Let’s face it, today more than ever, health is a topic of concern. We take precautions to avoid exposure to others and to mitigate our risk of contracting coronavirus by wearing masks, social distancing, staying home and following guidelines and protocols when out in public.
We do this because we don’t want to get ourselves or others sick.
What is health? To have good health is to be free of illness or injury, to be able to adequately cope with the demands of life, and to maintain a state of equilibrium with yourself and your environment.
When we are in a state of good health our quality of life increases dramatically. We are able to utilize our bodies without pain, experience natural energy, and enjoy feelings like joy and happiness.
One of the factors that influences our health the most is diet. The foods that you eat make a measurable impact on the condition of your health. By eating healthy, wholesome and nutritious foods you give your body the building blocks it needs to fortify healthy cells and smooth bodily functions.
Just as important are the things that we avoid eating as part of our diet, refined sugars being the deadliest. Additives, processed ingredients, unhealthy fats, and unnatural sugars are problems for our bodies to flush out the best it can.
Too much of these harmful items result in extra weight, clogged arteries and decreased ability to regulate blood sugar.
Today I’d like you to draw the mental connection between your healthy eating and your good health. By sticking to a low-sugar, high-protein, high-fiber diet you will take measurable strides towards claiming better health.
This means having a stronger immune system that’s ready and able to fight off viruses.
So please add good health to your list of reasons for getting into great shape and instilling healthy eating habits to last you a lifetime.

Utilize HYDRATION for Fat Loss
Most people are chronically dehydrated which means that they are not drinking enough water throughout the day. There are 2 main reasons that not drinking enough water causes you to gain weight...
1. Thirst often feels like hunger - which leads to overeating
Most of the time when we think we are hungry, and find ourselves reaching for a snack, it’s actually due to thirst that’s simply disguising itself as hunger. This leads to regrettable food decisions throughout the day - and all of these undesirable calories add up and work against your body fat and energy levels.
2. Dehydration slows down body functions - including your metabolism
It's been reported that 75% of people suffer from Chronic Dehydration which leaves the body vulnerable to weight gain, illness, injury and further increases the risk of contracting any number of viruses.
The human body is made up of 11 important organ systems, including the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, excretory, nervous and endocrine systems -- they also include the immune, integumentary, skeletal, muscle and reproductive systems.
All the systems work together to maintain a healthy human body -- and all the systems rely on proper hydration to deliver vitamins, nutrients and minerals to stay healthy and recover quickly.
Food that’s untouched and unprocessed is always going to be the healthiest. See how many real, whole foods you can fit into your diet, while cutting out the packaged foods. You’ll be pleasantly surprised how quickly your body transforms when you eat food prepared the way nature intended.
