Hello, my name is Nehemiah Maxwell. Welcome to Healthy Eating Habit.com! It's amazing how time goes by so fast. I started spreading the word about health and wellness through this website in 2005. Yet, it seems such a short time ago.
Back then I knew nothing about building a website that could help me share my passion about health and wellness to the world. I am thankful that I "stumbled" upon a website link called Solo Build It. If you have a particular skill, or passion and knowledge, then why not convert it into a website. It may surprise you to know the impact it can have on others and on YOU!
Healthy eating along with exercise will help you look better, feel better and live longer. I am sad to say however that they are so many people who do not have a healthy lifestyle.
Much of the foods people purchase, such as french fries, fried chicken, microwave popcorn, doughnuts, margarine, cookies and pastries contain an artery-clogging fat called Trans fat. This fat can lead to type two diabetes, high cholesterol and other health problems. If you desire to live a long, healthy, vibrant life, you have to take care of your body through proper nutrition and exercise.
Eating Healthy can be enjoyable!
Some people think of eating healthy as being boring and tasteless. I
think that one reason they feel this way is because most of the commercial ads we see, promote foods high in calories, fat, or sugar and only a small percentage of food advertising is done for fruits, vegetables, grains and beans. Thus if there was more nutritional education, more and more people would find eating healthy to be pleasurable and tasty.
The Right Formula
I believe a clear formula for putting together an effective diet plan is moderation, satisfaction, nutrition, and discipline.
Discover foods that work for you, that you enjoy, and that are nutritious.
Practice moderation by reducing the amount of calories, specifically the amount of carbohydrates, (bad)fats and sugars.
Excitement can help you start a diet plan but discipline will help you stick to it.
However, you won't maintain discipline if you are not satisfied with what you regiment yourself to eating.
Here on our site, we intend to educate and motivate you to good health by providing helpful information and share stories that will inspire you and give you the courage to commit to a positive change for the better. Hopefully, you will find information here that is helpful to your personal path to a long and healthy life.
The Bad News That Put Me On The Path To Healthy Eating Habits!
In 1996 I went to the doctor to get a check-up. I was not feeling sick but someone told me that it was a good idea to get a yearly physical examination.
I have been athletic all my life. I run 18 miles a week. I also do 250 push-ups and 449 sit-ups a week. So when I went to the doctor I was not expecting to hear the bad news, he gave me. He told me I had borderline diabetes.
Diabetes can be very dangerous if not treated. It is one of the leading cause of death in the United States. It is a disease of the pancreas that causes the body to stop producing the insulin it needs to regulate blood sugar. That is why people with diabetes have such high blood sugar levels.
My doctor told me that I did not need to be put on medication, however he suggested I start reading some books on healthy eating.
One day, while I was surfing through TV channels, I came across an infomercial emphasizing the benefits of drinking the juice of raw fruits and vegetables.
I was so impressed with the information about juicing, I picked up the phone and placed an order for my first juice machine.
That day was the beginning of my path to healthy eating habits that turned my health situation around.
Healthy Eating Has Helped Me And it Will Also Help You!
Today I can honestly say the system works. I feel great, I sleep great, people tell me that I do not look my age, I maintain a healthy weight, I do not take any type of medication, my blood pressure is normal, my blood sugar is normal, my cholesterol is normal, my immune system is strong, and the list goes on. I have discovered juicing recipes that are nutritious, delicious and satisfying for me, and that is why it has continued to be a part of my lifestyle.
It is extremely a blessing to be in good health and I thank God for it. However I do not believe that I am healthy because of chance. I strongly believe that one main reason that I am healthy is because I take personal responsibility for my health. Healthy eating is a great part of this responsibility. I believe God created our physical bodies with laws that are governed by proper nutrition. If we violate these laws by consistently eating unhealthy foods, we are going to get sick.
