The answer is yes, IF YOU FOLLOW MY 10 TIPS FOR IMPROVING YOUR OVERALL HEALTH (because healthy bodies don't like to carry excess baggage!)
TIP #8: Get Your 9-13 Servings a Day (OF FRESH, WHOLE, PRODUCE THAT IS!!!)
If there’s one thing I say literally hundreds of times a year it’s probably this:
Did you know that EVERY major world health organization (including THE World Health Organization!) now claims we should be eating 9-13 servings of fresh whole produce EVERY DAY just to MAINTAIN our health???
Remember the old “5-a-day” adage? Well even the conservative USDA now states that “More is Better.” And if you aren’t concerned about eating less calories but LOTS more vitamins and minerals than any other food group, consuming 9-13 servings a day can potentially ELIMINATE the need for synthetic fiber, vitamin, mineral, and enzyme supplements! And believe it or not, there’s a growing body of evidence to suggest that consuming MORE than the daily recommendation of vegetables and fruits improves health WITHOUT LIMIT…in other words, THE MORE VEGETABLES AND FRUITS YOU EAT, THE HEALTHIER YOU WILL BE, PERIOD!!!
Let’s face it folks, eating more fresh veggies and fruits just makes sense on every level…I could EASILY go on and on about all the scientifically-proven reasons why you should but I’ll just end the discussion quickly with this thought: No one EVER got sick or fat by eating too many carrots.
So go ahead and enjoy your 9-13 servings EVERY day (and if you’re stumped for ideas on how to fit ‘em all in, attend my next “Smoothie 101” or “Paleo Made Practical” workshops!) Your health AND YOUR WAISTLINE will thank you for it!
