It is a scientific fact that people who eat less, live longer.

Listen To Your Body

Studies reveal that approximately 70% of all illnesses come from over-eating.  This is a staggering statistic if you stop to consider that 2 out of 3 people in our society are overweight.

It has been proven again and again that if you feed any species more than it needs, it becomes fat and comfortable, but soon they die.   Yet if you feed them half of what they need, they are neither fat nor comfortable but they live to almost double the average age.

So it goes, half the food and double the age – double the food and halve the age.

Here’s some good advice, eat when your body tells you it’s hungry.  A lot of times what you think is hunger is actually dehydration, our bodies are about 70% water yet few people drink enough water each day.  So the next time you are hungry have some water first in case you are dehydrated.

Another suggestion is to eat smaller meals and stop as soon as you feel full.

Overeating is just a habit that comes from an emotional need rather than a real need. This adds extra stress to your physical and mental well-being and take years off the natural length of your life if left unattended. To live a long and fruitful life it is a small price to pay to be more conscious of what you put into your body.
