The American diet has proven to be dead in a box, or a hormone induced comma. The foods that are pushed to us (that it is mandatory for good health) are more likely to help potential damage to the body, including increased allergies, sinusitis weight gain, clogged arteries.
One reason why self-induced suicide, is lack of knowledge. The best way to understand what the body does with the food you choose to put into it, is to educate yourself.
It is important to take steps to improve your overall health by making healthy lifestyle adjustments, to be healthy, and you MUST keep an open mind. Always investigate and find out more
Being passionate about your body is the first step. Knowing that this body God has given is the only one you get and want to treat it right is important to live a healthy lifestyle and making the right choices when it comes to what you put into it. So read as much as you can about the foods that you eat now. You can go to the library and find books about nutrition and diet.
Do not always take someone’s word for it. If your doctor wants to put you on medication for high cholesterol or high blood pressure can be a strong indication that it’s time to change your entire diet. Cutting out animal products, including products that are naturally high in cholesterol fat and hormones, can make a dramatic impact on reducing the overall cholesterol. And if you think that drastic to stop eating meat and drinking milk, using butter. What would medications for life to be, or surgery?
Is not it a little more drastic than changing your eating habits?
If you find that you do not feel good and want a change, find cookbooks with recipes that are full of vegetables, grain and fruit. Try a vegetarian cookbook they are loaded with recipes containing extremely healthy food, or try vegan cookbooks if you must stay away from dairy products. And remember that it takes a while to change your taste buds. In the first part foods taste bland but give it a chance and not throw in the towel, there are so many tasty fun recipes with heart healthy foods out there. If you’re a baker, try lactose free baking recipes and remember that it will take time to get used to it, what your taste buds are in training.
Health class opened my eyes wider. To be more specific it was a nutrition class “You and your weight.” You can take a class online, or at a community college. My teacher was a nutritionist, and very passionate about what she learned. I got so much knowledge, and I left 10 pounds lighter just by the knowledge I gained.
Again, it is very important to remember that this is the only body we have. Cherish it and take care of it and feed your brain with lots of valuable nutritional information. The more knowledge about what goes into your body the better. Consulting a nutritionist would not be a bad idea, or a dietitian, could they possibly give you a leap in the right direction.
Read the labels on your food and look up words you do not understand or are not sure. If you do not know what it is, it can make you sick and unhealthy. If you know what it is you understand what harm or good it can do for you. And knowing is half the battle to eat healthy to stay healthy.
