Perks of a healthy diet
No one has a perfect diet. We all crave the good stuff; the cakes, the wine, the chocolate, the fast food. Some of us have more will power than others though, when it comes to eating the right things. When you’re faced with the tricky decision of choosing between the tasty healthy salad, and the greasy and delicious burger, how do you decide?
Just bear in mind these thoughts.
Your overall state of well being will be much improved if you eat healthily. Healthy foods make you feel good about yourself, and will put you in a happier mood to equal the one that accompanies playing foxy bingo or catching up with friends. Happiness releases endorphins that help you fight off potential sickness and bugs. It’s a win situation.
Most people are not blessed with a fast metabolism, which results in their having to be choosy about what they eat. Regardless of whether you want to eat the cheese burger, sometimes you have to do what’s best for your waist line and pick the salad. Luckily there are plenty of lower fat meals and foods that are just as satisfying. You just have to do a little research and try everything.
Energy and health
We all have our naughty indulgences, but sadly these foods are often not the best source of energy. By eating healthier foods, you are reducing your cholesterol, blood pressure and fat absorption, all things that lead you to feeling sluggish during the day. So if you go for a run, eating your pasta salad will give you more energy than a take away.
From drinking tea to eating your vegetables, a healthy diet does wonders for your skin. By not eating greasy food all the time, you are less likely to gain blocked pours, which tend to result in shiny skin and acne. Your skin tone and its texture is also improved.
