Have you ever noticed a change in your energy level after a meal? That’s no coincidence. What you eat directly affects how you feel, both physically and mentally. While we all have our favorite treats, it’s important that our bodies get the nutrients they need each and every day. Basically the good should outweigh the bad. Because, a strong body means a strong mind.
A diet that is high in protein and vegetables is bound to leave you much more energized for a longer period of time than one that is high in carbs. An article titled “Why Refined Carbs Are Bad For You” on healthline.com states that “Eating refined carbs is linked to drastically increased risk of many diseases, including obesity, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.”
On the other hand, proteins like beef are not only rich in minerals, but also contain L-carnitine, which “is a health-promoting compound that occurs naturally in meat products.” This compound “plays a part in fat metabolism” (nutritionadvance.com). Similarly, it’s no secret that vegetables are good for your body. Specifically, “Vegetables are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fiber, folate (folic acid), vitamin A, and vitamin C” and can help protect against certain types of cancers and other diseases (choosemyplate.gov).
Not only is it important to choose the kinds of foods wisely, but also the quality of those foods. Avoiding processed foods with preservatives and chemical additives can be just as critical as keeping your diet clear of greasy foods and sugars. For instance, according to Health.com, since Nitrite “is often found in meats...The American Cancer Society recommends people lessen their consumption of processed meats to avoid consumption of nitrites, which have even been linked to some types of cancer.”
