We all need a little help from time to time. That is especially true when it comes to making the big world of healthy eating just a little bit easier.
The good news is that healthy eating really is not that complicated. Don’t believe me? Well how about trying these simple life hacks to get you started on your way.
Swap All Beverages for WaterRELATED: RECOMMENDED PLANS FOR YOU
Water is essential to all of life, especially ours. When it comes to making healthy food choices this is the number one recommendation I make for anyone I work with.
Not only does drinking water work magic on a cellular level, but it keeps so many unwanted calories out of the diet.
Most beverages are basically sugar, and drinking them is a shot of increased blood sugar waiting to happen. Water is essential for both surviving and thriving. Make this simple switch today.
Make Sleep A Priority
Yes, this life hack needs to be priority. Sleep and healthy eating go hand in hand. Not only does sleep help regulate your hunger hormones and appetite, but it also gives your brain the right amount of energy to make healthy decisions.
Ever heard of brain fog? Well that foggy brain will not serve your body well when you are trying to make the right decisions. Sleep people, sleep.
Focus on Eating More Fat at Your Meals
The days of low fat eating are on their way to being a thing of the past, thank goodness. Not only can your food be enjoyed again, but it can also keep you satiated and balanced all at the same time.
Eating healthy fat is so important for proper hormonal balance. It also ensures that your body is not lacking in important fatty acids. Some great healthy fats to include in your diet are: coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, grass-fed butter. Ditch the margarine and vegetable oils.
Read the Ingredient Label
I’m talking about real food here. I have this rule, if you do not recognize an ingredient then choose another option. Real food comes from farms not factories and/or a science lab.
Ingredient labels need to consist of real food and not be a paragraph long. Chemicals and fake food are not welcome anymore.
