What does it really mean to be “healthy”?

There is so much misinformation out there when it comes to health and fitness, from quick fixes to unrealistic ideas of what “healthy” or “fit” really is and what it should look like.

My goal has always been to give real people realistic goals, and share accurate information along the way. 

It’s important to know that just because someone is skinny or looks physically fit, it does not mean they are healthy. 

This also means that just because someone carries a little bit of extra fat, it does not make them unhealthy. 

Just because someone has a fit body and poses with a protein shaker, it does not make them healthy. 

Just because someone has figured out what macro targets they need to hit everyday to maintain their current physique while filling their diet with as much processed foods as it will allow them to – it does not make them healthy. 

Most people’s health/fitness journeys normally start with aesthetic goals (mine included), but I don’t think it should end there.

I am here to encourage you to go beyond the physical, and take it a step further and realize why making this lifestyle change is important. 

Feeling confident in your body is important, but it’s also important to have a healthy relationship with food and to fuel your body with the nutrients it needs to maintain optimal health, right down to the cellular level.

It’s important to know that being healthy isn’t a quick fix made up of teatoxes, fat burners and waist trainers – and that leading a healthier lifestyle is about consistently fuelling your body with things that are good for your mind, body and soul.
