Part 2: What’s Healthy?
Your weight, your blood pressure and your body mass index are good indications of your overall health.
Yet, it goes further than this, too. You should understand how well your body is working, too. Do you have any physical limitations? If you physically can’t lift things for fear of hurting your back, this could be a potential problem that needs to be considered.
If you have problems with your legs, your neck, your arms or anything else, you should address these specific concerns. The best place to start is to work with your doctor to determine why you aren’t physically fit in those areas. That way, you can improve your overall health and then improve upon your situation by knowing how to.
The foods that you need play a significant role on your health. Foods are the fuel that your body requires to do a good job at the tasks that you ask it. In our machine look at the way that food works, the food that you consume is the fuel that your machine needs.
If you don’t give it quality food, it won’t perform the right way. Have you ever gone to put gas into your car and gotten to a really bad gas station where the fuel wasn’t high quality or even up to standard? It slows your car down. You don’t get the gas mileage that you are used to and you may even need to perform more maintenance on your car than you usually need to do.
In the way of your body, healthy food is just as important. If you consume the wrong foods all of the time, your body will not be able to perform as well as if you gave it the highest quality foods.
Without nutrition, your body can become ill faster and with greater intensity.
Your body does not heal as quickly from injury.
Your blood pressure rises, your heart rate increases to unhealthy levels.
You are more prone to limitations physically as well as mentally.
All sorts of problems arise from not eating a healthy diet of food. But, what is healthy and why is it healthy?
Vegetables are one of the highest nutrient rich foods out there. They provide antioxidants to a high level that helps to heal your body, improve your physical fitness from the inside to the out, and they are very low in calories meaning you can eat more.
Fruits are sweet so they can solve the sweet tooth. They also provide you with antioxidants and all types of nutrients that give your body the fuel it needs.
Whole grains are also an important product of a healthy diet. Unlike “white” foods, whole grains give you so much more health. They don’t cause you to gain weight like others. Choosing simple differences from bread to pasta to potatoes allows you to get the tastes that you love but without the added calories, fats, and sugars that can cause you health issues.
Water intake is also important. Those that do not get enough fluids end up having a body that retains water rather than having less. The body goes into dehydration mode, causing you to keep in all that you can. Consuming enough water means that you’ll system is hydrated, you’re eating less and that you aren’t getting as many calories from other liquids.
Meats are important parts of the diet, too. You need protein but you shouldn’t want to get it from fatty meats. Improving your diet to just lean meats will allow you to cut down on the intake of cholesterol which will ultimately clog your heart minimizing blood flow to the rest of your body.
If you don’t do anything else, improving these five areas is all you need to do. The good news is that you don’t often need a lot of work to make them happen.
