Food can have an enormous power over us. We can either become addicted to certain foods, we might use food as a stimuli; for example we might turn to food when we’re bored, when we’re sad, when we’re stressed OR food can have a positive impact on our health and help to prevent chronic diseases. Either way you choose. You choose what foods to put on your plate. It’s entirely up to you.
Although one shouldn’t become a food fanatic one should become more aware of the great impact food have on our physical and mental health. ”The father of modern medicine Hippocrates believed that illness stemmed from inadequate nutrition and bad eating habits and that if people were to learn good eating habits then optimum health would be restored.” www.superchargedfood.com
Awareness is key. And the importance of making better choices. Healthier choices. No one is perfect, and of course one is entitled to indulge every now and then. However, you should always bare in mind that eating healthy is a form of self-respect. You can’t control everything in your life, but you can control what you put into your body.
