“The goal is not to be better than the other man, but your previous self.” ~ The Dalai Lama
Happiness is a choice, even when it comes to food. We can’t stop eating for delicious food, yet we found ourselves guilty after satisfying our cravings. Sounds Familiar? Yes, we all did it! Eat what we crave! But always remember, NOT ALL DELICIOUS food was always healthy ones. Their advertise that we have seen everywhere are so mouth-watering food. They all look good.
Sometimes due to our very busy schedule, we just tent to prefer fast food rather than cooked once since they were available everywhere, near our office and even in our houses. We can just drop by and have our take-outs anytime we want. But those fast food were not always serving healthy food at all such as patty, soda and etc. This food contains additives, salt, fats, and other contents that were not healthy for us that will affect our health soon.
There are misconceptions about the word “diet”. Does really eating less means you’re on a diet? Maybe yes, maybe no. Let me blow your mind. Less eating foods can’t make you on a good diet like others think it is. You would know if you’re on the wrong track if it will compromise our health in the later part of our lives. Have you seen the difference? Food matters on how healthy we are eating and not with the volume and how delicious we partake.
We are all responsible for what we eat. We have a choice to eat wise but we also have a choice to be unwise.
Amidst this COVID pandemic we are in right now, let us all stay safe and eat HEALTHY!
According to research, the food that we intake in our bodies can pull the trigger of depression and anxiety. But we can get rid of such, if we only ensure our body with proper nutrients and exercise. Depression and anxiety can be genetic but it can also be acquired from the food we are partaking that will trigger those conditions. These are the reasons why we need to take care of our physical and mental health as well.
Healthy minds can achieve more than we can imagine. When the body is healthy, the mind can think positively and productively. This COVID pandemic not only affects the economy but also the physical and mental health of the individual as well.
As home quarantine is still going on, people cannot help to think about what food to eat meal after meal. But letting this happen all throughout during quarantine will lose one’s discipline to their fitness goals.
Less Carb Simply Won’t Work!
Fats and Carbs are controversial nowadays because of how it affects our body naturally. However, research has proven that protein is important to make our muscles and bones stronger, boost metabolism and at the same time fast burn fat. Almost everyone was so conscious of their diet, but we need to remember that enough protein will make us get rid of protein deficiency.
Less carb means less calories were not always true. People tend to be so cautious reading calorie labels at the back of the food package without even realizing that carb is what we need to start our day right!
The very essential intake that we need to have is enough carbs to make our bodies stronger and healthier. Instead of losing a big amount of carbs, why not try to increase the amount of protein, vegetables and fats intakes to make our body work fittingly.
Let’s reset our minds to be healthy while staying at home. Let’s rebuild our healthy habits again and work on our meal plan cautiously. Let’s all be FIT. COMMIT to it!
