We know, easier said than done, but it is very important. According to the World Health Organization cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number 1 cause of death globally: more people die annually from CVD than from any other cause. Most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented or delayed by addressing behavioral risk factors including unhealthy diet and obesity.
Eating healthy is important not only for people looking for weight loss, but more importantly for overall health and chronic disease prevention. The golden rule 80% food 20% workout is true especially if you are trying to lose weight. Healthy eating is key to a healthy lifestyle.
Be conscious of the quality of food you are ingesting. Not all food is created equal. There is enough research that shows the benefit of eating organic (less to no exposure to chemicals and fertilizers) and minimally processed foods (studies show link to certain cancers).
A lot more research is being done on plant-based diets and the studies are astonishing, specifically relating to cardiovascular disease (CVD).
