HEALTHY EATING: A CHEAP ALTERNATIVE?

Do you share the common belief that eating healthy is costly? If you do, you may be surprised to know that it is not. By eating healthy, you can—in reality—save some bucks while improving your health.   EAT LESS Although choices are available when dinning out, like portion size, menu choice, and price, opting to eat at home is not only a money-saving strategy but also healthy. Did you know that our stomachs are maxed-out with two handfuls of food? Think about that the next time you gorge yourself at a Swedish buffet. To prevent undigested food from sitting idle in our intestines, we should only eat when hungry and stop when satisfied. If we use the hunger scale 0-8, where 0 represents “total hunger” and 8 represents “completely stuffed,” you should begin your meal somewhere at level 3 and stop at level 6.   STOP SNACKING Eat three meals a day and nix the snacking bit (snack only if you need to; like if you’re diabetic or work long hours).

So, good health equals strong immunity. But what is immunity? Immunity is usually defined as a defence system that resists and fights viruses and infections that enter our body. However, it is more than just that. The immune system is designed to allow a human to live for at least 120 years—and not weaken after forty, fifty, or even sixty years of age. How is that possible?

Knowledge vs Motivation. You are what you eat.

Knowledge vs Motivation Which one do you think is stronger? Is it more important to have knowledge about how to do the things in the right way or the motivation to complete a task no matter the circumstances? Knowledge is around 5 times weaker than motivation. The passion and motivation will figure out the way! The problem is that the knowledge about how to do something does not necessarily motivate you to grab the bull by the horns and complete the task. Your attitude is the strongest indicator that there will be a the clear connection between your actions and results they lead to. Let’s take an example. Everybody knows that we are what we eat. We know that the food that we put in us has a tremendous impact on our bodies and our health. Even so,  people are still smoking, still drinking, still eating tons of hamburgers and “energetic garbage” (the things that gives energy but lacks nutrition). Only motivation and clear understanding of the causal link will lead us taking action towards …
