How to stay fit & healthy?

Understand the mechanism

How to stay fit and healthy?

Fatigue is a major problem in the modern world! All generations are affected: adults, over 50s and even children. This is because contemporary life makes increasing demands on our already overworked bodies (stress, food imbalances, multiple pollution, life pressures, etc.) and our food provides us with fewer and fewer of the essential nutrients we need to cope with our “daily biological challenges”.
The question arises: how can we stay fit and healthy? First we need to understand the mechanism.

The

fitness mechanism

In general terms, our body uses energy to walk, run, speak, garden and any other physical or intellectual activity.

Energy is therefore the body’s fuel. But where does this energy come from?

To feel fit and healthy we need essentials nutrients (vitamins, minerals…). They don't provide energy directly but are crucial to the cellular reactions that produce energy, for example:
 

Vitamin C helps to reduce fatigue and tiredness
Vitamin B contributes to normal energy yielding
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of body cells from oxidative damage. 

In most cases, our body is incapable of synthesising these essential nutrients. This is why they have to be provided in our food. When there is a deficiency of these elements in the body, fatigue occurs and we no longer feel fit and healthy. The body’s balance is no longer preserved!

Have a light meal in the evening so as not to overload your digestion system. If you feel hungry in the afternoon, avoid sugary foods which, being difficult to digest, cause tiredness. Eat fresh or dried fruit instead.

Have a diet richer in complex carbohydrates

Have a varied diet and give priority to foods with high complex carbohydrate content such as bread, rice, potatoes, pasta, cereals and vegetables. Complex carbohydrates improve the body's fat burning and are high performance foods. It is also important to eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

Energy needs vary depending on individuals. We may be looking for a solution to general tiredness, occasional slumps or a rebalancing treatment for total energy recovery.
