Let's Not Beat about the Beet!

After reading about the benefits of Beetroot Juice I have decided to incorporate it into my diet. Why? Well for a start its not called one of the Super foods for nothing.

I have been lazy in my food habits for a long time. And never really taken much notice of the fact that my body had got sluggish and I have suffered with stomach problems.

Recently I have had terrible backache, so I decided it was time to do something about my overall health. Then I read an article (see below) that blew me away.

And the one thing I noticed that the lady in question did, was take copious amounts of Beetroot juice.

So I thought, well its working for her, lets see how we go.

I started taking beetroot juice this week, and to be honest I didn't think I would like it, but actually I am beginning to love it! If you don't like the taste, it's a bit earthy, you can add fruit juice such as apple or blackcurrant.

Cranberry tastes lovely with it too, it takes away the veg taste.

The red coloring of Beetroot contains a chemical called betacyanin which is seen as an anti cancer for the colon.

It is also high in Silica which helps to utilize all of the calcium in the body that will strengthen teeth and bones.

This information is not just based on trial and error, it really does have scientific proof behind the study.

Beetroot juice will lower blood pressure within one hour of taking it! Can you imagine the implications of this to help keep your heart healthy?

It is also great for digestion, and boosting stamina by using the magnesium to boost oxygen levels and creating healthy blood cells.

Now does it sound like the perfect Super Food?

So Why Have I Decided To Start The Beetroot Diet?

To understand this, we have to understand our own health. Most of us forget just how fit and healthy we used to be. Over the years we have become slower, more sluggish and in some cases, downright lazy.

But of course this type of eating and feeling will become the norm. And as we grow older we get so used to it that it does feel like we have always been this way.

Then comes the aches and pains. Maybe unspecific illnesses that we can't quite put our finger on but we just don't feel right.

So what's the first thing we do? We run straight to the Doctors. We expect them to sort us out, give us a pill and then in a couple of weeks we will be back to normal. Whatever that is.

Aches and Pains

Recently, in fact over the last year if I want to be honest, I have been feeling 'not myself'. I have had stomach problems, bloating, eczema and even aches and pains. I have taken tablets, drank lots of water and so on but still I don't seem to be getting anywhere.

Then a couple of weeks ago I started to get a really bad back ache. Its just gone on and on, and it started to drive me insane.

I have done the exercises, sorted out my bed, and more importantly changed the chair where I sit to write.

Yes these things did help to a certain degree. But not completely.

Then I had a thought.

Beetroots For Blood Pressure


Can Changing my Diet Help?

So this got me thinking. Maybe a lot of my problems were caused by the food I was eating. From now on I am going to change my diet.

So, this is the first week of my new food regime. And would you believe it? I have been on it for three days now, and I already start to feel better.

And no, its not psychosomatic. For a start my stomach is no longer swollen. And more to the point, my energy is coming back and, drum roll please.....

My backache is nearly gone! So what have I tried so far?

I will update the daily Table chart as I go. I know most of you will think its too early to say that the food is helping, but its a bit strange to think that my backache and my stomach have both felt a lot better purely by coincidence.

So what's going on? Well for a start my stomach bloating is obviously caused by the food that I eat. That's a fact. It doesn't matter whether I am actually allergic to certain foods or not, which I don't believe I am. Its more to the point that leaving out stodgy food such as sausage rolls, yes my favorite! And other pastry or heavy foods is definitely going to help me.

We all need roughage. That's a fact. And eating stodgy food is just going to build up in your gut and make you feel sluggish. I have suffered really bad constipation in the last couple of years, mainly because of the food but also because I no longer go out to work so I am more stagnant so to speak.

Beetroots The Way To Go!

There are so many fad diets. Whether its to lose weight, or just change your health for the better. This one I had never heard of before. In fact I am the one putting the words Beetroot and diet together.

We shall see. So far so good. Its not the food that will let me down, its my will power. But I am determined to keep to this.

Why? Because I am getting older, and I want to stay as fit and healthy as possible. With my back aching so badly this last couple of weeks I started to get scared. Is this it? Am I going to be stuck like it?

And that's the time for change.

Beet That!
