Living healthy is the dream of every person in this world, and regarding eating healthy, there is one question that should be answered: why is it important to eat healthy?
There are lots of aspect of life that one should consider before they can say to themselves: “I am a healthy person.” Those aspects might include what are the things that one do, what are the things that one says, and what are the things that one eats.
Although eating might sound so basic of a need, the fact that it is very basic is what makes it important.
Your health is not judged by how you fulfil your secondary or tertiary needs, but it is judged on how you fulfil your primary needs.
Any person will never judge your health condition by looking at the clothes you have worn or the houses you have.
Any person will always judge your health condition by looking at what you do and what you eat. Doctors will never say ‘do you have Gucci clothes? You do not have them? Well then you are not healthy!’, which is an absurd thing to say.
Instead of that, to judge whether you are healthy or not, doctors will ask about whether your have exercised or not and what type of foods do you eat.
Lifestyle is important, but food is not less important than that
Although achieving a healthy life can be done through regular exercises, I always liked the old saying that says: you are what you eat. This might sound so symbolic and metaphoric for some people, but I always took it at face value. If you eat healthy food, you will be healthy. If you eat junk food, you will be a junk (not literally, but you catch my meaning).
Can you elaborate further upon your saying? Why is it important to eat healthy?
There are lots of health benefits you can get by eating healthy. While regular exercises and some sort of movement from your body can do good for your body, nothing is worse than letting junk foods enter your system on a daily basis.
Here are the health benefits that you can get if you choose to eat healthy:
You will control your weight gain and weight loss
Eating healthy does not mean eating to lose weight. Eating healthy means that you keep your body weight on check. Being too fat or being too skinny is never a good thing for someone, that is why by eating healthy you will keep your weight controlled.
Sure you can use it as a means to lose weight, but do not force your body to lose weight that it does not have okay? It will only lead to diseases and other whatnots.
You will have a better mood
One friend of mine said that eating healthy brings a neural reaction that will keep your mood good. While this statement has not basis whatsoever, I do believe that eating healthy food will make you tell yourself that you will be healthy and that you will live a longer life. It is a suggestion that will make anybody live in a good mood.
You will be safe from many diseases
There are lots of diseases that will come from eating unhealthy food. Although your whole body will be affected by unhealthy food, your heart and your digestion will be a prime target for unhealthy foods. Heart attack and diabetes will be common occurrences if you decide not to be healthy.
Go eat healthy before the diseases got you, yes?
Those are the things that I think are the answer to why is it important to stay healthy, so I hope your question are answered.
