I grew up in a traditional "meat and potatoes" family. I scarcely ate fruits and vegetables because Doritos always sounded much more appealing. I was a very active child and teen that did not eat a well balanced diet. I carried a lot of weight in my midsection and had terrible cystic acne. I was constantly getting sick and staying sick for months on end. As I grew older I wanted to feel well and energized and I decided to make a change. I ate more fruits and vegetables instead of greasy snacks and fast food. I had always been active and noticed a change in my energy levels and performance. Healthy eating cleared my skin, and gave me confidence that I had never had. I also rarely got sick and if I did I could fight it off within a few days. I am a firm believer that food is medicine because I have expirienced its healing powers first hand. Its not easy to break habits and results don't happen overnight, but with a positive attitude and determination, you have the ability to be your best self.
