No matter what shape you are in right now,
your body is an incredible, intricate machine,
and you have the power to make it stronger and healthier (*)
I've been recently reading "Body" by Cameron Diaz.
It's the first book from my long list of health-related books, which I'm hoping to read in the coming weeks.
You may ask, what's the point? Don't worry, ask away, I won't take it personally ;)
The reason is simple, I'm finally ready to re-educate myself.
Why not simply educate? Well, because that has been already done... I'm afraid...
Throught all the years, first at home, at my grandmas, then on my own as a student living on a tight budget, then as a hot couple (oh, the memories)...
Well, all those years have formed me in one way or another. And they have especially shaped my eating habbits.
I thought I knew waht was healthy, what was junk food, and what I liked.
Well, sort off...
I never really learned why spinach is actually healthy when you sprinkle it with some lemon juice... People have just repeated it like a mantra. So I took it and repeated it too.
Or I never learned what are endorphines and why it's so easy to get addicted to them ;) funny, isn't it?
Only after i started doing sport regularly, I learned that the funky I GOT THE POWER feeling right after a good and sweaty work out is the endorphines taking over my body;)
So that's why I'm talking about re-education myself. You know, like educating again. With facts, and not just things repeated by family and friends.
What are carbohydrates, macronutrients and fats? What types of oils are to be used for what exactly? And what does it really mean to be active?
You can find all those things and more, in Cameron's new book. It is super user friendly and written in a convincing, digestible way.
Definitely recommend it click
