Flexitarian Diet

The flexitarian diet is a plant-based diet that claims to reduce your carbon footprint & improve your health with an eating regimen that's mostly vegetarian but allows for the occassional meat dish.

This diet is the outcome of people who are adopting a more environmentally sustainable approach to their eating habits by reducing meat consumption in favor of alternative protein sources including nuts, beans, peas, and other legumes.

We see junk food in every store and fast food places in almost every corner of the city. Regardless of the individual item, both junk food and fast food products are generally easy to grab and bring with you.

The ease of storage and the rapid production of junk foods are major reasons why so many people eat junk food. The combination of availability and convenience is dangerous.

From 1994 to 2004, hospital admissions for anaphylaxis doubled. In children under five years old, it was five times higher over the same period, suggesting allergy in early life is increasing faster than in adults.

Getting consistently good rest will benefit everything from your immune system to your emotions.

Do just these two things:

  1. Be consistent with your evening routine each night. Get up at the same time every day, even on weekends. This will train your mind to fall asleep and stay asleep.
  2. Don't think or worry in bed. Your brain should associate bed with falling asleep. This means you should have a dedicated time and routine for problem-solving before bed.

Endorphins are our own personal drugs supplied to us by our body, without the addiction part. Opiates (the artificial, addictive drug) are not as effective or safe as endorphins, which provide us with a sense of well-being and pleasure simply by belief and anticipation, called the Placebo Effect.

Opiates are addictive while endorphins are completely non-addictive, due to the fact that endorphins are more easily broken down and digested by our body’s receptors, leading to non-dependence.
