Sometimes we think, “I have these bad habits for my health – I done it this way for so long, why change now?”
Because taking better care of our selves at any stage of life does have an affect on how we live and how we feel. Like this study:
A new study shows older people with established heart disease who ate the most heart-healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, fish, and nuts had a much lower risk of dying or having another heart attack or stroke than those who ate the unhealthiest diet. via http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/news/20121129/diet-prevents-repeat-heart-attacks
Basic foods – unprocessed and natural – are the keys to a better diet. Don’t think of a diet as something you start and then are able to stop once your reach a certain goal. A diet is what you eat everyday for your entire life. It doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the ‘bad’ foods from time to time – just make good choices most of the time and your body will thank you for it.
