These healthy diet tips will keep you on the right path.
Although healthy people are generally at a natural weight, this
is not about dieting and losing weigh, its about lifestyle. The
mainstream seesaw of dieting is a moneymaker that doesn’t
address real health issues and concerns.

One of the best things you can do for your body is eat at least
twelve servings of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables every
single day. These foods are packed with the things that our
bodies need; natural, non-synthetic source of Vitamins A,B, C,
and E, disease fighting antioxidants, minerals like potassium,
calcium, phosphorous, and copper.

These days too many Americans get their vitamins from synthetic
sources that are isolated and chemically induced. The best way
to get this nutrition is from the good earth, directly from the
source, from fruits and vegetables. If eating that many
vegetables seems overwhelming, just think about the colors. Get
your blue and purples like blueberries and plums to reduce the
risk of cancer and protect your urinary tract. Eat green
vegetables like broccoli and celery to protect your bones, teeth
and eyes. Consume your whites like mushrooms and onions for
healthy heart function. Eat foods like oranges and carrots to
boost your immune system from the yellow and orange fruits and
vegetables. Finally, get your reds from foods like apples and
beets for memory function and heart health.

All of these fruits and vegetables have healing qualities and
you’ll feel the difference. If you can’t eat this much or don’t
have the time, drink juices made from a vegetable juicer, a
great way to get the nutrients you need.

In addition to eating fruits and vegetables, cut down on
saturated fats from processed foods and switch to unsaturated
fats from nuts like almonds and vegetables including avocado. In
general however, cut down on fat in your life and your heart and
body will thank you for it. Speaking of processed food, begin to
rid yourself of any processed foods. And of course, drink water
so that you are flushing the toxins out your system and staying

Use these healthy diet tips as a general guide to healthy
eating, not fad dieting.

What Is A Healthy Diet?

What Is A Healthy Diet?
Alan LeStourgeon

What is a healthy diet? It’s not about counting calories,
measuring portions or cutting carbs. You won’t really find a
healthy diet on the lite menu at your favorite restaurant and
you certainly won’t find it at the local fast food joint. A
healthy diet is all about what you eat rather than how much you

If you think the latest fad diet is your panacea to health, you
are in for a big surprise. Losing weight, staying healthy and
getting back into shape after many years of diet neglect is not
about fads or eating in some radical new way for six to twelve
weeks and then going back to the way you used to eat.

The best thing you can do to keep yourself healthy is to eat a
healthy diet…all the time, not just when you want to lose
weight. Eating healthy is a long-term lifestyle choice,
something you need to do for your entire lifetime.

But what is a healthy diet? Is it what we have been lead to
believe – milk for strong bones and teeth, protein in the form
of lean beef or chicken and maybe a “healthy” microwave dinner
if we are “on the go.” Unfortunately this diet is what is
identified as the Standard American Diet or the SAD.

And what’s so wrong with the SAD?

Well, has it made us a healthier people? Are we better off as a
nation because of it?

With all of the health studies, advanced health care, the war on
cancer dating back to the 70’s, and the most advanced technology
available on the planet we have to ask ourselves why do we still
need to spend $1.3 trillion a year on health care in the United
States. Why aren’t we getting any healthier?

Other pertinent questions about your health beg for answers such
as, why after more than 30 years since the “War On Cancer” was
declared, do we still have an increasing cancer rate. Yes, we
have many more people surviving cancer but the rate at which
people are getting cancer is increasing. We have come a long way
in taking care of sick people, but we haven’t made any progress
as a nation in preventing those people from getting sick.

Why do more than 15 million people in the United States have
diabetes? Why do we still have more heart problems today than we
did 30 years ago? Why is more than 50% of our population on some
kind of prescription drug?

We spend more per person on medical care than any other nation
in the world. Why is this happening in a country that seems to
be able to solve nearly any technological problem? Why can’t we
solve our medical problems? How would life be different for us
if we were to be a nation of healthy individuals?

The secret to a healthy diet and a healthy life is living food –
fresh vegetables, fruit, juices and green leafy salads. The
answer to a healthier you is summed up in three words,
breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Living a healthy life and having a healthy family is all about
eating a healthy diet, every day of our lives!
