Nutrition Tips

SOME SIMPLE EASY CHANGES YOU CAN MAKE.

  1. Eat every 2 – 4 hours. Keep your metabolism burning…. remember thermogenesis.
  2. Eat protein every meal – lean complete proteins. Lean meats, fish, eggs, low fat dairy, tofu, tempeh, whey protein.
  3. Eat nuts and seeds as a snack – just a handful. They are packed full of vitamins, minerals can help prevent cancer. They are high in fats (the good kind) but still eat in moderation.
  4. Eat fruit and vegetables – Fruits and Vegetables do have a carbohydrate content – some more than others. For veggies – the green leafy ones are the best. Fruit, stoned fruit. Watch your quantities with fruit they do have natural sugars….. higher carb content.
  5. You do need fats in your diet. You have saturated fats – eggs, milk etc. Monounsaturated fats –  olive oil, nuts and avocados, polyunsaturated fats – flax seed oil, fish oil, nuts, vegetable oils.
  6. Eat whole unprocessed food where you can. As nature intended.
  7. Plan ahead – take your lunch to work – will help stop bad food choices and temptation!
  8. Drink plenty of water – stay away from sugary energy drinks.
  9. Have variety – otherwise you will get bored…. you get bored you’ll end up being tempted with a bad food choice.
  10. Be prepared that you’ll “stray” from the right choices maybe 3-4x per week. DON’T stress. Get back on track and stay positive.
