1. All Calories Count: Sounds simple but all calories do count when it comes weight control. With the avalanche of food advertising we see everyday is it any wonder that we're on the verge of a national weight related crisis. With all of the fast food temptations to the ready to eat snack foods, controlling ones calorie intake is critical to maintaining a body weight that is in a normal range. Big Big money is at work with today's marketing, take a good look at the nutritional value of most of the foods that you see advertised many times every day.
2. Quality matters: The nutritional Quality of the food we eat matters! If we eat food that is nutritionally poor our bodies will "crave" more food to get the nutrients it needs to build and repair cellular damage that happens as a result of our daily body functions as well as oxidation that occurs naturally within the cells of the body. With the wholesale use of chemicals in today's modern farming practices, the nutritional quality of the food we all eat everyday has gotten worse and worse. The land that crops are grown on becomes depleted of the nutrients necessary to support life and so do the crops that come from stressed land.
3. Fresh is best! Foods that are not processed but are fresh and whole are the most nutrient dense and are a better source for nutrients. If your daily diet consists largely of foods that are fresh like fruits and vegetables, your more likely to be in the normal weight range for your height, and have a lower over all cholesterol level, a reduced risk of heart disease and diabetes.
4. Proper nutritional supplementation is critical to long term health. Providing your body with the nutritional support it needs to repair cellular damage caused by normal bodily functions and exposure to environmental contamination is critical for long term health. Getting enough vitamins, minerals and nutrients is just as important to your well being as getting enough sleep is. If you don't get the nutrition your body needs it begins to break down on a cellular level. Not being able to repair damage your cells weaken and then become damaged to the point where the cell breaks down completely thus aging you much faster than it needs to be. Because of the nutrient poor foods most of us are eating, a broad spectrum vitamin/mineral supplement needs to be a part of your daily nutritional program.
To get your weight under control, eat fresh foods when ever possible, Keep your daily calories under control and get on a nutritional supplementation program that will fortify your body and help reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke.
