Food plays a very important part in our lives. Not only is it crucial for survival, but understanding different types of diets and food can also help you lose weight, live longer and stay fit. Here’s a guide to good food for a better and healthier life.
You are what you eat. It’s true to the last word. Food is a life saver and the reason why we’re able to walk and talk. All of us know that, and yet, we do nothing to make sure our body gets enough of what it wants. We’re all great at dumping junk into our bellies, but if there’s a healthy dose of nourishment on our plates, most of us think twice before sniffing and prodding it, let alone eat it.
Inevitably, we’re just making things a lot worse for ourselves, and our life span. So are we doomed? Probably. But there are ways to pull back and add several turns into your clock of good health and longevity. All you need to do is give food a second thought. Especially the Japanese one.
Being healthy means a longer life which we all want anyways. Life is too precious to let even a silly second slip unnoticed. Health insurances are good and wise investments, but it’s better not to use it or compel to use it. The idea is simple. We need the best defense mechanism as always. There may be a big population boom in the world but isn’t exactly a radical statement to be proud of. The phenomenon has nothing to do with living longer and healthier. That is just a sheer number. As usual, all blame malnourishment, unhygienic living conditions, poverty and lack of education.
While many countries are dealing with all sorts of problems concerning health and wealth, the Japanese are enjoying longer life spans as they are healthier and happier besides being richer than most countries. This is not surprising though. Check your encyclopedia to get insights supporting these claims. They aren’t practicing voodoo, black magic and any sophisticated state-of–the-art technology that they are famous for. They haven’t got bionic hearts or super computers planted inside their heads as well.
It is one of the oldest of adages, the mother of all principles, simple and short. Eat right, get proper exercise and sleep well. Exercising is beneficial, so is sleeping, though all in moderation. What’s the big fuss about the food we eat? Why do we have to eat like the Japanese? That’s where we’d find the hitch. We’re not suggesting you alter your diet completely to access a whole new cuisine.
We can retain the better stuff we have, avoid the odd ones and adapt to a few more of their healthier practical diets. The Japanese brag of clocking in with the longest average life-spans on the planet. They have far lower rates of obesity and chronic diseases like osteoporosis, heart ailments and different types of cancer, when compared to most of the developed countries all over the world.
The food you eat and the lifestyle you lead can give a postulation of how long you will survive healthy and well. Our body is like a machine that needs fuel and servicing regularly, so that every part functions in the fullest capacity. Impurities added take its toll on the engine. It might not be obvious at first but it will surely show symptoms as time goes by, before a major break-down occurs.
Precautions and preventions are better than cure. We’re all aware of that, but do you really comply and abide? Generally we think about hitting the gym only when we’re carrying extra pounds around the waistline. You reach out for a mouth watering pack of potato chips or a huge cheese burger when you are hungry instead of nutritious food. Those are short-term solutions to ease your appetite. It won’t help in the longer run.
Nowadays our diet routine lacks in many departments. You need examples with proof to follow or imitate. Normally we get inspired to pick a few tips but drop it after a few days of trial, and everything falls back to the initial stages. Your schedules may seem hard to observe, but not once you understand how to add a Japanese touch to your food intake.
