You Know Your Diet is Bad When …

No physical fitness regime will work if you have a bad diet.  Just what exactly is a bad diet?  This is an eating regime that may not exactly bebe supporting your weight loss or muscle building goals. It is one that is unhealthy, does not sustain physical exercise and that will eventually make you sick.

You know your diet is bad when you are eating nothing but foods that are high in fat, carbohydrates, salt and sugars and low in vitamins, minerals and fiber.Examples of these bad foods are white bread, doughnuts, potato chips, microwave dinners, fried foods, instant foods, cheese and meat.  A lot of take out food is not that great for you either. Stay away from the pizza with cheese in the crust and greasy, fatty Chinese food. People who are on bad diets also seem to eat on the run more than others. They are more prone to suddenly ordering sodium, calorie and fat laden pizzas and Chinese food for dinner.

You can also sabotage your diet and fitness plans by drinking the wrong things. . Did you know for instance that if you eliminated all colas and coffees from your diet that you could lose as much as fifteen pounds in a month?  The same thing would also happen if you cut out all coffee that has cream and sugar in it.

 

By contrast a person who has a good diet eats foods that are low in fat, high in fiber and rich in vitamins and minerals. DietToGo has examples of some good diets. You can get promo codes for DietToGo on a discount website like PromoCoder.com

Be sure to drink a LOTof water every day – at least eight cups.  Water keeps the system flushed and it is a natural diuretic. Water flushes toxins out of your system.  Herbal teas are healthier too. If you are not sure what to eat then take a look at the Mediterrean diet. These are the healthiest people in the world and the food is nutritious enough to support a fitness program for losing wieght or building muscle.  Eating more vegetables and fruits is definitely helpful as well.

 

 

If you are constantly on the run then really try to pack your lunch rather than go out for it. Prepare for eating the night before. Not only does this save money but studies show that people who do this are a lot healthier and are better able to resist the temptation of junk food.

Holistic Fitness

Holistic fitness is about treating the “the whole” person. The fitness and diet programs should include strategies that heal the entirety of the human. This includes the physical body, mental body, emotional body soul, and spirit.

 

In holistic healing and fitness the intention is to discover the root cause of what causes illness. More often or not the problem is what the person is eating combined with a sedentary lifestyle, meaning that a lot of time is spent lying on the couch watching television.

 

All disease results from a failure of a cell to function.  Either the cell suffers from a deficiency of vital nutrients such as – vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, and phytonutrients from fresh foods or it degenerates  toxicity from exposure to the wrong foods and toxic environmental factors.

 

Eating overly acidic foods like refined and processed flour and sugar and dairy and meat can throw our body’s pH balance way out of balance. This can cause problems with every system in the body.

 

This acidity leads to toxicity and inflammation and eventually to break downs in the body’s systems.  Healing happens we address our lives and make changes to how we live.  We choose to eat foods and do things that do not promote the degeneration of our body. A primary philosophy I live and practice by is this, “How we feel and look is a result of how we live.”  Changing how we live can make us feel healthier.

Rather than changing our lifestyle most people choose to stagnate by treating problems with prescription drugs. This only makes their tissues more toxic than ever.

 

. These changes typically have to do with lifestyle – what we choose to eat, how we think and the stresses we have, our quality of sleep, how we exercise and move our body, and our attitudes toward our self and our life.

 

When it comes to cultivating healthy you must choose foods that y that nourish you and provide your cells with optimum nourishment.  You will stay fit, get proper sleep and discover ways to handle emotions and stresses.

 

Change will not happen unless you embrace the idea that you are going to have to address the entirety of your fitness situation to get results. In some cases this can mean consulting with naturopaths, spiritual healers and nutrition’s. Holistic healing is about healing every aspect of our existence. We are only complete when our body, mind, and heart are healed, conscious, connected, and whole again.
