Even as a child I almost always went for the more healthier food options. Although some times I didn't. But I never, ever considered myself on a diet. Until I succumbed to the stereotype label of being on a diet recently...

I gave in to all the questions "are you on a diet?". And I said "yes I am." I now would like to clarify that.... "NO I AM NOT ON A DIET!" I just choose to eat REAL food that is healthy and good for my body. I have seen what unnatural processed food can do to my body and I am not letting myself get like that again. Processed junk not only helps you to gain weight, but also makes you feel like crap and lowers your energy levels. I learned a lot about that when I was training for my tri last year. Try eating at McDonalds and then the next day run a few miles. Let me tell ya, you will be like a slug!

For me and I know a lot of others out there as well, eating healthy is just our way of life, it's our lifestyle. With people asking me if I was on a diet really made me realize that our society has got to change!!! I know it won't change over night, but I truly hope I can help make a difference in people's lives.

Let me also say that, I am not perfect either. I do eat pizza and sometimes McDonalds. And yes I do have a sweet tooth, but that's where my Shakeology comes in!

So I Challenge you to swap out one of your "unnatural snacks" for a more healthier option like nuts, fruits, or veggies!!! Choose to live a healthy lifestyle!!

*I am no expert or claim to be. I am just stating my own experiences.

I agree, people should stop questioning healthy eating habits + praise others for doing it. Good luck in your lifestyle!
