As Hippocrates, the father of the modern medicine stated before “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” Food is Medicine! You cannot out-exercise an unhealthy diet.
I understand, sometimes life gets in the way and it is easier to pull into a drive-thru or order a delivery pizza then prepare a full meal when you are short on time. But what is timely, convenient and cheap isn’t always what’s the best.
The quality of food you are putting into your body is going to determine how successful you are in achieving your weight loss goals and good health for lifetime. While changing your eating habits isn’t easy at first, all it takes are some simple changes to start living the healthy lifestyle and getting its many benefits. Eating well for you, is not only helpful in weight loss but also in reducing a number of health risks.

It is also not only about the diet but …WHO you are: what are your genetics, how was your childhood, how you react to stress, how happy you are in your current career or relationship, how physically active you are on daily basis.
“It is more important to know what kind of person has a disease than to know what kind of disease a person has.” ~ Hippocrates
