Eat yourself healthy

You are what you eat the saying goes and today there surely is an abundance of food to eat. But what does it take to eat healthy? Do you need to spend a mountain of money to live healthy, because if that is the case it is surely hard to do so in today’s life?

Well the answer is no.  You do not have to spend a fortune on ‘health food’ or health products. “Living healthy is nothing more than a mind change” says Antonette Grant from Eat for life.  Living healthy is all about the balance, “Something as simple as taking off the skin from your chicken can already be helpful” Antonette added. Simple alternations in how you eat can have a huge impact on your health, for example sugar, less sugar means a healthier lifestyle. And if you have a sweet tooth you can train your body to crave for less by gradually lowering your sugar intake. Although this might be a hard thing to do it will definitely pay off in the long run.

“Eating healthy has many positive things to offer.  It can lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Furthermore it will give you more energy and boost your immune system to protect you from viruses” says Antonette.   When People Shift to a healthy diet,it isn’t as hard as it might seem.You just have to eat more low GI food and vegetables that will help you already. “Also don’t skip a meal; you will only slow your metabolism down, so you won’t lose fat or be healthy”. According to Antonette and Bernice van Heerden, the HPCSA strongly wants to warn that High protein diets can be very dangerous. Sure you lose weight fast, but it can have a very negative impact in the long run. Another thing is that starch is not such a bad thing as people make it. Another important factor is water, drink plenty of it and if you don’t like water, Sweeto or low-calorie cool drink can also be used.But you need to get use to drinking water.

It is extremely important to live a healthy lifestyle, because not only will you look good and feel good, but you will also live well.
