My Final Speech - Why you should live a healthier lifestyle. Everything below this is my rough outline of my final speech. The point of this post is that I want to follow through with what I’m going to say. I don’t want to sound like a hypocrite and say “oh you all should do this” when I can’t even do it myself. It’s like lying to everyone, I shouldn’t say things I can’t do myself. “Don’t make promises you can’t keep.” So from now until the end of the quarter (or even better, the rest of my life) I will follow through with this and see if this will REALLY help me with my negativity and stay in shape. I had two freakin’ grilled cheese sandwiches today and honestly, that ruined my day. So enjoy the fabulous facts below and maybe I’ve persuaded you to do this as well. I will post the results of this after a month. (: HEALTHY LIFESTYLE = BETTER PERSON

I. What you eat really affects the way you live.
A. Healthy foods like fruits and vegetables are very beneficial to your mind and body. All of the following are from Sharon Zoumbaris’s book Nutrition: 1. Proteins are the building blocks of our body, meaning they repair muscle, bone and tissue damage. They also help out your hemoglobin, or the part of the red blood cell that carries oxygen around the body and provide you some energy. You can find protein in fish, meat and eggs. 2. Carbohydrates provide energy for the brain and muscle cells, so it really helps out with our cognition. This can be found in potatoes and rice. 3. Vitamins help prevent certain diseases. There are Vitamins A, B, C, D, and E. Fruits and vegetables contain vitamins since they are the most natural. 4. Water is the most important nutrient of all. It helps us function, cool body temperature, urinates wastes away and makes up part of our blood. B. Junk food should not be consumed as much as they are today because of their lack of nutritional value. 1.
