It results in clearer skin 

Scientists explain that you may be able to eat your way to a clearer complexion if you avoid over-eating certain foods such as sugary foods, dairy, and processed grains.

It soothes sore muscles 

What you eat greatly affects how quickly and how well your body will recover after a workout. For example, protein is vital in helping your muscles recover so if your body is not receiving the appropriate amount of protein it needs, it won’t recover well.
