Food is a necessity for every human being, without food we would not live for more then 150 hours. Water is among the healthiest food we can put into our systems.
Often there is a miss understanding about the food we eat and it seems that the ultra modern marketing campaigns from the food industry only make this misunderstanding stronger and stronger.
Does Food Have To Taste Nice?
Food does not have to be nice, shiny, tasty and good looking to be nutritious. There is no need to eat for our taste buds.
Often we eat our foods to fulfill two factors, please the taste buds in our watery mouths and fill the stomach to release the hunger feeling, but feeding these two needs is not even important for a nutritious meal. We need to eat for our cells.
The Body Cells
Everybody is made up out of trillions of cells. All these cells divided a few times per day. What needs to be optimum in everybody is cell division, the separation of one cell dividing itself into two cells and with this multiplying itself.
If a cell is unhealthy the division process will end up in a multitude of unhealthy cells. These unhealthy cells can cause cancers in the long run. Overeating of unhealthy foods will lead to unhealthy cells and with this to a multitude of chance to fall sick and become ill.
Eating for the cells is of utmost importance, and this could mean that the taste buds are not pleased every single moment of the day. Too many sugars, salts and trans-fats pass our lips, creating an abundance of body negative products and elements, whereas we should feed our body with an abundance of body positive products and elements.
Baseline we eat too many sugars, too many salts and too many carbohydrates. The sugars and the salts are easy to identify in our foods and a simple reduction of the amount eaten per day, per week or per month can quickly reduce the overall high intake of these elements.
What Are Carbohydrates?
Carbohydrates are sugars which don’t taste sweet. And this can be misleading but we have to learn to identify the carbohydrates in our foods.
Carbohydrates (sugars) turn into fat and will be stored into the body tissues for later use, often this storage takes place around the main muscle areas where it will be stored to feed the muscle when it is in need for building blocks or food during an exercise.
Where Do We Find Carbohydrates?
The most important carbohydrates, the abundance in our foods are found in our staple foods. Potatoes, rice, cookies, noodles, bread all these foods we like to eat in large quantities, but which will be harmful and will create an overload of fat mass in our bodies.
Reduce the amount of carbohydrates and replace them with proteins (vegetables, fruits, fish, white meat and protein shakes) and the body will respond rapidly, with more energy, less weight and more healthy active cells.
