We live in an age when doctors’ fees, hospital costs, and many medical treatments are incredibly expensive and disease statistics are off the charts. It makes pretty good sense to take preventative measures and protect yourself as much as you can from debilitating disease and premature death.
While building a head turning physique is great, maintaining good health should be priority number one. In fact, it is practically impossible to lose body fat and get in better shape if you health is poor.
The hard part is that good health, just like a better body, must be earned. And that means you will be required to put in a bit of hard work. But it is hard work that must be done, and everyday is an opportunity for you to express your appreciation of life by working hard to sustain a high level of well being.
Do you know of anything more worth working hard for than your own good health? I sure don’t. In this era of nutrition neglect, doctors are getting rich off of your failure to pay attention to your health. Due to this neglect, millions of people are overweight, and even more people consistently get sick each year with preventable disease.
While symptomatic relief may just be a few pills away, and usually within arms reach, covering up the symptoms with prescription medication is not going to restore your health. Preventable measures are your best course of action.
So are doctors to blame?
Now, I have nothing against doctors. In fact, my gastroenterologist practically saved my life about 10 years ago. I have nothing but respect and admiration for our hard working doctors out there. But the average doctor is not going to teach you much about nutrition, he is usually just going to follow his training and give you a treatment in the form of a shot or prescription. All this usually does is mask the underlying source of the problem
But the doctors are not completely at fault, you can’t even really blame them. That is what they are taught to do, and it usually works. But the standard medical approach is not a long term success plan. Don’t let your doctor get rich off of your ignorance and lack of focus. Have some accountability for your health and stop the bad habits that lead to your sickness or fatigue in the first place.
Doctors can only get rich off of you if you live your life the wrong way. If you are chronically fatigued, sick, or just run down, it is probably time to take a hard look at your nutrition habits.
If you have chronic headaches, stomach aches, rashes, or just always feel tired all of the time, this could be a warning sign that something bad is brewing inside you. You could be poisoning yourself through the food you eat, and the air that you breathe.
If the body is overloaded with toxins from bad water, bad air, pesticides, and food additives, it is left virtually defenseless against bacteria, viruses, and disease. This makes the body more susceptible to a variety of serious ailments, most of which are completely preventable. It also makes fat loss virtually impossible.
So what do you do?
It is important that you provide the body with the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that it needs to be healthy and function at its peak. You can get all of these essential nutrients from natural, pure, and whole foods, specifically in the form of organic fruits and vegetables.
Organic fruits and vegetables are loaded with bioflavonoids, phytochemicals, enzymes, carotenoids, vitamins, and minerals. Essential components for building a lean body that is healthy, strong, and full of life.
Keep in mind that you should not be eating just any old fruit or vegetable, it is important that the fruits and vegetables you eat are left their natural states and unaltered by man so that these vital nutrients aren’t destroyed. Vital nutrients are typically killed through bleaching, heating, processing, salting, and preserving, and foods altered using these methods are usually toxic to the human body.
Eating whole, unprocessed, natural foods like fresh organic, raw fruits and vegetables will help you build a body that is lean, healthy, and strong.
Have you noticed that it is difficult to exercise when you feel terrible? If you have ever thought about heading to the gym while feeling tired, run down, had a headache, belly ache, etc, you know exactly what I mean.
Some people do everything right in the gym, but destroy their chance of achieving their goals because they have bad nutrition habits and have created a toxic environment within their bodies. That is not a recipe for good health.
If you want to be healthier and look better, it all begins with what you put into your mouth. If you eliminate man made foods and focus on eating foods that are natural, pure, and whole, like raw and organic fruits and vegetables, you will have much more energy, be sick much less, and supply your body with the nutrients necessary to build your best physique ever.
