Health: A Balance of Clean Eating and Exercise

When striving to achieve a fit body, it is often tempting to try to find a short cut. It is important to remember that what you eat is just as important as physical activity.

The Importance of Clean Eating

We've all heard the old adage: "You are what you eat." The foods that we ingest comprise the building blocks used to create our skin, hair, tissues, and muscles. It is vital that these ingredients are provided in their most natural state. Additives and chemicals will often work to disrupt integral processes. For example, it has been found that people who consume certain sodas are at a greater risk for bone disorders like osteoporosis.

You should opt for whole grains that have not had the bran removed, because bran aids digestion. Whole grains break down slowly, allowing for a slow release of energy that avoids spiking your blood sugar. Fruits, vegetables, lean cuts of red meat and fish, nuts, seeds, and limited dairy are all part of a balanced diet that is low in sodium, unprocessed, and easily accessible by your body.

Exercise

In order to realize your full potential, you need to move. It is crucial that you engage in activities that raise your heart rate for at least 150 minutes a week or 75 minutes if the workout is strenuous. Swimming, lifting weights, walking, running, yoga, and martial arts are all good options to get your body moving. If your schedule is packed, you can break your activity into fast-walking, jump-roping, hula-hooping, or jumping jack sessions whenever you have a couple of moments to spare.
