It’s always interesting to hear what people have deemed as a “good” food and a “bad” food, a “healthy” food and an “unhealthy food”, or what they “should eat” or “shouldn’t eat”.
Take a poll, and you will find that some people claim the following:
Bread makes me fat.
Bread is a healthy carbohydrate.
Eggs have too much cholesterol.
Eggs keep my blood sugar and energy stable.
Meat is bad, I only eat soy.
Soy is poison, I only eat good meats.
Brown rice is my health staple.
Brown rice makes me fat.
Lean meats keep me thin, red meat makes me fat.
Lean meats keep me hungry, red meats keep me thin and satiated.
So what is a “healthy” food? Is there even such a thing? Let’s explore a little bit and find out.
Can it really be true that one food is really “healthy” for every individual? Is one food really “unhealthy” for every individual? Is that even possible? What about our own physiological make-up? How come one diet “works” for one and is a disaster for another?
There are some foods that, without question, are not meant to be consumed by humans. Generally speaking, if you don’t see it hanging on a tree, growing out of the ground, or walking/swimming on the earth, it may not be best for us to consume. Artificial ingredients are just that; artificial.
Too much of anything, even things that work well for your Metabolic Type, can become a not-so-good thing quickly. Balance and moderation always play a part.
Eating foods that are right for you may be quite different than the foods your friends and family consume. Making conscious decisions about what foods you’re eating and why can help steer you in the right direction. Working with a professional is also a great way to get on track and be sure you’re headed down the right path that’s right for you.
Nutrition plays a tremendous role in one’s health condition, and so does adequate exercise, proper sleep, lots of laughter, quiet time, and self-love. So although we can certainly take a deep look at what we’re putting in our mouth, we best be sure to take a look at the other components affecting our overall health and wellness.
