I think that if you want to reduce your weight, there’s no magical solution, no one thing, that’s going to do it for you. There has to be a comprehensive lifestyle shift that addresses the multiple variables that come together to affect how we eat, exercise, and behave in other ways that affect our weight. So as I’m work through this experience, I want to talk with professional in various practice areas who can contribute. Enter Candice Trudel.
Originally a nutritional scientist doing research in a lab, Candice moved on to open her own consulting practice, and she specializes in ayurvedic nutrition. I found it really easy to talk with Candice. No preaching, no lecturing. Just a genuine interest in how to help people enjoy food while being healthy and happy. She’s a pretty cool lady.
“You can’t out-train a bad diet.”
I don’t want to be in a position where I have to feel like I’m killing myself with exercise in order to offset what I’m eating. That’s not a solution, for me. I want to create a balanced lifestyle that supports my well-being, and that’s what Candice and I focused on talking about in this interview.
One neat thing that I had never heard anyone talk about before, which Candice refers to repeatedly, is the idea of “discovering your constitution.” Recognizing that we really are all different, and there’s not going to be one diet or one exercise plan that works for everybody is important to recognize. It’s easy to agree on that from an intellectual perspective, but a little more challenging to embrace in action. Luckily, there are people like Candice in the world who want to help.
