What does a Healthy Lifestyle Look Like?

Hippocrates said it best “Let your food be your medicine and let your medicine be your food”. 

Suggestions for a Health-Promoting Diet are:

  • reduce your fat intake but eat healthy fats such as olive oil and omega-3 fatty acids found in wild salmon.
  • eat a predominantly plant-based diet, especially raw leafy green vegetables and raw fruits.
  • eliminate or greatly reduce the intake of refined sugar.  If you must have a sweetener, choose stevia which is suitable for diabetics
  • do not eat processed foods that contain high caloric intake, high salt content, unhealthy fats and very little nutrients, as well as food additives and coloring agents
  • eat organically, reduce your exposure to pesticides and herbicides
  • keep salt intake low and potassium intake high
  • drink 32 to 48 ounces of filtered water daily
  • determine your caloric needs to achieve or maintain a healthy body weight
  • stop smoking
  • reduce or eliminate alcohol intake
  • reduce or eliminate caffeine
  • exercise daily to suppress appetite for weight control, increase stamina and energy, reduce stress and sleep better
  • sleep 7-9 hours daily
