Whole Foods Diet:
Nature's Bountiful Selections
Leads To Sustained Health
Frequently, a whole foods diet has been introduced and reported by the news media at an ever-increasing rate, always extolling the benefits of making this new lifestyle dietary change. Many doctors, researchers and nutritionists have even been heard to say it is never necessary to begin any dieting program for weight loss if you would just eat whole foods every day, every meal!
What Is A Whole Foods Diet
This diet plan is a new strategy just introduced within the first decade of the 21st century. Simply put, it consistently equates to a lifetime of good digestive health and nutrition. It is based on four very easy but basic principles:
- Eat real food
- Eat less food
- Eat slowly
- Walk every day for ten minutes after your dinner meal
By following these four steps, it will lead to a major decrease in your chances of acquiring many of the major debilitating diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes (control blood sugar), obesity, high cholesterol plus others which are often considered a normal part of aging. By changing to this lifestyle, many already diagnosed patients have even reduced or eliminated their dependency on many of the medications and therapies common to these ailments.
How Do I Know If It's A Whole Food
Whole foods are simple to spot when you are shopping. If the food product looks exactly like it was found in nature, then you have truly found a product fresh, unprocessed, simple and devoid of all chemical additives and preservatives. Another way to think of this, if it comes packaged with any kind of wrapper, ingredient label, nutrition label etc. then it is no longer a whole food. Unfortunately, once a product has been packaged in any form, whether it is minimal to extended processing, chemical inhalants, dyes and colorings, preservatives (wax coatings) and any other number of things could have been done at the processing plant.
The easiest way to find a good source of whole foods is directly from the organic farmer or a rancher which follows the policy of raising grass-fed cattle. All of these products have been raised by nature which is the most important factor to considering any product one of the types of whole foods.
Currently though, most agencies here in the United States do not support good nutritional advice. Several reasons for this paradox include:
Until the day arrives where priorities change and the health of the people are more important than the health of a few large industries, it is vitally important each of us takes the time, asks questions and verifies the cleanliness and purity of our purchases when selecting the choices we choose to set up our new whole foods meal plan.
