Healthy Eating

Imagine this, you’re walking down the street after a nice, big lunch and your stomach starts hurting, your head is pounding, you can’t think or talk straight and you’re getting weak. All signs of a stroke. Why are you having a stroke? Because of the food you’re eating.

Good Foods

Eating healthy foods will help your body and brain work, function and maintain. In order for us to feel better and look better we have to treat our bodies better.

Bad Foods

Eating unhealthy foods are hurting us. You can eat healthy once in a while but bad eating all the time will catch up to you. This bad food goes in your system and messes with your body. Your body doesn't know how to process all this bad food leading us to diseases.

Diseases We Get With Bad Eating

  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis

  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol
  • Breathing Problems

  • Liver & Gallbladder Disease

These restaurants are slowly killing us with their good tasting but harmful food.

Why do we like these fast food places? Because they use artificial flavors, sweeteners and salt.

These artificial flavors and sweeteners make food more appealing and good to eat. It is cheaper than real food, good for business and add flavors that trick our brain to make it hard to resist.

We are eating more than needed, all this extra food becomes calories turning into fat causing weight gain.
