Fuel your body with what it’s designed for!
Your body is designed to eat food that grows, the more organic the better. Many foods have manufactured ingredients that are not designed for your body and can cause problems with repeated consumption such as increased pain and inflammation with too much sugar.
However, most of us find it difficult to say no to junk food, there’s always something that we just can’t resist. If you're not giving your body the right fuel, then it will not perform properly and different parts will gradually decline in function causing disease. It goes without saying that a healthy balanced diet is good for us, but it’s not always easy to stick to.
