  • Consumption of Fruits and Vegetables is the Way to a Happy Life

It has been discovered that the consumption of fruits and vegetables is the perfect way to a happy and healthy life. One should increase one’s daily servings of these two natural food groups for an energetic and positive life.

Those individuals who eat fruits and veggies regularly tend to reap the benefits in terms of glowing health and happiness later on. The study which revealed this trend will be published in the renowned American Journal of Public Health soon. Besides warding off such diseases as cancer and heart attack, fruits and vegetables increase one’s happiness by several notches. 

The freshness of ripe seasonal fruits and vegetables is about as good as it gets. They come straight from the hands of Nature and are excellent for health and well-being.

The happiness factor was multiplied for each extra serving one ate per day. Thus as much as eight servings per day could be incorporated into one’s lifestyle with benefits accruing to the consumer.

Those who had an unhealthy pattern of eating mostly junk food and converted to eating eight portions of fruits and veggies per day would most likely reap the greatest benefits. This is a nutrition therapy of sorts. 

In fact, the level of self-esteem boosted would be equal to a person changing his status from that of a jobless loafer to an employed and successful member of a firm.

The effects were visible almost within the first 24 hours of starting this nutritional strategy. Over 12,000 people were chosen without any discrimination by the researchers.

They were told to keep food diaries and also received surveys to measure their psychological levels of life satisfaction. Within a bare minimum of two years of starting this natural regimen, they improved beyond recognition on all markers of physical and psychological health. 

While the eating of fruits and vegetables as a cure for cancer takes time to show its effects, the psychological pick-me-up tendency of this trend is almost immediate in its manifestation.

The typical citizen of Western Civilization eats an unhealthy diet of processed foods that clog up the arteries and later on cause several degenerative diseases.

This added benefit of staying upbeat and happy might be the very incentive needed to start consuming more fruits and veggies. The psychological perks are too many to resist such an ideal method of avoiding the blood sugar roller-coaster that the Standard American Diet (SAD) causes in its wake.

The antioxidants in the fruits and veggies are the best part of the deal since they help prevent free radicals from accumulating in the human body.
