To carry over from February’s month of heart health, one of the key health factors — if not the most important — is your nutrition!
What daily habits do you have? Are they good or not so great?
Most people I have worked with eat one to two meals a day, sort of healthy, sort of not. They overconsume caffeine and don’t get enough water.
These are the most common habits I see. And, well, they are not the best.
But instead of talking about healthy nutrition or going on about the benefits of nutrient rich foods, I am going to challenge you to pick up new and improved habits.
Here you go:
- Increase your water intake.
- Add two to three more servings of veggies into your daily diet.C hoose fresh fruits over candy, cookies or ice cream.
- Limit your caffeine intake to one to two cups or 100 mg a day.
- Increase your protein, meaning such foods as lean meats, eggs and clean protein shakes.
When talking about habit, it’s always about breaking them. Make them something you add in!
