We’ve all heard the old saying ‘you are what you eat’, but have you ever stopped to really think about how true that statement is?
Let's face facts; when we eat healthy we FEEL better. It truly is the key to our well-being.
We all have up to 100 trillion cells in our bodies. Every single one is demanding a constant supply of nutrients in order to function.
Food affects all of these cells, therefore, it affects every aspect of our being.
Our mood, energy levels, food cravings, cognitive function, sex drive, sleeping habits and over-all general health and well-being.
If you feed your body mostly a diet of junk and processed foods it’ll simply store fat, lower your energy levels, and it will even compromise your brain power.
Nobody ain't got time for that!
Some amazing facts!
A 2011 study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that even mild dehydration in men reduced vigilance and memory and increased tension, anxiety, and fatigue.
Put Down The FRIES!
A 2009 Cambridge University study found that high-fat diets made laboratory rats not just slower but dumber.
Sugar = Bad...M'Kay?
A recent UCLA study found that a diet high in fructose slows the brain, hampering memory and learning. Omega-3 fatty acids--found in salmon, walnuts, and flax-seed--can counteract the disruption.
