The way we look, feel and perform is all affected by the type of fuel we put into our body. Most of us eat far too much processed food which has little nutrional content compared to fresh fruit and vegetables. Most processed food is also more likely to contain combinations of the following – chemicals, pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones or has been genetically engineered. Good food does take time to prepare but it is worth it for the taste and the positive benefits to health.
Nutritionists do not recommend dieting as most people return to their bad habits, rather that you have a sensible and healthier diet containing lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and take more exercise. Diet pills and stomach stapling operations are extreme measures and should only be used by those who are morbidly obese and who are unable to discipline themselves to any diet.
If you have persistent health problems because of your weight you should see a qualified medical practitioner/doctor.
