Health And Nutrition Should Be A Part Of Everyday Life

Eating healthy food is not just the latest fad or something people are doing just because they are looking for something new. Instead, it is something we must do if we want to change this downward spiral that we have been on for years. At some point in time, years ago, fast and processed foods became popular. Over the years they became the staple of many diets, mostly because they are easy, fast, and convenient. However, it is this convenience that is slowly draining us and cutting many years off of our lives.

No matter how good these foods may taste, or how easy they are to prepare or just go pick up, they are detrimental to our health. Many of these foods are filled or covered with toxins. These toxins are very slow acting in the fact that they, over time, make your metabolism (and other bodily functions) slow down to the point that the nearly come to a halt. Picture, if you will, some sort of thick gooey substance being poured over a bunch of functional gears. This is what is happening to your metabolism when you eat processed foods.

Even if you work out, over time, this will have an effect on you. Once these toxins have succeeded in slowing down your metabolism, you will begin to lose the energy it takes to get through a good work out. Your workouts become shorter and less vigorous, and over time, you find you may not even be working out at all. All of this because of the poison we are filling our bodies with on a daily basis. So, what is the solution?

Well, it is quite obvious, as you have likely figured out. Stop eating processed foods and stop eating out. Home cooked meals are always healthier than those found in restaurants. In order to maintain the energy you need to get through a day, you must eat foods that are more natural for your body; foods that actually help it to function more efficiently. Think about what people ate before fast food restaurants were so popular or even further back when we had to hunt for food. Those are the foods that should be found in your diet at least 80% of the time.

Lean meats, low-fat dairy products (like yogurt), nuts and grains, fruits and vegetables; these are the foods that will keep you healthy and give you back the years you may have lost from eating frivolously. Eating healthy food may take a little larger grocery budget and some additional prep-time, but the time that it gives back to you is definitely worth it. Try preparing most of your meals over the weekend, especially your lunches and snacks where you are tempted to just grab something quick. Once you get in this routine you will find that it comes natural to you. Before you know it, you will be eating healthier and will even notice a change in your energy level and overall attitude.
