Are you feeling that you’ve gone off track with your health and fitness?
If your answer is Yes, then you need to read on…
Life can get so busy sometimes and the first thing that starts to get neglected is you! You start to miss your workouts, your healthy eating takes a back seat and before you know it you’ve taken a few steps back. Everyone and everything else becomes a priority.
But don’t despair!
Here’s a simple way to get your body back on the healthy eating track…
Increase your vegetable and fruit intake in a big way. Mainly focusing on the veggies and especially the dark green ones but choose a variety of colours in your diet.
We’re NOT referring to juice plans or living off smoothies just to be clear!!!!
Following a juice only diet for a week or two is actually not a good idea and pretty dangerous for some people. Sadly numerous websites, magazines and brands suggest that this is a great way to detox your body.
Let us share with you the truth…
Your body is an AMAZING piece of kit and one of the most incredible things it does for you without you even having to think about it is detox your body naturally, through your liver, kidneys and circulatory systems.
If it’s not doing that then we suggest you get yourself down to A & E pronto because there’s probably something seriously wrong with you and we can guarantee that you’re not going to fix it with a cucumber and broccoli drink!
Eat your veggies and fruit whole a good 96% of the time, that way you’re enjoying them as nature intended with all the fibre intact because your system has an inbuilt juicer/blender to help you extract the goodness and keep your system working properly.
To be frank, if you don’t have enough fibre in your body you get a blocked bum and that’s the least of your worries because low fibre intake is associated with increased risk of Heart Disease, Stroke, Type 2 Diabetes and Bowel Cancer.
The ONLY way to HELP your AMAZING body detox is to clear overly processed foods and drinks from your diet, drink 2 to 3 litres of water every day, exercise, stay active, rest and don’t use highly processed products in your home or on your body.
The wider variety of colours you choose in your fruit and veg, the more vitamins and minerals you will give your hard working and incredible body.
We recommend that you try one or two new types of fruit and vegetables every week, ones that you have never eaten before. If you can opt for foods that are in season in your country/county and buy organic where possible, especially if you eat the skin.
Eating natural foods is the best thing you can do for your health and wellness.
A plethora of veggie, fruity goodness is just waiting to be devoured.
So, get to your nearest grocers, farmers market or store and stock up on all the colours of the fruit and vegetable rainbow.
They help keep your skin glowing and youthful AND help your body fight disease too WHOO WHOOP.
