Are you someone trying to make healthier choices in life? Did you know “healthy eating” is the largest contributing factor towards a healthier lifestyle?
Here are 5 amazing benefits of healthy eating to inspire you to healthier lifestyle!
- Keeps you away from diseases
Many studies suggest that a healthy diet supports heart health, helps maintain blood sugar levels and reduces the risk of cancer. For instance, foods rich in dietary fibre like Jowar, Quinoa and Chickpeas lowers Lipoprotein (bad) Cholesterol levels which helps maintain a healthy heart. Foods rich in dietary fibres reduces insulin spikes in the blood helping control and improve type 2 diabetes.
- Good Food! Good Mood!
There is a close relationship between diet and mood. Nuts and seeds like Walnuts, Chia seeds and Flax seeds are rich in Omega -3 fatty acids (ALA,EPA and DHA) have proven to fight depression, anxiety and reduce mood swings. Similarly, whole grains such as Jowar& Oats rich in Vitamin B3is proven to boost energy levels and keep you in a happy mood!
- Illuminates your skin
“You are what you eat”. Studies suggest that certain power house foods rich in antioxidants like carotenoids, chlorogenic acid and Vitamin E found in Spinach, Pumpkin seeds, Almonds and Watermelon seeds can cleanse the skin, prevent acne and blemishes, repair skin cells, restore moisture and give you a beautiful younger looking skin!
- Meet your weight loss goals
If you’re looking to shed a few pounds, transform your body or wish to maintain your weight, then healthy eating is the key. Ask us why! Studies suggest that whether or not you’ll meet your weight loss goals depends 90% on what you eat! Consuming fresh vegetables and fruits, healthy fats(Walnuts, Cashews, Flax seeds and Sunflower seeds), lean protein (Chickpeas, Tofu and Eggs) and whole grains (Jowar, Ragi and Quinoa) lower calorie intake, increase satiety, balances hunger hormones and ultimately aids in weight loss and help you live a healthier life.
- Easy on your pocket
Consuming healthy food is more economical than one imagines. Buying whole grains, leafy greens, high protein pulses and cheese from your local market burns a smaller hole in the pocket vis a vis ordering in a fancy salad. And the health benefits accrued of healthy eating in the long runs provides respite from never ending medical bills.
Bottom line? of course you can delish the sweet indulgence of your favourite foods, but you need to learn to listen to your body, your soul and your mind and to keep it running fit and fine in the long haul, eating healthy is a big gamechanger!
