If you’ve been anywhere on social media I know you’ve seen posts about the Whole 30 diet along with slogans like, “Find your food freedom”. If you know someone who has completed or is in the process of completing this diet, then I’m pretty sure that your news feed has BLOWN UP with their posts about food and cravings, and “tiger blood”. What the hell is tiger blood? We’ll get to that later. (and my apologies to everyone who follows me)
I’m sure you’re thinking, UGH! Another friggin’ diet fad! Believe me, I’m with you! I’ve never been one to push for one specific diet or nutritional methodology. In fact I usually laugh at the futile efforts of those following any diet that is highly restrictive, I would adamantly proclaim, “You’ll never catch me doing one of those crazy diets!!!” Sure they may work for you in the short term, but there is a reason the term yo-yo dieting exists.
It seems like every few months a new AMAZING diet is advertising that it is THE GREATEST diet ever created and will help you lose weight FAST!
Life is not always easy. As a matter of fact, life can be downright brutal at times. Shit happens. Some of us have survived some pretty tough shit; abuse, trauma, loss of loved ones, serious illness, financial difficulties, things that you imagine you will never be able to survive. But you do. Even after the most devastating events, life goes on. And you survive. Who you are and who you become is a direct result of the unique series of events you have endured and how you have responded to those events. While you aren’t always capable of controlling what happens to you, you are capable of controlling how you react, how you recover, and what you take away from the experience
