Healthy Eating Habits
Healthy Eating Habits
Why would you want healthy eating habits? If you live in the United States why should you take the time to eat healthfully when it is much more convenient to eat fast food? Why would you care about eating healthfully if you have insurance and your bills will be covered anyway? Why should you eat healthfully when there are prescription medications for almost anything that could go wrong with your body? Is your life made easier just because you eat healthfully? Could your life be better just from being healthy?
It’s so Much More Convenient to Eat Fast Food
If you live in the United States, (I am referring to just life in America because that is what I know), there is a really good chance you have a very packed schedule. It’s a funny one to think about but, did fast food become the billion dollar industry it is because we started filling our schedules so much? Or, did we begin filling our schedules so much because we didn’t have to be home preparing our meals? This is a good question to ponder.
Okay, so, with an abundance of fast food establishments all across America, why should you bother taking the time to prepare your own meals when it is so much more convenient to grab food on the go? If it doesn’t matter to you if you get three times as many calories from one fast food meal then a meal you would most likely cook at home. Most fast food meals are packed with almost as many calories as a person should be eating for the entire day. If it doesn’t matter to you that you will get 33-74 grams of fat in one fast food meal? Which is about as much fat as any person should take in in 1 day. Also, the fat calories from fast food are usually from trans-fats and saturated fats and have negative effects to your liver, your heart, and your blood. These are not the healthy fats that our body needs.
Why would you care about eating healthfully if you have insurance and your bills will be covered anyway?
You pay for insurance, why shouldn’t you just tap into it and let your insurance company cover your medical expenses? Okay, that’s one way to think about it. But, realize that in the last few decades insurance companies have been paying out trillions of dollars. The increases in how much the insurance companies are paying for their insured has multiplied in the last few decades. This matters because it is these astronomical costs that are of course passed on to all of us. This is the reason we all pay an increasing amount to be insured.
Over the last 6 decades, the health of Americans has steadily declined. With that, of course, the medical costs increased. It is not coincidental.
Why should you eat healthfully when there are prescription medications for almost anything that could go wrong with your body?
Even if you are 70 years old, “popping a pill” is taken very casually. Any person younger than 70 has been growing up in an environment that sees prescription medications daily, which allows most people to feel comfortable with them just because of their lifetime of exposure. Some of the exposure is by seeing friends and family members taking medications. Think about the kids now that are growing up seeing medications advertised on television…It is that exposure that breaks down barriers of trust and the thought of harm. Many people don’t have the slightest hesitation about taking a prescription medication. The thought is, “Prescription medications have been around for decades now, they can’t be hurting anyone, right?” This is where what you don’t know can hurt you, even on the FDA website you can look and see the “Adverse Events Reporting” statistics. Here is the range, in 2004 there were 34,739 accidental deaths from prescription medications, and there were 198,828 serious outcomes. Fast forward to 2013, on the FDA website, there were 117,752 accidental deaths and 711,232 serious outcomes.
The better question then is, should you have healthy eating habits and take care of yourself now or just rely on pharmaceutical medications when you will need them?
Could Total Body Health Make Your Life Easier?
In many ways, yes. If you were healthy, if you had healthy eating habits, it could be easier to get up in the morning. If you were healthy, even your sleep could be better. If you were healthy, it would feel great to be able to go out for a walk or bike ride. It would be easier to do even the tasks and errands that you have to do if you feel good. Every aspect of your life filters through your brain with how you are feeling. If you feel good, everything you have to do is made that much easier. This is usually a point that goes unnoticed by many people, but it makes a crucial difference to your life.
Could your Life be Better Just From Being Healthy?
I think so. By being healthy and having healthy eating habits you have more time for fun if you don’t have to go to many doctors appointments. If you are healthy, you will feel good and that means you will most likely be able to enjoy your life. Your brain is impacted by your health, if you are healthy your perspective would be different because there is a difference in the neurotransmitters and hormones produced in a healthy body than the neurotransmitters and hormones that are produced in an unhealthy body.
