We’ve been working with a realtor for the last few weeks, who happens to be our next door neighbor and one of my best friends. We went to close on a house with her yesterday, and she was drinking a Dr. Pepper when we arrived. She tried to hide it behind her hand while she finished it, because she knew I and my husband are pretty healthy eaters, and she was embarrassed/ashamed. I didn’t want her to be.
I also didn’t want her to be drinking a Dr. Pepper, but mostly I just wanted her to NOT BE ASHAMED. I wanted to tell her to make her own choices, based on being educated, and then to OWN THOSE CHOICES.
90/10 Nutrition takes it upon itself to educate those looking to be educated. We identify those foods which are good to eat (green tier) or not good to eat (red tier), or somewhere in the middle (yellow tier). Not knowing is just not an option if you’re following 9010. We have it written down in tiers, and we have 3 coaches at the ready to answer your questions. If you’re a member of 9010, and you’re eating red tier, it’s not because you don’t know, or because you don’t know how to know.
I think the point here is to OWN your decisions, no matter what they are.
If you choose red tier on a regular basis, that is YOUR choice–so own it. You have your reasons. If your reasons are sufficient to you, then it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.
If you choose red tier once in awhile, that is YOUR choice–so own it.
If you refuse red tier all the time, never apologize for that. That is your choice. Own it.
No matter what, remember that you and you alone are in charge of your own decisions. We, in 90/10, will never judge you or shame you. We are too busy judging ourselves! ;)
