A lot of ads are popping up and say that we need to eat and be healthy to achieve the six-pack abs or curves that many people connote as “body goals”. Yes, it feels good that we are fit outside! But isn’t it right that we are also aiming for a better health to help us age better- meaning we are healthy inside and out? That is better right? A lot better to have a brighter future!
Everything you put in your mouth now can equate to how you age. It has been shown in research that what we eat has a positive effect on our body in many aspects such as in our cardiovascular system, muscles and joints, brain, eyesight and so much more!
Certain foods such as healthy fats are excellent sources for optimal brain functioning:
- Olive oil
- Coconut oil
- Omega 3 fatty acids (excellent anti-inflammatory properties)
Several factors contributing to heart disease:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Poor eating habits
It makes sense to eat right while you are younger in order to avoid heart disease as you age. So here are things that you need to consider in eating right for optimal health:
- Listen to Your Body
- Drink 8-10 Glasses of Water
- Eat moderate balanced meals
- Eat Enough Fresh and Live Foods
- Reduce the Amount of Processed Food
- Take Time to Enjoy What You Eat
- Eat Enough Fiber
If you want to live a longer and healthier life you must learn how to eat right for optimal health. As we age, it becomes more and more clear that "we are what we eat". The saying "garbage in equals garbage out" starts becoming abundantly clear. To achieve optimal health, we must embrace the fact that it is the nutrients from the food we eat that fuels our body and our health. Therefore, we must become very aware of how, what and when we choose to put into bodies.
