What Is A Healthy Balanced Diet?

A healthy balanced diet is all about getting the right balance of nutrients, too much of some and not enough of others.

A healthy balance diet doesn’t mean imposing strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of some foods that you love or even crave.

It should be about feeling great, having more energy, and stabilizing your mood.

It’s Not Just What You Eat, It’s How You Eat

Healthy eating isn’t just about more the food on your plate, it’s also about how you think about food.

So it’s important to think about food as nourishment rather than just something to gulp down in between meetings or on the way to pick up the kids.

Try to avoid eating in front of the TV or computer because doing so often leads to robotic like overeating.

We tend to rush though our meals, forgetting to actually taste the flavors and feel the textures of our food.

Decide to reconnect with the joy of eating!

Cholesterol – The Good – The Bad – And What Is Healthy

A Short Recap About Good And Bad Cholesterol

Cholesterol - The Good - The Bad - And What Is Healthy

There are basically two kinds of cholesterol HDL and LDL.

HDL (high density lipoprotein) is a very beneficial cholesterol because it carries the fat through the blood and prevents it from being deposited on the arteries.

Bad cholesterol is known as LDL or low density lipoprotein, and it’s quite often brought on by poor eating habits and stress.

But age, gender, and genetics also play an important role, along with weight, diet and activity level.

Elevated LDL causes fatty deposits to accumulate on arteries and blood vessels and this restricts the movement of blood, which in turn causes high blood pressure.

High blood pressure can lead to coronary heart disease, which is often a precursor to heart attacks and/or strokes.
