Eating a healthy diet is not about strict limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, and boosting your mood.
Make an eating plan each week – this is the key to fast, easy meal preparation
Prepare your meals at home using whole or minimally processed foods
Choose recipes with plenty of vegetables and fruit
Avoid sugary drinks and instead drink water
Eat smaller meals more often
Becoming physically fit is an important part of achieving optimal health. A well-rounded exercise program is crucial to become and remain healthy. Physical activity improves your health in a number of ways. It promotes weight loss, strengthens muscles and bones, keeps the heart and lungs strong, and helps to protect against chronic disease.
The first step in your journey of healing is eliminating the consumption of foods which have a net negative effect on your health.
Every day, your body produces skin, muscle, and bone. It churns out rich red blood that carries nutrients and oxygen to remote outposts, and it sends nerve signals skipping along thousands of miles of brain and body pathways. It also formulates chemical messengers that shuttle from one organ to another, issuing the instructions that help sustain your life.
But to do all this, your body requires some raw materials. These include at least 30 vitamins, minerals, and dietary components that your body needs but cannot manufacture on its own in sufficient amounts.
Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrients—because acting in concert, they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help shore up bones, heal wounds, and bolster your immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage
Don't focus on what TO eat. Focus on what NOT TO eat. Our health protocol is basically simple but not always easy to follow for some people. We have gotten into the bad habit of “living to eat” rather than “eating to live” and have allowed the profit driven commercial food industry and their media advertising agencies to tell us what to eat and what’s healthy.
How to feel better about yourself and take control of your health by exercising influence over more than just diet and exercise
If you have been feeling run down and stressed lately and have too many aches and pains to name them all, you are probably feeling like you have lost control of your health. Don’t worry though there is always a way to take time for you. It is too important not to.
If you are already experiencing serious health issues, it can be very daunting when all these doctors and specialists keep telling you different things and you don’t know what to believe. To make sure you are getting the best diagnosis and treatment, you need to become the CEO of your own health. Do your own research, stay up-to-date on the latest studies related to your condition or symptoms, ask for copies of all your lab results and don’t be afraid to get a second, or third opinion if your gut is warning you that a treatment or even diagnosis is not the best for you.
