Why should you Include these 10 PERFECT antioxidant rich FOODS in your diet?
Well, one of the key reasons to include antioxidant rich foods would be to try and keep cancer at bay.
A good portion of the American public uses the emergency room as their physician. This not only drives up the cost of health care, but goes against the whole idea of Prevention. I am going to provide you with a list of the top 10 healthy foods – that are antioxidant rich
– to include in your diet.
Each of these foods contain phytochemicals : protective plant chemicals that are known for their roles in maintaining a cancer free life.
Let’s get a jump start on your New Years Goals:
Approximately 40% of the American population make New Years goals and resolutions to eat healthier and/or lose weight. Unfortunately between 50% and 80% don’t honor and keep their resolution or meet their goal.
I believe one of the reasons is the stress we put on ourselves when we say we’re on a diet. So I say throw the word diet out the window and for 2011, let’s create a set of New Years Goals around a “NON-DIET!”.
Let’s look at changes you can make today while still feeling exciting and motivated.
You can begin by just following these 7 “New Years Goals” quick tips, and reduce the stress associated with healthy eating so you can achieve your New Years Goals.
“New Years Goals” Tip 1: Eat small meals/snacks throughout the day.
Plan on eating every 3 -4 hours. Eating this way fuels your metabolism and helps prevent blood sugar crashes and the binges that ensue.
If you eat only 2 meals a day it slows your metabolism down. Your body reacts as if it’s in “starvation mode,” so it stores the food you eat as fat. I had one client who I had to encourage to eat more so she could start losing weight!
This is the reason you are not hungry when you skip breakfast – your metabolism hasn’t been “kicked into gear.”
“New Years Goals” Tip 2: Combine protein and fiber at every meal/snack.
