You are what you eat!
Now I really believe that beauty is more than skin deep. It is also what you put inside your body. The saying ‘you are what you eat’ is probably the truest statement we all have ignored. I’m going to re-explain what we all already know but hopefully… maybe I can help someone that needed to hear it how I said.
Now humans are Heterotroph. That means that we consume energy from other living beings because we cannot photosynthesize sunlight. We all know that all energy comes from the sun. So plants are able to actually ‘metabolize’ the energy that is in the sunlight. They’re called Autotrophs. Then an animal comes and consumes the plant and consumes the energy the plant got from the sun.
Now we know that we need NUTRIETS and ENERGY to stay alive. Nutrients are constantly being recycled… Now what are nutrients?? Really and truly? They’re simply just organization of some Nitrogen atoms and Carbon and oxygen and so on so forth. What or where is the energy from? From the BONDS that hold these atoms together.
So what we do is we eat another animal or a plant then our bodies add water to break down the ‘food’ and break each molecule apart to absorb the energy that HOLDS these atoms together and use the single atoms as our nutrients for cell function. Now if we are not feeding our bodies the proper amount of a MORE effective molecule (or combination of atoms) then we simply have absorb energy but not given our body the nutrients to FUNCTION properly. This is for cell growth, cell renewal and repair…everything. So literally we take the atoms from the food and rearrange it so it becomes US. We need to give our bodies the proper amount of better molecules to rebuild a better us. We need to eat the right things to give our bodies the proper weapons to sustain ourselves… So our bodies can function correctly.
Now I know that was pretty wordy…but I hope I made it a bit clear and hope everyone will try and make diet changes for the better.
