Start From The Inside
From whole-grain bread and grapefruit juice to broccoli and kale,
foods such as these are guaranteed to make your diet fail.
'Cause healthy food, for most of us, is real hard to abide.
And yet, to add years to your life, you start from the inside.
Food that tastes good is almost certain to bring on a smile.
And so, most of our groceries come from the junk food aisle.
But eating that stuff all the time is just like suicide.
To take years from your life, you also start from the inside.
Carbohydrate, protein, fat; your body needs all three.
But it's a healthy balance that ensures longevity.
And such a balance, junk food items simply don't provide.
And so, to add years to your life, you start from the inside.
Obesity is on the rise, and it's taking a toll.
Our sedentary lifestyles often play a major role.
When coupled with the food we eat, effects are multiplied.
Because to take years from your life, you start from the inside.
One needn't be a scientist to figure all this out,
and counting every calorie is not what it's about.
Upon expensive gadgetry, good health need not rely.
Just add a few years to your life by starting from inside.
