5 Cliches About Healthy Living You Should AVOID in 2018!
Hello, these are just some cliches about healthy living people are coming up with and I feel you should look out for and AVOID them for the better of your body!
Raw water! It’s expensive it has to be great quality! NOT always!
Although the label, “raw water,” may sound healthy, in reality it is far more complicated than such accusations.
They say that this “raw water,” from Oregon, is from a pristined time when the earth was roughly calculated to have evolved below the surface for up to 10,000 years before surfacing.
They claim the water contains essential electrolytes and probiotics with “super high levels of natural silica.”
Experts say untreated water may contain more minerals, but also harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites.
In my opinion I wouldn’t worry on wasting money on “expensive” water that has no viable benefits or proof of benefits when there is water all over let alone more benefits than any other water!
Drink water, stay hydrated!
Fat-free only diet! Everything fat-free!
In the ‘90s, a lot of America avoided dietary fat, believing that a diet with a low fat intake prevented weight gain heart disease and various cancers; beliefs that evolved to be false.
For majority of people, a healthy diet is moderate in fat intake; which should include roughly 20 to 35 percent of your daily caloric needs and come from nutrition sources! If you intake too little fat than it may cause a variety of issues which include: nutrient deficiencies, memory problems, skin issues, and even muscle fatigue!
While all these commercially produced and packaged foods that are labeled fat-free may see healthier than their competitors many are truly not healthier!
In order for these companies to allow their product to be more shelf stable and have good taste is adding these extra sugars and unhealthy food additives!
Be careful not to remove fat completely from your diet, because it is vital for your body to have daily!
Cutting too many calories!
Usually the equation for weight loss requires a deficiency in calories meaning your body must burn more energy than you consume; energy also known as calories!
If you change your diet to a very low calorie strict diet which is under than what your body will need to function properly and be nutritiously stable; you will only hurt your body and send it into starvation mode!
When your body is triggered into starvation mode this affects your digestion system by slowing your metabolism down! You especially do not want this if you are trying to lose weight! You will do the complete opposite almost every time!
While your body is in starvation mode it will then start to conserve energy as much as possible. This may lead to nutrient deficiencies, bingeing, depression disorder, increased stress, and in deadly cases even organ issues!
Always make sure you are eating! Don’t starve yourself! There is information and help all over the place!
Take care of yourself and your body!
Cutting way too many carbs!
Crazy a lot of people are resorting to a low-carb diet or just cutting out most if not all carbs in their daily diet!
Yes it may be a wise and smart decision to choose a nutrient-dense food over a candy or candy bar.
However, you should not reduce all your intake of carbs!
Especially since carbohydrates are the main source of energy for the human body!
Carbs are energy!
If anything start watching what type of carbs you intake such as making sure to consume complex carbohydrates such as: sweet potato, squash, legumes, oatmeal, flaxseed and even berries because they are nutrient-dense, fiber-rich and they also help evolve optimal brain and body function!
Intaking way too much protein!
Protein’s main priority role is meant for muscle building.
Through protein we consume amino acids, which are the building blocks of muscle tissue.
A lot of people will say you can eat a lot of protein without any bad side-effects but they are wrong!
Sometimes you may be able to lose weight on a temporary basis through a high protein diet; However, high-protein diets through studies have been shown to cause kidney disease, kidney stones, osteoporosis and even forms of cancer!
If you excessively consume protein you can cause weight gain while leaving very little space in your diet for any other healthy food such as: whole grain, fruits and even vegetables!
Any excess protein your body consumes that it cannot process will then be stored as fat!
So be careful when it comes to protein, because although it may be awesome and taste great to some!
It isn’t about taste or your want, but instead it is for what your body needs and strives for!
Balance is key!
As the regulations of health standards revolve around 25% grain, 25% protein, 25% fruits, 25% vegetables and a glass of dairy product is a pretty simple variety of food sources for our body to need!
So it is always great to have a variety of food to eat and to not strict yourself to just one type of food source because you will be most likely missing out on very vital nutrients, minerals and energy your body simply needs!
