Here’s twenty reasons to eat healthier immediately.
It’s not about knowing about it, it’s the
reason for doing it.
Check this out.
Everybody knows that they should eat healthier
but sometimes you need a reason to do that
or reason to take action.
This is Dr. Jason West and we’re going to
go over the 20 reasons to start eating healthier
Reason number one to eat healthier is, it
fattens your wallet.
When I initially say that, people would say,
“Wait a minute.
It’s harder, it’s more expensive to eat healthier
But really what happens is, there’s are toll
road going down life.
There’s a doctor on this side and there’s
a grocer on this side and if you invest into
the grocer and pay a little bit more at the
beginning, what happens, you save gobs of
There’s this research that just came out,
for every dollar that you put into eating
healthier, it saves about $3 in future medical
So if you want to save money in the future,
have a healthier retirement and a wealthier
retirement, you start eating healthy now.
Reason number two to eat healthier is, an
apple a day does keep the doctor away.
And there is a study that came out of New
Zealand that showed that teenagers and adolescence
and people that just barely had gotten married,
the healthier that they ate, they had a more
feeling of calm, collected and cool as the
end side of the pillow.
Reason number three to eat healthier, is it
protects your bones.
Now one of the saddest things that I see in
the office is advanced osteoporosis where
you get the buffalo hump back and you get
the spine that starts to decrease, they call
it osteoporosis and it’s so sad, or when people
slip, either they break a hip or they fall
down or they fall down and break a hip and
if you eat healthier, it increases your bone
strength so you don’t have bone problems later
Trust me, you want to skip osteoporosis.
Reason number four to be healthier is it really
increases your sex hormone precursors.
Now, sex is one of those things that is essential
for life, it happens all the time and no one
really wants to talk about it and in my community,
which is really really religious, it’s kind
of the forboden topic but eating healthier
helps the sex hormone precursors so that
your testis and your ovaries and your thyroid
and your adrenal, all of those hormones associated
with health and vitality and stamina work
Reason number five to eat healthy now is
for women, it’s your PMS cure.
Now it’s not just an old wives’ tale, the
healthier that you eat with your green leafy
vegetables and when you sit down to eat, you
should have a rainbow of colors on your plate,
some reds, some greens, some purple, some
Skittles, Starbusts, and M&M’s don’t count,
it has to be plant-based material.
It decreases your cramps, it decreases endometriosis,
it helps to decrease PCOS, it helps on all
levels for female health to eat healthier
Reason number six to eat healthier now, it
gives you an ironclad immune system.
Now, immune system is the most important thing
that we do to ward off infections and a healthy
diet of green leafy vegetables, of colorful
foods, of Vitamin C, of garlic, of cayenne.
I just heard about a protocol, when someone
gets sick, they mix up some garlic, they mix
up honey and cayenne and it nips infections
in the bud.
You are what you eat and it gives you an ironclad
immune system to eat right.
Reason number seven to eat healthier is that
it helps your DNA.
Now I have this running joke in the office
where people come in and they are sick, and
I will say, “Well it’s kind of not your fault,
you just picked the wrong parents, you got
bad DNA from your mom, bad DNA from your dad,
you won the reverse lottery and some are
truth and some joking that goes along with
But if you have risk factors for MS or if
you have risk factors for osteoporosis or
peripheral neuropathy or eye disease, the
healthier you eat, the better your genes are
going to be.
Reason number eight to eat healthy is that
it helps to reduce irritable bowel syndrome,
leaky gut, malabsorption syndrome.
You are what you eat or you are what you absorb
and healthier that you eat and reducing junk
food and trans fats, the better optate that
you are, the better optate that you have for
your GI system, which means, all around you’re
healthy, you have energy, vitality, stamina
and you decrease brain fog.
Reason number nine for eating healthier now
is it makes your future children healthier.
There’s a study that shows that pregnant moms,
they have high doses of Omega-3 fatty acids
have children that have higher IQ’s than moms
that don’t supplement with essential fatty
Reason number ten to eat healthier is, not
only will it make your kids smarter but having
the right types of seafood and the right types
of healthy fat boosts your own IQ and your
own ability to reason, to remember things,
to not forget your keys, to not forget people’s
names and so if you eat healthier now, it
improves brain function.
