As March was National Nutrition Month and we approach the summer months, what better way to work on the beach body than fuel our bodies with nutrient rich foods and get outside for a little vitamin D and exercise? It’s no surprise that when you provide your body with the right nutrition, you feel better, and your overall happiness skyrockets. Try practicing these better eating habits, and see for yourself.
Increase Water Intake
Our bodies are over 50% made up of water. Water hosts so many benefits for the body including, better digestion, calorie control, clearer skin, and boosts productivity! Water is known to fill you up, so you don’t overindulge – it’s a staple for those wanting to cut back on the calories.
To find out how much water you should be consuming daily based upon your weight, follow this simple rule: for each pound, drink ½ ounce – 1 ounce of water per day.
Do Not Skip Meals
In the end, skipping meals is only going to slow down your metabolism and leave you hungry and irritable. A good eating schedule consists of breakfast, lunch, dinner, with two snacks throughout the day. Make sure your meals are nutrient rich and contain a lot of whole grains, fruits, and veggies!
Control Portion Sizes
One of the best ways to still eat all of your favorite foods is just to eat less of them. Portion control is key when it comes to better eating habits. Instead of eating a ten-ounce steak, eat a six-ounce steak. Binging and overeating can happen after you completely cut a certain food out of your life.
There you have it! Drink water, don’t skip any meals, and keep the portions on the smaller side, and you have a beginner guide to better eating habits.
