Outward health needs to start on the inside. All too often we focus on trying to improve our outer appearance when it won’t do any good if we forget to take care of what is going into our bodies. So, before you start to work on what you look like, focus on what is below the surface.
Think About What You Put Into Your Body
There are many different ways in which you can feed your body. In order to get the best benefits of what you eat, consider what is in the food you are putting in your body. The best to do this is to keep a food journal. Once you have determined what you are eating and what that food contains, then you can see where you need to make the appropriate changes.
Food isn’t the only thing that we put into our bodies. Some of the things to consider are beverages (alcoholic and nonalcoholic alike), cigarettes, supplements, the air you breathe, and sun exposure to name a few. If you need to examine the health effects of what you are putting in, ask your healthcare professional and research it for yourself.
Make the Right Changes
It can be easy to get caught up on changing everything about the way you eat. Unfortunately, this is a recipe for disaster. If you are someone who likes to eat “junk” food, making a drastic change to eliminate your favorite foods can set you up for failure. Instead of changing everything at once, start with a few things at a time. Find substitutes that can become your new favorite foods.
When substituting, take a look at the health benefits of the substitution. Examine what you eat and figure out what you need to eat to benefit your body the most. If you are looking at changing your eating habits for weight loss, eat those foods that contribute to helping you body to lose weight. Same rules apply if you are trying to gain muscle, improve your skin, help with hair loss or make other improvements in your appearance.
Think Natural Foods
Did you know that all of the nutrients that most people need are already in many of the foods that you eat or should be eating? The vitamins and minerals that you need to put into your body to become healthy in and out can be found in natural foods.
The following are just a few things that you need in order to help you with such things as weight loss, improving your skin, helping your immune system, and even making your hair healthier, stronger, and creating growth:
– Calcium – found in blackcurrants, dates, mulberries, amaranth leaves, okra, seaweed, almonds, among others.
– Vitamin A – cantaloupe, grapefruit, passion fruit, amaranth leaves, butternut squash, carrots, kale, sweet potatoes, to name a few.
– Vitamin C – Brussels sprouts, blackcurrants, guava, strawberry, chestnuts, pineapple, for starters.
– Vitamin E – avocados, butternut squash, seaweed, almonds, and even hazelnuts.
– Vitamin B’s – these include B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, and B12. A variation of these can be found in just about every fruit, vegetable, and nut that you can find.
Put into your body what it needs in order to get out of it what you want. Using nature to help you succeed can be the best way in which to get the greatest results. Remember to do your research as well as discuss any changes you want to make with your healthcare professional.Thanks for reading, here is your IEC Guide To Vaping i promissed last week!
