Being healthy means that you are functioning as you were intended to function, resulting in feeling energetic and capable of performing a wide variety of activities. But achieving that goal can be a challenge due to outside forces and your own destructive attitudes. Health comprises of mental and physical factors. Being physically healthy means that your body is functioning as it should, without pain, discomfort, or lack of capabilities. Causes of ill-health include injuries, disease, diet, stress and genetics. Also, poor cleanliness habits can result in illness or skin ailments.
Being emotionally or mentally healthy means that your mind and emotions are functioning as they should, without anxiety, depression or other malfunctions. Causes of mental ill health include physical disease, stress, genetics and mental abuse. For example, being constantly and unfairly criticized can affect your emotional well-being. Also, sometimes depression is caused by chemical changes in your body. In summary the benefits of being healthy are that the above examples of bad physical and mental health do not become part of you life, leaving you a balanced and a happy individual who loves living!
Everyone has a slightly different version of what healthy means to them. If someone were to ask what your goals were to be healthy, what does that entail for you?

Healthy also includes being active… as distinct from being ‘fit’. And I think it’s essential to be mentally sharp.
A healthy body and a dull mind isn’t a great combination. Finally, healthy to me includes a big dose of happiness, fulfilment, contentment…. a sense of purpose. bkmanda bkmanda Apr 03 2008 21:31 Member posts Member groups Send message #2 Quote | Reply I second gi-jane. Its a balanced life stlye with realistic limits. Like I love butter pecan ice cream and I do eat it once in a while, and I even splurge sometimes, and either way I think its fine once I’m still trying to eat a balanced meal, and working out regularly. jackass admins won’t delete pgeorgian Apr 03 2008 21:34 Member posts

When comparing low glycemic index (GI) breakfasts to high GI breakfasts eaten by 9- to 12-year-old children, research also shows that children who eat high GI breakfasts (sugary breakfasts) tend to eat more at lunch. What makes a good breakfast for children? An egg, a slice of whole grain toast with nut butter, a piece of fruit and a glass of low-fat milk is one example of a good breakfast. Tofu, lean meat and whole grain cereals are also good choices at breakfast. The protein and fiber from the whole grains will keep your child satisfied until lunch time.
Try to avoid giving your child sugary breakfast cereals, white-flour pancakes and syrup — all of which will leave your child hungry and tired half way through the morning. If your child tends to get hungry in the middle of the morning no matter what, send an apple, whole grain crackers, nuts and cheese snacks rather than sugary cookies or white-flour crackers. Most schools try to provide nutritious lunches for children, but it’s expensive and kids don’t always want to eat the healthier foods. Many schools offer fast food, greasy pizzas, French fries and other poor-quality foods alongside the usual lunch selections.
One high school in Appleton, Wisconsin replaced their regular poor-quality school lunches with healthy fresh foods at lunch with water as the main beverage. The changes resulted in improved behavior from the students and zero truancies. Teach your kids the importance of eating nutritious foods at lunchtime. Hopefully with your help they will choose healthier salads and vegetables instead of French fries, and water instead of soda. Another option is to send lunch with your kids. Hearty soups, salads, fruits, and sandwiches with whole grains can all be packed in insulated containers to stay hot or cold.
Even with a balanced breakfast and healthy lunch, a light after-school snack is nice to refuel a kid’s body before play or study time. A handful of nuts and an apple is perfect, or maybe a snack tray of vegetables and dips. Keep chips, sugary sodas, pastries and candy out of the house. As the Oxford study shows, sugary and high glycemic index foods just make kids hungrier. Children who eat nutritious foods may continue to make better food and nutrition choices when they grow up, while overweight children tend to continue their eating habits and become overweight adults.
Teach your children about nutrition. Here are some tips to help: Read over the different food pyramids and ask your kids to pick out some favorite foods from each food group. Have them help you plan a meal that includes a healthy serving of protein, a vegetable or two, and a healthy fruit for dessert. For young kids, make a chart to keep track of all the fruits and vegetables they eat (we need at least five servings of fruits and veggies every day). Snack time can be more fun if you try different recipes and snack ideas together with your kids.
Teaching your children to how to have a healthy diet will have a bigger impact if you set the example. Eat right, get some exercise, and make a healthy lifestyle a family affair.

