Sometimes it’s easy to tolerate certain ‘things’ when we believe those ‘things’ are out of our control…but what if they’re not?
The definition of tolerating is …
“Allowing the existence, occurrence, or practice of (something that one dislikes or disagrees with) without interference”.
This can be knowingly, unknowingly, habit or ignorance.
Take a moment and think…is there something that is happening in your life that could be potentially holding you back from moving in the direction that you want to go?
In my line of work, I see subtle tolerances that appear as beliefs.
One that I hear a lot is…”it’s just my hormones.”
It’s super easy when we hit our 40’s and 50’s to believe that unwanted weight, hormonal imbalances, and our lack of energy are due to our hormones.
Just for the record, it’s not your fault for thinking this way!
Our culture thrives on promoting the powerless victim and comments like ‘You’re a slave to your hormones’, only reinforce those beliefs.
And while hormones can play a part in the changes we can experience in midlife, they’re often not playing the biggest part, as we like to give them credit for.
So what if you’re tolerating these midlife inconveniences like stubborn weight, and it’s not actually your hormones but your diet and lifestyle?
This is a far more empowering belief, and in my experience is far closer to the truth than the belief that you are at the mercy of your hormones.
This can also be quite a relief for women who don’t want to go down the HRT track and would rather try a more natural approach.
I see amazing changes when my clients transition to a plant-strong diet and start prioritising their health.
When they move away from heavily laden hormonal foods and embrace fibre packed gut loving plants, it doesn’t take long before my clients start to see and feel the difference.
Taking back your power is not always easy though, and it can feel quite overwhelming if you’re not 100% sure of the changes that are going to help.
This is where my expertise as a plant-based Dietitian, who walked away from the Food Pyramid and embraced plants after I got breast cancer in 2013, is vital.
Breast cancer is a hormonal cancer and I did a tonne of research to deeply understand the impact of our female hormones AND discovered the benefit of embracing plants to optimise my health.
