PAYING FOR YEARS OF ABUSE

“Feed the machine properly.”


THE PRICE OF JUNKĀ 

As we sit in our homes through this quarantine we have to be cognizant of the meals we consume. I know that’s hard given the circumstances. But not only does it leave us open to the virus for not eating properly, we can see ourselves suffering from more debilitating illnesses. And trust me I get it, the junk taste better. But the is a cost that comes with not consuming a well balanced diet. You don’t really see it when you’re younger but over time it starts to work against you. It works against you such that most people can’t reverse the damage that has been done. You don’t bounce back from a sickness at forty like you did at twenty. So know and understand the contents in which you are consuming.

IF THE MACHINE BREAKS DOWN

Try putting sand in your transmission where you’re supposed to place oil. Or add water in your gas tank instead of gas. Then when your car breaks down you will see the long term effects of what you have been doing over the years. And the shocking part is that people get surprised when they have these problems later in life. It’s because you’ve been pumping your insides full of products that just shouldn’t be there. Because even though it taste good that doesn’t mean it’s good for you. You have to be able to discern between the consuming of something because it taste delicious and the benefits it brings because of the consumption of a delicious meal.

NEVER SETTLE

Most people are under the assumption that you have to be without children and not married to stay in shape. Because you have all these priorities with a family. And the reality is that there are people with four and five children and yet their lives work with health and fitness. You have to have a certain level of motivation otherwise you’ll start to have these internal problems that might actually block you from having a life as a better parent or spouse.

POOR OPTIONS: HOW TO EAT HEALTHY WITH LITTLE MONEY

Person Carrying Basket of Vegetables

“Eat well people.”


when you have less

As a young man with not much income, I am still able to consume a meal that is good for me to eat. Now granted I don’t have children which forces you to have a major lifestyle change. But I wake p in the morning, leg lift with the medicine ball, then when I am able to get back on the bench, I bench press. But people seem to think that if you have less money that means that your diet has to be a reflection of the lack of income. And yes, the meals that are the most affordable are usually the meals that aren’t good for you. But there are other options if you are willing to eat them.

daily calories

A human only really needs about 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day to remain healthy.Only problem in America is that we generally consume more than we need. We eat when we feel hungry, and sometimes that can still be after eating. But there are days I feel hungry, but I am not hungry. And that means at times you’re eating as a person just to be eating. So when you consume even though it is not useful to do so, then you find yourself being unhealthy. Just always remember, eating to get full is less healthy then eating because you must have a meal that day.

how far can my dollar go

Whenever I go to the store, I see fruits and vegetables that seem more expensive than they are; and that is because it is a supply and demand thing. You have to realize that the more the fruit that people want, it will be higher at the store. Cherries cost more than bananas, but there are also other variables, yet cherries are more popular. So know what is within your cost that taste good and is healthy. But also be prepared to know the value of starches and poultry in addition to the fruits and vegetables. Buy the bulk pack of poultry, like wings instead of breast, but bake the wings and not fried. As for the condiments, don’t add too much, such as sugar and sauces.

LIQUID CONSUMPTION: THE FLUIDS THAT GO INTO YOUR BODY

Clear Glass Cup

“The effects of drinks on the body.”


quenching our thirst

Whenever you take a sip or even guzzle down a drink, understand this, it’s just like food. Whatever fluid you bring into the body, will inevitably alter the body’s chemistry. So if you bring into the body soda, you will have a breaking down of the body because it is highly acidic, and the sugar content that exist in each soda. Conversely, if you drink water the body is 75% water, so you are bringing into the body something that is natural. Water also has the benefits for the Kidneys in expelling waste. Soda drinks out the body, and this is how you can develop things like Kidney Stones. Well, what about those delicious fruity beverages. Because they have their benefits as well: kiwi, bananas, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, and cherry.

beware of the fruits

I eat all the fruits I need to be eating, but there is still something wrong with my blood sugar levels. And the problem is because they have quit a bit of sugar in them as well. That is a hard concept to understand because growing you you are always told to eat your fruits and vegetables. Now you have to make sure they balance out as you age. Because something that is suppose to aid you can hurt you when your intake is too high. So you have to bring into play the vegetables, which can also be used as a beverage as well. That’s right, a veggie beverage. And you’re probably wondering what does that taste like.

veggie drink

Me personally, I have never had a veggie beverage. I think the idea of drinking your vegetables is something I can’t find delicious. Now, I am sure there are many health benefits from consuming vegetables this way. And by all means, if there is anyone out there who can tell me of something that is good for you, that also taste delicious, please show me in that direction. Because I am always trying to look for new places to eat food, especially if the food serves some sort of holistic benefit.
