There is a big difference between what your body needs to function versus what your mind typically wants. The body needs the correct vitamins, minerals, water, and macronutrients to build and sustain your body’s cells. What your mind wants is typically loaded with empty calories that have very little vitamins and minerals. These items damage your cells as opposed to building and sustaining them.
Your body is literally made up of what you eat and drink so why not build it with the best ingredients? You would never put the wrong oil or gas in your vehicle because it would break down. The body is no different…you fill it with things that do not belong, and it will break down.
