Important choices re.what you drink ..

While the whole world is so busy telling us constantly about what is good to eat and what is not, they seem to be missing a piece in the puzzle...
 
Here's the piece...  What you choose to drink on a regular basis, is in fact just as important as the foods we eat.  Once upon a time  there were so fewer choices in both food and drink and so much less processed and refined foods.  The benefits of this were that  our human bodies were not so dangerously damaged and affected as they are today. Unfortunately today, society is plagued with individuals who are insulin resistant, leptin resistant, diabetic, or with metabolic X syndrome.  These disorders  are all a cumulative consequence of too much processed and refined foods and drinks. They have simply overloaded their systems so much with these choices that the body gives up functioning as normal and starts to retain weight and to malfunction. Therefore it makes it very tough for someone to lose weight easily. Drinking sugary and diet drinks is a  NO NO as it  aggravates the system even more -again fuelling it's decline. Caffeine too has an adverse effect, stressing the nervous system out to the hilt and again leading to a viscious and continuous cycle of dysfunction. 

So, my advice is that there are many drinks out there that may help  you to reach  your goals by helping the system into a state of recovery.  Chicory root  powder is a great substitute for coffee, nourishing the kidneys and liver and cleansing the system.  White Peony Tea is miraculous as a white tea that is extremely high in antoxidants and again helps the liver and kidneys and lowers blood pressure.  It also is said to calm the brain  helping with stress and anxiety. Herbal teas are great , in many flavours and very refreshing. And lastly, WATER both carbonated and still are a MUST and with a slice of lemon  lime or ginger in the morning really stimulate the body to  function at its best.  Try  to make these good choices when you choose the foods you are eating.  both are equally as important as each other and you will reap the benefits in how you look and feel ! :-)
