In fact, we’re now through the first quarter of the year. Have you managed to keep these New Year’s resolutions regarding your intentions for a healthy diet and lifestyle? Staying on the white line consistent with attempts to uphold their intentions/promises of healthy eating and lifestyle can be difficult for many people.
The first thing to acknowledge here is that we’re not perfect and prone to error, then it’s up to all of us to recreate our intentions… and remember that no one, at least not the ones I know, has perfect health reached. The trick is to recognize that it’s ongoing, so stay motivated and inspired on how to maintain this healthy diet and lifestyle!
-Responsibility is key and caring for yourself by turning thoughts and actions into action. Keep educating yourself in this lifelong process, while learning to distinguish is another key. So here are my top 11 health tips for a healthy diet and lifestyle. I would highly recommend incorporating these tips into your health strategies.
1. Eat lots of raw foods
A raw food diet allows you to get the full nutritional benefits from what you eat. Through such foods, the vitamins and enzymes are not denatured (deformed) by irradiation, heat or freezing, and can thus effectively participate in the body’s metabolism…
2. Avoid eating too much at once
Eating in moderate amounts throughout the day can help normalize your insulin levels. Intermittent fasting also helps with insulin levels. Both of these situations can help maintain or lose weight due to insulin normalization.
3. Distinguish between healthy and unhealthy fats
Don’t fall for the marketing hype; You need high-quality fats as part of an essential diet. For example, contrary to what has been said, saturated fats are good for you. A great example of a good, healthy saturated fat is coconut oil, which has several health benefits.
4. Choose Organic
Organic foods are not loaded with chemicals like the non-organic option. It is non-GMO and has a higher nutritional value…
5. Avoid GMOs
GMO foods have potentially harmful effects due to their “toxic genes”, contain a range of chemicals used as herbicides, fungicides, pesticides and fertilizers…which not only affect nutritional value but can also cause potential harm.
It is known that some GMO fruits contain 30 times more fructose than organic fruits.
6. Alkalize your body
Eat foods that help raise your body’s pH levels for a healthier option.
7. Avoid junk food
With next to no (or no) nutritional value, these toxic, sugary, high-salt foods have the effect of causing a whole host of health problems. Learn to recognize this.
8. Drink plenty of good, clean, filtered, or natural water
Keeping the body hydrated has numerous health benefits.
9. Aim to get about 15-30 minutes of direct sunlight daily
If not available, say in winter, then try vitamin D3 tablets. About 5000 IU per day is enough …
10. Exercise about 15-20 minutes a day
There is some excellent information that can be found online that explains the health benefits of exercise and why it is needed.
11. Have a generally upbeat/cheerful outlook on life
Remember thoughts, feelings and emotions… your attitude in life manifests reality. Keep a close eye on how you view life and make the necessary changes as needed.
– We hope that the reader has been encouraged to inquire and make the necessary changes to a healthy diet and lifestyle.
