Updated: Aug 26, 2022


As I have always considered food as the factor which can change one’s complete lifestyle, whether you want to lose weight or want to gain weight or you’re suffering from any kind of health problem food or nutrition is the solution for everything. The foods we humans eat considered to be a huge effect on our health, you will believe it or not, but it’s the truth and saying these words from my own life experience.

You have started and once you finish the article you will understand how to start eating healthy. We thing that eating healthy means we need to eat all boil foods and have to avoid mind pleasure taste like sweet, sour, crunchy etc.

Not at all, healthy eating and following a strict boil food diet is way too different. Healthy eating means you will understand the science behind the foods you eat. It’s all about the simple law of Thermodynamics.

Energy Not be created Or Not Destroyed. The Foods we eat is a energy right which we are having by our own and if we don’t do any work it will stay with you. Okay let’s start but why someone want to eat healthy is the question? We always need to understand the why?

Why We Should Eat Healthy Foods?

Foods not only impact our health but more our brain. It all starts with heart and goes to the brain.

Think, if someone ask you to TAR in the balloon using pump, isn’t it that hard because tar is very thick and very hard to deliver using pump. But if someone say to pump water you can easily do it right.

Yes, so when we are eating junk foods it have lots of chemical, preservatives, bad trans-fat and worst quality oil, which we are taking in.

The process of our body is to separate those nutrients and send it to the blood stream for brain functioning. The blood flow is done using heart and if the blood get lots of chemical (bad cholesterol) it get thick and heart have to do lots of work to push that blood throughout the body. On the other hand all those fat cells block the veins or arteries, which also a disadvantage for the blood flow.

When we are small we always have listen that heart need do do 2 times the work to push the blood to brain due to gravity. If there is so many problems with blood then how blood is able to send to the brain with nutrients?

That why most people suffer with heart problems in early age. This is the only one problem, but there are 1000s of problems of eating junk foods,

Like:

  • Kidney Damage

  • Liver Problem.

  • Lowe Insulin

  • High or Low blood pressure

  • Joint pain, thyroid, stone and many more.

Some Other brain problems with junk foods are:

  • Less Energy

  • Less motivation

  • feeling lazy and lethargic

  • Getting fatigued

  • Low confidence

  • Forget things or stuffs etc. But eating healthy will drastically reduce these health problems and leads to a better life. Research also says that eating healthy is the killer of heart problems and cancer as well. A good diet will improve your health performance as well as brain functioning as well. Not only this a good diet can eventually increase the efficiency of the healing power of cells and organs, and make you look and feel younger.


Energy In And Energy Our (Calories) Balance Explained.

Alright, now even if you eat boiled foods or clean foods you will never lose weight or you will never get the benefits from it because we need to balance the energy or calories we say.

Calories counting is very important if you’re looking for weight management. It’s all about energy in vs energy out. If your goal is to lose weight and want to see all the health benefits then you need to burn then you eat. Even if you eat healthy foods but you’re eating them a lot then you can’t able to lose weight if you’re not burning them. For Example: if you’re eating 2000 calories and not doing any work then that energy will get stored as fat. According to your maintains you need to less and have to burn those calories you eat so that our brain could use those stored fat as a energy.

A Brief Example:

Let’s say your maintains calories is 2000, to lose fat your need to eat 1800 Calories and need to burn at least 1000 calories to lose fat.

How To Burn Calorie?

Many people do mistakes here and think of doing cardio only.

That’s the wrong step people take while losing fat.

Once you start running you’re only burning calories, but not fat. The main thing for beginners to lose fat is the do a weighted workout. For Example: if you’re running 11Km and you’re burning 500 calories and once you stop running you’re not burning any calories any more. Once you eat food of 500+ calories your body will again store fat. But, if you go to the gym and do some workouts and burn only 200 calories, then you’ll lose fat.

How?

Breakdown of muscles need to be repair and this muscle's repair process need lots of calories or energy and this process go for 24 hrs. to 72 hrs.

So, you’re burning calories for this much time after doing weight training. Though if you don’t want to do workout then nutrition can also do the job, you just need a good diet plan.
