There is a wide misconception especially in recent times suggesting that people have to live a life full of discontent in order to be healthy all through their lives. But this is far from the truth as available evidence suggest. For instance, people are being told to stay off sugar to avoid being diabetic as a result most of them end up taking bitter foods/products when they can take the alternative (like honey) without being victims to any form of health implications.
Hence, the issue of healthy living primarily centres around how we as humans (individually) are able to set our priorities right and being able to implement them meticulously and painstakingly such that they become a second nature (daily routines) to us. Also, one of the means of achieving this which is not an impossibility is simply by paying more attention to vegan foods or products which can be purchased at significantly low cost. This is because by going vegan we can achieve more than 90% improvement in our lifestyle while exercising will take care of the remaining aspects for us. The following pointers can serve as a guide to living healthy:
• Go Vegan:
Consuming (balance) vegan foods and supplements comes with several health benefits which ranges from treatment of malnutrition issues to other serious wellness concerns affecting people around the world today. This is because vegan foods are rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, beans, nuts, soy products and whole grains which serve as a good source of balanced diet with are highly nutritional. As a result, going vegan helps to prevent kidney related diseases, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels, arthritis, cardiovascular disease just to mention a few.
• Maintaining a normal body weight: maintaining a normal body weight ensures that an individual is an asset to himself or herself as well as those around him or her. Going vegan has been proven to be the most effective and safest way of achieving this; this because it poses no danger in terms of side-effects to the user. It helps the body to get rid of unhealthy substances that promote unnecessary body weight issues. It also lowers the Body Mass Index (BMI) of an individual.
• Exercise regularly: it is one of the natural ways of living a healthy lifestyle in addition to going vegan. This is because it helps the body to get rid of substances which are not needed in the system such burning excess fats and sugar, managing stress level etc.
• Others are quitting smoking most especially for those who are addicts so as to correct issues of bad breath and lower the risk of developing lung cancer and reducing the amount of toxic substances intake from intoxicants found in the environment which are both a source of global concerns; and being proactive by adopting preventive care. This is because the best form of treatment and ideal lifestyle is one that is built around the tenets or common saying that “prevention is better than cure”.
