Life is precious. Love yourself enough to take care of your health. Exercise. Eat well. Make time for self-care. Treat your body right because it is the only one you have. When you have no health, you have no life.
A good example is a fever. If you have a fever, the body is raising its temperature to fight off some danger. But what we do is, we go out and take something to reduce our fever, allowing the invaders to take over.
You can exercise vigorously and eat junk and get by. But you can't eat perfectly and not exercise. Look at many athletes today; they are human garbage cans. They eat anything, but they exercise so hard they burn it up. But why not exercise and put the right fuel in too?
If it tastes good, spit it out. All those cakes and pies and candy and ice cream -- all that terrible fast food stuff! I just bought a new corvette sports car ... would I put oil in the gas tank? Would I?
How do you build up your bank account? By putting something in it everyday.Your health account is no different. What I do today, I am wearing tomorrow. If I put inferior foods in my body today, I'm going to be inferior tomorrow, it's that simple.
There is no fountain of youth, What you put into your body is what you get out of it. You would not feed your dog a coffee and doughnut for breakfast followed by a cigarette. You will kill the damn dog.
I used to have terrible acne on my face: red, splotchy discoloration. And mucus - I was constantly blowing my nose. Then one day, this woman sits down next to me on a bus, and says, 'You're lactose-intolerant.' It all cleared up in three days. That changed my life. Doctors couldn't figure it out.
I would say me having to learn what healthy looks like as compared to what I thought was healthy before was extremely drastic and the only way that I was able to fully experience that was how my body reacted to it.
