Eating Whole Foods For a Healthier Lifestyle

Let’s face it, the standard American diet and lifestyle is unhealthy. We have the highest percentage of people who are overweight or obese in the world! Our eating habits are causing problems like heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure to skyrocket. Many people know that they are unhealthy but feel like they are helpless to change their lifestyles.

Fortunately, switching to a whole foods diet does not have to be an all or nothing proposition. It does not mean that you will only eat lettuce and swear off hamburger for the rest of your life. What it does mean is that you will be taking an active part in living a healthier lifestyle.

If you switch to eating a more whole foods diet here are a few of the benefits that you can expect to see:

A whole foods diet will help to clear up your hair and skin. Many people who eat more naturally are amazed at how much better their hair and skin feel. The chemicals that are in our processed food are absorbed into our skin and cause a wide variety of problems. Eating a whole foods diet that consists mainly of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and healthy sources of fat can greatly reduce or eliminate many of these issues. The nutrients found in fresh fruits and vegetables are exactly the ones that your body needs in order to have healthy skin and hair. People find that their skin clears up and their hair is healthier and stronger due to all of the nutrients that they are now taking in.

In addition to clearing up your skin and hair, eating a whole foods diet enables you to get the nutrients that your body needs. Most processed foods have to be fortified with lab created nutrients just so that they can be labeled as food. They have no nutritional value of their own! Fresh fruits and vegetables, on the other hand, are packed with essential vitamins and nutrients. Study after study has shown that eating a diet built around fresh fruits and vegetables is the best way to ensure that your body is getting what it needs to stay healthy.

As many people find out, eating a whole foods diet is an excellent way to lose weight. Getting rid of processed foods and eating more fruits and vegetables enables you to feel fuller while taking in fewer calories. In order to lose weight you need to burn off more calories than you take in, so eating naturally is an excellent way to do this. In addition, many people find that when they are eating whole foods they need to eat less to feel full. This is because the fiber and nutrients found in whole foods fill you up faster than the chemicals found in most processed foods.

Lastly, eating a whole foods diet will increase your energy level. Many people who eat the Standard American Diet feel tired and sluggish all of the time. Eating a whole foods diet will help you to feel energized instead, because it will ensure that your body is getting all of the nutrients that it needs without all of the chemicals that drag you down.
