The events I'm going to tell you about have happened recently, in the last two weeks, but I'm still thinking about them.
One week ago I was talking live on my Instagram account that I was preparing to go to a nutritionist. A new nutritionist, who I have never been to, specializes in biochemistry and from whom I had planned to learn more about combining foods according to my specific health conditions. One of the reactions that caught my attention was the following "But why are you going to the nutritionist ???". Written like this with three exclamation marks.
The second episode I want to talk to you about happened a few days later when a reader wrote me what an unpleasant experience she had with a cosmetics brand that I refused to work with, that she has a big problem with acne and that she has need some advice from me. My advice was this: go to the doctor, do a series of tests to find out what is the cause of acne (hormonal or bacteria), stop testing all kinds of treatments found on the Internet and consult a dermatologist. Her reaction was, "I hope they don't get there." It simply gave me the impression that he would seek the help of a specialist only in the event of a disaster.
I am simply outraged that we are a people who turn to specialized help only after they have exhausted all the options (which are often not effective at all) and most of the time when it is too late. We don't have food education, but we don't want to be educated either. I remember as a child eating a lot of processed foods (Parisian, pate, sausage), and at school I would only nibble on pretzels, chocolate croissants or chips during breaks - foods I currently touch so rarely that I simply forget that they exist. . But this is the situation now, after a few years of study and following the advice of specialists.
We are almost in 2020, and the information is just a click away. Just want to stay ignorant. Just don't want to invest in your physical and emotional health. We have to accept that we are different and that we react to different stimuli. I found out after taking my AND Bodykey test to find out which foods cause me to gain weight and which I have told you about in more detail. here. At the event Meet & Greet from the beginning of the month I was asked how I felt about the genetic testing and what is my opinion about the Bodykey program. Well, it is the best start to a healthy lifestyle.
The Bodykey kit containing the genetic test is ordered online by here. After receiving the kit at home one morning, you collect the saliva samples with the sticks from the package. The instructions are very clear and the kit is simple to use. Then you send your samples by mail to the Amway headquarters which sends them to the laboratories in Austria, and you will receive the results after 2-3 weeks in your account on the platform https://bodykey.ro/ where you will have access only after purchasing the kit. This platform is an extraordinary resource of information for you to have a healthy and balanced lifestyle: personalized diet plan (with a multitude of healthy recipes and what amounts to use so as not to waste food), exercise plan and exercise based on your test results and lots of information about a healthy lifestyle that will help you improve your quality of life.

Then you get it pphysical exercise chain according to your genetic profile you receive a number of physical points (FP) that you have to accumulate weekly. Depending on the duration and intensity, each activity has a certain number of points.
Last but not least, the platform also provides you with a series of educational and motivational articles and information, so that you can better understand what a healthy lifestyle entails and have a constant dose of motivation.
And the system of colored dots (you have to enter in the application the food consumed, physical activity and the amount of water drunk) helps you to stay within the optimal limits. For those of you who have more competitive nature it is a very effective tool!
Food education is lacking in schools and we rarely receive it in the family, but that does not mean that we cannot take measures and decisions so as to correct old habits that have hurt us in the past. If I could turn back time, I would be much more careful what I eat and I would make more exercise. But I can't turn back time, but from now on I can take more care of myself and make my health a priority.
