The Peoria Chiropractor Clinic of Dr. Justin Tuttle wants to remind you, it matters what food you put into your mouth. There is no question about it, we live in a very fast paced world. Convenience has dictated what our food choices are, and now more than ever convenience wins. From the surplus of fast food restaurants to the quick snacks that we grab and go, we often pay little attention to what we put in our mouths.
In a recent study a resounding 57% of Americans eat at least one meal per day outside of the home. If you think about it, you will probably find this applies to you—grabbing a pastry and coffee for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, or meeting colleagues after work for appetizers and drinks.
After all, we live in a fast-paced, modern world and we just don’t have time to spend in the kitchen, right? So what does this mean to the average American? It means that the majority of us are getting additional sodium, fat, sugar, and calories. Over half of Americans are overweight, one-third of Americans are obese. So what’s the alternative? Truthfully, it doesn’t have to be that hard.
In our fast-paced world, we have lost sight of the things in life that truly nourish and balance our bodies, such as slowing down, eating a home-cooked meal and spending quality time with loving people. Eating consciously and making simple lifestyle changes will create positive results and release you from the endless cycle of dieting and inflammation in your body.
There are no quick fixes in life to take care of health and wellness issues. Good nutrition and exercise take thought and reflection as they are major factors that can make a difference in the incidence of many diseases.
So don’t take eating for granted. Changing your eating habits may seem difficult, however, even small changes will produce significant results. Being conscious of where your food comes from, how it is produced, and how it affects your body makes a huge difference in your overall health and well being.
Our Peoria Chiropractor Clinic can make a difference in your life! We are interested in your long-term health and wellness, not just a quick fix.
