Eating Well

Eating a healthy diet is another part of the healthy lifestyle.

Not only can a clean diet help with weight management, it can also improve your health and quality of life as you get older.

There are numerous complex relationships between nutrition and health, both positive and negative.

Here are some examples how nutrition can effect us in the short term:

  • Hydration levels
  • Concentration
  • Physical performance
  • Energy levels
  • Cause headaches
  • Boost or surpress immunity

Below are little changes you can make to your nutrition in order to start eating healthier:

  • ·Eat more fruit. Add it to your cereal, your salads or even your dinner
  • ·Sneak in more veggies. Add them wherever you can–a tomato on your sandwich, peppers on your pizza, or extra veggies in your pasta sauce. Keep pre-cut or canned/frozen veggies ready for quick snacks.
  • ·Switch your salad dressing. If you eat full-fat dressing, switch to something lighter and you’ll automatically eat less calories.
  • ·Eat low-fat or fat-free dairy. Switching to skim milk or fat free yogurt is another simple way to eat less calories without having to change too much in your diet.
  • ·Make some substitutes. Look through your cabinets or fridge and pick 3 foods you eat every day. Write down the nutritional content and, the next time you’re at the store, find lower-calorie substitutes for just those 3 items.

Creating a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to mean drastic changes. In fact, drastic changes almost always lead to failure. Making small changes in how you live each day can lead to big rewards, so figure out what you can so to be healthy today.
