Eat this, not that!

What foods are bad for you? What should you eat instead?

     I know that unhealthy foods taste good and delicious, but they are not healthy for your body. If want to stop eating as much unhealthy foods, just try training your brain with telling the good foods and bad foods, and eating the healthy foods. When you get hungry, sometimes you can just drink a glass of water, and usually you’re not hungry after you drink, but if you are that means you are actually hungry, and try getting a healthy snack, like an apple, carrot, or banana.

     Unhealthy Foods: Health is important to your healthy living If you want to be healthy, eating healthy is a good start. Some of the most unhealthiest foods are fast food, microwave popcorn, fruit juice, candy, and sugary cereal. And those are the foods you want to stop eating regularly, and maybe rarely eat. But you mainly want to stay away from these.

     Fast food contains many carbohydrates, which in other words are sugar, starch, and cellulose. Fast foods also contain unhealthy fats and salt; foods that contain high calories, they usually have little or no nutrition.

       Fruit juice and diet sodas are not good for your health because fruit juice contains vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but it lacks fiber. Fruit juice is also loaded with sugar, but some types of orange juice are healthy; containing folate, potassium, and vitamin B1.

    It is also extremely unhealthy to consume sugary cereal and candy. Some fats and sugars can lead to health problems. Many snacks that appear to be healthy such as granola bars, protein bars or fruit snacks are actually not. Butylated Hydroxyanisol, azodicarmonabide, Carrageenan, Aspartame, and and propyl gallate are common in many snacks marketed to be healthy. These ingredients are actually toxic. Always live by this rule: If you can’t pronounce it, do not put it in your body!

     Healthy Foods: What foods are good for you? There are many surprising healthier foods you may not have known about, such as dark chocolate which is the third healthiest food in the world. There are other healthy foods, such as lemons, broccoli, salmon, walnuts, avocados, spinach, and beans.

     Studies show that dark chocolate is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet. Dark chocolate can improve health and lower the risk of heart disease. But the dark chocolate that is healthy is not the chocolate that has a high number of sugar. (

     Lemons are the healthiest food on the planet. The lemon contains flavonoids, which make them so healthy and that’s why we use lemons for illness and conditions. Many people say, ”The greatest wealth is Health,” and they are definitely right.

Always put a lot of thought in what goes into your body.
