If it’s true that you are what you eat, how many of us out there want to be a donut? Seriously.
Loaded down with fats and sugars, this round mound of deep-fried deliciousness, while making most mouths water, can make waistlines and hearts explode.
That maybe little melodramatic, but it is true enough for people who continuously eat unhealthy food. It’s just the antithesis of what our bodies are meant to handle.
The Gist of All-Natural Ingredients
Our bodies’ natural reaction to natural ingredients is a marriage made in heaven. When eating all-natural foods, you can expect:
- A healthier weight
- More energy levels
- Better sleep
- Regular bowel movements
- Fewer free radicals in the system, creating less risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc
- A better, more youthful appearance
- Better concentration and memory retention
- An overall more positive attitude about life
- And much, much more
Healthy ingredients, like fresh fruits and veggies, herbs and spices, and even some meats can enhance one’s health, strength, endurance, immunity and youthfulness.
All-natural ingredients are ingredients of the organic variety, and these are unprocessed, unrefined foods bereft of chemicals, any sort of enhancers, pesticides, hormones, or other add-ons.
Pound for pound, all-natural ingredients pack a more powerful punch in terms of nutrients and vitamins that your body craves. You will experience fewer side-effects with all-natural foods, both in the short and long-term, and your body is already adapted to handle these ingredients. Whereas, with processed sugars an overabundance can create a host of problems.
From caveman to supermarket
When we were first evolving as thinking humans, Homo sapiens, and even long before then, we were constantly on the move, looking to our survival, and eating to live rather than living to eat. There weren’t any fast food restaurants. You didn’t open up a bag of chips in front of the fire.
Our brains evolved to burn glucose as fuel. Throughout the evolution process, overeating was never safeguarded against. Meaning, simply, excess materials in our body and bloodstream won’t simply pass through as waste or burn off as fuel. They’re stored as fat and as sugar in the blood and are potentially dangerous.
Our bodies evolved eating natural ingredients. To receive the best health benefits from food as you possibly can, all-natural is what your body wants.
Food products by law have to tell you which ingredients it uses. The general rule is that items that have more than 6 ingredients, contain more artificial flavors, chemicals and perhaps even fats than you want.
An all-natural diet is exactly what your body wants. The health benefits will be noticeable almost immediately.
