Healthy Food Choice

Last Update: October 22, 2016

More than 2,500 years ago;

Hippocrates said: "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be the food."




Question:

" If a person does only one, which is better for his or her health?" DIET or EXERCISE

If you was a speculator involving diet, food and exercise; would you agree or disagree with Hippocrates saying?

Personal Opinion:

I would be more in favor for the one that will have a larger impact on heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Diet would be first in line than exercise and this also depend on a baseline diet.

Perhaps a vegetarian for example could be the reverse..

Question Need Answers: If a young person appeared to be in good health. How do you convince them to be put the above to practice for good health?

1. How do you convince them to switch to a plant base diet?

I just wanted to share this with the community because one of my post is on Healthy Food Choice. I just needed your opinion about diet and exercise

I would like to focus on veggie, good protein and fiber. which are all good source for a healthy diet.

I am also focusing on veggie diet without meat.

Most common disease caused by our lifestyle, which can best be treated with a veggie diet?

Explain your View!

People often say: There is no money in a cure.

How do you feel about this statement?

Have a great Weekend!Cheers and LaughterLouisab

You have some great questions, now I will be thinking all day on this because a healthy young person would not want to exercise as much so how do you explain to them to eat healthy, and stay fit.

Mike,
Today it's the young healthy ones that are health conscience. Most of them are turning into vegean's by the dozen. One the other hand they are the one's that are running a mile or so to keep fit.
You know, Mike I don't think it would be to difficult to explain it to them.
Hey it's always nice to converse with you.

Obesity has now reached epidemic proportions in many parts of the western hemisphere, with the US being labeled "The Fat Capital Of The World" and the UK "The Fat Capital Of Europe", yet there are some European countries, like Italy, Spain, and Portugal, who have far lower incidences of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than the UK.

Many health experts and CVD specialists put this down to what has become known as the Mediterranean Diet: Olive Oil instead of saturated fats; fruit, vegetables, nuts and legumes; seafood and small amounts of white meat, with very little red meat. Studies and research have also shown that the Mediterranean Diet can be more effective than statins in helping to prevent CVD.

Hi Louisa
I've recently lost over 22 pounds in weight with a combination of diet and exercise. I think both have been equally necessary to my success.
Good luck with your health goals.

Totally agree. Big Food and Big Pharma have no interest in the health of the average person.
