When it comes to the basic facts of good nutrition, many people already know what they should aim for. There isn’t some secret about eating healthy that is hidden from the general public. The facts are all out there are ready for you to implement to turn yourself into a healthier you, which is always good! Even though the availability of nutritional information is at an all time high, our country still deals with high rates of obesity and other health problems related to bad nutrition. One of the huge problems is processed foods.
Processed foods are said to be more convenient that whole and raw foods. However, they are more full of harmful preservatives, usually higher in fat or simple carbohydrates, and lack the essential micro nutrients that whole foods have. Full of ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated fat oils, preservatives known to cause cancer, and many other harmful ingredients, processed foods lack everything that you want in a healthy food. To top it off, they aren’t even as convenient as something like fruit. You can just start eating fruit while you have to open a box and open a bag to get to the processed foods. For something so convenient, there are many other things more convenient (and healthier as well)!
That is basically the fact of nutrition right there. If you eat more raw and more whole foods, you are going to be healthier than somebody who lives on processed foods. The fact is here for everybody, so instead of reading this while eating a bag of tortilla chips, make the change to get healthy! Your body will thank you in the long run!
