More Fruits and Vegetables in Your Diet

The human body was designed to eat fruits, vegetables, and small quantities of lean meat, seafood, and poultry.

Today we eat few fruits and vegetables. Our bodies need them to maintain good health. Researchers have found that 50%+ of health problems are related to poor nutrition. The main reason for poor nutrition is our diet. There are a few other things contributing to poor nutrition we will discuss later, but your main remedy for poor nutrition is diet - eat more fruits and vegetables.

The Office on Women’s Health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recommends a nutritious diet. They state “Americans should make simple adjustments to their diet and avoid excessive portions. Increasing fruit and vegetable consumption is a central part of a healthier diet, and good overall nutrition lowers the risk of getting heart disease, stroke, cancer, and osteoporosis.”

Fruits and vegetables are naturally low in calories. That is why some call them “fat burning foods” or even “negative calorie foods”. While there are no “fat burning foods” or “negative calorie foods”, fruits and vegetables should make up a large portion of your diet to be healthy, slender, sexy, and more popular.

A few years ago a friend of mine told me the guys were constantly “hitting” on her, when they had not been before. She asked me why. The answer was obvious to me. This woman has physical attributes which attract men, and she had lost more than 20 pounds. She was then slender and sexy. So the guys flocked around her.

Other women who don’t have her particular attributes have noticed the same thing. If you are slender, the opposite sex is more attracted to you - you are considered more attractive. And I can tell you from personal experience that the same happens for men.
