Your body is a machine. There’s no trading it in for a new model! Exercise is important, but you can’t out-train a bad diet.
What Foods Should I Eat?
In plain language, base your diet on vegetables, lean meats, nuts and seeds, little starch, and no sugar. That’s about as simple as we can get. Many have observed that keeping your grocery cart to the perimeter of the grocery store while avoiding the aisles is a great way to protect your health. Food is perishable. The stuff with long shelf life is all circumspect. Try to eat real, whole foods as often as possible. Avoid fast food, packaged & processed foods. Don’t be fooled by “low-fat” and “sugar-free” products that are likely loaded with chemicals and ingredients that you can’t pronounce. If you follow these simple guidelines you will benefit from nearly all that can be achieved through nutrition.
What Foods Should I Avoid?
Excessive consumption of high-glycemic carbohydrates is the primary culprit in nutritionally caused health problems. High glycemic carbohydrates are those that raise blood sugar too rapidly. They include rice, bread, candy, potato, sweets, sodas, and most processed carbohydrates. Processing can include bleaching, baking, grinding, and refining. Processing of carbohydrates greatly increases their glycemic index, a measure of their propensity to elevate blood sugar.
