Loving Your Body
Food is any substance that we consume by means of eating or drinking. It is usually composed of carbohydrates, fats, proteins and water. Foods that we eat became fats in our body and most of our sickness or diseases originate from these fats.
Some of us think that our body is infinite. We consume foods like there is no tomorrow. We don’t think of its after effect. Poor body maintenance will damage the system, in whole or in part. And nowadays, restoring these damaged parts is somewhat costly.
Nutrition information from the foods that we consume is absolutely lies. This information’s are intended for commercial purposes and not for the consumers’ welfare.
Therefore, a sensible diet and exercise is a prerequisite to avoid or prevent these diseases in destroying our body. Vegetarians are very much aware of the effect of animal meat in our body. It is not necessary to boost our health. Traditional soy foods in place of most meats are good for our health.
We should also avoid sugar. Foods do not require the use of sugar. Some foods or majority of them contain sugar and is naturally sweet such as vegetables and fruits. One of sugar’s major drawbacks is that it raises the insulin level, which inhibits the release of growth hormones, which in turn depresses the immune system.
Our body needs salt but most of us consume enough to annihilate our body. Salt is the primary source of high blood pressure. It also harms the cardiovascular system. It also increases the number of strokes and the severity of cardiac failure.
Pasta and potatoes are good foods unless it is overloaded with butter, margarine, cream, cheese and oil. Salads are also good but the dressing that we use contains too much nutrients of what our body needs.
So what do we need to control the escalation of fats in our body?
Applying moderation in everything we do especially the food intake and of course, exercise. Exercise stimulates the body to tune itself. Walking 30 to 60 minutes a day controls flab and builds resistance to heart disease, cancers and so much more. People who exercise the most often and vigorously have the lowest risk for heart disease, but any exercise will be adequate. Studies consistently find that light to moderate exercise is even beneficial in people with existing heart disease. However, anyone with coronary artery disease should seek medical advice before beginning a workout program.
Living a disciplined life and keeping mind and body in your control will make life much more enjoyable. Exercises in one form or the other are the best way to keep your mind fresh and body healthy.
Take care of your body. Use it or lose it.
