Staying Healthy with a Proper Diet
Real food makes you feel good. Bad food makes you feel bad!
If you do not believe it, view the documentary: Super Size Me
Even doctors were shocked at how seriously ill the documentary film maker, Morgan Spurlock became after just one month of eating nothing but a certain company’s fast food selections. Spurlock, who was then 32 years old, gained 24 pounds, increased his body mass by 13%. His cholesterol sky rocketed to 230 mg. He experienced mood swings, sexual dysfunction, and fat accumulation in his liver. This was only due to the effects of his unhealthy diet. It took him over five months to get his body back, where it was before doing this experiment
You can do it! Even if you currently do not eat well, you can change things around for your family!
The first step is to stay away from food establishments that serve unhealthy foods. Look at the ingredients and nutritional details. Read labels, before you eat the foods. This includes grocery story bought foods. There are many grocery stores that prefer only to keep healthy or 99% healthy foods stocked in their stores. Read the labels. Be aware! Look for real food!
You need to stay away from bad fats, and sugars. A small amount is ok, but not something that is consumed daily. There are good fats, which are essential for optimum health. Some of these must be consumed daily. Here are some fatty foods that are great for your health: avocados, olives, olive oil (depending on how it is made and used), nuts (almonds, peanuts, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, pecans, cashews, walnuts), natural nut butters (containing just nuts and salt, or salt free), soy, sunflower, sesame, flax and pumpkin seeds, fatty fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, trout, sardines) (Limit fish intake, due to mercury ) AVOID IF YOU HAVE ALLERGIES OR INTOLERANCES!