StandUpGirl. com Teen Advice Ads Healthy Food to Eat Food Healthy Food Healthy Diet Healthy Foods Healthy Fast Food Restaurants Cafeteria food isn’t exactly known for being nutritious, but if you stick to a couple of simple rules, you can make it through lunchtime without sacrificing your health (or going hungry). Cafeteria Do’s Do eat a healthy breakfast every day. If you starve yourself (or just subsist on energy drinks) all morning, you’re more likely to binge on fatty snacks at lunch. Do get a piece of fruit with your meal.
It’ll satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you from craving soda or dessert. Do balance out your plate with some veggies, too. A fresh salad with a variety of ingredients is best. Skip the croutons and top it off with oil and vinegar instead of a creamy dressing like ranch. Do drink water. You should drink around 8 glasses of water a day, and lunchtime is a perfect chance to get a couple of those in (and a way healthier option than most other cafeteria beverages). Bring a water bottle to school and fill it at the fountain before lunch – it’s cheaper and better for the environment than buying bottled water.
Do check labels. Fruit juice sometimes has more corn syrup than fruit, and snack chips are often loaded with sodium and creepy-sounding chemicals. Opt for 100% juice and all-natural snacks without a ton of ingredients. Do try to bring a healthy snack from home. Before you leave for school, throw a piece of fruit, a granola bar or a bag of carrot sticks into your backpack. It’ll save you money, and it’ll force you to be healthy in the face of all those unhealthy options at school. Cafeteria Don’ts Don’t skimp. Eating healthy is not the same as eating less.
If you don’t have enough at lunch, you’ll just be setting yourself up for major food cravings a couple of hours later. Don’t pick pepperoni. It’s high in fat, sodium and cholesterol. Opt for pizza topped with veggies or plain cheese. Or better yet, skip the pizza altogether and get a sandwich. Don’t get nachos. The chips are fried, and that neon orange cheese stuff is packed with fat but no nutritional value. Go with whole wheat pretzels or baked potato chips instead, and get your cheese fix from string cheese, cottage cheese or a couple of slices of cheese on a sandwich. Don’t get dessert right away.
If you get it, you’ll eat it. But if you hold off on buying anything till you’re done with your meal, you might decide that you don’t want anything anyway. Don’t drown yourself in soda. Those little bubbles might fill you up, but all that soda has some ugly side effects. Go with water, club soda, milk or 100% fruit juice instead. Don’t try to be perfect. Everyone deserves a chili dog and fries now and then. Just be sure to balance it out with fruits, veggies and a healthy dinner later on. Summary Teenagers need to consume a healthy diet that is high in fruits and vegetables, and rich in nutrients like calcium and iron.
Teenagers can do a lot to improve their diet, eat healthy meals and snacks, and maintain a healthy weight. Share this article Email this article Add link to social media Facebook, Myspace, Twitter Download this article PDF text ; pictures for sharing ; saving Good nutrition is essential for everyone, but it’s especially important for growing teenagers. Unfortunately many Australian teenagers have an unbalanced diet. From the 2007 Australian National Children’s Nutrition and Physical Activity survey, teenage boys and girls aged 14 to 16 consumed only half the recommended serves of fruits and vegetables per day.
One in four adolescents buys unhealthy takeaway food every day or even a few times a day. If you eat takeaway food regularly, you are more likely to put on weight than if you eat fast food only occasionally. Don’t despair! It doesn’t take a lot of effort to change your eating habits. A few simple changes will make a huge difference. You’ll feel better, manage your weight and even save money! Junk food is poor fuel for your body About nine in 10 teenagers eat junk food every day. This might be fizzy drinks and high-kilojoule snacks like potato chips. However, your body can’t run properly on inferior fuel.
Compared to home-cooked food, junk food (which includes fast food) is almost always: Higher in fat, particularly saturated fat Higher in salt Higher in sugar Lower in fibre Lower in nutrients such as calcium and iron Served in larger portions, which means more kilojoules. While a mid-life heart attack might seem too far away to be real, it may surprise you to know that you could have health problems already. A poor diet can cause weight gain, high blood pressure, constipation, fatigue and concentration problems – even when you’re young. Eating tips to improve your diet Small changes can make a big impact.
Try these tips: Cut back on fizzy sugary drinks. Go for sugar-free versions. Even better, drink water instead – try adding a slice of lemon, lime or orange. Keep a fruit bowl stocked at home for fast and low-kilojoule snacks. Eat breakfast every day so you’re less likely to snack on junk food at morning tea. A fortified breakfast cereal served with low-fat milk can provide plenty of vitamins, mineral and fibre. Other fast and healthy options include yoghurt or wholemeal toast. Don’t skip lunch or dinner either. Help with the cooking and think up new ways to create healthy meals.
Make those old family recipes lower in fat by changing the cooking method – for example, grill, stir-fry, bake, boil or microwave instead of deep frying. Reduce the size of your meals. Don’t add salt to your food. Don’t eat high-fat foods every time you visit a fast food outlet with your friends. Many of the popular fast food chains now have healthier food choices on the menu. Change your meeting place. Rather than meeting up with your friends at the local takeaway shop, suggest a food outlet that serves healthier foods such as wholemeal rolls with vegetable fillings or sushi.
Change the way you think about food There are lots of myths about healthy food. Don’t make food choices based on false beliefs. Suggestions include: Compare the prices of junk foods against the price of healthier food options to see that ‘healthy’ doesn’t have to mean ‘expensive’. Experiment with different foods and recipes. You’ll soon discover that a meal cooked with fresh ingredients always leaves a limp burger or soggy chips for dead. Try different ‘fast’ options like wholewheat breakfast cereal, muesli, wholemeal bread, wholegrain muffins, fruit, yoghurt or noodles.
Don’t think that your diet has to be ‘all or nothing’. Eating well doesn’t mean you must be a health food freak. A good diet allows for treats occasionally. Change your eating environment Suggestions include: Lobby your school canteen for healthier food choices. Ask your school canteen to include a range of low-price healthy food choices. Help with the grocery shopping and choose fewer processed foods. Get involved in cooking at home. The Better Health Channel recipe finder may provide inspiration.
