Ever feel that you are spending countless hours exercising each week, but not making any progress? Research has found that regardless of how hard you are working out, high levels of physical activity can’t counteract the effects of a poor diet.
Australia’s ready-made meal delivery service Youfoodz partners with leading nutritionist Zoe Bingley-Pullin to uncover why eating a good diet along with exercising is important for our health.
Eating a good diet and exercising regularly sounds easy enough, but the fast-paced life we tend to lead can have adverse effects on our diets. When juggling not only work but friends and family, we often struggle to find the time to prepare and cook healthy meals, resorting to skipping meals or grabbing a quick bite to eat where we can. Whilst these quick food options seem convenient and satisfying at the time, they can offer an adverse benefit to our overall health.
“When we look at our health, a good diet is ultimately the foundation,” said Bingley-Pullin.
“Everything you eat will then be the building blocks for how your health responds, even if we dig deeper and look at epigenetics and genes we now know that our diet can be the key that can increase or decrease our chances of health complications.
“Exercise is crucial but the cumulative nature of a bad diet is more than just burning calories.
“When we look at our diet diversity, it’s critical and plays a vital part in a healthy gut. It’s how we eradicate toxins from our body and build our neurochemicals to help us have healthy regulation of our hormones.
“As we all know living in today’s fast-paced society it’s very easy to reach for unhealthy alternatives. Having well-balanced meals ready at hand from a meal subscription service like Youfoodz can take some of those pressures away” continues Bingley-Pullin
