"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food."
Exercise is essential, but not the only aspect of a healthy lifestyle. Nutrition, recovery, and happiness are crucial too, as together, they form the pillars of prevention.
For our body to fulfill its primary task of keeping us healthy, it needs many different nutrients. Since we get these through what we eat, we must choose our food wisely.
Sitting is the new smoking. As our body is made to move, excessive sitting, as is usual in office jobs, has a long-term adverse effect on our health. A right amount of daily exercise is a must and part of a healthy lifestyle.
Sleeping does not mean doing anything. In this precious time, our body recovers from the strains of the day. It is cleaning up, digesting, and forming new cells. The latter also means that the muscles grow during this time. Getting enough sleep is essential, but too much of it can also have an adverse effect.
A good psyche plays an equally important role in our well-being. Stress, sorrow, and worry, as well as negative thoughts, have a direct influence on our health. A healthy lifestyle, therefore, also includes taking care of the mind and creating a positive environment.
The factors must not be considered in isolation but to each other. By completely ignoring one pillar, we diminish or nullify the benefits of the others. It is the same as multiplication, where a positive number multiplied by zero always results in zero.
Our concept takes into account not only exercise but also nutrition. Therefore, we have summarised our knowledge of what we think a balanced and healthy diet should look like in a short but comprehensive book.
Our book is the perfect first step on the way to a balanced and healthy diet. It focuses on the connection between the food we eat, our health, and the environment. In addition to in-depth knowledge, it presents proven principles and tips to help you overcome the everyday difficulties of a healthy diet.
An essential part of the book covers the basics of nutrition that are necessary to understand the connections. Therefore the author explains the topics macro- and micronutrients, wholefood and plant-based nutrition, convenience, and diet food, organic and forms of nutrition such as diets, intermittent fasting, intolerances, and dietary supplements compactly based on facts. The purpose is to give insight into why natural foods are the better choice and what role fats, proteins, carbohydrates, water, and not to forget phytonutrients and antioxidants play in this.
With inspiring examples, the reader is encouraged to develop new habits and to make the necessary changes to implement a healthy diet. Since lives aren't alike, the reader receives guidance to identify his or her obstacles and find proper ways to overcome them.
The statements in our book are based on over 50 scientific studies and articles.
We have tried all the tips & tricks ourselves and they have passed the everyday test.
Healthy eating is basically quite simple, just like our book. Short, concise and easy to understand.
