I started to create healthy recipes with ingredients that really helped to improve my condition.
What is a supercharged food?
Supercharged Food is an every day food which has potent nutritional benefits and one that is tasty, easy to find and cook with such as cauliflower, zucchini, garlic, ginger and turmeric. My anti-inflammatory toddy recipe is a perfect example.
What is involved In the HYG program?
The Heal Your Gut Program is a 4 week online program which nurtures and guides the participants to look at the four aspects of gut healing from a personal perspective. It also includes delicious recipes, videos, the latest gut healing information and access to a team of experts in the field of gut health.
Getting into a healthy lifestyle/program can be more easier then actually sticking one out. What tips can you give to stay motivated?
Just take things one step at a time and don’t try and overcommit yourself. Ease into any program gently and gradually and remember to check in with your body and listen to its signals.
You have written a few books, run a successful website and have a young family, how do you balance it all out?
I’m a yoga teacher and I find that doing yoga and meditation helps to balance my work and home life.
