Part Time Healthy Eating

Evidence suggests that healthy eating can significantly reduce the risk of a number of diseases. A healthy high quality balanced diet is essential to a healthy lifestyle and is important for both mind and body. In addition, a healthy diet can significantly improve the ability to maintain normal body weight. However, one of the most important aspects of a high quality diet is the consistency of the intake of nutrients. Eating a healthy diet some of the time may improve health if normality is to eat a poor quality diet. However, it is unlikely to reap the same benefits that eating high quality foods consistently. This is highlighted by the fact that fructose is able to cause insulin resistance in rats within a few days of consuming it regularly. A week of eating sugar may therefore decrease insulin sensitivity significantly, and this is enough to significantly increase the risk of developing western lifestyle diseases. The trick to maintaining a healthy lifestyle is therefore to consistently eat high quality foods without cheat days or weeks off.