Bring on The Most Effective Diet
Everyone can have healthy eating habits. If you want to learn how to develop truly great eating habits that you and your family can stick to, take a look at Full Body 30 Day Vegan Cleanse. The sustainable eating plan that can change your life for the better!
All Natural Body Cleanse
If you have been thinking of doing a cleanse, before you do, take a minute to think about why you want to do a cleanse. This will make it easier for you to decide what type of cleanse you should do. Think about how much of a difference you want this cleanse to make to your health.
Would it be something you just want to flirt a little with, or something that will make a substantial difference to your health and impact your life?
Do you want to be able to eat detoxing foods or do you want to go the juicing route? If you want to do a completely natural cleanse, question any cleanse that has protein powders or vitamin supplements.
Why would you want to take anything during this time of cleansing that you can not find in nature, ie during cleansing everything you ingest should be from plants not supplements or man-made protein powders?
How Much of a Difference do You Want this Cleanse to Make?
This will actually be the biggest question to answer for yourself. It really comes down to why you want to do a cleanse in the first place. Are you just interested to see how you can feel by cleansing a part of your body? Or do you have a current health situation that you want to change? Do you want to loose weight? Do you want to learn to be healthy? Maybe you see very clearly that the Standard American Diet/(SAD) only leads to chronic diseases and the use of pharmaceutical drugs usually for the rest of your life.
If You Want to Cleanse to Impact Your Life
Once you have realized your intention for doing a cleanse you will have realized how much impact you want the cleanse to have in your life and to your health. There are very brief 2-day, 3-day and even 7-day cleanses. Most of these are about juicing or fasting and taking a supplement or using a protein powder in a juice. A cleanse this brief won’t make much difference to your overall health. And, a protein powder or a supplement is a man-made substance that you would not find in nature. Keep this in mind if what you truly want is an all natural body cleanse.
A 14-day cleanse could be very similar. On a 14-day cleanse, you may loose a little weight, usually nothing substantial and most of the time this weight is readily put back on when you introduce foods again. Even with a 14-day cleanse, there won’t be any deep changes made to your health. Compare 14 days to even 1 year, 365 days, and you can easily see that 14 days won’t make much of a difference.
If your intention is to do a cleanse that will have impact in your life, then you are better off choosing a cleanse that will be longer than 21 days. By doing a 30 day cleanse, you will make changes to your lymph system, your intestinal tract, your immune system, your brain, and your liver. A cleanse that you do over a period of time is how you will get changes into the cellular level, changes that will make a difference to your health.
A Natural Cleanse is One of the Best Ways to Detox
The best ways to detox is over a period of time and naturally. Think about this, at the age you are now, it took this many years for your body, your health, to become this way. If you really want to make changes, then you would be better off putting more time in, and doing an all natural body cleanse that will truly make a difference. Doing a cleanse that will make changes into your cells will change your health. Because, your health is a result of the health of all the very small cells that we are made up of.
Eating Detoxing Foods versus Juicing
Many of the cleanses available are juice fasting cleanses. And this is the type of cleanse that you can do for 2-3 days. But, its hard to do this cleanse longer and carry on with the normal demands in your life. When you have completed this type of cleanse, what have you gained? What have you learned that you can bring with you as you move forward?
It is possible to do a cleanse that has you eating detoxing foods. Eating detoxing foods is a great way to do an all natural body cleanse that supports your body in all its functions and can be very beneficial to your organs. Very importantly, you will not be starving while you do this type of cleanse. You will actually be eating foods. It is absolutely possible to eat foods while you cleanse and be able to feel great the whole time.
All Natural Body Cleanse vs Protein Powders and Supplements
If doing an all natural body cleanse is one of the important criteria in making your decision as to which cleanse to do, then you would not want to do a cleanse that has you using protein powders and vitamin supplements. Neither of them is something that you would find in nature.
