To get to the place you are today, you say you had to become “an expert in you.” How would someone else do that for themselves?
Andrea: The best advice I would give to someone on becoming an expert on themselves would be to take the time to learn how to listen to their body and recognize internal cues. The easiest way for me to do this was to eat simple, natural foods to help eliminate sugar, salt and fat cravings. Otherwise, my body might be saying, “I need cheesecake or a soda!”
Eliminating processed foods and processed sugars and eating “clean” for a few weeks helped me feel how my body reacted to certain foods. If I found something that didn’t agree with me, I eliminated it from my diet. The thing that helped me the most was learning to listen to my body and seeing what worked for me and expanding on that day by day. Every one of us is unique and if ultimate health is important to you, it’s worth it to take the time to become an expert on you, once and for all.
