10 Reasons Why You Should Eat Real Food

 

Real food will always be the ingredient; this is why there is no need for any ingredients list because you know what you are getting it’s fresh and whole. It’s very much unprocessed and is free of any sort of lab additives and instead is packed with pure nutrients.

 

Great this would be the end of the post… Unfortunately unlike thousands of years ago Fast food Fast Junk  has become a thing, & it’s being manipulated and sold to you by big companies as actually food that’s good for you.. or won’t kill you!

 

The reason why it has become a thing is the age old argument; “It’s more convenient” to which I add, “if you’re feeling suicidal”. The question I’ll ask you is, has this type of eating made you healthier or happier? Look around you at current world events and answer the same question.

 

Switching from junk to real food will be the best thing you can do for your health thus far, maintaining this will lead to great health and higher quality of life.

With so many suffering illness/ injuries and dying because of junk related causes, I feel it’s only right to share with you…

 

The 10 reasons to eat real food below.

 

Real Food Is Packed With Pure Nutrients- When you are eating something that is unprocessed animal or plant based foods it will have the vitamins and minerals you need for great health.

For example take Broccoli, it contains Vitamins= A, B1, B2, B6 & C or Chicken breast which contains Vitamins = B1, B2, B12, A, E, K & D.

There are so many more I could mention, but basically all real food  will have more than one Vitamin, mineral or some other  beneficial nutrient in it (Click Here)  

I would also like to point out that there’s no chance of you overdosing from real unprocessed food… which cannot be said for these supplements AKA Dielements that those big companies who don’t give a damn about your health and underpaid / can’t be bothered doctors are telling you to take.

 

 

Real Food Is Good For The Heart- Real food does not equal heart failure nor heartbreak, just packed with antioxidants and nutrients that support your heart health… not end it.

Example of this would be healthy fats or Magnesium (Click Here) When you eat real food it reduces inflammation, which is known to be one of the key reasons for heart diseases in the first place.

 

 

Real Food Is High In Healthy Fats- No I’m not talking about processed fats found in vegetable oils (Click Here), I’m talking about  natural fats which are not harmful at all and are  incredibly healthy for you (Click Here).

Here’s assuming you clicked on (Click Here). To add to that coconut oil is really good for you also and has been shown to increase weight loss. Also fatty fish such as salmon, sardines and herring are fantastic sources of  healthy fats.

DID YOU KNOW?: Nuts & Seeds, Avocados & Whole Milk are high in healthy fats also.

 

Real Food Is Music To A Diabetics Ears –  Types 1 or 2 it really does not matter eating  foods high in plant and unprocessed animal materials will help reduce blood sugar levels in your body and in anyone else who’s eating badly and is probably just one mouthful away from Type 2 diabetes.

DID YOU KNOW ?: More 300 million people have diabetes worldwide. That number is expected to surpass well over 600 million within the next 25 years!

 

 

Real Food Is Low In Sugar- As you may know already eating sugary  junk can  will increase the risk of obesity, which will lead to type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease and heart disease.

Real food for the most part is generally low in sugar and isn’t very sweet. Yeah even though fruit contains sugar (Click Here), it’s also high in water & fibre which makes it less concentrated and is not added sugar put in by man… or woman which sends the sugar levels soaring to illness and then death such as sodas or processed foods would.

 

 

Real Food Is High In Fibre- Fibre has so many health benefits (Click Here). This includes helping you feel more full yet with fewer calories, and also helps your digestive system function better/ overall metabolic health.

Foods such Avocados, flax seeds as well as beans & legumes are all high in healthy fibre.  Real food is the way of getting your source of fibre, not taking supplements for it  will cost you in the end… not talking money….

 

 

 

 

The Variety Of Real Food- Eating the same foods over and over again can get really old… fast. It’s also healthier to include many different foods in your daily meals.

There seems to be a myth with healthy eating that it’s only dry salads and seeds to eat  etc, and that couldn’t be further from the truth.

There are hundreds of different real food options… just take a look at my meal plan (Click Here) including a wide variety of fish, meat, dairy, fruit & veg, nuts, legumes, whole grains and seeds.

Make a real statement by regularly eating foods you’ve never eaten before or don’t regularly eat, it may be a food that you’ve always wondered about but never eaten (That picture up top is Kangaroo meat).

In doing this you’ll not only grow as a person, if you end up enjoying it you’d have expanded your options which = less of the same meals over and over again…

 

 

 

 

Real Food Cost Less… Long Term- It always astounds me when people say that they do not eat healthy because it’s too expensive. I mean you’re  right the junk is cheaper… it did come from the trash.

Where you lose is the fact that whilst you keep an extra $1.56 in your pocket in the short term (That’s some pettiness right there) in the long run the cost will be even higher for you because you decided to buy  cheaply and poorly.

What I am referring to is you’re having to deal with chronic lifestyle diseases which came from your decision to be cheap, petty & in a false delusion that you got one over on the supermarket.

Obesity, Heart disease & Diabetes are no joke, especially if you are living in a place where you have to pay medical bills or in place where the doctors and nurses are just understaffed and you’re on a long waiting list, if at all!

So the question is  So What… yeah you may have to pay that extra bit more to eat food  but that’s surely better than eating junk? (Junk is not food remember)  and surely it’s better to be in good health than to be suffering from chronic diseases. (Click Here)

DID YOU KNOW?: You’ve got to be eating these foods to improve your health (Click Here)

 

 

Real Food Makes You Happier- It’s only natural when you know you are making the right healthy moves for yourself, or even helping  your family or friends… it makes you that much happier. For all those that have stress before bed (Click Here)  you will rest easier knowing that you did good, plus your body will feel better and you will just know and feel the effects of eating healthy. It’s one of those things where you have to be doing it to know about it, no old tales of how I used to will suffice… it will only leave you depressed and digging deeper into the trash for more  Junk to eat.

 

 

Real Food Is… Real Delicious- This goes without saying, when you eat real food it tastes real good. All of the flavours & textures, the freshness,the smell just can’t be beaten… unprocessed food is undeniable delicious.

All it takes is some rewiring from how you’ve been blindly eating beforehand… just because mostly everyone else around you has being doing it. So you’ve been following suit, or you simply never really knew what you were missing. We as a society completely destroy anyone who we find has had plastic procedures, for not being “REAL”, yet we continue to fake eat and don’t follow up with the same ridicule… I see inconsistency, I see hypocrisy.

 

That’s It!

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys.  Please do let me know though…

What do you make of all this?

    I tend to eat the same thing several days only because I save money buying larger packages of meat and then I cook it and eat it until it’s gone. Like, I did 10 chicken thighs yesterday and so I’ll have 1 or 2 a meal with some veg for 2-3 days.
