I wanted to highlight one of my favorite takeaways from Thursday’s webinar. If you didn’t get a chance to watch it yet, make sure you make some time – lots of good stuff in there!
Here’s some wisdom Shelby shared:
“A lot of times we tend to think the solution to losing weight or getting the body we want is a matter of eliminating things. In it’s own backwards sense that is a type of will power, a type of discipline.
A more impressive and efficient discipline to conquer, I would say is balance in diet and willpower to pursue moderation in what you eat.
…I truly think its a willpower of moderation in choices…it’s more being able to find a balanced diet that’s right for you. To not deprive yourself of anything but rather to conquer moderation in what you eat.
If you’re eating these whole foods and superfoods for your body, you will be full, you will be satisfied and you won’t be craving processed foods as much.
What we eat perpetuates what we crave later in the day or week or month or year. That kind of approach is what changes mentalities with diets for the better, in my own experience as well as those of my close professional dancer friends.”
When it comes to food and eating well, this advice is invaluable. So many thank you’s to the delightful Shelby Elsbree for her contributions last week.