If doing a cleanse that is 100% natural is your goal, taking herbs does fall into the criteria of being 100% natural. As long as the herbal products are composed of 100% herbs, no fillers, no added vitamins, then it is completely natural and would fit your goal.
Reset Your Body
The human body is so amazing in all its millions of communications and functions it performs daily in order to keep us alive. The human body is a highly trained organism. It is always adapting. And the human body is also very forgiving. Because the body adapts and is very forgiving, resetting your body is a possibility.
Healthy Eating Habits
If you want to reset your body you will need to have healthy habits. The human body that each person has is a direct result of the habits, the lifestyle, of each person. I fully believe that every person can have a healthy lifestyle. Be honest with yourself and ask yourself: How many vegetables and fruits do I eat every day? How much water do I drink daily? How many ounces of soda do I drink every day? Do you eat processed foods every day? Do you smoke? How many alcoholic drinks do you have on a weekly basis?
Foods that Detox the Body
Natural foods will help you to reset your body. If you eat only foods that are natural, you will reduce the burden to your liver from processed foods. You can also choose to eat foods that are liver cleansing that will make a big difference to resetting your body.
Vegetables and fruits are the foods that will be the best to reset your body and to detox your body because of all the phytonutrients in them. Vegetables and fruits are easily broken down by our digestive tract and all the fiber is very helpful to the intestinal tract as well helping to reduce inflammation, keeping blood sugar levels stable and helping to reduce cholesterol and helping to keep waste products moving along and out.
Get Moving as a Healthy Habit
Our human body is made to move. Really it is. We actually produce more inflammation by sitting, the longer you sit, the more inflammation your body produces. Make exercise a part of your weekly schedule. Put it in your schedule. Cardio workouts should be 3-5 times a week. Strength training should also be 3-5 times a week.
Regular exercise is one of thee best ways to reset your body. It stimulates your metabolism. It helps your liver to be more efficient. It stimulates your intestinal tract.
Exercise is very beneficial to your central nervous system, your brain. The positive benefits here, since your brain is in charge of your entire body, are numerous. From blood flow being increased into the brain from exercise. To stimulating biochemical production from exercise, think serotonin and endorphin’s and reduced cortisol. To setting up strong neuro-connections and even new ones when performing new types of exercise, new ways of moving. Regular exercise is great way to challenge your brain. It helps to keep you young.
Putting it all Together
Putting all these elements together will definitely help you to rest your body. If you adopt healthy eating habits and healthy lifestyle habits your body will adapt. You will change your body, the cells, the organs, your brain. Every one of us is a make up of our cells, what nutrients the cells get, and the bio-chemicals our body produces. If you want to loose weight, or you want to un-do years worth of living an unhealthy lifestyle that has you just not thinking clearly, or dragging everyday, then having a plan to reset your body would be your best approach.

Resolution Solution – Part 4
It is now a few weeks past January 1st, and it may be time to re-think again about the New Years resolution you made for yourself. Think about why you wanted to bring about those changes into your life. Remember the end result you wanted from that resolution. It gets tough for the majority of people even by the end of January to stick with their resolution. This is evidenced in the statistic that by the end of January, the majority of people with New Years resolutions have already given up on them.
That is a shame. This is the perfect time to think about how you can make this resolution manifest for your life. You may have to dig down a little bit more and realize the changes you need to bring into your life. You may need to talk to your supportive friends and family members and engage their help. You made need a plan.

All plans have steps to them, to be done in a specific order to ensure success. Your New Years resolution will require steps to be taken to be successful. The first step is the thought, the thought that there is a change you want to make. Most likely, this has been a thought you have had several times. For most people, their New Years resolution comes about after they have thought about the matter for a period of time. It is a big enough issue driving millions of people to make a decision that going forward from January 1, they strongly desire to make that change.
To be successful in your New Years resolution:
Step 1: Be clear on your New Years resolution.
Step 2: Take action.
