Eating Well Is Not Enough

You already know: most people eat too much and badly.

But eating well is not enough to improve your health.

An industry which damages their clients doesn’t live very long, that’s why more and more companies are trying to produce and distribute healthier food to the most careful customers.

People are always more aware about the role of food on their health.

But on the other hand, the idea of eating less and consuming more is not particularly interesting to the mass distribution and the largest food industries.

Their revenues would collapse.

That’s why the real challenge isn’t only eating well; it’s eating less and consuming more.

Eating less: not as easy as you think!

Avocados, extra virgin oil, walnuts, almonds, apples and vegetables can damage your health too if consumed in huge quantities.

Several studies affirm it is essential to reactivate the ancient balance between food and consume, related to our past as hunters/pickers.

Reinstating this balance activates different regenerative circuits in our cells and seems able to promote longevity and health.

Let me be clear with you: eating less is not easy.

Substituting sugar with honey is not a revolutionary act, but a way to continue staying dependent on the food.

You won’t see relevant changes if you consume honey instead of sugar.

Substituting and correcting your alimentation is quite easy, but eating less requires a high demonstration of self-control.

Eat less, start now:

  • Reduce the amount of the servings by 10-15%
  • Learn to tolerate hunger
  • Try the intermittent fasting, the simplest approach is the 16/8 one: 16 hours of fasting followed by an 8-hour period when you can eat.

Consuming more, back to the prehistory:

Early humans had to walk for kilometers and kilometers before finding a prey or a nutrient-rich food.

Biologically speaking, millions of years later, we haven’t changed very much.

And even if over time, we don’t need to hunt and search for food any more, moving still impacts on our health.

Exercising and doing physical activity is not easy and needs a lot of discipline too.

Consuming more, what you can do:

  • Reduce the heating in your home and particularly in your bedroom
  • Exercise regularly (combining cardio workouts and strength training)
  • Choose options which bring your body to a bigger caloric consume (take the stairs, prefer going to a place on foot or by bike, stand as much as possible during the day.)

Take the next step

Correcting dietary mistakes and substituting harmful foods with healthier ones is useful and improves the quality of your life.

But it’s only the first step to take, where many people tend to stop.

You need to go beyond, if you want to live a longer and healthier life.
