You really Are What You Eat!
It is important to eat healthy food, especially since every seven years your body regenerate itself with the food that enters your mouth. You an either be made out of greasy fast food or a variety of healthy foods such as avocados, leafy greens and a fresh fruit salad.
Knowing what is healthy to eat and not healthy is important. For instance, fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grans and lean meats you prepare yourself in healthy ways will be lower in fat and higher in nutrition than fast foods.

How to Stop Stuffing Your Face with Fast Food
Instead of taking the easy and unhealthy route by stuffing your face with fast food, keep healthy snacks with you so you don’t get so hungry you don’t care what goes into your body. If you are a fast food junkie, you need to take a break from it for long enough to allow your taste buds and little voices in your head to return to their natural state.

By stopping cold turkey with fast food, you will likely feel a few days of withdrawal. You can lessen the pain by starting a new feeding plan with healthy foods. Before you know it, your new palette will appreciate the scrumptious taste of real food and you will not be so tempted by the disgusting fatty, greasy, high glycemic, high calorie, gut busting, extra salty, vitamin and nutrient-free, additive-rich, over-sized gluttonous portions of obesity producing fast food-like meals.
It’s your choice! The ball is in your court!
Think FOOD, Eat less
Some of our smartest scientists at Carnegie Mellon University discovered that continuous thinking about eating a particular food, such as candy or cheese, resulted in the study dieters to eat less of those foods they craved when it was offered to them.
This goes along with the already well-known idea that thinking about a food can make your mouth water. These savvy researchers extended this idea to find that you can also think your way into being satisfied without actually eating the food.
The study used M&Ms and cheese cubes and learned that imagining eating a lot of a food caused the mind to subconsciously restrict how much of that food the dieters actually later ate.
In a nutshell, the study conclusion found that people who imagined eating more food ate less of that same food when it was set before them later on.
Vegans are Everywhere!
Did you know that former President Bill Clinton lost 24 pounds for his daughter Chelsea’s recent wedding, and he became a vegetarian to do it. Although he eats fish once in a while, he now eats what the vegans eat just to eat healthy, not lose weight.
Food Without a Face Please
Vegans exclude flesh, fish, fowl, dairy products (including animal milk, butter, cheese, and yogurt), eggs, honey, and animal gelatin, as well as anything else of animal origin – or as some people say, “No food with a face.”
Why Veganize Your Eating
- Lower levels of saturated fat and cholesterol
- Added fiber
- Reduced risk of obesity or high blood pressure
- Lower levels of bad cholesterol
- More fruits and vegetables
- Lower levels of environmental toxins
What Vegans Often Lack
- Vitamin B12: This vitamin is found exclusively in animal products. Vitamin-B12-fortified yeast can be a good B12 supplement for vegans, soy and certain breakfast cereals fortified with B12.
- Iron: Since many vegetarian sources of iron are not readily absorbed, vegans might also need iron supplements or iron-fortified vegan products.
- Vitamin D: Only a few foods are good sources of vitamin D–fatty fish and dairy products, mainly–so supplements are often recommended.
- Calcium: Found primarily in dairy products, but also in vegetarian foods such as spinach and kale.
- Protein: Vegans need to add proper sources of vegetable protein in proper amounts. Some ideas: 1/2 cup beans; 1/2 cup tofu; 8 oz. soy milk; 1/2 cup edamame; and veggie burgers (protein varies here). Around 60 grams of protein per day should suffice.
