Do you get confused by health headlines?

Do you get confused by health headlines?

Let’s face it! Most of us take on the healthy living journey trying to incorporate exercise and to lose weight amongst a huge pile of other tasks and challenges.

We reduce fat and salt only to be told sugar is our real enemy. We went for the burn and now are told a good walk is doing us as much good.

I am no expert but I think loving your body and listening to it works well whatever the headlines are saying. Also, I always question who might be funding the “research” that fuels the headlines.

Information is good but all too often busy mums can find that headlines just tell them they are doing things wrong again and sometimes at a time when their self-esteem is at a low ebb anyway.

We are all in this together with the Blogging to Jogging linky. I love reading your posts and learning that so many of us struggle with the same issues. Let’s keep on inspiring one another on our healthy living journeys.

The Rules

Blog about healthy living in a way that you see fit. It might be some exercise you did, a healthy food choice, a lifestyle change or a recipe. It is important to link back to this post so that we can all inspire one another as we move forwards positively.

  1. I try not to pay too much (if any) attention to the new headlines related to health. I’m all about, as you say, listening to your body. Every body is different and needs different things in different amounts in my opinion, what works for one may not work for another.

  2. I am totally with you! So many headlines and articles telling us that something is bad for us, only for the next day to inform us actually it is good for us… I gave up a long time ago! I follow my own pattern and rules and know what works for me and what doesn’t.
