Your diet is defined by your lifestyle, and your lifestyle can be defined by your diet. You are what you eat, so think twice before eating that sizzling oily pork chop. What you eat is a major part of your life. Letting yourself indulge on sweet and calorie-rich diets will have dire consequences later on, so watching what you eat will help you live life to the fullest. Eating right means leaving all or most of your favorites behind, including pizzas, steaks, burgers, etc. An alternative is to eat less of those and eat more fruits and veggies.
Why fruits and veggies are important is a question everyone should ask him or herself. Your diet is a major part of your life, and eating fruits and vegetables can help you in many ways. Elimination is not truly necessary, but lessening and replacing can be a good alternative. Veggies will be a very healthy replacement for your meaty meals, and fruits can be the substitute for your sweet and sugary desserts.
Everyone should eat more fruits and veggies if they want healthier bodies. If you can help it, fruits and vegetables can be a good foundation for your diet. Imagine having vitamin and mineral-rich vegetables replace your high calorie meals and help you avoid excess calories that your body does not need. Fruits to replace your sugary desserts will help you receive the sugar your body needs without having to take excess amounts of sugar.
The reason why it is important to eat fruits and vegetables is that they can protect your health. These foods are rich in vitamins, fiber, phytochemicals and minerals. As your body is supplied by the necessary nutrients, it will be more tolerant and resistant to diseases like heart disease, increased blood pressure, diabetes, and certain types of cancers. Replacing your calorie-rich meals with fruits and veggies will also increase your chances of resisting the diseases that those types of diets will provide.
Fruits and veggies are good for weight management. We all know they are very low on calories but make you feel full. Their tastes are not very addictive, like pizzas and sweets, but thinking in a positive way means that you won't want to eat too much, even if you are already full. Exercise must always be a good partner for diet, so eating fruits and veggies is beneficial but coupling this practice with exercise is even better. Fruits are nature's natural sugar providers. Our bodies need sugar, so eliminating sugar from your diet will make you hypoglycemic (low blood sugar), thus natural sugars will be your healthiest bet. We tend to consume more refined sugars than we need, which result in fat and increased weight, so substituting your refined sugars with fruits will help your body regulate the intake of sugars and will help with losing weight.
Fruits and veggies are packed with energy. In fact, they will make you feel more energetic and healthier if they are consumed. Most fruits and vegetables trigger our bodies to produce hormones that are advantageous to our busy lives, like serotonin, which makes you happy during stressful activities.
