Energize Your Life With Healthy Eating Habits
Although healthy eating habits may be hard to maintain in today’s world, the importance of being healthy keeps me on track. In a world dominated by soda and sugar, it can be hard to make the right decisions. I do my best to not only keep myself on track, but my friends as well. Many things motivate me and my peers to maintain healthy eating habits, like having more energy, having more self-confidence, and staying out of the doctor’s office!
One of the biggest motivators to keep healthy eating habits is having more energy. Every movement of the human body requires energy, and without the energy the body gets from healthy fats and proteins, it is useless. The average human needs about 2,500 calories a day, but it isn’t as simple as it may sound. For instance, eating 2,500 calories worth of junk food may satisfy your sweet tooth, but the kind of energy it gives you is short-lasting and can potentially hurt your body’s organs.
Here's an example: If Johnny eats 2,500 calories worth of french fries, every day, the unhealthy fats and grease contained in the fries will begin to build up as plaque in the walls of his heart. This could lead to many long-term health problems, such as heart attacks and stroke.
Not only do bad eating habits pose immediate threats, but could hurt you in the long run too. However, if Johnny eats a well-balanced diet of 2,500 calories comprised of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and proteins, his body will thank him with health and lasting energy.

This energy can be transferred into an even healthier lifestyle if put towards productive habits like working out at the gym, or taking a run around the neighborhood. When this energy is used to keep a healthy lifestyle, you will find that not only will you feel better, but look better too! Self-confidence is an added bonus to having healthy eating habits.
With these positive eating habits in mind, your weight loss goals will seem easier to achieve than ever. With more self-confidence, you’ll find that working out may even become fun!
By keeping healthy eating habits, it begins a cycle of positive habits that feed off one another to create a happier, healthier lifestyle. Even though it may seem difficult to maintain these healthy eating habits, the benefits outweigh the original sacrifices. Happiness itself can be the ultimate motivator in keeping a long-term healthy lifestyle.
