The overhaul in her lifestyle wasn’t easy particularly because she was schedule to go to Italy – the land of pasta, pizza, wine and cheese – the very next day after being diagnosed.
Ultimately, the choice was clear for the Oklahoma native. Her doctors laid out a grim future for her if she didn’t make better choices.
‘I had no choice, I was feeling so bad,’ she said. ‘I had to really listen to the doctor’s orders and cut all these things out.’
Munn shared some powerful advice from a doctor who told her to start practicing mindful eating.
‘He said, “You need to really work on your gut health, but the most important thing I can tell you is that whatever you eat, you need to really love it”‘, she recalled.
‘It’s not just about eating the healthy things and you’re not liking it. You have to find what you love to eat and drink because that will make a difference, because all the research has shown that when you’re happy, you create chemicals that are good for your whole body and your gut health as well.
‘When you are unhappy and you’re doing things that you don’t like, you’re eating things you don’t like, you will create other things in your body that are not good for you. In order to keep yourself healthy, you have to find things that you enjoy,’ she revealed. ‘That was so impactful for me.’
