    If you go to the doctors complaining about having a headache, the doctor will say take a aspirin/paracetamol and rest. 
Never really addressing the root cause of the problem: Lack of water, looking at a screen all day, not sleeping enough, poor diet, too much alcohol. 
Yet you didn’t get a headache for lack of aspirin… Medicine is an industry as well as science.  

The human body is remarkable and is the only place we have to live. 
Our bodies are made up of skin, muscle, bones and organs. 
The organs are made of tissue, and those tissues are made of cells. 
So in essence we are just millions of cells, but those cells die out everyday, and have to be replaced everyday. 
So how do we replace them? 
How do we build new cells? 
The raw materials come from only one place, what we put in our mouths. 
If we put healthy nutritious food in our mouths we can make healthy cells. 
If we put bad food in our bodies, then we have raw materials that will make inferior cells, or sick cells that can make us sick. 
If you want to perform sh*t then eat sh*t, but don’t feed rubbish food to your kids. Your slackness could make your kids unhealthy or sick. 

If you poison your body with toxins your body will become toxic and poisoned. You will endure illness as a result of your actions. 

Give yourself a fighting chance :)

    We eat too much meat. 
Excess meat consumption is bad for the planet, for our health, and for the well-being of animals. 
Our diets should be at least 90% plant based. 
We are omnivores not carnivores! 

Personally I don’t want a heart attack when I am 50! 

Men who eat too much processed meat at more risk of heart failure says study

Check this article by the British heart foundation. 

Men who eat too many sausages could be at greater risk of heart failure, according to researchers.

The Swedish study looked at the diets of over 37,000 men and found those who ate more than 75g of processed red meat a day - equivalent to 3 rashers of bacon or 2 large sausages - had a 28% greater risk of developing heart failure than those who ate less than 25g a day.

The findings also showed that the men who ate the most processed red meat were over twice as likely to die from heart failure.

This risk increased by 38% for each additional 50g serving. However, eating unprocessed red meat such as pork, beef and minced meat was not found to increase risk of heart failure.

This research suggests we would do well to curb our cravings as processed red meat could be linked to an increased risk of heart failure
Tracy Parker, our Heart Health Dietician, said: “With summer in the air, many of us may be looking forward to a barbecue. But this research suggests we would do well to curb our cravings as processed red meat, such as sausages and burgers, could be linked to an increased risk of heart failure.
“The study doesn’t look into why this is the case, but suggests the adverse effect could be down to the salt and additives used to produce and preserve processed meats.

“Whilst red meat can still be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet, a healthy diet is a varied one. So if you eat lots of processed meat, try other protein choices such as chicken, fish, beans or lentils to keep your heart healthy.” #spartanfam #famfoods

    Children pay attention to what you do not what you say.

    I am currently recovering from injury, not being able to do push ups yet (doctors orders) was annoying me. The I remembered the Story of Peng Shulin. 
In life we keep complaining about what is or why we don’t have.
Half the time we seem dissatisfied, though full-bodied and free to choose.
Poor people want to be rich and rich are never satisfied with what they have.
PENG Shulin is 78cms high. He was born in Hunan Province, China.
In 1995, in Shenzhen, a freight truck sliced his body in half.
His lower body and legs were beyond repair.
Surgeons sewed up his torso.
Peng, 37, spent nearly two years in hospital in Shenzhen, southern China,undergoing a series of operations to re-route nearly every major organ or system inside his body.
Peng kept exercising his arms, building up strength, washing his face and brushing his teeth.
Now he does push ups. #deadyourexcuses
He Survived against all odds.
Peng Shulin has astounded doctors by learning to walk again after a decade.
Considering Peng’s plight, doctors at the China Rehabilitation Research Centre in Beijing devised an ingenious way to allow him to walk on his own,creating a sophisticated egg cup-like casing to hold his body, with two bionic legs attached.
Peng has been walking the corridors of Beijing Rehabilitation Centre with the aid of his specially adapted legs and a resized walking frame.
Oh so satisfying to ‘walk’ again after ten years with half a body!
Hospital vice-president Lin Liu said: “We’ve just given him a checkup; he is fitter than most men his age.”
Peng Shulin has opened his own bargain supermarket, called the Half Man-Half Price Store.
The inspirational 37-year-old has become a businessman and is a role model for other amputees.
At just 2ft 7ins tall, he moves around in a wheelchair giving lectures on recovery from disability.
His attitude is amazing, he doesn’t complain.
“He had good care, but his secret is cheerfulness. Nothing ever gets him down.” #spartanfam

    This life we live is dictated by what we do and what happens to us, usually because of what we do. 
Life happened to us as will death so everything is everything. 
You were given this life because are strong enough to live it. 
While we are blessed to be alive we have to try and be happy. 
Don’t just work harder work smarter at something you love. 
Be around people you love. 
Help people who need it. 
Stand up for what you believe in. 
Don’t harm yourself or others, don’t allow others to harm innocents. 
Don’t regret, as your past is your experience, you gotta be strong when coming to peace with emotional trauma. 
Try different things but do the most of what you love the most. 
Don’t expect too much as you aren’t entitled to anything, but if you have a vision and can work towards it, I’m sure you can make anything happen. 
You have an opportunity that many have died for. An opportunity that many people fight every single day for. 
An opportunity that many have never had… That opportunity life itself. 
Think of all the people who aren’t with us anymore, the same people who would have appreciated, many of the things we take for granted. 
The happiest moment in your life is now. 
Really live your life, reach you full potential. 
Know your limits and defy them. 
Have a good day :) #repost @thegoodquote
