Hey guys, let’s go into the aspect of food.
let us know what food is all about.
Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body.It is usually of plant or animal origin,and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates,fats,protein,vitamin or minerals.the substance is ingested by an organism and assimilated by the organism to provide energy,maintain life or stimulate growth.
Food is made up of nutrients. Micro nutrients such as vitamins and minerals are needed only in small amounts. Macro nutrients such as carbohydrates, protein and fat are needed in larger amounts. The body cannot function properly if one or more nutrients are missing.
NATURAL FOOD AS NATURAL INTENDED
Man-made/factory-made/synthetic foods or any foods, which have been highly sugared, salted and processed, are devoid of so many of the nutrients and life-giving substances needed for optimal health. Foods as close to their natural state, or as nature intended them to be consumed, are, in contrast, rich in health-giving nutrients that sustain and energize us. Fresh, raw fruits and vegetables are also full the “life-force” of nature, which along with vital vitamins, minerals and photo-nutrients lead to a positive, natural state of physical and mental health and vibrancy.
NOT SO NATURAL TO AVOID
These highly processed foods lead to ill-health and disease, and to the accumulation of body fat and weight gain. Under this banner come:
White flour-based products which have a high glycaemic index and load (High GI or High GL)
Refined grains, many commercial “boxed” cereals
Refined sugars and syrups
Sugary foods and drinks such as biscuits, pastries, cake, canned drinks and many sports drinks and sports products.
Also problematic are foods that are high in both refined sugar AND commercial fats and trans fats. These include manufactured biscuits, many cereal and breakfast bars, processed protein and energy bars, cakes, pastries, chocolate bars, sweets and candies etc.
