You Know You're A Health Nut When...

How far is too far?

Posted on

Ani Phyo, Kris Carr, Kathryn Budig, Brendan Brasier, among others, are demi-gods in your eyes.

The kings and queens of the health world, to which you can only aspire. I mean, look at Kris Carr - the woman has cancer and she looks better than you do.

You personal library looks like this:

You might not be certified, but, let's face it, you're basically a nutritionist. You're pretty sure you know more than most health professionals. You've probably read more books on health than you did for your degree. And this time, because you actually wanted to.

You don't know how you ever got through the day before you started practicing yoga/ meditation

... and you wish sun salutations were more acceptable in public spaces, like the middle of the office, classroom, train, bus, supermarket, shop floor, family gathering...

You get stressed when you can't sleep, because you've read about how bad sleep deprivation is for your body.

This is one of the worst possible things that can happen.

And then you get stressed because your stressed, which is even worse, so you're basically just going to die now, regardless of diet and exercise.

Whole Foods/Planet Organic is your personal mecca.

You still remember the first time you went in one, and you were like, there's an entire supermarket dedicated to food like this?! You still walk around it in awe and can't believe some of the things you can pick up there.

You would rather spend money on organic food/ yoga classes than new clothes.

And can also justify this spending in 'I don't smoke/ binge drink/ eat fast food, but if I did, I would spend this much, therefore it's okay to buy this fresh juice/mochi/umeboshi plum/raw food anything"

C'mon. You know you've done this.

Your friends think your crazy.

If you don't live in California (so I believe), your health obsession can make you feel pretty lonely. But you don't care because you feel and look fabulous. And those special people in your life love you anyway.

No matter how healthy you think you are...

... there'll always be someone, online or not, telling you you're diet is appalling for still eating carbohydrates/animal protein/fat/sugar/raw/cooked/gluten/dairy/vegan/processed foods.

You've seen far too many show downs on forums and MindBodyGreen. Best just to listen to your own body, for a change.

But ultimately, it's a blessing to experience this beautiful world...

... and whatever healthy means to you, you want to honor your body, regardless of its physical shape, ability or size, that allows you live in it.
