Listen, I know, health is something very difficult to achieve sometimes and for health I mean everything from mental health to body health. Maybe for someone it's not a big deal but... What about you? Do you really feel satisfied the way you are right now? Do you think there no need or no room for improvement? I strongly hope you not.
So why do you need to care? Really... Let's leave aside all the "as important as" things like fitness, good regimen, good sleep, etc. and just focus on alimentation by now to understand things more easily. So let me ask you, are you already implementing a healthy diet so far? My guess is that the most part of you do not!
Two reasons for that...The first one is that the most part of people do not care (quite sad but it's the truth) and the second one is that you think you do but actually you are not. Luckly enough, if you are reading this it means you are wise enough to understand how much important this is.
Health is wealth and we literally are what we eat. But if you are not so much in pain to doubt it let me list JUST A FEW problems you will eventually face if you think this is not a big deal. Fatigue, constipation, memory loss, dental problems, cancer, hypertension, osteoporosis, diabetes and only god knows what's next. But this are just some first sigh problems.
Do you know that bad alimentation it's also the cause of energy loss and stress gain? And do you know how stress, for example, can put you on your knees? Stress is the cause of health problems like heart diseases, asthma, obesity, diabetes, headaches, depression and anxiety, gastrointestinal problems, alzheimer's disease, accelerated aging, premature death and... the list goes on and on.
Can you get what's happening here?It's all connected and if the first gear is broken, everything stops.
Now, it's not my goal to put you in pain but to make you understand how important this is. But why do we keep eating hamburgers if eating fresh broccoli is a hundred times better. Well, taste is the answer (but not the only one actually)! If it wasn't for this now we will be all healthy folks with no more concerns. And this is the critical part, the most part of people is not commited enough to eat what's healthy instead of what taste good.
But I've got the solution!What if there was something that actually taste good and help you lose weight permanently, plan your genetic code, prevent disease, achieve maximum physical performance and increase mental efficiency? Here I listed 3 awesome fruits that are quite yummy and can help you a lot in this:
The powerful antioxidants found in apricots help protect the body from free radical activity and damage to cells and DNA, useful also for cancer prevention. They are amazing source of vitamin C and vitamin A, as well as high in antioxidant.
In the apricot, the beta carotene play an important role in hearth disease prevention and cardiovascular health. It's high in fiber and this offers tons of benefits like colon health and its also great for digestion and improve the balance of the metabolism.
Eyes health is another important benefit and thanks vitamin A and carotenoids this is easy to achieve, for example this is great to prevent age related eye disease like macular degeneration. And what about skin health and weightloss? Apricot oil on the skin help relieve the symptoms like scabies and eczema. Also, the low calories and the favorable glycemic index carbohydrates are a great addition to any weight loss program.
First and foremost, pineapples are packed with vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, phosphorus and calcium. And guess what? It is also an amazing source of fiber and, as this could not end here, this fruit is really low in fat and cholesterol. It's a wise choice if you care about good health.
Pineapple has the ability to prevent cough and colds, since it's rich in vitamin C. It's also good not only to prevent but if you are already infected. Pineapples strengthens bones thanks manganese (a needed trace mineral for connective tissues) and eating pineapple will strengthen your gums that will help keep your teeth healthy and strong.
As an amazing source of beta carotene will help us to prevent macular degeneration that's the primary cause of vision loss in adults. Thanks it's anti-inflammatory qualities can alleviates arthritis and it's quite great for improving digestion.
There's no words to describe this one. Blueberries have the highest antioxidant capacity of all fresh fruit. Amazing source of anti oxidants like vitamin C, B complex, vitamin E, vitamin A, Anthocyanin, copper, zinc, iron, selenium, etc. great to boost up your immune system and prevent infections.
With a strong immune system, you won’t catch colds, pox, fever, viral and bacterial communicable diseases. Thanks to anthocyanin and the abundance of vitamin-C, blueberries can help neutralizes free radicals which badly affect disease and aging in the body. And what about reducing belly fat and risk factors for cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome?
Blueberries are also another great source to improve end preserve vision and can slow down visual loss thanks carotenoids. It's also an amazing source for achieving brain health, fight against heart disease, constipation and digestion.
And Now?Now what? Start implementing! Try to puts lots of these in your breakfast and in between meals instead of cheeseburgers next time (how do I love cheesburgers, damn!!).
Oh sure, I forgot to mention another superfood actually. Its name is ice cream! Yes, really powerful. Well, I'm joking obviously. But I guess that lots of people must think this is actually an amazing food if the overall consumption is so stellar. Now, don't get me wrong, ice cream is really yummy but...
I want to ask you just one last question. I know, it's your life and you have all the rights to do what you want but, would you rather eat that ice cream and feeling down, miserable, unconfortable and bad just the second after you did it and expose yourself to lots of what listed before or, implement these yummy fruits into your healthy diet instead and prevent all of this as well as feeling energetic like never before and in peace with yourself knowing this?
Let me know what your final choice will be!
