While consuming fruits, vegetables and water every day is important, superior fitness can be achieved with high fiber foods and health drinks not found in typical retail stores.
Even if you could digest the recommended 25-35 grams of fiber in food and 8-10 glasses of water every day, you may not get the best nutrition available. Most people find this prospect hard to swallow, and give up quickly on ever reaching perfect health and fitness. It takes too much time, effort and energy to buy, prepare, and devour that much produce, and who can guzzle that much water every day without craving some flavor?
The good news is that there are now some very beneficial high fiber foods and health drinks, which are concentrated, so that small amounts help you reach those power numbers. You won't find these concentrated nutritional boosters on the shelves at your local grocery store, and certainly not in the refrigerator section of the convenience store.
We're not talking about so-called "enhanced vitamin waters" that are filled with fructose and isolated vitamins, or energy drinks boosted with caffeine and sugar. Instead, we're referring to naturally produced health drinks made from real whole food sources such as lemons, peaches and raspberries. These health drinks are loaded with natural antioxidants and complex carbohydrates that the body recognizes as being from nature. Your body understands how to process these natural drinks better than man-made chemically produced, artificial drinks being sold in stores. At the end of the day you achieve better results with these naturally beneficial products.
In addition to concentrated natural health drinks, high fiber foods are being sold in many different forms today. Of course, the best way to ingest fiber is to eat raw fruits and vegetables. The challenge, though, is how to eat 25-35 grams of fiber in five servings of raw fruits and vegetables every day. Fortunately, you don't have to consume mass quantities of plants to achieve the results that high fiber foods can offer for keeping your digestive system running smoothly.
There are now some natural fiber drinks available in tasty shakes that you can mix with water or other liquids for soluble fiber, healthy plant protein, complex carbohydrates and essential vitamins and minerals. Throw in a few frozen banana pieces or berries to mix with the powdered shakes and you are quickly on your way to the fiber and nutrients you need each day. Best of all, these fiber drinks taste good and contain FOS - fructooligasacharides, a pro biotic soluble fiber found in foods like garlic, onions or barley. Who wants to have garlic or onions for breakfast when it is easier to have a quick, tasty shake made with real strawberries or cocoa? That makes it so easy to get more essential fiber, protein, complex carbohydrates and natural antioxidants for breakfast than most people get all day.
Drinking diet sodas or high fructose, high caffeine and high sugar energy drinks to get fit is like lifting 12 oz cans of beer to build muscle up. Those types of drinks only tear your body down, while health drinks made from all natural ingredients give your body the nutrients it is crying out for to keep going strong. Water is good, but if you find it incredibly tasteless and boring to drink 8-10 glasses of plain water every day, look for some new ways to make your water wetter and better.
When you can drink a quart of water that contains natural antioxidants plus better taste and more benefits, why wouldn't you? It makes no sense to spend a dollar for a bottle of sugar water when you can spend the same to super boost that water with natural energy, fat flushing and anti-aging properties in health drinks that are truly all natural and actually taste good.
Again, we're not referring to loading up on caffeine and sugar, but enhancing your beverages with natural fruits and real whole foods from nature. It is so easy now to find these carefully produced, powerfully charged health drinks that you don't need to shop every health food store or grocery store. You won't find them there, but you will find them on the Internet at an online health food store. You have to step out of your comfort zone, change the way you think about nutrition, and change the way you shop for high fiber foods and health drinks.
Some people think juicing is the best way to get fiber and other essential nutrients from fruits and vegetables. However, many others find it difficult and disappointing to spend hours cleaning and preparing the piles of produce needed for a small glass of juice. That seems so old school, and while juicing may have been good for Jack Lalane, it is not necessary today in order to consume enough high fiber foods and health drinks for better results. Again, you just have to search the net for all natural high fiber foods and health drinks that are not sold in stores and you will find that there is an easier way to get complex carbohydrates, natural antioxidants and soluble fiber.
Changing my diet to a more contemporary way of eating high fiber foods while increasing the benefits of drinking water has worked quite well for me. I lost thirty pounds in the first month without even trying very hard, and I have easily kept that weight off for more than ten years with the same products.
I hardly ever shop at the grocery store and I get more nutrition for about three dollars from a quickly made, concentrated, all natural fiber drink than most people get in a week. It's so easy that once you find the keys to perfect health you will wonder how you ever lived without them, much the way we wonder how we ever lived without computers and cell phones. So, get out of the kitchen, get on the net, get your nutrition, then go out and live life to the max!
