These are the things I’ve been doing for years.
Sometimes I fail. But generally I try to do them.
1. Eat a dessertspoon of blossom honey on an empty stomach in the morning.
Because it boosts the metabolism. As I mentioned before, our colons must be empty in the morning. Otherwise, various bacteria increase in our intestines and we get sick over time.
Honey is antioxidant, antiseptic and cholesterol-free. It restores defense system. Getting rid of toxins, it helps having a healthier skin. Enables weight loss. Improves sleep quality.
It also quite beneficial for mental health and well-being. Honey calms nerves, provides relaxation and increases serotonin in the blood. It’s essential for psychological stability. Besides, eating honey improves mental abilities. Additionally, it’s beneficial for memory.
Thus, it provides the productivity through the day.
2. Drink a glass of water at 6 am and stay awake.
Drink water before you get your coffee. Rehydrate your body. It makes you feel energetic.
Simply, drinking water provides the same benefits as eating honey.
You can also drink your first glass of water in the morning with a little lemon squash or vinegar. This allows your body to be cleansed of more toxins.
We should drink enough water, but stop drinking one hour before our meals. If we drink water just before eating, the digestive juices in our stomach will drain away.
In addition, we should not drink water for two hours after meals to avoid sending food that has not been fully digested into our intestines.
If we are eating a dry meal, we can drink half a glass of beverage during the meal.
3. An hour after drinking water, eat fruit.
If we eat fruit before breakfast, we will get a lighter food first.
If we eat fruit half an hour before meals, we will meet our body’s sugar need. This helps us eat less.
Also, fruits take considerably shorter to digest. Therefore, fruits should be consumed before meals.
And keep this in mind; eating a pinch of salt while starting a meal creates a protective shield inside your stomach.
4. Eat two meals a day: Breakfast and dinner.
We care very much about nutrition. According to an ancient teaching, the cause of all troubles is satiety. It’s not the cause of just all the “illnesses”, but all the “troubles”!
When our body is not digesting, it repairs itself. So, our immune system steps in if we’re hungry. Having a fever or a headache when we are hungry indicates that our body is in treatment.
Make sure you don’t eat anything for about 10 hours after breakfast.
Don’t eat dinner too early or too late. If you eat too early, you cannot sleep because of hunger. If you eat too late, what you eat will disturb you all night long. Remember, digestion stops completely after 9 pm.
5. Avoid sugar, gluten and all packaged foods.
Today we probably all know that these are very harmful to health. But we may not know exactly what they are doing us.
Gluten is actually harmful to all of us, not just people with celiac disease. Because our digestive systems treat gluten like sugar.
Sugar increases harmful bacteria in the intestines, damages the digestive system and weakens the immune system. Makes you feel sluggish and hungry, causes tooth decay and increases the risks of obesity, heart disease, diabetes and also various forms of cancer. It increases stress, causes psychological instability, weakens consciousness, slows down brain functions and causes early aging both mentally and physically.
Prefer to eat fresh foods instead of packaged foods containing additives. If possible, prepare your own meals.
