A heartbreaking headline crossed the screens recently.
“Teenager goes blind from years-long diet of french fries, potato chips and white bread!”
I am sorry!
Apparently the doctors and people around him said that he looked healthy and no visual factors indicated that he was in serious condition.
You Can’t Judge a person’s health by their appearance alone!
Behavior is another important way to understand the potential health consequences occurring within a body. The behavior of selectively avoiding anything fresh or colorful in an eating habit could lead to dire consequences, such as blindness!
I have seen people in larger bodies do amazing things in a fitness setting and my experiences in fitness have led me to believe that you can be healthy and fit in so many different shapes and sizes.
That being said, you can also be unhealthy and unfit in so many ways too. Therefore, we should all strive to attain regular consumption of fresh greens and also veggies of the colorful variety because doing so can possibly lead to healthy normal function in all systems of the body.
Essential nutrients may be essential to living, while non-essential nutrients may be essential to well-being.
Personally, I love the feeling after I eat the Red Chard vegetable leaves, for example. Lately, I have been placing a layer of pico de gallo sauerkraut on top of the boiled red chard and the taste is quite palatable.
One reason I love red chard is because it provides many of the benefits of beets without the sugars. The red antioxidant can be strongly present in the veins of the chard leaves (if rainbow chard, you get more variety of antioxidant). The nutrients found within the green leaves also help to promote healthy blood sugar so that my body has the incentive to keep overall fat-mass on the healthy side.
Key Takeaway: Blindness is Caused by a Junk Food Diet.
Seriously, eat your damn vegetables. I have to tell myself this over and over. Trust me, I don’t want to eat vegetables every day.
Unfortunately for me, I have been in settings where I have seen the consequences of poor eating and I have witnessed a quality of life that I never wish for anybody.
Food literally interacts with our DNA and genetic expression. This processed environment that we often ingest is too over-stimulating for our bodies to handle, and may be strongly related to obesity, heart disease, cancer and more.
You may be able to change your life with nutritionally motivated eating
I will have more articles about how to use food for disease prevention coming up. Of course, I am still very interested in using nutrition for keeping body fat at healthy levels so there will be more content related to that as well.
