It is important to know how eating right and exercising helps you because it can help to keep you motivated to stick with a healthy lifestyle.

Health Benefits of Eating Healthy and Exercising Just like you learned about in middle school health classes, eating right and exercising helps to build a strong heart and lungs, strong bones and muscles and gives you energy to power through your days.
You will feel better overall, get sick less often and work toward a more active and healthy life as you age. Things like diabetes, cancer and other chronic diseases are less of a threat when you treat your body well.

Beauty Benefits of Eating Healthy Your hair, skin and nails will thank you for eating healthy. Getting a well-balanced diet with adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals will help to ensure healthy, more youthful skin. Sugary, processed foods can actually age you, so keeping these to a minimum will help you look younger for a lot longer. Issues like wrinkles, fine lines and skin discoloration are less likely with a well-balanced diet.

Strong hair requires nutrients like protein and B vitamins. A healthy diet will ensure that you are getting adequate amounts of these. When you have adequate nutrition, your hair will grow faster, it will be stronger and less prone to breakage and damage. You still need to wash and condition, of course, but nutrition will play the largest role in overall health.

Fingernails and toenails can tell a lot about a person's health. There are some changes that will happen when you are not getting enough vitamins and minerals. Things like lines in the nails, brittleness and breakage are all possible. Eating a diet that is rich in nutrients will help to ensure that your nails are strong and exude health.

Exercise Benefits of Eating Healthy Whether you workout to maintain fitness or to achieve it, you will get beauty benefits in the process too. First and foremost, right after a good workout your skin will glow. You sweat and this helps to push gunk out of your pores to help purify your skin. This also leads to more oxygenated blood going to your skin, an increase in cell renewal and a boost in detoxification.

Cellulite is something that no woman ever wants to see. However, most women will have it to some degree at some point in life. If you want to keep your risk as low as possible, you want to exercise regularly. This helps to keep body fluids flowing and keeps toxins regularly flushed out so that cellulite has the least risk to form.

The aging process is inevitable, but this does not mean you cannot stave it off for as long as possible. Exercising regularly has been shown to help combat aging. This occurs because regular exercise helps to keep tension and stress lower, and tension and stress are known to age you.

Things like acne and rosacea can actually be helped with regular exercise for many people. The sweating helps to purge pores which helps to keep your skin cleaner. Now, you will want to face your face and body after a good workout to help this process.

When it comes to exercise, you want to get at least 45 minutes per session, at three sessions a week. This is the minimum. Now, you can do anything that makes you sweat and gets your heart rate up. Training exercises like slideboard training is fun and provides a workout for your cardiovascular system and your muscles at the same time. This exercise started to help hockey players build stamina, flexibility and strength, but it can be done by anyone. You can even buy slideboards to use in your own home.
