Making diet changes can seem like a massive undertaking, but here are a few tips to help get you started and help you stay on track.
1. Eat 5 small meals a day.
This is a great way to help you stay on track with your nutrition goals. By eating smaller meals more often, you ensure that you don’t rely on snacks and junk food to help get you to your next meal. It can help you feel less hungry as you move about your busy day.
It really is the most important meal of the day. Eating breakfast helps get your metabolism moving and can keep you full and focused until your next meal.
3. Drink half your body weight in ounces.
I know I’ve said this tip before, but it is one of the best things you can do for your body. Drinking water is not only good for digestion, it also helps all your muscles and joints work more efficiently. Start your day with a glass of water before drinking any coffee to help kick start your metabolism for the day.
Pro tip: Be mindful when you eat. Try not to eat in front of the TV or while performing another task. Focusing on eating can help you eat slower and help you better gage when you are full. Additionally, making sure you keep a steady intake of vitamins and minerals throughout your day can also help make your immune system stronger.
