Making healthier food choices is about more than just avoiding fatty and fried foods; it also helps to seek out raw, uncooked foods whenever possible. At least a third of everything you eat should be whole and uncooked. This makes your diet get many more nutrients than that of cooking. Focus on fresh fruits and vegetables. Packaged foods are required to include a nutritional facts section on the label. Learn how to read these facts, and stay away from foods with more than 5% of saturated fat, sodium or cholesterol. If you eat too much of these things, they will make you much more likely to face serious health problems in the future.
Fish is often considered to be a much healthier alternative to standard meats like beef, pork, and poultry. Fiber, which contains a lot omega 3 acids, is great for your cardiovascular and circulatory systems. There are many varieties of fish to eat; every one has a particular taste and texture. Try eating a lot of garlic everyday–600-900 mg is a good dosage. Garlic is a natural remedy that can help in the battle against heart disease and cancer. It also contains natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that can aid your organs. Garlic extracts should be a daily inclusion in your diet.
Balancing your diet means remembering to balance cooked and uncooked foods as well. The raw foods you eat should equal at least a third of your total food consumption. Eating enough uncooked food is necessary because the cooking process destroys certain nutrients that are essential to the functioning of the human body. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables to make this happen.
