The Benefits of Healthy Eating


These are questions we have to ask ourselves? because after all We already know all the benefits of eating healthy foods. We've read it in books, seen it on TV, and been told by our friends.

The problem is we've become too accustomed to our lifestyles. It's easy to order a take away or to ignore the exercise bike collecting dust in the corner, and why walk when driving is so much easier?

It's a vicious cycle and one we seem to be passing on to the next generation. Why is Ronald McDonald is more widely recognized amongst kids than a few former presidents of the United States?

If we want our kids to grow up and lead a healthy life we're going to have to set the example first.

Here's a great reminder of all the wonderful benefits of healthy eating:

Longer life - Research has proven those who at eat less saturated fats, processed foods, etc. live a longer and healthier life, and are less prone to illnesses and disease.

Happiness - There's no doubt when you eat healthy foods you'll suffer less from those terrible ups and downs that make us moody. Who wants to be grumpy all the time?

Vitality - Healthy eating along with exercise will give you tons of energy and make you feel "on top of the world." Imagine bouncing around from one thing to the other without having to drink tons of coffee!

Great Skin - Everything we put into our bodies is reflected in our skin, hair, nails, teeth, etc. The way we age is partly due to genetics but it's also due to our lifestyle choices. Healthy eating is our "miracle cure" for staying gorgeous.

Loose Weight - Have you ever seen an overweight person who eats healthy food and exercises? I mean TRULY eats healthy food? probably not. Unless you have a thyroid condition you'll definitely loose weight and maintain it once you embark on healthy eating.

Those are just a few of the benefits you'll experience by eating healthier foods and leading an active lifestyle.

So why not stop thinking about it and actually do it? Live longer, feel great, have tons of energy, look gorgeous, and loose weight? and if that isn't tempting enough, what about the thought you could actually give all of the above to your kids.

Well you can, simply set the example and they will follow. You may actually be surprised at how easy it all really is? really.
