Nutrition, Level 1, Weeks 5 & 6
- Eat a Salad a Day
- Decrease Processed & Sugary Foods
Looking for Greener Pastures
For the next two weeks, we are going to focus on eating more greens and less processed foods.
The more fruits and vegetables in our diets, the better everything will function in your body.
Fruits and vegetables are chock full of vitamins and minerals, antioxidants and fiber.
In the past I’ve talked about how if you can reduce your inflammation, the better off you will be. Antioxidants help to get rid of free radicals, which cause inflammation.
Fiber will keep the food passing through your colon so you can get rid of it quickly. The longer digested food sits in your colon, the more toxic it becomes because it literally decays the longer it sits in your gut, waiting to be eliminated.
The average American has on average 10 pounds of digested feces sitting their colon at any given time. Clear out your colon, and you’ll have less aches and pains, be less inflamed, and pass food without any issues.
The Easiest Way to Get Your Fair Share of Fruits and Veggies
An easy way to get fruits and vegetables into your diet is by eating a salad a day.
Right now don’t focus on how healthy the salad is. Try not to eat a salad with French fries and fried chicken on it, use some common sense. But you don’t have to have a dry salad without dressing.
Pushing Out Processed Foods
The next area of nutrition that we are going to take on is processed foods.
Processed food is all around us. These foods wreak havoc on our bodies and our health.
That is why I want all of you to start paying attention to the processed foods that we all eat.
Loaded with free radicals and artificial sweeteners, processed foods like potato chips, donuts and even lunchables promote inflammation all throughout the body.
Once we recognize them, then we can start decreasing them in our diets.
Food should be enjoyable, we all should keep that in mind.
Don’t eat less, eat smarter.
I hope you have a pain free day.
