Eating Healthy - A tool to ace your health.
Right things happen at the right time but it may not go right with the food. Many people can be found talking about eating right in this age, otherwise, the consequence of not doing the same may be borne by you in your later years. To add on to this agony, you can also consult your relatives and if you haven’t got much qualms about your health, then they will get you straight while, talking at you and pushing you insufferably to believe yourself to be a midget who sustained on Maggi (it doesn’t taste the same; the lead content was probably the tastier content) which took over your system and any kind of health related issue that may arise today or tomorrow will definitely be worded inconsolably, pointing towards your fault.
Individuals who fall ill often are misunderstood, misjudged and have to go through endless remarks (often turns out to be the ugly head of mental torture) from family, colleagues, peers at schools or colleges, who do not intend to harm them but the less of empathy in them, aggravates the situation. Indeed, a person can fall ill and it’s natural if we look at the broader picture that our organs function all day and in deficiency of some or the other essentials in our diet, the toll of our frequent visits to hospital along with the medical bills will keep rising. Often times, I find myself caught in this conundrum. The growing inefficiency of my stomach must end but to achieve this end, as most people say I must have lots of water and exercise for few minutes, which one might tend to ignore but this free advice is - a jackpot, to my relief.
A regular balanced diet and proportionate water intake can cure many problems.

These diseases and all sorts of other kinds can be avoided if we include fruits and vegetables in our diet, at least 400g per day i.e. 5 portions of fruits and vegetables per day.

As for vegetables, the story is different, we usually don’t go for any favorites because majority of young folks even don’t want to look at them and it’s mostly an ordeal at the dinner table for many. But, one can count on vegetables to combat many troubles of our lifestyle diseases; these vegetables are home to various vitamins, minerals, are rich in fiber content and have properties to fight cancerous or tumorous cells.
