Hello everyone. I am writing this post today to share some information that many of us know about, but few of us really put much stock in, and that is the food that we take in on a daily basis. My recent interest has mainly dealt with fish, but as you will note by the end of this post it is all foods that we should view with a critical eye in conjunction with our individual health goals. First off, let me preface my thoughts by saying that it comes as no surprise that we are all going to die no matter how anal we get about what we put in our bodies. It is all part of the aging process, and death is the pot of gold that will be claimed at the end of the rainbow we call life, but are you ready to claim that pot today? If you are, stop reading right now, because this post will be completely useless to you. Do we view life as just the stepping stone to death, or do we take the time to lead a healthy life, and enjoy the journey to the inevitable? Physical and mental health has always been a major issue with me, not simply because I want to stave off my own mortality, but because I've witnessed so many loved ones abuse their bodies excessively in a rush to reach their own. No one is handing out any certificates of appreciation for eating or drinking well, but those same accolades wont be reserved for those who live excessively either. What it really boils down to is a matter of choice. I guess what puzzles me about the human race is: We can conduct preventative maintenance on our cars, boats, and fishing gear, but we neglect the maintenance on the most important machine our human body We fail to realize that we are all wonderfully made, yet we make little effort to maintain that condition We refute religion or science so it gives us an excuse to indulge, but we quickly turn to religion or science when we arrive at the breaking point I started off like many of you learning the five food groups, and eating those in moderation. Then as an adult I learned about taking those same groups, and breaking them down into proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. This was accompanied by learning the value of eating smaller meals more frequently in order to speed up my metabolism. Now, there is a science that speaks of eating food according to your blood type. Does this make any sense? Well, we are different from one another regarding the type blood we possess, so why wouldnt certain foods be beneficial for certain types? We all know that blood is the messenger that carries oxygen and nutrients all over the body, but what I didnt know was how certain foods will inhibit or slowly break down some systems in the body if they're not compatible to your type. In other words, whats good for me isnt going to necessarily be good for you even if its a food solid in nutritional values. This is some pretty interesting stuff to say the least, and those interested in staying healthy might want to cross-reference some of the information in your spare time.
