1. Drink Your Greens
One of the best things that you can do for your health is to start drinking green smoothies or juices.
Whenever you consume vegetables in liquid form, you are able to supercharge your body with vitamins and nutrients because your body is able to more easily absorb greater quantities of vegetables than you would if you ate them whole.
In addition to the obvious benefits of increased vitamin intake, green smoothies help to alkalize your blood which improves energy, reduces your chance of disease, and just makes you feel darn good.
2. JERF (Just Eat Real Food)
The health industry is full of conflicting advice on diet and nutrition, but at the end of the day, it comes down to this.
Just eat real food.
If it grew from the earth or can be hunted for meat, then you are probably good to go.
Stick to real food and let other people worry about the rest.
3. You Have to Reduce Inflammation
One of the biggest reasons for fatigue, health problems, and disease is chronic inflammation in the body.
Luckily, if you know what you are doing, you can drastically reduce inflammation and live a healthier and more vital life than you ever thought possible.
Simply by eating a whole food diet, eliminating junk food, and eating more plants and less animal protein, you will drastically cut back on inflammation and improve your health.
4. You Need to Eliminate As Much Stress as Possible
Stress causes your body to produce cortisol, which produces inflammation, which in turn produces more cortisol, resulting in a vicious cycle of stress and disease.
Sleep at least 6 hours a night, exercise only a few times a week, meditate, clean up your diet, and relax and your body will thank you.
5. Exercise in Moderation
Exercise is fantastic for you, however, it is a form of stress on the body, and the way that most people exercise is too much of a good thing.
If you really want to be healthy then you need to stay active, but limit stressful exercise like weight lifting and cardio to 3-4 times a week.
