Super Healthy Food for Busy / Low-Energy People
A couple weeks ago my dad found out that he has heart disease and probably needs a triple bypass surgery. In addition, he is overweight and constantly has kidney stones.|
Then, a couple days ago, I had a bad scare with my mom. She found a lump in her breast. Thankfully, it turned out to be benign. But it really got me thinking about my work in this community, how to find a healthy diet.. and how much a diet can help with cancer.
Add to that.. I took classes this summer semester that kept me insanely busy and I ate fast food every other night, the most junk food I have eaten sequentially in my whole life. I don't even want to know how much weight I might have gained.
Instead of low calories, I am browsing sites trying to find a low-carb diet that is healthy in it's own right, possibly more veggies and less meat. I am going to try to find out about the repercussions of low carb high protein diets on heart health and cancer.
