Health is wealth
We take our health for granted, until it is gone. Here are great tips that will make a world of difference to your health. Eat at fixed hours.
Eat the meals at fixed hours every day. If you follow up this advice religiously, you will be far healthier than your peers.
Don’t wait till you’ve reached the age when you can no longer say “you are only old in the mind?” Start eating your meals at fixed hours every day. Only when a person becomes a grandmother, does he or she start realizing the importance of eating meals at a fixed time. Begin now, so the next generation can say of you “Hello no! That ain’t my mother, that’s my grandmother.”
Avoid eating between meals:
Your digestive system doesn’t get a break if you keep munching throughout the day, so give it a rest. Breakfast at 8:30 am, lunch at 12:30 pm and dinner at 7:30 or 8 pm at the latest and you not eat anything in the middle. If you must, take a milk and snack break once in the evening, but no more. However, if you are looking to lose weight, dine even earlier and skip your evening snack entirely.
Reduced meat consumption:
Avoid eating red meat and too much chicken. Fish is fine, as it is very high in protein. Other forms of meats are not as easy to digest. Ever noticed how doctors advice certain patients to stop consuming non vegetarian food? Ever noticed how many people, as they advance in age, choose to give up meat? That is because these people’s system can no longer take so much meat. The human body was not built to consume flesh, which is why humans ultimately have to switch to vegetarian food. A cow will starve to death in grassless land, but will not eat meat, and a lion will die in hunger, but will not feed on grass. Why?
Nature has made the lion a meat eater. He has well developed canines, and a “short” long intestine to quickly expel meat before it develops toxins. Humans on the other hand have extremely poorly developed canines, appropriate for chewing vegetables, not for tearing flesh. In addition, they have “long” long intestines rendering it impossible (unless you have a bad stomach) to expel the meat before it goes bad in the body and starts spreading toxins.
Increase soyabean consumption:
Most of us know that soyabeans are excellent provider of nutrients, but how many of us eat this rich food? An easy way to include soyabeans in our diet is to add 500 gm of soyabeans in 10kg of wheat before it is milled. Eat these soya / wheat chapatis instead of regular wheat chapatis.
Enjoy your meals:
Don’t rush through your meals.
Chew your food properly, so your system finds it easier to digest.
Have a lively conversation during meals
Turn mealtime into family time. Try and ensure that everyone eats atleast one meal in a day together. Don’t give your children meals in their rooms unless they are unwell. Make sure that they sit with the rest of the family. If this is a rule from the beginning, they will abide by it with more ease as they grow up.
5. Remove the television from the dining room , or let it play music. You should not be watching the TV while eating.
