We are often told to eat healthy foods but what is a healthy food? In reality foods that are healthy for some are very bad for others, and it is up to you to work out which foods make you feel good and which ones make you feel bad. As I mentioned earlier when you eat, food is broken down in your mouth and then your stomach. It then makes its way to your intestine where the smaller useful parts of the food are absorbed into the blood stream. When your digestive system is working properly any toxins, bad bacteria, or undigested food particles shouldn't be able to get through the small holes in the intestine's wall. But when you eat a diet high in processed foods and drinks, drink alcohol, take medical or recreational drugs, or when you're under stress, the wall of your intestine often becomes inflamed and food particles which are not digested yet can make their way into the blood. Complete food particles should not be in the blood so your immune system then goes to work to break down the food particles and neutralize any toxins.
When we sleep our body begins to repair any damaged parts of our body and that's when it will build new muscle. When we exercise, we cause stress on our body so that it will begin to adapt to that stress and become stronger so it can handle more stress. When your body adapts to exercise it builds new tissue and increases the capacity of many of the systems in your body. All this happens when you shut your eyes! When the sun goes down, our bodies change from tissue breakdown mode, useful during the day to give us energy, into tissue building mode, necessary for the repair and building of new muscle when we fall asleep. From about 10.30pm until 2am your body does its entire physical repair using its stored energy. Then from 2am till when the sun comes up your body will focus on the mental repair. When you miss out on sleep during these periods you create more stress for your body, but you also limit the time your body can spend repairing your body and converting the benefits of the activity you did the previous day.
The biggest buzz word in nutrition has always been Calories. The thing dieters' fear most is also the thing that makes us work. So what is a calorie?

Along with exercise, diet is extremely important. However, these popular fad diets do nothing but harm you.
