What exactly is a healthy diet? With all the ridiculous scams and misinformation out there, how do you determine what a healthy diet is? You have to start with the basics. It is that simple. And the basics begin with figuring out what is real food and what is not. Think of your body as the finely tuned machine that it is and then ask yourself, what kind of fuel you think you should put in it.
A well balanced diet that’s healthy is all about giving your body the nutrition it needs and that nutrition comes from nothing better than food in its most basic form, raw and straight from the garden. A healthy diet is much more about what you eat rather than how much you eat so, you can kiss the calorie counting and endless dieting good bye.
The best thing you can do to keep yourself healthy is to eat a healthy diet…all the time, not just when you want to lose weight. Eating healthy is a long-term lifestyle choice, something you are going to do for your entire lifetime.
The Food Industry Has Failed Us!
Is eating healthy really what we have been lead to believe – milk for strong bones and teeth, protein in the form of lean beef or chicken and maybe a “healthy” microwave dinner if we are “on the go?” Unfortunately this diet is what is identified as the Standard American Diet or the SAD and it is exactly what the food companies want us to eat because it makes them rich!
And what’s so wrong with the SAD?
Has it made us a healthier people? Are we better off as a nation because of it? Are kids getting healthier or is obesity a serious problem amongst teens today?
With all of the health studies, advanced health care, the war on cancer dating back to the 70’s, and the most advanced technology available on the planet we have to ask ourselves why do we still need to spend $1.3 trillion a year on health care in the United States. Why aren’t we getting any healthier?
Why after more than 30 years since the “War On Cancer” was declared, do we still have an increasing cancer rate. Yes, we have many more people surviving cancer but, the rate at which people are getting cancer is increasing. We have come a long way in taking care of sick people, but we haven’t made any progress as a nation in preventing those people from getting sick. What exactly is the relationship between cancer and diet?
And why do more than 15 million people in the United States have diabetes? Why do we still have more heart problems today than we did 30 years ago? Why is more than 50% of our population on some kind of prescription drug?
We spend more per person on medical care than any other nation in the world yet, we aren’t any healthier. Why is this happening in a country that seems to be able to solve nearly any technological problem? Why can’t we solve our medical problems? How would life be different for us if we were to be a nation of healthy individuals and didn’t have to spend so much money on prescription drugs, radical surgeries and hospital stays? Isn’t the best health care plan just to eat better?
