They say healthy eating is a wealth of health. Eating healthy is the backbone that holds life together. While the opposite is true, which opens up to millions of problems? Why does it matter so much about the importance of the food we eat? I mean I love seafood so why can’t I just eat that all day, every day?
Our mental stability is highly dependent on a quality diet we eat. More so, our body mass, functionality, and whole body equilibrium get stable when we balance our food intake. Quantity intake of food does not quantify how healthy we have eaten but count on making the stomach full.
You are What You Eat
If this were really true I may be a fish!
But in all seriousness, the condition of your health status is a reflection of your eating habits. Maintaining discipline of right eating is one of the most complicated processes to adhere to. Your body carries the life in you which therefore it is imperative to be careful on what you dip in stomach however how hunger pangs push you. Are you the type of person that has craving for sugary foods?
Too much of it will make you become obese. Another way that leads to obese is the intake of fast foods and soft drinks ( they have no nutritional value) and any negativity declared by your body mean it is protesting against wrong or too much of something harmful. Make your body a haven of right food and not garbage to throw digestible stuff you meet.
The Key is a Balanced Diet
Healthy eating should consist of balanced food in every meal intake. That is a good definition of healthy eating, where every part required in food is supposed to be present. Here is a food that consists of a balanced diet:
- Carbohydrates (bread, rice)
- Protein (egg, beans)
- Vitamin (Orange, spinach, kales)
Out of the three without including water should be carefully balanced whenever taking any meal, whether it is morning breakfast, lunch meal, and supper. From the common phrase, ‘too much of anything is poisonous’, that does not mean any food group is inherently wrong, but too much of intake as you neglect the other is health crime.
Avoid Junk Food
The world over is fighting this menace. Companies are raking billions of dollars pushing lives to their graves early as they lean towards what they love most. It is worrying why almost everyone is going the wrong direction? Does it mean a healthy food is meant for the sick?
This question never comes before one is diagnosed with emerging diseases that are as a result of unhealthy lifestyle. Try one day visiting any hospital and see the loved ones of the inpatients with bags full of food, actually good food. Until you wonder whether that person eats like so when healthy.
Most of those hospitalized individuals are there for adopting poor method of eating. Any junk food does not add any nutritional value to your body and if not checked, that’s a timely bomb waiting to explode.
First Things First
When prioritizing things in life important things are kept at the top and not vice versa. Right food combined with healthy eating habits should top the list before any other program is set. If you love your life, health timetable, well planned about each and every meal you take, ought to be in place acting as your guide. There is no other life apart from the one you have. Life is precious, but only when you act by making it great for eating healthy.
