Struggling with eating healthy?
Ugh, tell me about it! Why do all the things bad for you taste SO good? Don’t worry, I’m here to guide you through some simple changes you can make in your everyday life that’ll get you closer to that main goal:
The added benefit to this blog is that when you take what I’ve talked about and apply it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how much it improves your life.
3 Steps Toward Healthier Eating:
1. DRINK MORE WATER!
It’s no secret that water has endless benefits.
Staying hydrated actually helps you to curve hunger cravings. Why? Well, sometimes when you feel hungry when you know you shouldn’t, it’s because you need to hydrate.
Quenching your thirst resolves those hunger pains in a lot of cases.
Staying hydrated helps to prevent unnecessary weight gain due to over-eating.
Other added benefits:
- Your energy levels will increase
- Your skin will start looking better
- Boosts your immune system
- Flushes out toxins
So, let’s start swapping those sweetened beverages for some water!
Add mint, lemons, or fruit to your water if you want something sweeter/flavoured.
2. LIMIT SUGAR INTAKE!
Next time you feel like reaching for that candy bar, or artificially sweetened candy, make the choice to go grab some fruit instead.
Tell yourself that you are making this choice for your health: one of the most important things you have.
The more you follow through on this process, the less your body will crave artificial sugars.
Trust the process!
It gets easier with time.
Awesome alternatives to sugar:
- Stevia (derived from a PLANT)
- Honey (natural)
3. CONTROL YOUR CRAVINGS!
This is SO important.
So many of us are emotional eaters. I know I can be.
Instead of going to pig out on junk food, do something more positive.
Do something that will benefit your health and your mindset.
For me personally that’s:
- hitting the gym
- staying productive at work
We are all different, so you need to find what that healthy distraction is for you.
Do this for you and all your loved ones.
I can honestly say that my life has gotten nothing but brighter since I put these steps into place.
That also means you’re able to influence others around you with your success.
Swapping bad things that make you feel guilty with good things that make you grow (in all ways: physically, emotionally, mentally), makes everything in your life a lot more positive.
Healthy mind, healthy life.
I promise you’ll start seeing the positive changes if you apply these things too.
Don’t be afraid to indulge every now and then, either. I know I do. Moderation is key.
Crush it! I believe in you!
