Eating Healthy

Introduction

Healthy eating is not about starving yourself or force yourself to stick to a “diet” no one wants to talk about. Rather, it’s about eating the food you want to in moderation, feeling great, having more energy and improving on your health and mood.

Ever feel overwhelmed by all the conflicting diet and nutrition advice out there? You’re NOT alone! It seems that for every expert
who tells you a certain food is good for you, you’ll find another saying exactly the opposite.

Quite often, the convenient food found in the grocery stores are flavored with too much sugar, salt and unhealthy ingredients.

Many of these unhealthy ingredients are hidden which is why it is significant to pay more attention to the food labels. It is necessary to know what you are putting into your mouth. By reading food labels, you get to compare and find food that have the nutritional value your body needs.
