Forget about diets: choose healthy food
Our modern lifestyle often leads to choose convenient food: pizzas, hamburgers or frozen food. We want to eat faster and more convenient, but such food is low in nutrients and high in salt, sugar and unsaturated fats. Such diet sooner or later leads to health problems and weight gain.
Meanwhile, fresh food made at home can give our body all necessary vitamins and minerals, and not only that. Recent research shows that we can program ourselves to eat healthy and that can help get rid of the addiction to fast food restaurants.
In order to feel healthy and look good, we do not need crazy diets, just choose what is fresh and eat as often as possible. Prepare your meals at home. If you are still unsure about nutritional benefits, here are four arguments that will convince you.
- More nutrients and vitamins.
When cooking using fresh ingredients, you will know what you eat and avoid all unnecessary additives and empty calories, which are really bad for your health and body shape. Choose the widest range of colors of vegetables and fruits, because then your body will receive all necessary anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals.
- Incitement to eat healthy.
Often, those who begin to cook at home say they don’t even want to eat fast food. The most recent study from Harvard seems to have an answer why. When you start eating healthy, your brain reacts much stronger to pictures of healthy foods and less to unhealthy food. By changing diet, it is likely that you will “reprogram” your brain to crave for healthy foods and snacks.
- overeating less often.
Studies with mice have shown that when overeating healthy foods, their brain have stop responding to it, thereby protecting them from overeating, while mice that were fed fast food did not stop eating it and gained weight.
- Less effort.
If at the moment the idea of eating healthy seems to be difficult to achieve, just start doing it. Studies show that such a diet will eventually become a regular habit and you will no longer need fast food or greasy pizza.
