Eating meals that offer you health and vitality: Have you made this a priority?

Treat your body the way you
want it to treat you
I often give clients suggestions on how to eat healthier, more balanced meals, and share how delicious it can be to eat well. Eating properly not only maximizes the benefits of any workout you perform – giving you fitness results much sooner – it also positively alters your state of mind, and therefore, your overall health.

I know this kind of chain effect that food can cause in your body may sound obvious to some of you, but I’ve come to learn that it isn’t so obvious to most.

Regardless, I think it would be highly benefiting to all of you that I introduce a website that will leave you with no excuses not to eat healthy, delicious, balanced meals.

You can no longer say you have no time, or it’s too hard, it’s too expensive, it doesn’t taste good, or that you don’t even know where to begin. This website has covered all bases. Just take some time to browse around or sign up for the weekly newsletter.

What you eat can change the way
you feel, therefore, the way you live!
Whatever you want to know about food pertaining to your wellbeing, you can find it there: from healing foods; making healthy, delicious meals; to organic foods; how digestion really works and how to improve it, and so on.

The website is called The World's Healthiest Foods. This site is a leading source of information and expert on the Healthiest Way of Eating. It's one of the most visited website on the internet when it comes to "Healthiest Foods" and "Healthiest Recipes" and comes up #1 on a Google search for these phrases.

You can also find a list of some of the world’s healthiest foods here on one of their pages. Click on the names of each food to see complete detail on their nutritional facts. Are your favorites on the list?

Just in case you’re still not convinced on getting a move on eating well, here are 5 simple reasons that could give you one more shove! ;)

1. Have More Energy. When you eat the right foods, you'll enjoy a day filled with energy instead of the constant highs and lows that sugar gives you. Healthy foods are typically high in fiber and complex carbohydrates.

There is no genuine substitute for the 
feeling of total health and vitality
Unlike sugar, these compounds are digested slowly and will give you a constant energy release. You won't get the sugar highs and lows and your body will be able to better utilize the calories you give it. That means a lower body fat percentage.

2. Feel Good. Eating properly will make you feel better. Constantly eating foods that are high in fat and sugar such as candy and fast food can leave you with an upset stomach, headaches and other gastrointestinal disturbances.

3. Look Good. Most people’s favorite reason to eat healthy is to look great. Avoiding excessive calories and fattening foods will help you eliminate body fat and increase muscle mass. Foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean meat and whole wheat bread can taste great and help you achieve a fit and healthy body.

Eating healthy is delicious
and fun! Try it!!
4. Avoid Diseases. Eating healthy can help prevent diseases such as cardiovascular disease, strokes and diabetes. Saturated and trans fat has been shown to be detrimental to your cholesterol profile. And continuously eating foods high in sugar will put an enormous stress on your pancreas, which can lead to type 2 diabetes (formally known as adult onset diabetes).

5. Be Healthy. The most obvious reasons to eat healthy is so that you can be healthy. Eating healthy will mean less visits to the doctor and less sick days. This also means, you can live life with less stress and have more time to do the things you enjoy! 

To your wellness!
