Look Good, Feel Good, and Be Healthy: Top 10 Superfoods You Should Be Eating Right Now! More
I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with the adage, “A minute on the lips, forever on the hips.” That quote always kept running in my mind every time I savored and enjoyed a delicious meal. To rub out the feelings of guilt I always made it a point to burn most of the calories I consumed by going to the gym and follow a detoxing program. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with eating per se. However, it’s quite scary to think that most foods that are served to us every day are foods that are laden with fat, salt, sugar, preservatives and are oftentimes lacking in vitamins and nutrients that are essential to the body’s needs; not to mention the pesticides that are sprayed on vegetables and fruits.

However, consuming these “enhanced” foods everyday might pose dangers to our health. Not having the conscious effort of eating healthy food and having poor eating habits (a diet that contains too much cholesterol, trans fat, saturated fats, and sugar) could cause deadly diseases. In fact, according to statistics, the top leading causes of death worldwide are non-communicable diseases which are one way or the other, related to unhealthy eating.
