Our body is a temple of God. We must take care of it because it is a house for Soul.

—Harold Klemp
The Language of Soul

Today’s posting will be short. This quote says it all.

Here are some tips accepted in the medical literature:

  • Drink water
  • Eat right
  • Get enough sleep
  • Regulate stress
  • Exercise
  • Maintain Hygiene

I tried a few diets over the years and discovered that they didn’t work for me, particularly diets that require the elimination of a macro (carbs or fat) or some other item or nutrient from your diet. The key is balance and paying attention to your body. If you eat something and you’re allergic to it or it causes problems for you, stop eating it. Purposely eliminating food that has no effect on you is self-sabotage.

If you want to be a vegetarian for moral reasons, have at it. If you want to be a carnivore, have at it. The real key to all of this is to pay attention to how your body reacts to something. Unfortunately, there is so much propaganda surrounding nutrition today, it is impossible to make any sense of it. Today eggs are bad; tomorrow they’re good. Today, bottled water is bad; tomorrow bottled water is what you should be drinking.

If you have tried to do any research for yourself, you know this to be true. Just follow your body. It will tell you if something isn’t working. I learned I can’t use whey protein. I use it and I’m bound up for a week, regardless of the amount of fiber I eat. Plant-based protein powders are fine. I use K’chava, and it’s awesome. I’m not an affiliate or reseller of this. Here’s the link if you’d like to look into it: K’chava

I also discovered throughout my journey that typical multivitamins cause buildups on my teeth. When I went to a whole-foods vitamin, the buildups disappeared. I learned these things because I paid attention. If you seem to have a lot of issues with food allergies, you may want to go to a doctor and have them schedule you for an allergy test. They will find out everything you are allergic to and tell you what you can eat and not eat very quickly.

Well, that’s it for today, folks. I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day and are looking to enjoy a long weekend (President’s Day in the U.S. on Monday). Here’s to a terrific Saturday!

Until next time…
