Have you heard the saying, "You are what you eat?" Those words are full of truth. Proper nutrition is essential! What you put in your body will determine how you look and feel, and can either help or hurt you. Do you want to know what your body needs or how to make your self healthier inside and out? Read the following article for helpful suggestions to do just that:
Mix protein and carbohydrates when you sit down to eat. You'll still get energy from the carbohydrates, but the protein will ensure that there is something in your system besides sugar. Eating a mix of the two this way will keep your blood sugar stable and keep your appetite down.
Have a doctor check your blood for levels of various minerals and vitamins in your blood stream. Ask for a complete check. That way, if you find you are deficient in any one thing, or a few things, you can immediately start taking steps to change your diet so you stay well and healthy.
