To get to know our bodies better, we must cooperate with them just the way they cooperate with us. Our bodies are always working to heal us, restore us, regenerate us and detox us when we feed it with foreign foods. By foreign foods, I’m not talking about food from a different country but food that was manipulated in some way, food that does not come in its natural state and that the body does not recognize and must work hard to assimilate.
Literally, the body has to work twice as hard to assimilate foreign food and to assimilate food that is not organic given the latter comes with pesticides and components that are very harmful to us. The body must work to fight and eliminate the free radicals formed by these foods in our bloodstream.
What’s a free radical, you ask? Free radicals are basically molecules that lack one electron, and they are produced by your body through the process of oxidation, which has to do with your metabolism and immune system. It is perfectly normal to have free radicals in your body. The problem is when there are too many! They are formed by smoking, taking drugs (prescribed or recreational), environmental toxins, processed food, stress, radiation, UV rays, among others.
Unfortunately, free radicals are partly to blame for aging, wrinkles, tissue damage, cell mutation, immune system damage, heart problems, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Cancer, the list goes on. The good news is that the effects of free radicals are reversible if we make sure to ingest antioxidants daily.
Antioxidants to the Rescue! Yes… so where do we find antioxidants? IN WHOLE, UNPROCESSED, ORGANIC FOOD. Please understand the importance of this and how crucial it is not just to your fat loss goals but also to your overall health and longevity. The idea is to add as many organic fruit, vegetables and nuts to your meals. Little by little, you can make this a habit, and train your taste buds to appreciate the deliciousness and benefits of whole food meals.
Your body will thank you, your wallet will thank you, and you’ll even inspire your family members when they notice how much more relaxed and balanced you feel and act. Also, a healthy body comes up with healthy ideas and inspiration.
