Make Healthy Choices


“Food is not just calories, it is information. It talks to your DNA and tells it what to do. The most powerful tool to change your health, environment and the entire world is your fork.”

- Dr Mark Hyman

All of us finds it difficult sometimes to make a decision to change an aspect of our lives, to start playing sport, change nutrition habits or go to bed early. During your school years, your study load increases many times, you are stressed, nervous and then you begin to compensate with so-called unhealthy food. You eat burgers that contain a lot of fat and drink sweet fizzy drinks that contain a lot of sugar. Time goes by and your weight soars. At first, you may see no way out but you need to think about how to overcome your reluctance to give up unhealthy food. In adolescence, the body needs a huge amount of nutrients for growth and development. If you do not think about the benefits of a healthy diet, you will have problems in the future. You should know that losing weight is not as easy as it sometimes seems. This requires great endurance and dedication. Doing exercise, eating right and having a good mood will lead you into a wonderful future. Think about eating healthy from this moment. Do not wait for a suitable occasion or the right mood.

People who are obese have a higher risk of getting chronic diseases that reduce the quality of life. If you think about it now, you can avoid many difficulties, diseases, insecurities and many other complications related to obesity. If you have problems and you cannot reduce the consumption of harmful foods, and it is difficult to lose weight, or you have lost hope, contact a specialist who will help you in a difficult situation. And remember, you are not alone!
