If this is you 👉, "I'm fit, I #eatclean & #workout, I don't need supplements." I TOTALLY get how one may feel this way! I sure used too!!
BUT here's what I've found as to why supplementation IS SO important! 👇🏻 🌱1. Current commercial #agriculturetechniques leave soil deficient in important #minerals, causing the food grown in this soil to share the same mineral deficiencies.
🍊2. Many foods are shipped long distances & are stored for long periods of time, both of which cause the depletion of #vitamins in these foods, including the important B-complex & C vitamins.
🌿3. Food processing, cooking, and preserving leads to #nutrientdepletion in our food supply that makes it difficult to obtain #adequatenutrition from foods alone.
🍎4. Many #fruitsandvegetables are genetically bred to improve visual appeal & crop yields, not nutritional value, which frequently results in lesser nutritional values than our ancestors’ food supply.
😁5. Erratic #eatinghabits , insufficient chewing of food, #eatingontherun , & #stress contribute to poor #digestion, making it difficult for our bodies to extract all the #nutrients it needs from food.
💊6. #pharmaceutical drug use has escalated over time. Most medications deplete essential nutrients, making people more vulnerable to deficiencies.
👶🏼7. Specific times in life & #healthconditions may result in higher needs of certain nutrients. For example, folic acid needs tend to be higher during #pregnancy , while #menopausal women may be vulnerable to calcium deficiencies.
💦8. Increasing levels of #environmentalpollution in our air, water & food may cause our bodies to use more nutrients than normal to #detoxify & eliminate #harmfulsubstances. This is especially true of the #antioxidant vitamins, some of which include: the “ACE Vitamins:” Vitamins A, C, & E.
💪🏼9. We all have #genetic weaknesses, including higher needs of some nutrients, higher rates of depletion for certain nutrients, & an increased likelihood of #geneticexpression of some illnesses if vitamin or #mineraldeficiencies are present.
👍🏻10. Many nutrients have been proven to aid in the improvement of MANY #healthconditions! #Googleit. Then #letshaveaconversation
My very first radish.
It smells and tastes like red cabbage (mild) and was slightly hot(peppery).
Definitely a new taste. I'll let the others go to seed so i can grow more. Definitely a success 👍.
FRUITS & VEGETABLES :
When preparing any fresh produce, begin with clean hands. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water before and after preparation.
* Cut away any damaged or bruised areas on fresh fruits and vegetables before preparing and/or eating. Throw away any produce that looks rotten.
* Wash all produce thoroughly under running water before preparing and/or eating, including produce grown at home or bought from a grocery store or farmers’ market. Washing fruits and vegetables with soap, detergent, or commercial produce wash is not recommended.
* Even if you do not plan to eat the skin, it is still important to wash produce first so dirt and bacteria are not transferred from the surface when peeling or cutting produce.
* Scrub firm produce, such as melons and cucumbers, with a clean produce brush.
* After washing, dry produce with a clean cloth towel or paper towel to further reduce bacteria that may be present on the surface.
My daily dose of whole foods nurtition on top of a balanced diet.
You know that fruits a vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet, right? But did you know that variety is as important as quantity?🍒 A diet rich in a variety of fruits and vegetables can lower blood pressure, reduce risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect on blood sugar which can help keep appetite in check.🍓🥝 It's best to eat a variety of types and colours of produce to give your body the mix of nutrients it needs to function. Try dark leafy greens, 🥑brightly coloured red,🍎 yellow 🍋and orange 🥕fruits and vegetables, as well as purples and pinks🍇🍆 If you're someone who struggles with getting enough variety of produce into you body on a daily basis, comment below or DM me to find out how I can help you flood your body with the necessary nutrients and whole foods!
Another 102 degree day 🔥 another smoothie bowl 🍨 It's the only way I can cope! Seriously, HOW is it this hot out right now? 🙈 I can handle it if I'm at the beach, but I'm at home doing school work, praying the A/C will keep up! 😅 Stay cool friends! 💗 #smoothiebowls
Regrann from @chadhargrove1 - Staying full while aiming to lose fat or get your weight under control comes down to a set of factors:
1. Sleep quality and duration (sorry new moms and dads)
2. Protein quantity
5. Stress management
When it comes to food though, you can make this VERY simple by thinking about calorie density.
Of course there’s a few exceptions, like avocados, but most foods that are both big but lower in calories tend to be high in water, fibre and/or protein.
What’s the lowest calorie dense substance you can put in your body?
Water. And a lot of the times you feel hungry, you’re just dehydrated.
But as this image shows, consider your choices vs the choices here.
This isn’t about healthy vs unhealthy, it’s about calorie density.
When it comes to food and staying full, VOLUME matters more than calories.
So when you have the apple instead of the muffin, you save about 320 calories for the same amount of satisfaction for your stomach.
When you choose mixed nuts as a protein source instead of a chicken breast — even though you should know nuts don’t have much protein — you give up a ton of protein, which is filling, and you add calories.
Just an example.
What’s next after water in terms of low calorie density? -
So when you a cup of dried fruit instead of something like a cup of broccoli, you add major calories for a similar amount of satisfaction to your stomach.
Nothing wrong with dried fruit, I’m just using these as examples because they’re swaps you may be making.
The difference in this post is 1000 calories. And that could make roughly a 1.5-2 pounds difference PER WEEK in weight loss.
The left side gets less cravings, more energy, and may even feel more full.
How bout that?