Step 3: Commit to your New Years resolution
Step 4: Have a plan in place that will allow you to be successful at your New Years resolution.
The very delicious kale salad I made only came about because all of the above steps were followed.Step 1) I had an idea, the kale salad. Step 2) I took action, I bought the kale and all the other ingredients I wanted in the salad. Step 3) I committed to making the salad and the dressing for it.

Step 2: Take action.
Step 3: Commit to your New Years resolution.
Commit to your resolution.You have thought about it, you have wanted the changes, now commit to make those changes. To ensure your success, have a plan, and have support. Support in terms of friends or family that will support you in wanting these positive changes. If you have people around you that will not be supportive while you make these changes, please minimize your time with them. Or maybe, you have friends or family in your life that will make these same changes in their own life and you can bring about these changes together. I know that there have been groups of people that have done Full Body 30 Day Vegan Cleanse together. They loved the experience and loved being able to go through it with friends.
Commit to yourself. Most all New Years resolutions are for positive changes people want to bring into their life, realize that you are worth the time, the effort and the learning that may be required for you to make these changes.
Commit to yourself. On the other side, once you have made the changes you want in your life, there is a better you!
Step 4: Make a plan. This post to be continued. The yummy kale salad I made only came about because I had a thought, I took action, I committed to that thought of what I wanted, and then I had a plan.
Resolution Solution -Part 2
As you may have read in yesterdays post, almost 40% of Americans make New Years resolutions, being millions of people. Out of that 40%, 38% are resolutions to loose weight. Even better than just loosing weight though is learning to be healthy. Because if you learn that- you have the knowledge to stay healthy for the rest of your life!
Even better than that – you can raise your family healthy! Full Body 30 Day Vegan Cleanse teaches you how to do that!
To be successful in your New Years resolution:

Step 3: Commit to your New Years resolution.
Take action toward this new direction you want in your life. All New Years resolutions are for positive changes. People have very good intentions. And, people sincerely want to benefit from the positive resolutions that they had desired. This leads then into what is required next, and that is action. A resolution is a thought, to achieve results, taking physical steps toward the resolution will begin to bring that resolution closer to actually being manifested.
As in this yummy kale salad. It started as a thought that this is what I wanted to make for dinner. Then I went out, got the kale and then proceeded through the steps needed to manifest this yummy and VERY healthy dinner for my beautiful family! Stay tuned tomorrow for making that commitment to your New Years resolution.
New Year’s Resolution Solution – Here is Your Plan
It is January of the new year, millions of people, almost 40% of Americans, set New Years resolutions. Some statistics state that about 38% of those resolutions are to lose weight. But, very unfortunately, only a very small percentage of people actually achieve their New Years resolutions. There are reasons for this dismal fact. One of those reasons is that for people to lose weight, they need a plan. I HAVE YOUR PLAN! Here is your New Year’s resolution solution! It is written out in my day-by-day detailed program Full Body 30 Day Vegan Cleanse.

Going Through the Holidays Healthy
I love the holiday season! I love that we get to spend more time with friends and family. I love how people are in really happy
Of course, with this time of year, food and drink are a big part of almost every celebration you will attend.
It is very possible to stay healthy through this time of year. One of the best things you can do to help yourself is drink a lot of water. I usually tell my patients to drink 3 liters of water/day. It’s a great goal going into the new year. When the weather gets colder and people contract bacterial and viral infections, these are the infections that so easily spread through an office or a family. If you can increase your water intake to 3 liters a day, it will make a very big difference. When you are drinking a lot of water, it continues to flush out your mucous membranes. So, your sinuses, and throat and even your lungs benefit by all that water by making it harder place for bacteria and viruses to live. If your mucous membranes don’t get flushed as much and your diet causes a sticky film to coat them then it is a much easier place for organisms to cling to and breed. And make you sick.
You can go through the holidays healthy by making the right choices in taking care of yourself. Full Body 30 Day Vegan Cleanse can help you to make those right choices.
