Over the past few months I have done a few Q&A’s on instagram and i kept getting the same question over and over again “How should food make you feel?”
How Should Food Make Me Feel?
- For nearly the first 20 years of my life I would feel tired and sluggish after I ate. Most times I immediately wanted to take a nap after eating. I was constantly feeling irritable throughout the day too! It wasn’t until I completely shifted my diet to a diet that is filled with real and whole ingredients that I finally started feeling ENERGIZED after I ate.
- One thing I want to point out here is that food sensitivities and trouble with food can manifest in more ways than just issues with your stomach or feeling tired after eating. For me, certain foods really affect me mentally more than anything. For years I struggled with feeling irritable after eating certain foods (mostly beans.) Not only would I feel irritable, but I would also start feeling super anxious and itchy despite not experiencing any obvious digestive issues.
- One thing that has really helped me identify which foods make me feel my best is by keeping a journal and writing down what I am eating and how I feel after eating it. Make sure you note any symptoms that you may be experiencing as food affects everything! Not just the gut 🙂
- Remember, food should make you feel energized and alive! Not tired and fatigued.
