Our Know Yourself Ambassadors have been sharing why they think it’s so important to know yourself, and here are a few more reasons why we believe it’s the key to living your most joyful life.
1. Give your body what it needs to thrive
All of our bodies are different, so figuring out which specific nutrients your body needs to run most effectively is crucial to feeling fully energized and ready to take on whatever life throws at you.
2. Feel good about your decisions
For intersectional vegans like Know Yourself Ambassador, Cherise Daly, that means using Cronometer’s Nutrition Scores for reassurance that nutrients like B12 and Vitamin D are taken care of. “I have a better idea of what I’m eating and what I can do when I’m lower in certain macros or concerned about my nutrition,” Cherise said about knowing herself. “I’ve gained the knowledge of which foods include which specific nutrients, and as a result I’ve been able to more confidently talk to my doctor and nutritionist about my plans to stay on track.
3. See real-time results with your goals
“I have more energy and recover much faster with adequate nutrition. I tend to eat way less food than I need if I don’t track my meals. Keeping an eye on my nutrition has allowed me to avoid deficiencies on a vegan diet and get back to optimal shape in six to eight weeks.” — Know Yourself Ambassador, Joëlle Beauchamp
Knowing yourself also gives you the benefit of being able to more easily recognize when you’ve succeeded in your goals, you can actively see and feel the positive results.
