Do you often feel without energy, not being able to focus, feeling drained – well maybe it is time to check what has been on your plate lately?
Nutrition is far more than eating your vegetables from time to time, reminding yourself to drink enough water, or skipping a cake when offered. It’s a state of mind. It is about giving fuels to your body, And not based on your current weight wishes or simple enjoyment.
But is that really enjoyment? For many of us – it is food that gives us no energy, leaves us tired, drained (not to mention bad skin, right?), depressed.
Did you know that anytime you are eating processed food and sugar, your immune system has to work hard and spend energy to protect your body against the poisons you are putting in yourself, and leaving little energy to protect you against illness.
Eating clean does much more than just benefiting your phusical being – it also does so much for you mental health.
Some of the nutrients from your diet — such as vitamin B-6, help make dopamine, a chemical involved in feelings of pleasure.
Omega-3 fatty acids also support good mental health, while if there is a lack of it can cause moodiness and depression. Limiting caffeine can also improve mental health — it can increase anxiety — and not skipping meals can avoid stress headaches or stomachaches.
This is a big bonus! When eating clean you are getting more vitamins, minerals, and hydration that starts to show up in your skin! When you eat healthier foods you consume more skin-loving healthy fats and antioxidants which results in beautiful, glowing skin. It also helps your skin stay strong and resilient.
