Experts on nutrition continue to dole out great advice about how to eat well. The important thing is that you actually exchange unhealthy eating habits for healthy eating habits. It sounds complicated, but it’s not. Here are a few habits that are easy to follow and that stand the test of time.
Make Lunch Your Biggest Meal
Did you know that your digestion is at its peak around lunchtime? It’s true. So, make the most of lunch, and give your body the fuel it needs when you need it most.
Eat the Rainbow
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, and Purple…eat the rainbow with lots of fruit and vegetables. Eating a variety of fruits and veggies in all the colors of the rainbow will supply your body with phytonutrients. They are disease-fighting and will naturally fill you up. Best yet, munching healthy will deter you from unhealthy options.
Practice Low-carb and the 80/20 Rule
What do we mean? Do your best to eat low carb 80% of the time. Limiting your intake of sugar and carbs will keep your weight in balance and give you the energy you need to make it through the day. Low-carb means cutting down sugar and limiting carbohydrates to 20 – 80 grams per day.
Eat Good Fat
What’s that? Eat good fat. It’s a fallacy that fat makes you fat. Your body needs fat to run like a well-oiled machine. It’s in our genetic make-up. Choose the right kinds of fats though. They help increase satiety, maximize metabolism, and even protect against heart disease. Here are the top options: Coconut, Avocado, Dark Chocolate, Nuts, Nut Butter, Whole Eggs, Olive Oil, Greek Yogurt, Cheese, Heavy Cream and Milk.
Make Time for Healthy Snacks
Rule number one for eliminating over eating is eating often and snacking. Choose healthy snacks, specifically designed to bridge the gap between lunch and dinner. Some of the best options are apples, nuts, and cheese. Have a little bite, and stay satisfied until your next meal.
