Keep our minds strong and clear …

To keep the body in good health is a duty…

otherwise we shall not be able

to keep our mind strong and clear.

~ Buddha

 


 

To keep the body in good health is a duty … so that we can keep our mind strong and clear. Keeping our body in good health is a choice that we each have to face for our own fate. How do we want to live our life?  Do you want to live with confidence in your body, mind and spirit? Do you want to enjoy the freedom of physical well-being? Do you want to enjoy a life lived with ease of movement? These are choices that affect our well-being and ultimately have an affect on those that we live with and love.

 

Confidence in our body exudes a radiance that comes from within and shows through our sense of self-worth, security and strong and clear mind. When we feel strong and clear it’s easy for us to remember that we are valuable, we deserve to receive self-care, we owe it to ourself and our families to care for our body, mind and spirit.

 

Much has been written about the negative effects of systemic inflammation which is very often caused by the foods we choose to eat, the good old “American diet”. This game is all about making changes to our lives to help prevent some of the self-inflicted pain we cause by our conventional dietary habits. We are here to learn new ways to approach our traditional recipes with healthier preparations. I don’t know about what’s in store for the future, anything can happen ~ but, I do know that I want to give myself the best opportunity to live a healthy fun life, full of good food, friends, family and joy. I have a strong and clear belief that a Living Fit Lifestyle is going to provide me with the best chance of fulfilling that desire and preventing unnecessary disease.

 

According to Alzheimers.net ~ the foods that hamper memory are common staples in the American diet. White breads, pasta, processed meats and cheeses, all of these have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Some experts have even found that whole grain breads are as bad as white breads because they spike blood sugar, which causes inflammation. A healthy food plan does more than benefit our waistlines and dress size. A Living Fit Lifestyle improves our heart health, lowers risk for cancer, diabetes, and other diseases, and keeps our body, mind and spirit healthy. In fact, research has shown that a traditional American diet impacts memory and increases a person’s chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease. To keep our mind strong and clear ~ we need to fully embrace the Living Fit Lifestyle.

 

The brain needs its own brand of fuel. It requires healthy fats, fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and adequate vitamins and minerals. Consuming too little of these foods and too many complex carbohydrates, processed foods and sugar stimulates the production of toxins in the body. Those toxins can lead to inflammation, the build-up of plaques in the brain and, as a result, impaired cognitive function.
