Eating right will bring the right results, as the way in which we treat our bodies will bring the result in-kind. You remember the old saying about computers, “Garbage in – Garbage out?”
The same is true of our bodies, in that we have choices in what we eat and drink and those choices have a lot to do with our overall state of health.
It also must be kept in mind that a great deal of the food that we purchase at the grocery stores is processed food. What that means is that much of the food is put together chemically with additives and ingredients that make the food taste good, however the nutrition is not there.
Unfortunately, man has discovered ways to artificially produce large quantities of “food” very inexpensively so that huge volumes can be manufactured quickly and brought to market for big profits, but the results to our bodies are a disaster.
Our meat, for example is full of antibiotics, hormones and excess fat of the wrong kind, and it is no wonder that there is a glut of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and other serial illnesses among our population.
The best thing that we can do is to find freshly grown produce and meat as the staples for our diets. There are farmer’s markets spring up all over the country, and some of the major stores are beginning to feature organic foods.
The largest lack of healthy food that is lacking in most American’s diets are fruits and vegetables, largely due to the fast food craze over the past 40 years or so. A steady diet of burgers, fries, soft drinks, pizza and white flour breads is just a recipe for problems.
Get on a healthy meal plan that features freshly grown vegetables and fruits, lean meats, and low sugar and carbohydrate content, and you’ll be on your way to a more healthy life.
