Whatever We Eat Reflects On Our Health!
If one knew exactly what to eat and how to eat, then they would be making the best of their lives. Sadly, we are all too busy and are therefore unaware or disinterested in rectifying our eating habits. And when we fall sick, we visit doctors, who simply hand us chemically loaded medicines plus restrict the consumption of certain foods to cure our illnesses but never tell us what to eat to live healthily.
Here are certain things I got to know from my nutritionist who I visited a few days ago when fallen sick. I have reaped amazing results from making small changes and I hope you too will.
Skipping Breakfast May Bring Harm
Sugar is a silent killer. If you wish to enjoy a longer and healthy life, you need to manage your blood sugar levels regularly. Once your sugar levels are under control, the hormonal secretions and the immune system will function well. And this is the reason why breakfast is the essential meal of your day. Include good quality proteins and good fats into your breakfast to keep up your immune system strong. This will control fluctuations in your blood sugar.
Fruits Are Nature’s Best Gift
Avoid those myths that say fruits are evil if heard any. Unless you have medical conditions that have caused you to be intolerant towards fruits, you can safely have them without any fear. Fruits are rich source of fiber, minerals, and vitamins. They are a perfect replacement to your delicious sugar-loaded desserts. Guavas, Apples, and oranges are good options. What you can dump is fruit juice which is almost oxidized and fiber drained.
Don’t Avoid But Limit Your Carb Intake
Intake of refined carbs is sinful. Our ancestors, who enjoyed great health and long life, never had pastries or biscuits or doughnuts. I know these are irresistible, as I’m fond of these too, but moderation is the key to good health. Genetically our bodies aren’t capable of digesting these foods properly and hence they end up making you ill.
Indulge In Good Fats Regularly
All fats are not bad. There’s a difference between the good and bad ones. Olive oil, groundnut oil, nuts like almonds, peanuts, cashews, and clarified butter are rich in good fats. These are very important not just for your heart but your brain, immunity, and skin too. The body requires good fats to maintain the cholesterol levels so intake of such foods helps.
Learn The Way Of Eating
Every food has some valuable nutrient. But if you do not chew them properly, you will be deprived of it. One should sit properly in a cross-legged position in order to circulate blood to the stomach, see the colors, and smell the aroma of the food and then eat it. Sounds unrealistic and boring, isn’t it? But, this is how one should be eating their food and not in a hurry or hassle. Try to keep yourself as much as unoccupied with other works while eating.
Therefore, try and inherit these habits. Things might hit bumpy roads with pebbles around at first but would become easy with the passage of time. Enjoy your food and live a long and healthy life.
