We’ll list some of the healthiest foods that if eaten, will provide your body with the necessary nutrients to fight off most colds, and keep the immune system alert and strong.
Garlic: Garlic is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. If you’re feeling a slight sore throat or cough, eat about 3 or 4 cloves of garlic. Warning: don’t do this on an empty stomach, you’ll get major heart burn, do it with a meal, after or just before a meal to allow other food to get digested with it.
Onion: Onion is also a magic food where it helps fighting off all sorts of sickness and disease.
Broccoli: Broccoli is one of the most nutritious vegetable there is. Try sticking some into most of your dishes, if you break it up small enough, it’s hard to even notice its introduction into your meal.
Fruits: Having fruits will give you your vitamin C requirements, as well as many other nutrients. They don’t say an apple a day will keep the doctor away for no reason.
Meat: If you are exercising regularly, to gain that muscle mass you’re looking for, you need to give it the proteins it needs. A can of tuna is always a very good choice, but a steak or a chicken breast will also do the trick properly.
Rice: Rice is a marvelous addition to any meal. My secret is for any amount of rice, is the amount of water you put in, bring it to a boil, then turn heat as low as it can get and wait 20 minutes for it to be done. I use basmati rice most often.
I feel it very important to stay away from the following foods: sugars, chocolate, potato chips, canned foods, pre-packaged dinners, and dairy products. Just by staying off of these foods you will notice a difference in body weight, energy levels, and skin complexion. Just simply removing dairy products will reduce body fat, clear complexion and eliminate upset stomachs in many cases.
Remember, you are seeking to better yourself, and stuffing yourself silly will not better yourself. It will give you a bloated stomach and a lack of motivation for a very long time, but nothing more.
This is not just a change of a few little foods that you eat, this is a major shift in your thinking habits. You want to be stronger, you want to be thinner, you want to grow your mind and body into a force to be reckoned with, so don’t kid yourself with over eating or being lazy.
