The Importance of Your Diet

Everyone knows having a healthy body, in general, is good for you so it should come as no surprise that having a healthy diet is one of the keys to maintaining your overall health and preventing sickness.


A healthy diet is one of the most important aspects of our overall health.

But why is a healthy diet important?


Switching to a healthier diet has many benefits and is key to reducing your likelihood to develop many chronic conditions later in life. It also boosts your general health and immune system, along with improving mood and reducing the likelihood of developing depression and other mental disorders.

So how do I know what diet is best for me?


There is no one-size-fits-all approach to finding the proper diet. Everyone is different and to find the best diet, you should talk to your doctor and a nutritionist to evaluate your current health and any potential health risks you may have to create the best diet for you. After talking to your doctor you may want to do some research online or check out some of our other blogs on topics such as the Keto Diet or the Blood Type Diet.

Find a diet that incorporates your specific health needs.

Studies show a healthier diet can prevent the development of chronic diseases.

Chronic conditions that may be prevented by a healthy diet include:

  • Heart Diseases

  • Some Cancers

  • Diabetes

  • Obesity


Here's a great video "A healthy diet, a healthier world" by the World Health Organization


But how do I maintain a healthy gut?


Maintaining a healthy diet takes effort and consistency. At the end of the day, your diet should not be dependent on you starving yourself or purposefully getting a deficit of the calories your body needs to survive. It's best to talk to your doctor about what eating habits work best with any conditions you currently have or any health goals you are aiming for.

Personally


I eat a high fiber, mostly plant-based 🌱 diet, no red meat, drink 4 liters of water a day, exercise, and am focused on keeping nutrition simple. I am sharing what works for me and what I routinely recommend to my patients.


"Balance. Portion control. Keep nutrition simple. Eat Smart. Eat Healthy. 🌱 🌾 🌿"
