Top 3 Ways to Improve Your Eating Habits
Okay, let me clear the air. I am realistic about food, I love food. I have a rational understanding about what is good and what is not, what’s flavored and what’s flat out wrong (like those no carbs, no sugar diets smh), what you’ll dread eating and what is not so bad.
There are 3 categories I put under healthy eating:
Watching What You Eat
Eating For Your Goals
Eating clean is simply sticking to the basics, consuming foods that are sprouted out of the ground, not genetically modified in anyway, God-given food.
A diet consisting of these 5 types of food fall into this category:
What makes this type of diet clean is that food is eaten raw (fruits and veggies) and meats are steamed, baked, grilled, or broiled to protect its nutrients.
Converting to totally eating clean can be tough if you try to go cold turkey. It’s a gradual process that should be respected and given the proper time to adjust.
Watching What You Eat
Avoiding food that is processed, artificially flavored and colored, with preservatives usually found in boxed, canned, or pre-prepared foods like frozen dinners.
The problem with the above mentioned is the affect it has on your body. If you take a step back and really look at the ingredients of what you consume, my first question is WHAT IS IT?
Next time you pick up something in a box, can, or frozen isle, take a look at the nutrition facts and see how much of it is not really nutritional or food at all.
Watching what you eat simply means making better, conscious decisions. Staying away from fried foods. Foods that contain too many ingredients. Foods that are high in sodium, sugar, and saturated fats.
Eating for Your Goals
Here is where I’ll put diets. Sometimes, we have to cut back or cut our certain things to see changes in our bodies. That’s fair.
Your goal can be to gain or lose weight. A huge trick for losing weight around your stomach is eating clean, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the foods you love too.
Keeping your goal in mind is key. If you want abs, you have to consume lots of vegetables. Theres no way around that. If you want to gain weight, bringing on sugars and carbs can help, just make sure you are working out to make sure it’s spreading throughout your body and not just targeting one area.
They have some very valuable calculator that gives you your macros number – protein, fats, carbs, intake – depending on your goal and activity level.
Knowing your macros helps you get a better of the types of food you should be eating and how much of it you should be eating.
It’s not as scary as you think and it’s good to know.
