There are many, many “health” tips floating around out there, but a lot of them aren’t really any good — or any good for you. Some of them can actually cause weight gain.

Being informed is the first step to having better health. Here are some basic rules to follow.

Not all calories are created equally

We have been socialized to equate “calories” with “weight gain.” But here’s the thing. We all need calories to sustain our bodies and get through the day. Add in exercise, and you need even more calories. For more visit くすりエクスプレス.

Also, the ways in which foods become “low-calorie” or “calorie-free” involves lots and lots of chemicals, which can be very bad for you.

A great example of this is aspertame. It’s the zero-calorie sweetener found in most “diet” sodas. Although it doesn’t contain any calories, it does create feelings of not being full and it prevents your body from shedding weight. Long-term exposure can cause brain lesions, fatigue, anxiety, twitches, and other negative side effects. Doesn’t that sound lovely?

So if you’re drinking tea or coffee, sweeten it with raw honey or raw sugar, if at all possible. Stay away from processed sugars and artificial sweeteners.

Why?

It might sound strange, but here’s the thing, folks. Your body knows what it’s doing. When you deliver nutrients into your body in a biocomplex, your body takes the food, takes out what it needs, and sends the rest on its way.

If you deliver something to your body that has already been stripped down to its barest form (processed sugar, for example) your body has no idea what to do with it and so it deposits that substance into fat storage. For more visit ベストケンコー.

Do your best to eat foods that are as close as possible to how nature intended them to be. Organic whole milk is better for you than skim non-organic milk. Edamame beans are infinitely better for you than anything made out of processed soy.

Whole fruits and vegetables are more nutritious (and tastier) than their canned counterparts.

What about expense?

Everyone thinks that eating healthy food is expensive, and it can be. But you don’t have to take out a second mortgage to offset costs.

Here are a few tips to keep costs down: the more “processed” a product is, the more expensive it is. For example, boneless, skinless chicken breasts cost double or triple per pound what a whole chicken costs. You can buy natural, free-range, and organic meat, and with some practice, you can break the chicken down in a few minutes. You get more meat and have scraps left over for stock. For more visit ユニドラ.
