As the holidays come around this year, I get a lot of questions about eating healthy. Here is the #1 thing I would say: “Make half of your plate non-starchy vegetables”. This means leafy greens, cabbage, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, beets, etc…If you can do that you are well on your way to a healthier you.
It may seem hard, but it is not. What is actually a little difficult is change. Our bodies naturally want to stay the same. We must change our mind about the situation and make our body comply. Our mind will be screaming at us, our emotions will be all over the place, but we must let it know that we will be in control from now on and it will listen to what we are telling it.
This takes effort and focus but that is like anything in life. When we get a new job, we must learn how to do new things, we must learn new programs, new paperwork and then we master our responsibilities and become a great employee. Well, this is no different. You have just gotten a new job - to learn to eat better.
You will learn what to eat, when to eat, how much to eat, calorie counting and when you have done this you will have mastered how to live a life of health and wellness. I am sure this is a paycheck you want to cash. That comes with the benefits of a long life. I will give you some more tips but let’s start with this one first. Let me know how this has helped.
