So earlier this week I posted about four unexpected results of a new healthy lifestyle that don’t involve the scale.
And today I have three more to share that are physical rewards.
I have struggled with acne since I was 13. So ten years now (wink) and it’s uber annoying. I’ve tried prescription meds, creams, exfoliators, you name it. Some of it has worked for a time, but never long term. But when I started eating better, my skin decided to get on board too. At first, it purged. As in, total breakout. But then, beautiful, pink, skin. Yay! Drinking lots of water helps the purge to go faster too.
Strong Hair and Nails
I’m a nail biter by nature (mam, I’m revealing all my vices here). But part of the reason excuse for biting my nails is how weak and brittle they are. When I started fueling my body with healthy foods, my nails got stronger…and longer. Woot!
Smoother Potty Sessions
Sorry. But yeah, I’ve also dealt with my fair share of stomach (read: colon) issues. I’ve never really been regular. Until….yes, until, I started eating better. Healthy fats likes avocados and olive oil. Coconut oil and mango. Lean meats and lots of veggies. It’s like my body said, “Yes, this is what we needed to regulate and move food through.” No more tums, antacids, antidiarrheal meds…you name it.
So there ya have it. What more do you need to be convinced that a healthy diet will change you? Literally, from the inside out.
