07 Mar 31 Days of Healthy Eating: Day 7 Tip from Leah McGrath
Day 7 tip comes from a fabulous supermarket dietitian, Leah McGrath, who I recently had the chance to sit down with over some cheese and wine. Needless to say, I was impressed with her passion for nutrition and healthy eating. Enjoy her words of nutrition wisdom!
It’s Not About the Numbers
Realize that good health is more than a number on a scale, an amount of calories, or a clothing size and also encompasses your physical activity and happiness. Don’t be so consumed with numbers that you miss out on opportunities to experience joy in your life with your friends and family. Include activity in your day whenever possible. Try not to compare yourself with others and focus on your own health and fitness at any size.
