here is the article on the minecraft wiki on Food and Health

As of 1.8, health is not restored by consuming food, but rather slowly regenerates when the player's "Food Bar" is full.

and here

In the 1.8 update, the food mechanic was changed-- No longer does eating food regain health, but instead fills the Hunger Meter, which goes down when the player does things like running, sprinting, and mining. When the player has 9 or more meat bones on the hunger meter, their health will slowly regenerate.

So theres no outside way to heal your health anymore, ei maybe a potion, you just gotta keep your health at or about 80% x.x –  user16309 Dec 12 '11 at 1:10
    
@RokonOrichiami As of 1.9 you can make a instant health potion see: minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Brewing –  Ray Britton Dec 12 '11 at 8:19

You (should) auto regen health when your food bar is full. Food no longer directly heals you.

Always eat a golden apple or eat something normal such as a apple. When you eat your hunger bar refills and your health will slowly regenerate!

Additionally most of your answer was covered by the previous two answers nearly two years ago and doesn't contribute much else. Golden apples might have been something worth expanding upon, as they do provide some additional health-related bonuses beyond the hunger bar. –  Trent Hawkins Sep 12 '13 at 4:47
    
This answer is too short and vague. you didn't even explain how to get a golden apple. –  Awesomest_Donut Oct 1 '13 at 3:35
