People have different body sizes and shapes, such as fat, muscular, slim, round, tall and short. However, body shape and size doesn’t always correlate with fitness. Somewhat overweight people may pass much thinner people in a marathon and some small people could be quite strong. Regardless of our shape and size, we should be able to maintain our fitness and it is defined as our physical active programs to maintain a good physical condition.
However, before achieving fitness; it is important to maintain healthy condition. Health is defines as a condition that’s free of disease and illness. Healthy people could also do many things well with joy, vigor and high spirit. This allows them to achieve fitness much more easily. Ideally, we should be both healthy and fit. People with good fitness have high lung capacity and good muscles performance.
Their digestive system is efficient and the immune system is very strong. Regardless of our age, we should aggressively and consciously seek out any information. We could find out proper ways to get treatments, healing and healthy diet.
In our attempt to achieve health, we should be aware of effects of free radicals. They are very unstable, high energy substances that can damage our healthy cells and DNA structure. Free radicals attack molecules by stealing some of the electrons, eventually modifying the chemical structure of our cells. Some cells can mutate and multiply very rapidly. This is a common situation where tumor and cancer may occur. We can negate free radicals by eating more antioxidants.
We should eat more substances that can reduce the oxidative damages, caused by free radicals. Common sources of anti-oxidants are plant-based foods, such as raspberries, blueberries and organic cacao. Another thing to consider is the alkalinity and acidity of our body. Our organs try to maintain the blood pH of our body at around 7.4. However, many things that we eat and drink are often under 7.0.
We stress our body by making it more acidic. It is believed that maintaining a slightly alkaline diet, especially if it is based on organic food may prevent cancer. Organic food shouldn’t contain traces of fertilizers, pesticide and other synthetic substances.
It is a good idea to eat more superfoods, which are believed to be the healthiest things in this world. Superfoods are very nutrient-dense foods and they contain more beneficial nutrients compared to standard foods. Nutrients in foods include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, bioflavanoids and phytonutrients.
Examples of superfoods are pomegranate, figs, acai berry, blueberry, pumpkin seeds, broccoli, spinach, green tea, avocados, goji berries, cacao bean and others. It is also a good idea to eat foods that contain more anti-inflammatory substances. There are many natural anti-inflammatory substances in foods and they can be found on garlic, foods with high omega-3, aloe vera, ginger, papaya and mangosteen.
We should consider eating external enzymes that can help our body functions. Papaya contains papain that can help the digestion of proteins in our body. Yogurt also contains some probiotics that can improve the population of good bacteria in our system.
