What does a person need to be happy, carefree, vibrant, and long-living?
Of course, health. In Europe, retired people are only getting more active, now they have free time to travel, and they enjoy life in peace. And how can you enjoy it if your health is not the same at all? If the general condition is already so bad that you don’t want anything in life.
And in order for a person to stay healthy, he must fulfill the requirements of a correct lifestyle: there must be healthy food in the diet and physical activity every day.
In the world of constant stress, a person finds comfort and pleasure in delicious food, but it is not always truly tasty. Because of the numerous sweeteners and flavor enhancers added to all products, people have already forgotten what a simple but tasty food is.
All food that is created with the help of man, and not nature, can’t be useful. All kinds of chips, soda, crackers, instant noodles are generally difficult to call food.
During a bad mood, you always want to treat yourself with a sweet one. This is a natural desire, it has been with us since childhood because mother’s milk tastes sweet. But all those sweets that a person uses in adulthood cannot be compared with mother’s milk.
They contain such an amount of sugar that with a lack of physical activity, it will easily be deposited in fatty tissues. And obesity is a sure way to diabetes. It is astonishing that this disease is already common among children.
For an adequate healthy diet, a person needs to eat fruits, something dairy or meat, vegetables, and grain products.
Fruits and vegetables are sources of vitamins, and they are able to provide the intestines with normal peristalsis. Meat and dairy products are filling the body with proteins. And grain products are a good source of carbohydrates that will saturate you with energy.
It is important not to forget to drink water. Usually, a human being drinks two liters a day. It is preferable that the water is plain or bottled and unboiled. Drinking tea or soda will only add work to your body. After all, these drinks will still have to be turned into water by the digestive organs.
