-- As a radio DJ who spends most of his life on air, Ron Zilberbrand
still makes room for a healthy diet, which is why he promotes a recent article
in The Huffington Post that highlights superfoods everyone should eat every day. Zilberbrand is someone who lives life on the edge, but he also knows the value in a little discipline, especially when it comes to his diet. "Don't get me wrong, I like a party as much as the next guy," he said. "But you don't have to wreck your body to do it. You can rock out and still stay pretty healthy."
In order to maintain a healthier diet, Ron Zilberbrand recommends eating leaner. "Despite some diet claims, you can eat meat and still eat healthy," he said. "Just seek out leaner meat options when you can. Chicken has less cholesterol than red meat, and fish is even healthier. Grill, roast and bake rather than fry whenever possible." He also advocates eating local. "Get your food from farmer's markets if readily accessible," he said. "Large-scale industrial foods may be cheaper, but meat and produce from smaller-scale localized farms are less likely to contain unhealthy hormones and chemicals."
The article points out that the old adage "you are what you eat" is only partially true - "You are also what your genetics predispose you to be - what you put into your bodies clearly does have an impact on our health and overall well-being. And while some diets may promise a magic bullet to healthier aging, there are a few basic food rules that from which we really shouldn't stray." The article emphasizes that drinking plenty of water is crucial, because it "flushes toxins out of our vital organs and carries nutrients to our cells." According to the Mayo Clinic, individuals must replenish their water supply for their body to function properly, consuming beverages and foods that contain water.
The report also states that green vegetables, such as kale, is the new superfood that should reside on everyone's table: "Kale is low in calories and high in calcium, vitamins A, C and K. It's also high in antioxidants, all of which make it the current sweetheart veggie." Ron Zilberbrand adds, "If Kale isn't your favorite, try spinach, Swiss chard, broccoli and asparagus."
The article mentions that fresh rather than highly processed is always the way to go: "There are processed foods and then there are processed foods. Minimally processed foods - like bagged spinach, cut vegetables and roasted nuts - are often just pre-prepped for convenience. At the other end of the processing spectrum are frozen and pre-made meals like microwaveable dinners and frozen pizza. Read the labels, and if you can't pronounce some of the ingredients, think twice about eating them. Most canned vegetables, soups and sauces are preserved by adding sodium." Ron Zilberbrand further encourages people to add nuts to their diet and to consider eating flaxseed, one of the most powerful plant foods that are rich in plant-based Omega-3s.
