We are often asked if it is possible to summarize good health behaviors and heathy life style to a few simple and easy to remember rules.
There are plenty of methods you can follow, each has his or her own life style. In this article, I have listed some of the best behaviors that helped me lead a healthy and happy life style.
Plant proteins for energy
Plant proteins are essential nutrients for good health. Once consumed, they are cut into blocks by our body, blocks that are essential for the proper functioning of our muscles, our blood and our cells. Although for us proteins often rhyme with meat, fish and eggs, they are also found in certain plants such as soybeans, seitan or even quinoa.
Complex carbohydrates are fun
Carbohydrates are one of the most important energy suppliers to the body, along with fats and proteins. Converted into glucose (sugar) by the body, they will provide energy to your brain and muscles and consequently help you adopt a productive life style. There are 2 types: slow or complex carbohydrates and fast or simple carbohydrates.
Complex carbohydrates have a certain advantage because they are digested more slowly and arrive less quickly in your blood, which lowers your sugar level. Do not hesitate to add brown rice, pasta, sweet potatoes, quinoa or fruit to your dishes!
Fibers, the best friends of your gut
Good digestion is very important for losing weight. The better you digest, the faster your nutrients are absorbed by your body. What you eat therefore determines how your stomach and intestines will behave. This is why we must favor fibers for better digestion! Vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts and whole grains will be your best allies.
Minerals and vitamins are our friends for life
For a healthy life style and a funky diet, nothing is better than minerals, essential for many functions of the body. In addition to providing you with energy, they will give you not only a better memory but also a radiant appearance: shiny hair, strong nails and beautiful skin. They also protect you from disease and infection and help you heal faster!
Goodbye filthy food
In other words, throw away anything that is not good for you. Cut out junk food, refined sugars and processed foods if you want to have a healthy life style and lose weight.
Sweat and move.
Half an hour of sport several times a week is enough to stay in shape. Alternate with a walk, an hour of swimming pool or any activity that gets you moving. The most important thing is to do what you love! if you force yourself, you will not succeed and quickly give up.
Sleep is Important
Going to bed early should not be considered a punishment: the next day, you will be rewarded! In addition to being in good shape, you will have digested better, and lost more weight. We keep repeating, sleep is essential, which is why you need to get enough sleep. It is a mandatory thing you should add to your life style
