Advantages of a low carb diet

As Americans are learning more and more about health and nutrition, it is important to continue to educate people about healthy eating habits. Health educators, healthy experts and nutritional experts have a wonderful opportunity to continue the wave of momentum that have begun to take hold in the mainstream media. This is due in part to the huge success of TV shows like DR OZ, which are devoted specifically to educate people on healthy eating and healthy diets. One area that needs more focus is Not the What, When, and How, but rather the Why. Americans need to understand why fast foods, excessive barbequing, high calorie foods, and high carbohydrates foods are very detrimental to their health. This type of health education is particularly needed in the African-American communities that are experience healthy problems of epidemic proportions. For example, research shows that in the African-American communities, there is a very high rate of Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, Arthritis and Auto-immune diseases. This is largely due to excessive barbequing, fast foods, eating outs at restaurants, which contain highly acidic food. Those types of food are very dangerous because they are highly acidic and causes a lot of havoc on the body. High acidic levels are often found in people that have developed tumors and cancer cells. Ironically, this is why a low carb diet consisting primarily of fruits and vegetables are the best diets to have. THey provide the nutrients that the body cells need, without any of the bad stuff that the cells don't need. Understanding that fact is very critical to raising awareness of healthy eating choices. In terms of healthy eating choices, there are some very essential foods that need to be taken on a daily basis. Here is the list: 1) Cantaloupe Cantaloupe is extremely beneficial to the heart, because it has special nutrients that cleans food residues in the body as well as toxins in the arteries. It also help to strengthen the heart tissues. A good metaphor to use here is that cantaloupes blends well with the heart tissues 2) Bananas This one is a personal favorite. Bananas are extremely rich in potassium. Using bananas as the source for daily potassium eliminates a lot of hassles you would have to go through to find sufficient potassium for your diet. 3) Milk and Cereal This one is so basic, yet very beneficial for maintaining a good heart. With an early breakfast of cereal, you have provided a majority of the recommended daily consumption of Vitamin A and D, as well as Fiber and Riboflavin. Those are important for replenishing vitality and energy to the cells. 4) Lettuce or plant based food such as Sprouts Lettuce is often underestimated and underappreciated in our diet, but it is very important for our health. Not enouh study has been done on lettuce and plant based leaves in my opinion. There is no doubt that it is critical to human health. Lettuce (1 cup chopped) has 70% of the daily recommended values of Vitamin A There are others obviously, but these are just a few examples of fruits and vegetables and the effect they have on our health.
