It seems like
everyone is always talking about diets, and what you should eat
and what you shouldn't eat - about 'junk' food and 'healthy'
food. What does it all mean? Is it really important? Yes!!
Eating healthily can make you look different and feel different.
Even small changes in the way you eat can make a difference.
Benefits of healthy eating
can cause some effects that you will notice pretty quickly. For
example, a healthy diet can help you:
body weight so that you can make sure you are not underweight
energy to enjoy all kinds of exciting physical activity, like
surfing, football, netball or dancing
body while you are growing and developing so that you reach
your full physical potential.
There are also
some benefits that you may not notice straight away, but are
worth thinking about. Scientific evidence and research show that
a healthy diet can help you avoid diet-related diseases.
These are diseases that usually develop when people are over the
age of 40. For example:
(brain damage due to blood supply problems)
diabetes (the most common form of diabetes)
(thinning of the bones).
Think of your
parents or grandparents - do they have any of these diseases?
Wouldn't it be good if you could avoid having the same problems
they do? By healthy eating now you can reduce the risks of
developing these diseases later on. The risk of developing some
cancers can also be reduced by eating fruits and vegetables and
cereals, because they contain anti-oxidants and fiber.
Eating patterns are linked to the development of health
problems. The foods that are more likely to lead to health
problems are often called 'junk foods'. Foods that contain lots
of fat, salt and sugar are the villains! Also, foods that do not
have enough fiber are also a problem.
patterns and illness:
Diets high in
fat (especially saturated fat) have been linked to increased
risk of heart disease - like heart attacks. Part of the reason
is because fatty plaques can develop in blood vessels so not
enough blood can get to your heart, or brain or other important
organs. These changes to blood vessels have been found in young
people (although usually heart attacks don't happen until people
plays a very important and complicated role in the body. But
diets that are high in salt can put you at risk of high blood
pressure, which in turn can affect your brain... your eyes... your
contain a lot of fat and sugar are high in kilojoules.
That is, they provide the body with lots of energy. If you are
not using much energy - i.e.. not exercising much - then you
are likely to put on weight.
sugar (especially when you don't brush!) contributes to
enough fiber makes you more likely to suffer from
constipation, and you may be more likely to develop cancer of
the colon or bowel.
Modern life is fast! There is a lot to do and not much time.
So many people rely on ready-to-eat foods and 'fast foods'.
Because fat and salt and sugar make foods taste good, 'fast
food' tends to have a high level of all these ingredients, to
make people buy more. That is OK for once in a while, but not
for every day.
should we eat healthy?
greatest law of the human biology is replenishment. By supplying
our body each day with the elements of which it's composed, we
can attain complete health providing due attention is given to
our mind and spirit. Health is the indisputable foundation for
the indemnification of life. Our bodies are made up of
many atomic elements. The principle ones are: Oxygen, Calcium,
Sodium, Chlorine, Carbon,
Phosphorus, Magnesium, Fluorine, Hydrogen, Potassium, Iron,
Sulfur, Iodine, and Manganese.
your bloodstream, organs, glands, tissues, cells, and the rest
of the human biology do not contain these elements in their
proper proportion, you are living in a state of decadent
existence. We not only die prematurely, we suffer along the way.
the long rang retribution of the laws of Mother Nature catches
up to us for the infraction of Her Laws, an infinite number of
ailments come as a warning to us.
you have discovered the bliss, which results from the
application of a little study, and a lot of mental fortitude,
you will never go back to the way you were living.
you do not eat healthy foods, use supplements!
part comprising the human biology is composed of microscopic
cells containing the various elements mentioned above. These
cells are continuously being used up in the course of human
existence and must constantly be replenished to be rebuilt.
diet consisting, exhaustively, of cooked devitalized foods,
inevitably results in the demise of these cells, creating
disease. Do you know that most of us today are suffering from
certain dangerous diet deficiencies which can not be remedied
until the depleted soil from which our foods come are brought
into proper mineral balance?
alarming fact is that foods, fruits and vegetables and
grains, now being raised on millions of acres of land that no
longer contains enough of certain needed minerals, are starving
us no matter how much of them we eat.
tests prove that the fruits and vegetables, grains, eggs and
even the milk and meats of today are not what they were a few
generations ago. It is bad news to learn from our leading
authorities that 99% of the American public are deficient these
minerals, and that a marked deficiency in any one of the more
important minerals actually results in disease.
upset of the balance, any considerable lack of one or another
element, however microscopic the body requirement might be, and
we sicken, suffer, and shorten our lives.
mineral content of the earth's soil continues to deteriorate at
an ever-accelerating pace as a result of world over population,
and mass farming. This
means that if you depend totally on a so called "balanced
diet" for the required minerals of which the human biology
is composed of, you will not obtain health unless you SUPPLEMENT!
grown on our depleted soil just doesn't do it for us any more.
Supplementation in this highly processed day and age is an
absolute must, especially for the fitness-oriented individuals
like you and I. In
fact, exercise without supplementation is straight suicide.
Athletes sweat out more minerals in 5 years than a sedimentary
individual does in 75 years.
human genetic potential includes a life free of disease with a
longevity potential of 120 to 140 years. To do such would
require all 90 nutrients, which includes 60 essential minerals,
16 vitamins, 12 essential amino acids and 3 essential fatty
acids. Degenerative, chronic diseases are totally preventable
with supplementation of the aforementioned. There are five third
world countries presently living out this genetic potential.
They consistently consume high levels of 60 to 72 minerals with
to the lack of attention to the basics of the human biology we
Americans fall short of our genetic potential. Do not consider
it an expense for the purchase of vitamin and mineral
supplementation, but rather consider it an investment in your
bank of health.
all, what good would all the money in the world do for you, if
you do not possess your health? You will save many of thousands
of dollars from unnecessary operations, besides the perpetual
impairment to your health, as well as save you from premature
old age and an untimely death.
