Having been evacuated myself this past week, I understand the sensitivity around "burning houses." Still, the concept of mowing the lawn while the house is on fire is an important topic that's been on my mind for a while.
Mowing the lawn while the house is on fire is the concept that you're focused on one thing while there's a big ole other thing happening that probably needs more of your attention. Here's an example: you're wondering what kind of protein shake is best after a workout... you spend all your time researching protein brands... you buy that protein and have it religiously within an hour of finishing your workout.. but you're still hitting up the McDonald's drive-through every morning for breakfast. See what I mean? Even the BEST brand of protein will not counteract that Egg McMuffin habit. Now when you have that protein shake for a healthy breakfast (along with some healthy carbs and fat), now we're talking!
There are so many healthy tips and fad trends, not to mention fad foods, pills, supplements, etc... that get thrown around in the media. The second a Kardashian endorses a fruit, a drink, a whatever, it becomes something that "everyone should be doing." So we drink the drink, take the pill, and still don't see any results. With all these fads we've gotten so far from the basic tenets of good nutrition: eat balanced meals when you are hungry and stop eating when you are full. It really is that simple. Oh, and drinking water! How else are you going to put out that fire?
On that note, stay safe everyone!
