Healthy eating should be a way of living
A large number of people will only eat healthy when they desire to lose a few pounds. Besides that a relatively low number of people will show any concern for a lifestyle of healthy living. That may be because weight loss is such a big business these days and according to statistics it has grown into a $60 billion industry per year which is a staggering amount of money. The fact remains that eating unhealthy foods is a very large contributor to why people are becoming obese. Unhealthy foods leads to unhealthy people and the cost of managing all the obese people in the country is coming very close to $200 billion a year. The point I’m trying to make is because of all this focus on a weight related issues not a lot is done to promote healthy eating for all people living on this planet. The truth is eating healthy does not only contribute to a trim and sexy body but it has a whole range of other benefits both physically and mentally.
Substantially increases your productivity
Over the last two or three decades a tremendous amount of research has been done into the eating habits of people and how those habits are impacting the lives and the productivity of entire populations. Now this is probably something which every person will be able to calculate for themselves and that is the fact that healthy people will be significantly more productive than people who are suffering from frequent illnesses which is often the result of eating the wrong foods. A startling discovery was the fact that regular exercises resulted in a substantially reduced loss of productivity and the results were even better when there was a regular consumption of healthy fruits and vegetables. This study has considered a whole range of factors and the final conclusion was that those people who are eating healthy on a consistent basis are significantly increasing the productivity of any business or Corporation and results of over 60% has been established. This is not merely the opinion of one dietitian but this was an excellently regulated research program that has considered a wide range of important factors.
Healthy eating improve your mood
There is a whole range of healthy nutrients in food that has been proven clinically to have a very positive impact on the mood of people. Many people who are trying to lose weight will avoid chocolate as much as possible but surprisingly in dark chocolate which has large quantities of cocoa polyphenols, this has been found to be a substance who can drastically improve the mood of a person. Naturally the intake of chocolate should be carefully managed because too much will lead to increase of weight. Fortunately this beneficial substance found in dark chocolate also occur naturally in several other food types and several of them could be purchased from your closest grocery store. It is especially those small types of fruit such as grapes, cherries, blueberries, currants and blackberries that has been found to contain very large volumes of polyphenols. This substance can also be found in black and green tea and also in Soya. Healthy eating is not something which is difficult to accomplish but with a little research and knowledge about the subject most people could become healthy eaters.
