We need to get to a point where everyone reads ingredient labels and we will only buy those foods with labels that can be understood and every item in such label is an actual food item and the food comes from either the US or a country with rigid quality of food control.
Our great grandparents did not have a workout program, or a nutritional guide. They worked hard physically and ate “good real food.” Today a great number of our foods are compromised and do more damage than good to our bodies. Now the world is attempting to go back to the times where additives and preservatives were “junk’ not to be mixed with food. We need to get to a point where everyone reads labels and we will only buy those foods with labels that can be understood and every item in such label is an actual food item. Additionally everyone should be aware of the point of origin of your foods, which is stated on the package by law.
Make sure to consume complex carbohydrates instead of simple carbohydrates. Sugars, such as fructose, sucrose, and lactose – which come from fruits, table sugar, and dairy products, respectively – are simple carbohydrates. Your body converts them into glucose easily and quickly, which can lead to fat creation. Starches and wholegrain foods are complex carbohydrates because they consist of many sugar units bound together and take longer to convert. Typical starch sources include vegetables, grains, and legumes.

Women should consume no more than 100 calories of added sugars per day, and men no more than 150, according to the American Heart Association. Consuming too many added sugars or more than the necessary amount of starches and other carbohydrates may contribute to weight gain.
Follow these simple steps to know what you should eat and how to control your body:
- Do not buy or eat anything unless you have read the ingredient label, know what it is composed of and the point of origin of the product you buy.
- Read all labels on foods you want to purchase.
- If you do not understand even one ingredient on a label, do not buy the product.
- Take a dictionary with you to the market so you can understand some of the complicated words that are used for additives, sugars, preservatives, and dyes. Or maybe you have a cell phone and you can ask Google.
- Stay away from any sugars, including cakes, candies, and homemade sweets baked with simple sugars and bleached flours.
- Women should consume no more than 100 calories of added sugars per day, and men no more than 150.
Eat to live, don’t live to eat…
- Complex carbohydrates should account for 40% to 60% of your total daily calorie intake.
- Make sure to intake complex carbohydrates instead of simple carbohydrates.
- Stay away from heavy stimulants.
- Learn to focus and relax.
- Stretch daily whether you think you needed or not.
- Give yourself 15 minutes a day to yourself somewhere where you can wind down.
- Fulfill your body’s needs; reject your mind’s deceptive cravings.
- Eat in restaurants you trust to have clean, natural organic food.
- Eat only salads or lean protein from restaurants when you are not sure of their foods.
- Stay away from sauces and creams.
- Eat to live, don’t live to eat – and know the difference.
- Research what vitamins are good supplements for what conditions or deficiencies you might experience and take them only when there’s a need. More is not better and always is not wise.
Many people eat garbage and believe that vitamins will keep them healthy.
