Your Guide to Healthy Eating

Your Healthy Eating Guide

Your Guide to Healthy EatingOne of the biggest obstacles if not the biggest obstacle that stand in our way of our weight loss and health goals is our nutritional choices. Wading your way through the overload of diet and nutritional information and fads can be a daunting and confusing task. I’m going to eliminate the nutritional guessing game with 3 of my top tips and introduce 2 new little know nutritional tactics that can work for you.

Healthy Eating Tip #1: Plan for your Success.
Pre-plan your meals and snacks in advance and prepare more of your meals than you eat out each week. This allows you to control what you consume and make healthy choices. Moderation is the key!

Healthy Eating Tip #2: Eat Your Greens, and Fruit.
Eat plenty of green vegetables such as spinach, kale, broccoli, asparagus, etc. These vegetables are loaded with vitamins and nutrients and a lot of fiber which aids in weight loss. Fruit is a tasty sweet treat that also has fiber and helps curb your sweet tooth. Stick with apples, pears, oranges, and berries they are higher in fiber and lower in sugar. Remember moderation is the key.

Healthy Eating Tip #3: Eliminate Sugar from Your Diet.
Sugar is the major culprit with our weight and health issues. Excess sugar in our diets is one of if not the biggest issue with our weight problems. Too much sugar in our diets cause energy crashes, has been linked to diabetes, depression, and generally is not good for our bodies. Start cutting sugar out of your diet by eliminating sugary drinks and avoiding processed foods. Does this mean you can never have a piece of cake or candy again? No the one piece of cake or candy is not the problem it’s the over abundance of sugars from all the other foods we consume that’s the issue.

Bonus Tip: Stay Hydrated. Make sure to drink plenty of water, especially in these hot summer months. I recommend a minimum of four 16oz glasses of water a day. Consuming plenty of water helps your digestive system work more efficiently, and overall helps you look and feel better.

Tactic #1 Intermittent Fasting
This is a hot topic in the fitness and weight loss industry this style of eating has different approaches but the approach I recommend is a 16 hour fasting period followed by an 8 hour feeding window of time. Most of the fasting period takes place while you are sleeping an example is eating your first meal at noon and having your last meal before 8. This style of eating limits the amount of time you have to consume calories and allows your body to work through the calories you have consumed before consuming again. Intermittent fasting is a very effective fat loss and weight loss plan. Do your own research and talk to your Doctor about intermittent fasting and see if it’s right for you.

Tactic #2 Eat More Fat
I know this seems scary because we have always been told the fat is bad. Turns out healthy fats are actually really good for you and your body needs them. Good fats are essential to your well-being and physical health. Foods that contain omega-3 fats such as fish, flaxseed, and walnuts can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, improve your mood, and help prevent dementia. Other healthy fats you should be consuming are avocados, nuts, olive oil, and coconut oil. Having healthy fats in your diet will help you eat less and burn more calories.
