Nutrition is one key to get you closer to where you want to be. But where do you start?
Rarely do doctors take the time to really dive into that discussion during an office visit. (I believe they are severely undereducated on the nutrition side of things, but that’s another email for another day.) But I can help. In fact, I’ve been helping people just like you understand the role nutrition plays in your overall success for more than a decade.
Here are some of my best and most effective tips when starting out:
Start With Fat
One of the best things you can do to keep your blood sugar balanced is avoid starting your day with a meal high in sugar.
Begin your day - whenever your 1st meal takes place - with a (healthy) fat & protein rich meal.Eggs and avocado.
- Berries and nut butter.
- Smoothie with coconut milk.
Focus on Single Ingredient Foods
A simple rule of thumb for consuming more nutrient-dense foods is by eating as many single ingredient foods as possible in a meal or day.
This automatically steers you toward healthier and less processed foods. It also brings awareness to your food choices, which is the most critical part of nutrition success.
Drink More Water
Did you know those hunger feelings you may be experiencing are actually dehydration in disguise? It’s true.
Before you eat something, try drinking a tall glass of water. Water not only hydrates your body, and makes things work more efficiently, it’s also an easy way to stave off excessive snacking that may happen due to mixed up hunger and thirst cues.
Nutrition is a crucial aspect to a well-rounded transformation plan. Without proper nutrition, you may not see the results you’re after, or it may take a lot longer to accomplish those goals.
Choosing the right approach for you could mean the difference between success and failure. And you have the right to choose success every time.
