There are a few reasons that people turn to whole foods.
Some people just know that eating real food is better for them and they make the switch. If you are this person, you probably weren’t that far away from real foods anyway. Maybe you strayed for a while but in general you were brought up on good natural food.
Others are suffering from allergies or are healing themselves from illnesses such as diabetes. Some are trying to get off of medications such as blood pressure meds or cholesterol meds.
And then there’s always weight loss. After trying a million and one diets that don’t really work, some choose to turn to whole foods.
I’m of the belief that all reasons that lead you to whole foods are good ones.

“We love whole food, yes we do. To whole foods, we stay true. Yeahhhh real food!”
Right, where was I?
The last one is energy. Some people turn to whole foods because they are so over feeling sluggish, tired, dealing with huge energy crashes mid day, or an overall lack of get up and go.
I turned to whole foods for all of the above. I had all kinds of gut issues, I had weight I wanted to loose, I new I wanted to eat better since we grew up eating healthy, flavorful, natural foods and I knew it was a better way to live. At the time I didn’t realize that the biggest thing I was going to gain was ENERGY. Butt loads of energy.
Yeahhhh, whole foods.
So we’re doing a little series on How To Get Energy. This is part one of that series, focusing on 3 great ways to eat for energy. As I said, this first video is on eating for energy (not specific foods). Next, we’ll talk about getting natural energy and ways to harness more energy that doesn’t directly relate to food, and lastly we’ll touch on the actual foods we should eat for energy.
I hope you’ll enjoy the series and let me know which energy boosting strategies you’re going to implement in your life (or let me know what you’re already doing).
