Why You Should Eat Healthy by Desire-Granted Promise

Does eating healthy really matter so much in the real life? You might ask yourself. Well, this article answers just that. It goes without saying that eating well is fundamental to good health and well-being. But healthy eating also leads to longer, happier life. There are certain cancers, type-2 diabetes, and a host of other diseases that can be avoided by simply eating well. In case you don’t know, those who eat well, live well, have good body weight, lots of energy and vitality, stronger bones and better mental health and a great deal of other benefits – even radiant skin. Besides, if you eat well, it improves the secretion of certain hormones in your body including hormones from the pituitary gland and other hormones needed for physical and sexual growth and well-being but it goes deeper than that!

Before we digest the advantages of eating well, let’s see WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE ARE MALNOURISHED. Malnourished is not basically the lack of sufficient food. What you are supposed to eat that you don’t eat or what you eat that you are not supposed to eat or worse still, what you eat in excess are all termed malnourishment. High intake of calories, fat, cholesterol, sugars, soda and all the numerous junk foods is also malnourishment. Malnourished people tend to be violent, have mood swings, lose concentration, become weak, have stunted or abnormal growth, suffer from mental health conditions, be less smarter than average, contract diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure or suffer from teeth issues, have poor sexual life and the list is endless!

Are you now ready to know the merits of eating healthy? Maybe not yet! What is healthy eating and what isn’t healthy eating? How do I eat healthy? Don’t stick to the myths you know – learn the facts! Healthy eating isn’t ‘cutting calories’, eating little or just eating a balanced diet! It is taking in all necessary nutrients needed for physical and mental growth and development, strong internal body defense, skin development and proper body organs functioning in the right proportions in every meal, continuously and regularly. Creating a food menu might help but having a mental understanding of this is much better. Not all proteins are healthy – fatty meats are not! Eat lean proteins, whole grains, healthy carbohydrates, cholesterol-free oil and a whole lot of fruits. Avoid junk food, lots of soft drinks, fried foods, sugar snacks etc. Take more of milk, fibers, bananas, oranges, apples, eggs, grains, fish, nuts and some good fats. The function of these foods in the body are well known and includes a wide range of benefits ranging from body-building to body repairs. Look deeply into their functions in the web
