Indeed we have now gone beyond the first quarter of the year. Have you managed to maintain those New Year’s resolutions regarding your intentions for a healthy diet and lifestyle? For many people staying on the white line that’s consistent with attempts to keep up their intentions/promises of a healthy diet and lifestyle can be difficult.
The first thing to acknowledge here is that we are not perfect and prone to make mistakes then it’s up to us all to recreate our intentions… and remember nobody at least not that I know achieves perfect health. The trick is to realize that it’s ongoing so keep yourself fired up and inspired on how you can maintain that healthy diet and lifestyle!
-Responsibility is the key and caring for yourself by bringing thoughts and deeds into action. Keep educating yourself on this lifelong process while learning to discern is another key. So, here are my 11 major health tips for a living a healthy diet and lifestyle. I would strongly recommend putting these tips in your health strategies.
1. Eat plenty of raw food
A raw food diet allows you to get the full nutritional benefit in your food. Food like this doesn’t get the vitamins and enzymes denatured (misshapen) through irradiation, heat or freezing and is therefore able to take part effectively in the body’s metabolism…
2. Avoid eating too much at once
Eating in moderate amounts throughout the day allows you to keep your insulin levels normalized. Fasting intermittently also helps with insulin levels. Both situations can contribute to also maintaining or losing weight because of insulin normalization.
3. Distinguish between healthy and unhealthy fats
Don’t fall for the marketing hype; you need good quality fats as part of an essential diet. For example, contrary to what’s been said saturated fats are good for you. An excellent example of a good healthy saturated fat is coconut oil with multiple health benefits.
4. Choose organic
Organic food doesn’t have chemicals laden as in the non-organic option. It is GMO free and has higher nutritional value…
5. Avoid GMO’s
GMO foods have potential harmful effects from their ‘toxic genes,’ contain a number of chemicals used as herbicides, fungicides, pesticides and fertilizers… which can not only compromise the nutrition value but also cause potential harm.
Some GMO fruits have been known to contain 30 times more fructose than organic.
6. Alkalize you body
Eat foods that contribute to raising you body’s pH for the healthier option.
7. Avoid junk foods
With their next-to-nothing (or nothing at all) nutrition value these toxic sugar laden, high salt foods have the effect of causing a whole range of health problems. Learn to discern this.
8. Drink plenty of good clean filtered or natural water
Having a plentiful supply of water for the body provides numerous health benefits.
9. Aim to get around 15-30 minutes direct sunlight a day
If not available say in winter times then try supplementing with vitamin D3 tablets. Around 5000 IU’s a day will suffice…
10. Exercise around 15-20 minutes a day
There is some excellent information to be found online explaining the health benefits of exercise and why it is needed.
11. Have a generally upbeat/up happy attitude in life
Remember thoughts, feeling and emotions… your attitude in life manifest reality. Keep a close monitor on how you see life and if needed make the necessary changes.
