Every Meal Triggers Inflammation

Every meal you eat sets off a cascade of physiological processes. That it varies greatly between individuals is no surprise. According to Science Daily, a healthy body’s response is to activate the immune system but this goes haywire in obese individuals. The inevitable consequence is uncontrolled inflammation and conditions such as diabetes.

Inflammation is a common thread that links a wide array of health problems. Diet accounts for about 80 percent of the health benefits you reap from a healthful lifestyle, and keeping inflammation in check is a major part of these benefits. It's important to realize that dietary components can either trigger or prevent inflammation from taking root in your body.

Trans fat and sugar, particularly fructose, will increase inflammation, eating healthy fats such as animal-based omega-3 fats found in krill oil, or the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) will help to reduce them.

Replacing processed foods with whole, ideally organic, foods may automatically address many health concerns, especially if you eat a large portion of your food raw. Equally important is making sure you're regularly reseeding your gut with beneficial bacteria. Ideally, this can be accomplished by adding a variety of non-pasteurized traditionally fermented foods to your daily diet.

To help you get started on a healthier diet, I suggest following my free nutrition plan, which starts at the beginner phase and systematically guides you step-by-step to the advanced level. Preparing your own food may sound time consuming but the health benefits are immense. The convenience and price of processed food is entirely illusory. You can either pay the farmer now or pay the doctor later.
