Food provides the nutrients and energy which you need to perform your normal life activities such as walking, working, running and even thinking. However, you need to be very selective with your food because consumption of some food items is very vital to maintain your health, while the consumption of others may have devastating effects on your health in the long run.
It is very important that you avoid eating diets rich in sugar, salt, trans fats, and saturated fats. Look for trans fats on the labels of margarines and processed foods. Saturated fats come from animals and they may increase your cholesterol level in the blood. Make sure that you avoid alcohol too. It has negative effects on the functions of your liver and digestive system.
In order to maintain your health, you should eat low-fat dairy products, poultry, fish, lean meats and beans. Make sure that you eat a variety of foods including whole grain products, raw vegetables, fresh fruits and cereals. Drink lots of water, preferably 12 glasses each day. Water is a natural tonic that helps remove harmful toxins out of your body.
