A Lifetime Gift to Ourselves….

Treating friends to a FANGA dinner

“If you know what is good for you, you had better eat everything off your plate or else….” Words of my mother may she rest in peace.

That brings me to the subject of food. Why is it we are so obsessive over food? What makes us eat unnecessarily? Why is it that eating healthy for most of us is problematic? I may not have the answers but I would like to share my thoughts on this tug of war we have with our appetite for food.

Nutrition, self discipline and balance is what I consider the most important aspect in taking care of one self. Our focus on nutrition should be the root of living a healthy life. By doing this, we will be able to stabilize our weight and develop a good eating pattern.

Coming from different cultures we have many traditional foods and eating habits. However, it’s never too late to adhere and aspire to wonderful beginnings – it is the key to life. So today let’s strive for self-discipline: You can achieve it! Although challenging at times it is an aptitude that requires stamina and commitment and therefore should not be on a ‘to-do list’. It’s something that should be worked on like daily exercises. Remember, in the end it all comes down to balance. Think of the body as a car, do you fill up your vehicle with more fuel than it requires? Better yet, do you try to over flood the carburetor in your car?

Eating and enjoying one’s life is important but let us be smart about it. Let there be a balance between celebrating and living smartly. Even though we survive each moment except the last one we can still enjoy these moments responsibly.

Message to readers:

During this festive season let us take the opportunity to take away that robust attitude that we often have towards food and give it a quick thought before filling our plates. Rather than complaining that “I am too fat” or “I need to go on a diet”, let our eating habits be a labor of love to ourselves, let it be an act of self discipline as we learn to honour and respect our bodies the way we should.

Merry Christmas, Happy Belated Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa to all my readers. Wishing you a safe and FANGA-ful 2010 season…..FANGA!

  3. Self discipline is the key ,and most of us have thrown the key away,and just eat for taste as opposed to nutrition .It is unfortunate to hear people complain about being too fat yet they refuse to alter their eating habits .I n this time we are bombarded by processed foods that only serve to fill our stomachs so we don’t feel hungry, but offer very little in terms of nutrition ,of which the end result is lack of energy, premature ageing and disease.At my age i still run around as if i’m in my twenties and it’s all possible because i am disciplined about my eating and don’t get wrapped up in holidays,allowing others to decide for me how i should feel or what i should eat at certain times of year.