Reason number eleven to eat healthier now
is the ultimate workout booster.
We talked earlier about why exercise is so
important but if you have the fuel for your
body, it actually amplifies all of the beneficial
effects of exercise.
Reason number twelve to eat healthy now is
that it chills you out.
It’s a natural calmative.
if you want to exacerbate your problem, if
you have an anxiety, if you’re keyed up, or
you’re having a really tough day, one of the
worst things you can do is increase your sugar
and your caffeine intake, your energy drink
or caffeinated drink, if you instead have
a green tea or green smoothie, it actually
helps you to relax an you will be able to
manage your fluctuating emotions.
We all go like this in the day, we want to
make sure that our foods are making us go
Reason number thirteen to eat healthier is
it delivers a healthy skin.
Now your appearance and how you feel about
yourself is so important.
When people have psoriasis or skin blemishes
or skin acne, it really has an effect, not
only on them but also their inner circle and
the more that you like yourself, the more
you can contribute and create the world and
to live your sole purpose.
Number fourteen reason to eat healthy now
is it really helps your sex drive.
People that are having consistent sex relations
are happier, healthier and live longer than
people that don’t.
Reason number fifteen to eat healthier now
is it really helps insomnia.
This is such a huge health care problem, when
people can’t shut off, they can’t rest, little
woodpecker syndrome on their shoulder “What
about this, what about this?”
Or they can’t get into rapid eye movements
sleep, they are not going to be healthier
and eating right helps to get you to restorative
Reason number sixteen for healthier now is
it soothes sore muscles.
Muscles need fuel to function, if you use
up fuel and you don’t have healthy building
blocks, what happens when we build up too
much lactic acid, we get sore muscles and
eating healthy now prevents sore muscles.
Reason number seventeen to eat healthy is,
Eating healthy gives you energy and energy
is so important not only for you being able
to accomplish everything you want to do in
life and your to-do list, and this is an unrecognized
medical diagnosis but I really believe that
the reason why people get sick is they run
out of energy.
And what happens when they run out of energy,
they borrow proteins, they borrow amino acids
and vitamins and minerals and fats from the
tissue, thinking they’re going to pay it back
when they get it through their diet, and if
you’re not eating right, you can’t pay it
back and it’s a robbed Peter to pay Paul.
Your whole body goes downhills so to improve
and to increase your energy levels, I think
that’s the number one step into preventing
and correcting chronic disease.
Reason number eighteen to eat healthy is because
it reduces cravings.See, the reason why people
have craving syndrome where they will go out
or have some candy or they’ll have some soda,
or some caffeine or something is because their
body is looking for something and if you’re
eating healthy and alive foods and colorful
foods, your body has those vital nutrients,
it has amino acids, it has the healthy carbohydrates
to run your system and you’re not going to
go out snack on things if you’re eating healthy.
Reason number nineteen for eating healthy
now is it makes you faster.
A faster runner, it makes you enjoy exercise
more, it gives you the building blocks to
really go out and use your body and if you
don’t use it, you lose it and then your body
starts to break down, if you’re eating healthy,
you’ll be more inclined to use the body the
way it’s supposed to and you’ll have a healthier,
happier, and more productive life.
Reason number twenty for eating healthier
now is that it helps you to win at life.
There’s a couple of really interesting studies
where we fed kids marshmallows and we fed
them healthy snacks and then we had them do
exercises and we had them do brain games and
the people that ate healthier performed almost
at least 10% increased grade rate of those
What that means instead of being B students,
if you’re eating healthy, you’re going to
be an A student.
There’s another study that shows that kids
that were resistant to junk food actually
ate healthy snacks versus marshmallows and
I actually had a much higher ACT and SAT score
than those that don’t.
So if you’re eating healthy, particularly
if you’res a parent and you’re helping your
kids eat healthier, it is going to allow them
to win at life.
