“You are what you eat”! For sure you have heard this phrase before. It is a fact that almost everyone knows and yet, more and more people eat foods that can potentially cause harm to their health. They continue to eat foods that have high content of oils, fats, salts and other dangerous ingredients such as preservatives and food color.
It is a known reality that eating too much of these kinds of foods are dangerous to one’s health. It can result to different kinds of diseases and illnesses like diabetes, heart ailments, hypertension, high blood, certain types of cancer and other dangerous diseases that can eventually lead to one’s death.
In order for you to avoid acquiring such incurable illnesses and diseases, you must start eating healthy, if you haven’t already. But, what does eating healthy really mean? How do you determine healthy eating?
For most people, eating right has always been a quest. But it should not be. All you have to do is to take everything in moderation. As we all know, too much of anything is not good. And that saying goes well with the food you eat.
It is basically just fine to eat anything you like; more so when you are not prohibited by your doctor to eat certain kinds of foods. You can still eat burgers, pizza, pastries and other food that are rich in oils, fat and sugar, you have to eat them in moderation and as rarely as possible.
Like processed foods, for example, too much of these types of foods can cause hemorrhoids. As we all know, hemorrhoids can cause real discomfort. Having too much processed food in your diet can cause your stool to become too hard, which becomes too difficult to pass through during bowel movement, thus causing hemorrhoids if this goes on for long periods of time.
So, in order to avoid the risk of acquiring hemorrhoid, try to eliminate processed food from your diet and replace them with foods that are rich in fiber like wheat and oats. If you cannot completely eliminate the intake of processed food, try to lessen it at the very least.
Eating healthy simply means making wise food choices. Instead of grabbing a burger, why not have a sandwich instead? You can go for a chicken or tuna sandwich. It’s also tasty and filling like a burger but it contains less salt and less oil.
The secret to healthy eating is minding the food that you eat. Always mind the food on your plate, especially when you are having a buffet meal or when ordering a meal from a restaurant. You have to savor each bite and chew your food thoroughly. This way, it gives your mind time to tell you when you are full, thus avoiding over eating. Also, eating in a relaxed, mindful state helps you digest better, not to mention that it makes you feel more satisfied with your meal.
Remember, you do not have to rely to memorize the nutritional value of the food you eat. Moderation is the key to be able for you to achieve healthy eating and you’ll never go wrong about it.
