A Better Nourished Body Means A More Resiliant Body
Life is busy for everyone and doesn't seemto stop. While September/October heralds Spring in the Southern Hemisphere, the Northern Hemisphere braces itself for Winter. Whether you're doing a Spring Cleanse or a Winter Warm Up, it's important to love your body and keep as healthy as possible.
Raw Food Health
Raw food health is all about optimising your intake of essential nutrients. Research into organic farming has shown that freshly picked, organically grown fruit and vegetables yield the highest nutrient value.
Each plant contains a unique combination of essential nutrients so your daily diet can be vastly improved by including a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables. Aim to cover the entire spectrum of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. A rewarding hobby is to start a home vegetable garden and reap the benfits of stress relief, some exercise and the satisfaction of eating your own organic vegetables.

Dehydration Causes Cravings
Food cravings are the downfall of many a weight-loss effort. Cravings can be a sign of dehydration rather than hunger.
As a strategy to drink more water, try spacing eight water breaks throughg the day to bring focus and calm cravings.
Have one when you wake up with a squeeze of lemon juice in. Fresh lemon juice is wonderful for gently cleansing the system. See more benefits to drinking water here.
Diet Tips - Fruit And Nuts Help With Weight Loss
Looking for a good weight loss tip? Mother Nature rpvides the best answers. Research has shown that consuming slightly larger portions of natural fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts has proven to help people lose weight. In a study of 120000 people over 20 years, Harvard researchers found that those who increased their consumption of fruit, vegetables, yoghurt, nuts and seeds automatically lost weight.
Will the extra spoons of yohurt help you shed kilos? Well it could. Yoghurt is rich in potassium which helps the body get rid of excess sodium thereby reducing water retention. The high fibre content of fruits and nuts slows digestion which results in fewer calories being eaten per day. These are good reasons to encourage your family to eat more raw, unprocessed health food.
