Food Is Medicine

Let’s face it, the American diet is terrible. Rarely do any of us eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables; instead, we reach for what’s quick and easy—packaged food and fast food—which have been so over-processed that their nutrients have long been destroyed. The reality is, we’re running our bodies on empty. #FitFam, WE NEED MORE FUEL, GOOD FUEL. Not empty-calorie junk.

HOW DO YOU FUEL?

Contributorgold Fit Wasted . Who loves Bananas? I have one every morning and here's why: Bananas are a good source of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function. Since one medium-sized banana contains a whopping 400-plus mg of potassium, the inclusion of bananas in your routine meal plan helps provide relief from stroke, blood pressure, heart and kidney disorders, anxiety and stress, as well as enhanced muscle strength, metabolism, water balance, electrolytic functions, and nervous system.

Contributorgold Fit Wasted . Water is your body’s principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight. All bodily functions depend on water. Some of these functions include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature. Fluid loss occurs all day, every day. For example, skin evaporation, breathing, urination, bowel movements, exercise and more. These losses MUST be replaced daily in order for our body to perform optimally. Drink up!

One medium pear has 5 g of dietary fiber, much of it in the form of pectin, which helps flush out bad cholesterol, a risk factor in heart disease.
