Your daily diet doesn’t just affect your overall health and body weight. The foods you eat also have a huge impact on your energy levels, mood and digestion. These 5 signs will tell you if you are eating right for your body.
Sign 1: Your digestion works great
A healthy diet will soothe your tummy and keep your digestive tract running smoothly. If you aren’t able to go to the bathroom at least once a day (but preferably twice or more), you’re probably not eating right for your body. Load up on fiber-rich foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes and super seeds like chia and quinoa. You could also consider using 1 tablespoon of psyllium husk a day for a thorough colon cleanse.
Sign 2: You effortlessly maintain a healthy weight
Get ready to throw away your scales, because you won’t need them any longer! Eating a healthy diet high in raw fruits and vegetables will automatically help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight. Your clothes will fit better (you might even drop a few sizes!), and you won’t need to stress about your calorie intake or restrict your portion sizes ever again.
Sign 3: Your meals give you energy
Do you still feel tired when your alarm clock wakes you up in the morning? Do you often feel sluggish after having lunch or dinner? Do you end up in the sofa watching TV every night, feeling utterly exhausted? Processed foods and improper food combinations can hinder your digestion and decrease your energy levels. Would you like to have enough energy to meet with friends or cook a healthy meal after work? Follow these healthy diet tips and start by drinking at least one green smoothie a day (sign up to the mailing list to receive your free smoothie eBook).
Sign 4: You sleep better
Do you have trouble falling asleep or do you often wake up in the middle of the night, unable to get back to sleep? Improving your diet will have a huge impact on the quality and quantity of sleep you are getting each night. By eating right for your body, you will experience deeper sleep and more vibrant dreams. You will wake up feeling refreshed in the morning and you will be able to keep your energy levels high throughout the day.
Sign 5: You are happier
Hundreds of scientific studies have shown that processed foods can significantly increase your risk of depression. All those unhealthy fats, refined sugars and artificial additives act like a drug in our body. You might feel great right after you’ve had that chocolate chip cookie or that bag of fries, but one hour later you will probably feel even worse than you did before. Don’t fall into the same trap over and over again! Choose healthier options like the chocolate chip cookies in this Raw Recipe eBook for Beginners or this tempting apple crumble with fresh cashew cream. Healthy meals and snacks will decrease your mood swings and make you feel more relaxed & happy. Don’t believe me? Try it!
