Hey Everyone! .
As you all know, its Day 1 of our Get Scary Fit, DIY Boo-tcamp Workout. You can check it here. I believe that a healthy workout goes hand in hand with a healthy diet. That’s why I want to share with youon how to eat clean. And for today I’ll be sharing with you 3 Small Nutrition Changes that Make a Big Difference in your eating habits.
We all know that clean eating requires changes in our habits. And of course, habits don’t happen overnight. As a matter of fact, it takes a minimum of 21 days to form a habit. Habits require effort, proper mind set, patience and time. You may feel intimidated when you’re changing your eating habits, and can somehow discourage you from eating clean. Just keep in mind, taking small steps are our way to go.
Making tiny changes, like eating small meals every few hours, eating on a white plate instead of takeout boxes, and having breakfast as soon as you get up in the morning – are ways to a healthy weight loss and healthier way of eating.
And now, you can try adapting one of these seven little diet changes that will help you start your way to a much healthier lifestyle:
1. Drink Smoothies
– Who doesn’t want cold blended drinks? I believe everyone can easily get on board with drinking smoothies. This is a great option if you want to increase your fiber and essential plant nutrients intake. But be reminded that consuming too much sugar from fruits can be very harmful so you need to stick to a healthy ratio of 70% vegetables and 30% percent fruit. You’ll be amazed that it only takes few strawberries to balance the taste of spinach. Add Greek yogurt for some good protein and probiotics.
2. Be Mindful of your Portion Size
– Being aware of how much you’re eating can prevent you from over consumption of one food group. If you feel that you’re still hungry, you can munch on vegetables. The fiber from vegetables will leave you satisfied and at same time, provide you with a healthier, balanced meal.
3. Glass of Water First
– Always remember! Each meal should start with a glass of water. It will not only keep you hydrated but it will also fill you up before you even start eating. Don’t confuse thirst as hunger. Drink your water, it has 0 calories.
