There are many times you can read magazines and watch the news to see people saying being skinny is important for your “image”. It is no secret that eating healthy will keep you in good shape. However, I see a different reason why it is important to eat healthy.
Eating healthy has many different benefits that come along with it. One of these benefits is to give you more energy. When eating healthy, working or attending school, and working out you need as much energy as possible. Healthy foods give you nutrients that keep you awake and energized. More importantly eating healthy can save you money you might spend on hospital bills. Keeping your heart healthy means living a longer life. All of these aspects lead to a higher levels of productivity and even organization.
Any swimmer will tell you that at one point or another during their swimming career they had to do morning practices and double days. Practices, in the morning, usually start around 5 or 6 a.m. and last about two hours. Then you attend school and go back for another challenging practice before going home to do homework. After having this schedule for a while, you and your body get adjusted to it which makes it easier, just as with any other busy schedule. However, with all the extensive exercise, school, and having a life at home, it is key to you make sure you have as much energy as possible and in addition, you are keeping your body healthy. Lack of energy can lead to laziness, shortness of breath, exhaustion, and much more. I am not saying that I do not love an unhealthy snack every now and then but, I can see a difference in my health when I start to deviate off my regular healthy eating schedule.
There are many challenges that come along with eating healthy. I find myself being tempted all the time by unhealthy food. This is why I am constantly searching through the Internet, friends or family, and magazines for healthy recipes. Make sure to check back to my blog so I can share some of these recipes with you!!
