Personal Well Being Self-Assessment

Prior to doing a google search on health, fitness and wellness assessment, I will say that I

recently visited the doctor and she prescribed or suggested that I followed the KETO diet. The

Keto Diet is essentially eating a diet that is mainly fats, proteins and extremely low-carb.

Initially, it was a hard diet to convert to because of the amount of carbs that I realized I was

eating once I cut them cold turkey.

It was going to the doctor that made me much more aware of my dilemma on why I could

never lose weight and the doctor was able to tell me plain and simple just by looking at me that I

was suffering my insulin resistance. On doing research for this assignment, I found that insulin

resistance could be easily reversed if I tried to change my diet completely like cutting out sugars,

processed foods and things like dairy to make better choices for myself. Some of the other

changes I can make is by making more of an effort to do some exercise daily. I do live a

sedentary lifestyle because of my current job and current dilemma of doing online school. I saw

some areas of improvement I could do also by meal prepping my meals. It would save me time

and effort when it came to eating my meals.

Some of my strengths that I was successful would have to be control over what Im

eating. Despite having a sugar addiction and insulin resistance, when I was told by the doctor

that I needed to change my diet, I made an effort to change it THAT day. I went shopping, tossed

out all my junk food and made dates for when I could treat myself. It was upon doing that that I

learned that I didnt like the foods I was putting in my body and the only reason that I did was

because I was initially addicted to it.

Using this information, I do believe that I can create a better lifestyle for myself and undo

some of the damage that I did onto my body by mistreating it. Its okay to occasionally go out

and eat processed foods, but the intention of making a lifestyle change and committing to it is to
be consistent and strict with yourself to form good habits and choices. Below, I included the

assessment I created and I based it on the questions Ive often been asked when I would inquire

about weight loss. By using this information, I could better understand how I can help those in

my place of work, giving them information or additional resources to the benefits of a healthy

lifestyle and why it is important to build healthy habits in the long run.
