The food we eat gives our bodies the ‘information’ and materials they need to function properly. If we don’t get the right information, our metabolic processes suffer and our health may decline. Good nutrition, based on healthy eating is one essential factor that helps us to stay healthy and be active.
One of the best things you can do for your health is to set up a daily exercise routine to help get yourself into shape. People who find they never have enough energy, can greatly benefit from daily exercise, as it helps boost energy levels due to the extra activity. Aside from getting a daily energy boost, exercising helps your overall health by lowering blood pressure, burning fat, boosting your immune system, and strengthening your body.
So what type of diet is best for disease prevention and to maintain a healthy weight?
The best diet is one that you can stick with for life. A healthy diet is a lifestyle, not a fad that is dangerous or difficult to maintain.
Abundant evidence suggests that the most healthful diets set aside animal products and also reduce fats in general, while including large amounts of vegetables and fruits. Eliminating most red meat and dairy products from your diet may be a powerful step in disease prevention. These products are typically high in saturated fat and cholesterol. They have also been specifically linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancers; such as prostate cancer.
