Advice That Will Help You Start Eating Healthier

Every new year, we make a pledge to eat healthier. It’s easy to make that promise in theory, but just as easy to fall off the wagon and give in to fast food and takeout. Healthy eating plans are admirable but not so easy to execute. The important thing is that you’re making an effort. We’re here to offer some tips that support overall health and changing bad behavior patterns.


1. Add, don’t restrict Instead of making a list of foods that you can’t eat, make a list of healthy and vibrant foods that support a healthy diet. Mentally, it’ll make it easier to make that jump to healthy eating. Maybe you need more leafy greens. Perhaps a goal is to simply add more color into your meals since doing so increases your daily intake of phytonutrients.


2. Not all fat is bad We’re so brainwashed into thinking fat is bad for us, but there are lots of fat goods that are super satisfying to eat, but don’t count as indulgences. For instance: nuts, avocados, and EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) are amazing for health and help balance hormones in women. The key is knowing the difference between these healthy fats and inflammatory fats, such as margarine, fried treats, or canola oil.


3. Swap soda for herbal tea Drinking soda is a bad habit that’s hard to kick for many. Even worse, many of us chug it rather than properly enjoying it. We’re basically pouring a bag of sugar down our throats when doing that. See if you can switch out soda for herbal tea, which you’re forced to sip rather than gulp down.


4. Stop skipping meals We’re so used to skipping meals and depriving ourselves, but this just causes our blood sugar to drop while cortisol levels get higher. Both of these things cause weight gain. To avoid these, eat multiple small meals throughout the day or three balanced meals. Don’t have time? Make sure you always have healthy snacks on you, like fruit or almonds.


5. Meal prep all the way Giving into cravings or not having anything to eat after a long workday can cause us to make poor, impulsive food decisions. Instead of ordering that pizza or burger, have your meals planned. It takes the stress out of washing and chopping your veggies. You can freeze or refrigerate fully pre-made meals, or you have pre-chopped or pre-cooked veggies ready on hand to make cooking a breeze.


6. Incorporate pre/probiotics Along with normalizing gut health, adding a supplement with digestive enzymes or pre/probiotics will stimulate a satiated or full, feeling. You can also find these naturally in plant-based foods like papaya, but in case they’re not readily available, a supplement or beverage such as kombucha or kefir works just as well.


7. Give in to your indulgences, in small portions Make a list of foods that are ”worth it” to you. This can be tempting foods at family gatherings, your favorite cheat day eats, or something you love to munch on post-workouts. Repressing cravings is never healthy for our brain or body, so give in to the decadent treat and just balance it out for the rest of the week so you don’t start obsessing.
