We hardly realize that we treat our body like a garbage dump whenever we overeat, eat left overs or consume food high in calories. We do dump into our stomach a lot of food our bodies don't really need. Although we can't see what's happening inside our stomach, it is certainly a huge strain on the digestive system when it's loaded with unnecessary food. The proof lies in how sluggish, tired, sleepy or lethargic we feel after eating heavy meals. Try to take foods in natural form (salads and fruits), have your vegetables steamed or grilled; your lean meat/fish/chicken baked or grilled and use less oil, less salt and less sugar. This makes our body function at it's optimum, giving us the right energy and concentration to go about our activities. Our body is a divine instrument through which we experience the world. So like any other instrument, it needs to be in good order. Too much oil, salt, sugar, red meats, processed foods, junk foods and excess of carbohydrates makes the body susceptible to lifestyle diseases and endless suffering in the long run. Frankly...no one wants to be sick. Wouldn't it be great to have a healthy body not just in our youth, but in our middle age and old age? Through conscious food choices, drinking plenty of water and getting enough exercise, experience the joy and music of life through a healthy body.
