6 Ways To Unlimited Health
Let’s face it… Who doesn’t want to wake up every morning with unlimited health and vitality to kick off their day with style?
However, it's super hard to perform at peak levels when you always feel tired and sick. Everyone succumbs to the occasional cold or stomach bug, but have you noticed the most successful people seem to be nearly invincible (like they never seem to get tired at all even though they have to manage 50 companies or perform 6 hours on stage)?
It's unbelievable but true. Successful people value themselves highly and invest in their own well-being FIRST. They enjoy life, and don't want illness or injury to disrupt their trajectory. With winter and the holidays ahead, there is no better time to be thinking about staying healthy. To keep you at your best, here are 6 simple habits that will help you stay healthy and enjoy your rise to the top.
1. Eating Right
Eating the right foods and the right amounts of foods can help you live a longer, healthier life. Research shows that many illnesses—such as diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure—can be prevented or controlled by simply eating right. Getting the nutrients you need, such as calcium and iron, and keeping your weight under control can help. Try to balance the calories you get from food with the calories you use through physical activity. Remember, it is never too late to start eating right.
Not just that, it is important to not skip breakfast. Research shows that children who skip breakfast generally have poorer nutrition. Their diets contain less:
- Dietary fibre
- Vitamins such as riboflavin and niacin.
Skipping breakfast becomes more common as children get older. Some schools have introduced breakfast programs because they were concerned about children who skip breakfast. Study shows that children generally perform better at school when they have breakfast. They are also more likely to maintain a healthy weight when they consume a healthy breakfast.
On the other hand, adults who eat a healthy breakfast are also more likely be a healthy weight and more productive at work. Breakfast is a way to kickstart your metabolism in the morning (A way to signal your body that it’s time to fire up!)
You need to get good nutrition from the calories you need. At all cost, avoid "empty" calories. So what exactly is it?
It basically means food or bevarages with calories not made up of basic macronutrients (Healthy Carbohydrates, Proteins and Fats). An excellent example of empty calories beverage is alcohol. They provide NO nutrients to your body but add on those unwanted calories that make you FAT!
Speaking of fat, also try to avoid food with lots of unhealthy fats or added sugars (or both!). These will seriously make you obese easily if consumed in large quantities.
Secret to lose weight: Opt for FILLING, low-calorie food; rather than sugary, fat-rich CALORIE-DENSE FOOD!
Here's an example: There are 2 foods on the table – One is a piece of carrot cake, and another is a bag of carrots. Both contain the SAME amount of calories.
If you eat a piece of carrot cake, you won't get very much to help your health (and most probably you even crave for MORE!). But let's say you eat the same number of calories in the form of carrots. In that case, you get the calories plus a whole bunch of great nutrients (and you’ll feel extremely full).
Keep in mind that most girls should aim to eat no more than 120 or 160 empty calories a day. How can you avoid empty calories? Try cutting back on sugary sodas, fruit drinks, ice cream, cookies, and cake.
