The Top 8 Health Benefits of Dates

We love dates! And no, not the pick-me-up at 7 for dinner and a movie kind of date. We’re talking about the deliciously healthy, chewy and sweet dates!

Dates are an excellent source of body-healthy vitamins and minerals, such as calcium, sulfur, iron, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, copper, magnesium, zinc, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin A and vitamin K. Whew, all that’s found in just one date! In addition all this, dates are also an excellent source of fiber, which keeps your blood sugar stable and your cravings low. But that’s not all!

The Top 8 Health Benefits of Dates:

  • Boost Energy Levels: Health, natural sugar accompanied by fiber equal increased energy within 1/2 hour of eating dates.
  • Relieve Constipation: High in soluble fiber, dates promote healthy bowel movements, relieving symptoms of constipation.
  • MedjoolDatesRegulate Digestive Health: High fiber combined with amino acids stimulate the digestive process and help the body assimilate nutrients.
  • Bone Strength: Minerals such as calcium, magnesium and copper are essential to strong bone health.
  • Weight Management: Vitamins, protein and naturally occurring sugar keep the body balanced PLUS satisfy sweet cravings.
  • Healthy Nervous System: Potassium found in dates promotes a healthy nervous system and improves mental alertness and brain activity.
  • Cancer Prevention: Research shows that dates may be effective in reducing your risk for stomach cancer. This, along with a healthy lifestyle will support your overall health.
  • Heart Health: Dates reduce LDL cholesterol as well as the risk of stroke and heart disease.

To reap any or all of the health benefits listed above, snack on a handful of dates a few times per week to strengthen your body, increase your energy, and regulate your digestive health.

Eat Clean Rules

There are lots of ‘rules’ when it comes to eating. Everywhere you look, someone is saying ‘Eat this. Not that.’ Different diets adhere to different guidelines, and though there are a few basics that everyone can adhere to, it’s hard to separate fact from fiction when it comes to healthy eating.

You are Unique                   eat-clean

Eat Clean Health is a huge proponent of bio individuality; the concept that every person has unique food and lifestyle needs based on a variety of factors including, but not limited to: age, gender, body type, cultural background, physical activity, and lifestyle habits. Instead of ‘dieting’, which has a fail rate of over 98%, Eat Clean Health believes that food is about NOURISHMENT, ENERGY and VITALITY. Let’s give our bodies the nutrients it needs to flourish, function, and heal.

It’s time to ditch the diet mentality. You don’t need  to starve your body to see the results you want. You need to FEED your body.

Eat More. Weigh Less.

Clients love it when I tell them to eat more food. What’s better than eating more yet weighing less? It’s all about the QUALITY of foods you’re eating. WHAT you eat matters far more than the calorie count. Load your plate with fresh fruits, vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats. And when you’re hungry, EAT! When you eat clean, your body will tell you when it’s satisfied and nourished.

Energetics of Food

Think about the density of food. It’s easy to eat an entire package of chips, popcorn or cookies and still not feel satisfied. Why is that? It’s empty food. You’re not eating nutrient-dense food. When you do this, your body is left with ‘cravings’; the body recognizes that something (essential nutrients, fiber, fats, etc…) is missing and triggers hormones telling your brain to find them. And so you eat more-and-more without feeling satisfied. You overeat, yet you’re under nourished.

When you eat WHOLE FOODS, you supply your body with energy. Fruits and greens create a light energy, root vegetables and meat create a grounded and relaxed energy, sugar and caffeine create an anxious, tense energy. What is the energy of your daily food? How would you like it to be different?

Eating Clean is Way of Life

Yes, it is possible to eat clean and feel amazing EVERYDAY! You can energize your life and prevent chronic illness and disease by simply being mindful of the things that enter your kitchen and make their way into your body. Yes, it takes changes–some small, some big–but those changes equal a healthier, happier you. It’s not about tricking or starving your body; it’s about making conscious, daily choices to live and eat in a way that supports your overall health and wellness.
