If your body was a machine that could print £50 notes at will, infinitum but required regular exercise, 8 hours sleep and a healthy diet, I am sure your thoughts and choices might change!
Try to shift your focus away from how you may look to how good can you feel. What does your body require to work at its optimum? You are what you eat!
Food is an important part of our lives, not only does it provide the energy and nutrition our body requires in order to function, it provides a social opportunity for us to gather with friends and share our time and thoughts. Food can also act as a supporting mechanism, how often have you reached for chocolate when you are feeling low, or craved a coffee when you are feeling tired? But can food be medicine? As we have seen, certain patterns of eating can lead us to poor health and in the most extreme cases, disease. It is sad to say that these patterns of eating are adopted by the majority in developed countries. Technology and creative thinking have created foods into something that are unrecognisable from their original form but taste delicious. These modified foods often contain the ‘Golden Trilogy’ of Fat, Sugar & Salt making consumers want to eat even more of them.
