Optimal health takes time and patience; not many things in life change overnight, and altering habits is not one of them. Years of unhealthy patterns and auto-pilot decisions eventually lead to chronic ailments and diseases. Making choices in lifestyle and diet transition can be a daunting and time-consuming task, and without proper knowledge, even dangerous.
We can’t control our genetics, but we can control the way we nourish our bodies and mind. Eating a healthy diet — along with mental & physical exercise — is one of the most proactive choices available to reduce your risk of developing chronic health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
Research shows that maintaining a healthy weight goes hand-in-hand with a healthy diet. The U.S. Office of Disease Prevention and Health recommends eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and lean protein while limiting sodium, added sugars, and trans fats.
But does that give an idea of what to eat and stay healthy? Fad diets tell of ways to drop 10 pounds in 2-weeks, but how long does it stay off, and is it worth the emotional side effects and hunger pangs?
