this simple challenge will open your eyes…
Posted by Andrea Nakayama
Are you ready for a challenge?
No, this won’t be challenging to adhere to or to execute.
I’m going to make it easy for you to use one of the top tools for helping you feel better faster, without paying any money for your efforts (yes, it’s a free challenge), or left wondering if the next dietary fad or theory is the one that’s going to finally do the trick for you.
Over the next three weeks, I’m initiating a Food/Mood/Poop Tracking Challenge.
Hold on! Don’t run away. Let me explain more.
In our clinical practice at Replenish we see hundreds of people who just aren’t getting better.
Like you, they may have niggling complaints that just don’t seem to resolve – from belly fat to fatigue to nighttime waking – or they have bigger issues and confirmed diagnosis and, as a result, have felt like they have to hand themselves over to a system with some apprehension, skepticism and even fear, especially when the “fix-it” mechanisms don’t seem to fix it at all.
Ironically, one thing that all of these clients have in common is that they’re each unique.
One diagnosis of Crohn’s is not the same as another.
Breast cancer can develop for different reasons.
Your Hashimoto’s manifests with signs and symptoms that are distinct from mine.
Yeah, yeah, we mostly have the same organs in there.
But the form and function (what they look like and how well they work) of those organs is shaped by your genetics and your lifestyle and I can guarantee you that no two look exactly the same.
Given those differences, can there be a one-size-fits-all protocol?
Is there THE “healthy diet” for all?
I’m afraid not.
And that’s what brings me to our challenge.
We can get so caught up in tests and trials that we forget we have some of the best diagnostic tools right at our fingertips!
the FOOD you eat
your elimination patterns (yes, I’m talking POOP)
the noticeable signs & symptoms you feel throughout the day (we’ll call this “MOOD”)
They’re telling on their own…
and have the power to take you from moving through your day like a zombie, subject to your habits and patterned behaviors, to a more heightened state of awareness.
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
For now, take the plunge.
It’s easy! (And fun.)
This is an opportunity to engage with yourself.
Grab your Food/Mood/Poop Journal below and come let me know on the Replenish PDX Facebook page that you’re IN!
We’ll start the three-week challenge on Monday.
Are you in?
Track with community and support. Grab your tracker and let’s go!
Here you’ll find the Replenish PDX Food/Mood/Poop 5-Day Tracker.
Go ahead and download your copy.
Starting Monday we’re going to be taking on just one column for 5 days.
Come join me on the Replenish Facebook page where we’ll be talking details and let me know you’re IN for the challenge!
Don’t be scared.
I’m going to show you how fun and revealing this can be!
P.S. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your heartfelt notes regarding my dad’s passing two weeks ago. It’s been a hectic, intense, difficult and tender three months, managing his sickness and care.
To be honest, I’m launching this Food/Mood/Poop Challenge now because I need it! I need to come back to center. And, I figured you may too…for reasons of your own. So let’s do it together.
