Tips and Advice on How to Start Your New Gluten-Free Diet and Move Into a More Healthy Lifestyle to Live Better with Auto Immune Disease
A healthy lifestyle journey requires consistency, discipline, and patience. As someone with an auto-immune disease knows, having a healthy lifestyle is necessary if you want to feel good daily. Starting with diet, then exercise, and other healthy habits such as meditation, taking time for yourself to relax, and going on vacation, you can find your own personal health lifestyle groove.
If you don't have an auto-immune disease, you can start at any of these places. However, many people want to start with dieting or exercise when starting a healthy lifestyle journey. Others may want to start drinking more water. Whatever your starting point is, you need to make sure that you approach your lifestyle modification with the right mindset!
Start with Your Healthy Lifestyle Goal in Mind
While you may have a big goal of weight loss, having more daily energy, or being more flexible, you'll want to take your big goal and break it down by setting small goals. Next, take these small goals and create manageable first steps that you can achieve every day. By taking small steps to achieve your overall health goals, you can accomplish a holistically healthy lifestyle and reap the benefits of your new habits!
Insist on Your Choice of Restaurant
Do you really need to be selfish when it comes to eating out? YES, mainly if you have limited choices because of your dietary restrictions. Feeling bad because you think others are loosing out? Drop that feeling of guilt because that other person wouldn't feel the same about the situation if they were in your shoes.
People who aren't GF don't understand what we go through, they think it's silly or our digestive discomfort isn't that bad, and we should just put up with it. Seriously? When is the last time anyone enjoyed having pain and stomach cramps for three days because they ate a doughnut? Maybe some twisted masochist, but for the rest of the living comfortably crowd, we would instead feel good and eat good food, just like everyone else.
Take that gluten-free app, your restaurant guide, or your friend's advice and insist you eat at the restaurant which you CAN eat. The person that says "Well, hey, they have salads!", tell them the last time you checked you were not a manatee.
Be your gluten-free selfie-and own your GF status! Be bold, fearless and insist on your choice of eating establishment because, after all, your tastebuds need to be satisfied just like everyone else!
