Food should be eaten for survival and not comfort. However, most times, food is comfort. We binge on our favorite food during sad times or happy days. It brings us a sense of feeling good when we indulge in it. Be it ice-creams, pizzas, burgers, Chinese, Indian and more.
The taste is what we run after more than the nutrients that our body needs.
There is nothing wrong with having what you want, but always within a limit. Too much of everything is terrible for anyone.
Health is wealth. This is a common phrase we’ve grown up with, but do we know its meaning?
As humans, we want to eat while we’re alive, and it’s not wrong to crave, but gluttony is bad, and so is eating and not working out.
Processed food is unhealthy—chips, cookies, biscuits, cakes, etc. The amount of fat and sugar used in such processed food will require you to exercise for months to lose it.
This doesn’t mean you have to cut it all out. Unless you have health issues, then it is advisable to do as your doctors tell.
Children these days are brought up in a junk food paradise. And it isn’t easy to make them understand that it is not good.
Social media has made it difficult for adults alike. Food is now photographed and uploaded before being eaten. This makes others who view the videos or story crave outdoor food—leading to the next big thing- food delivery.
One of the reasons for ordering takeouts and other unhealthy food is lack of time away from work. Sitting at the desk makes you lazy.
While all this is beneficial to those who need it, such as older people and sick people, it has also made us lazy. The kitchen is no longer to make food but to heat it.
An unhealthy lifestyle has become the norm, and obesity is at an all-time high. This does not mean slim people are healthy; they have other underlying health issues that aren’t as obvious.
To live a healthy lifestyle, one must have self-control; there is no way to lead a good life without it.
Stop eating out. Quit junk food, processed and oily food: all fried food and heavy crabs and alcohol. Cut out sugary drinks and substitute them with water. Or cut fruit-flavored water.
Have a balanced diet of veggies, protein, minerals, with a small quantity of carbohydrates and good fats. Nuts are a good source of good fats; they are also a good substitute for snacking and keeping you full.
Consume lean meats such as chicken and salmon. Limit portion sizes to control your weight and risks of other cardiovascular diseases.
Eating right can’t always be the only thing to have you lead a healthy lifestyle. It would help if you exercised to burn out all the calories you eat. If you don’t, it can lead to weight gain.
Cardio is good in helping lose weight, but better if you mix it with weightlifting, aerobics, or walking. This helps in building muscle and burning out unwanted fats.
Good sleeping habits seem to have ended after school days for many of us. With bust work schedules among adulating in life, it is hard to find a balance. Sleep is a luxury for many of us.
However, it is vital to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep every day. Your body needs this time to heal itself from everyday business.
Certain people thrive off an extreme working lifestyle, which is not good. Your body cannot handle that much stress and can cause you to have other health issues.
Stress eating is another problem for many—this leads to gorging on chips, burgers, and pizzas while working in a stressful environment.
Although stress is inevitable, it must be controlled, as excessive stress can lead to headaches, muscular pain, and sleep disturbances.
Yoga and meditation can help you relieve some stress and help you be in a relaxed mode. This, in turn, will help you to eat and sleep better.
Drink lots of water. It helps flush out all the toxins from your body. It keeps you feeling full and is the best substitute for any other drink.
Some studies suggest drinking water before eating to make you feel full, thus limiting food intake and preventing cravings.
