In the winter months people tend to put on a few extra pounds, especially if you live somewhere cold like Chicago or New York. However there are plenty of reasons to eat healthy this holiday season other than to losing weight.Glowing Complexion
You are what you eat. Even if you have the perfect body, you still need that glow. Change your diet to a healthy and balanced diet with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and meat that are full with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients will provide that radiant glow.Increased Energy and Better Sleep
People that do not maintain a healthy diet might experience fatigue throughout the day. This is because an unbalanced diet can lead to poor sleeping quality or low energy and spirit. Start eating healthy so you can lower your consumption of coffee and energy drinks.Reduced Mood Swings and Anxiety
Foods with high sugar content and processed carbohydrates can be the reason why some people suffer from anxiety and mood swings. Try substituting your food to some healthier choice and notice the difference.Prevent Diseases Like Diabetes and Alzheimer’s
Studies have showed that diet and lifestyle habits have great impacts on the risk of developing diseases such as diabetes and Alzheimer's in old age. Even though there is no guarantee in life, you can still make a choice to prevent it when you can.
Start with a small step to change your life. For example, make your own smoothies instead of sugary beverages or take some time to prepare a fast and simple meal so you can cut down on processed foods.
