Getting healthy begins with a change of thinking
Health isn’t a big step for many people, it’s merely a change of thinking to adapt to a new way of living. What you eat is what you are, there has never been a more accurate saying in the world. If you eat garbage, garbage is metabolised and made into parts of your body. This assimilation of nutrients doesn’t stop with the physical.
Mental issues attributed to unhealthy life style choices are widely documented, and in fact one of the first pieces of advise mentally unstable people are given is to fix their diet to that of a cleaner, healthier one.
Picking a diet which is suitable for everlasting healthy change
Healthy changes start with what you eat. You’ve got to choose fuel which is going to give your body the nutrients it needs to survive, and you’ve got to get this step handled first, and right away. If you are eating big-macs and pizzas everyday, you are going to suffer at some point because of the lack of nutrients you are giving your body. You need vegetables for minerals and vitamins, fat for proper bodily function and protein to help in the development and reparation of muscle tissues.
Some diets are pegged at being the next diet magic pill, and are made to be the “best offer under the sun”. This is of course not the best way of going about achieving health. Supplements, fat burning pills and other shortcut diet products are not a healthy, nor effective solution for burning fat and getting healthy. There is really only one way of achieving the health and vitality you desire, and that’s to eat right and eat right consistently.
While many diets promise to cut out the bad foods that make you fat, most of them end up resulting in an incorrect intake of macro nutrients and ultimately leaves you worse off then when you started.
I’d like to introduce the paleo diet.

- Insidious fat accumulation
- Lose weight
- Joint pain
- Intestinal problems
- Crohn’s disease
- High blood pressure
