Do you ever notice some people around you never seem to get sick? They always seem to have great looking skin, are happy, and healthy.
And then you look at yourself. You get sick at least 3 times during the winter and maybe another 3-5 times throughout the year. You seem to be always sick. Why is it so different? Does it all come down to genetics?
The answer is no. While genetics do have a part to play, healthy people generally do have things in common which helps them stay healthy. So what are they?
They Don’t Buy Fast Food
I get it, fast food is super convenient and cheap! It is so easy just to pick up a burger and fries on the way home from work. But this kind of food is doing a lot of damage to your skin, health, and weight. It’s also not giving your body the vitamins and nutrients it needs to stay healthy. Healthy people get the nutrients their body needs through fresh fruit and vegetables. Healthy people may only get fast food around twice a year.
They Find Exercising Fun
Healthy people not only exercise more, but they actually find exercising fun. They not only go to the gym, but they also have activities which they love and also help their fitness. Some examples are tennis, hiking, biking, kayaking, indoor sports, yoga, etc. So try and find an activity that gives you good exercise and is also fun for you. If you enjoy yoga but don’t like going to classes, you can now follow lead classes in the comfort of your own home. Check out our YogaDownload review.
They Drink Loads Of Water
Healthy People drink lots of water. In fact, the majority of their daily liquid intake is water. And I am not talking about the water from a soda. I am talking about plain water. Healthy people may drink 1-2 coffees a day and maybe one soda a month. The recommended daily intake of water is half of your body weight in ounces. So if you weight 200lbs, you should be drinking around 100 ounces a day of plain water.
They Avoid Fruit Juices & Sodas
Healthy people virtually never drink sodas and very rarely drink fruit juice. Instead they opt for drinks such as water, tea, coconut water, and coffee. Sodas are not only bad for your health, but also bad for your skin. They can help you put on weight and give you breakouts. Diet sodas are in this category too. They have nasty artificial sweeteners in them which cause serious longer term damage to your brain and body.
Fruit juices are another one that many people think are healthy so they drink a whole bunch of it. While it is ok to drink up to around half a glass of natural fruit juice without any other added ingredients besides the fruit, it is important to realize just how much fruit you are consuming. Some people drink lots of juice each day and in some cases people are drinking an equivalent of 100 oranges a day. Does that sound good for you? It is super easy to overdo drinking fruit juices as they taste great and you can drink them quickly. It is much better to eat actual fruit instead of these juices as fruit has fibre which helps digestion.
They Load Up On The Vegetables
Vegetables are not only really good for you, but they are also very delicious when prepared well. Healthy people know how to eat vegetables so that they taste great. They make them feel healthier and give them more energy. Try adding more vegetables into your diet and eat at least 3 salads a week without a cream based dressing such as ceaser dressing. Go for an oil based dressing such as balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
Finally, They Spend More Time In The Kitchen
Healthy people spend a lot more time in the kitchen making their food from scratch. They generally avoid packaged food which is full of nasty ingredients and spend a lot more time in the fruit and vegetable section of the grocery store. And if they do buy packaged foods, they make sure to read all ingredients labels to make sure they get the healthiest option.
