Food, one of the few words that excite many people every time they hear it, its like a little blessing in disguise on a rough day or just a place of relief and comfort on a good day.
Lately, i realized something about food and its impact on your body. Many people around the world love to enjoy food and they do it in many ways and its always awesome and amazing, but later on as you age those after food effects come back to haunt you the most.
Let’s take a small personal survey right now;
1. How many times have you ever googled your symptoms after you start to feel funny or sickish?
2. How many times do you ignored, what you found when it says it related to what you have eaten or your eating habit?
Well, whatever your answer may be… that definitely adds on to this growing fact that many only change their eating habits and food, once they diagnosed with something by the doctor.
“WHY WAIT TILL THE DOCTOR SAYS YOU SICK?”
Here are a few ways to enjoy your food while still taking care of your body.

Many people love the fried stuff, i mean anything fried is always amazing, but oil intake has bad effects on the body as you age.
