Natural Weight Loss
Your body is a complex organism with the ability to heal itself – if you just listen to it and respond with the right nourishment and care.
In spite of all the abuse our bodies endure – whether through exposure to environmental toxins, poor nutrition, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, or inactivity – they still usually serve us well for many years before signs of illness may start to appear.
Even then, with a little help, they respond and continue to function.
The human body is the greatest machine on earth.
Nerve signals travel through muscles at speeds as fast as 200 miles per hour.
The brain puts out enough electric power to light a 20-watt light bulb.
If your leg muscles moved as fast as your eye muscles, you could walk over 50 miles in a day.
According to scientists, bone is among the strongest building materials known to humankind.
Think of your body as being composed of millions of tiny little engines.
Some of the engines work in unison; some work independently.
All are on call 24 hours a day.
In order for the engines to work properly, they need specific fuels.
If the type of fuel given is the wrong blend, the engine won’t perform to its maximum capacity.
If the fuel is of a poor grade, the engine may sputter, hesitate, and lose power.
If the engine is given no fuel at all, it’ll stop.
The fuel we give our bodies’ engines comes directly from the things we eat.
The foods we eat contain nutrients.
These nutrients come in the form of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, water, amino acids, carbohydrates, and lipids.
It’s these nutrients that sustain life by providing us with the basic materials our bodies need to carry on their daily functions.
Individual nutrients differ in form and function, and in the amount needed by your body; however, they’re all vital to our health.
The actions involving nutrients take place on microscopic levels, and the specific processes differ greatly.
Nutrients are involved in all body processes, from combating infection to repairing tissue to thinking.
Although nutrients have different specific functions, their common function is to keep us going.
Research has shown each part of your body contains high concentrations of certain nutrients.
A deficiency of those nutrients will cause your body part to malfunction and eventually break down – and, like dominoes, other body parts will follow.
To keep this from happening, we need a proper diet and appropriate nutritional supplements.
Brain function, memory, skin elasticity, eyesight, energy, the ratio of lean-to-fat tissue in your body, and overall health are all indications of how well your body is functioning.
With the help of the proper nutrients, exercise, and a balanced diet, we can slow the aging process and greatly improve our chances for a healthier, pain-free – and possibly longer – life.
Come join me on my weight loss journey! I’d love to have you along!
