Why Do We Eat Healthy Food?

There are many reasons why we ought to eat healthy food. The main reason is so our cells can absorb the nutrients they need to carry out their functions. Vitamin C, which is found in several types of fruit and vegetables, is needed for a strong immune system, cell regrowth and resiliency, for eliminating free-radicals. Protein, found in animal products and legumes, is needed for energy and muscle regrowth. Vitamin A, found certain fruits and vegetables, is needed for cell regeneration. B vitamins, found in legumes and certain fruits, are responsible for regulating metabolism and the nervous system. Vitamin D, found in certain fish and eggs, is responsible for calcium absorption. These are just a few examples of nutrients you get from your diet. If you do not eat foods that contain these nutrients, you are at risk of having a deficiency. Vitamin deficiencies lead to serious health problems such as severe joint pain, digestion problems, rickets, scurvy, osteoporosis, cancer, and heart disease.

The other major reason we need to eat healthy foods is to maintain a healthy weight. Processed foods, such as fast food or pre-packaged food, lack nutrients. Processed food does not provide the amount of nutrients that healthy food contains. It is more difficult for a person to feel full after eating processed food. This leads to overeating and poor nutrition. If a person continually eats nothing but processed food, they could easily develop a nutrient deficiency. Fast food and manufactured food is created with ingredients that have nutrients taken out. For example, if the whole part of a wheat kernel is used in a recipe, it will contain a high amount of fibre. Processed food is normally created with wheat without the parts that contain fibre. Nutrients that would normally exist in the ingredients are literally depleted when processed food and fast food is made.

Because if we don't eat healthy foods we won't grow or have strong bones and you won't be able to play a lot if you are a child because you won't have any energy for it and if you eat healthy foods you live longer than other people who eat non-healthy things because they might get a disease and not live as long.

Healthy food should be our basic food requirement. The junk food on the other hand has a lot of diseases attached to it, such as heart and liver diseases. To be on the safer side and to live a longer life, we eat healthy food.

Today we tend to go for processed foods which are not healthy for us. Healthy organic foods like fruits. But eating healthy foods should not be a huge burden to our pockets. You can find a lot of organic healthy food without spending more than what you usually spend with processed ones.

I eat healthy because I want to be able to do the most that my body can do, and I also want to honor the gift God has given me.  Eating healthy for me is drinking my quota of water for the day and juicing spinach, broccoli, bell peppers, tomatoes, carrots and sometimes cabbage because chewing vegetables is hard for me to do.

We don't have to eat healthy foods all the time, otherwise that would be unhealthy. We need a balanced diet from all food groups e.g. Protien, carbohydrates and starchy foods. Otherwise we would become unfit, unhappy, sleepy, unwell, and most importantly fat!

We eat healthy foods to keep our bodies strong and defend them from disease, they also help enhance our knowledge and senses. And when you are about to write or type or play something would you eat or drink something loaded with sugar or salt to strengthen your body? Read more medical books.(no offense).
