Sometimes, I feel like I’m a preacher. I feel like I’m on a mission to save people. Not their souls, but to perhaps try to get them to understand the role nutrition plays in their daily lives, and how much impact it has on their overall health and wellbeing.
Fortunately for me, I have this blog which allows me to speak out on topics that come to mind, or to discuss things I saw, heard, or otherwise came in contact with. It’s a place where I can clear my mind and get things off my chest, so to speak. Other times, I also post topics that people have asked me directly as I figure if someone asked me, perhaps others are thinking the same question.
I don’t offer my advice unsolicited. I used to do that when I first started losing weight because I felt a duty to say something. Now, however, unless the topic comes up naturally, I keep my mouth shut.
With all that said, however, when I am asked, I feel like I go into sermon mode. I have a certain script I go by, and I try to go through as much info in as non-threatening a way as possible and I try to cover as much information as I can in a way that is easy to understand and remember. It’s my anti-sugar sermon, and perhaps one day, I’ll write it down.
For now, I’ll just keep spreading the word here on the blog, or when people ask.
