Beauty is not only in the skin. It comes from within with the food we eat. It is time to look more closely at our meals, at those that contribute to everything that makes us beautiful.
In their desperate quest for slimness, women today are playing with poor nutrition. They often overtrain and under-eat and vice versa.
And they also misjudge what they eat. Most women do not understand the chemistry of food and try to judge it with wrong notions.
To feel good, you have to feed yourself properly. If you insist on consuming less than 1,000 calories a day, you will end up with protein deficiencies, such as dry hair and skin.
If we don’t eat enough calories, your body will convert its protein into energy, consuming the muscle tissues that give you shape and curves.
Here is a list of beauty-producing foods that you should start eating right away. They contain all the vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fibers needed to support your exercise program.
They will brighten your eyes, soften your skin, make your hair glow, and make your body more beautiful.
