1. Eat right for YOU!
Eating a lower fat diet can be a disaster for some, and a recipe for health for another. Just as eating lower carbohydrates can be a disaster for some, and a recipe for health for another. Use Intuitively Your Type as your guide, and learn to listen to your body, and eat what’s right for you and your unique body.
2. Eat veggies at least twice per day… and more if you can!
Depending on how your body metabolizes food, you may need more or less vegetables throughout the day. Some individuals do better with starchy vegetables, while others seem to function better with more fibrous, green vegetables often. Try Organic Greens powder for an easy solution to get immense benefits of all the organic supergreens, free-radical fruits, and healthy fats in one scoop.
3. Consume protein at each meal.
This includes organic, free-range chicken, grass-fed beef, wild caught fish, etc. It also includes nuts and seeds if you are a vegetarian. To get more protein in your diet in an easy to make, fresh smoothie, try adding Organic Vegan Protein + to your morning, afternoon, or evening smoothie!
4. Eat every 3-4 hours and drink H2O throughout the day.
Eating every 3-4 hours keeps blood sugar levels stable, avoiding the “crash”, as well as over-consuming from skipping meals. It also allows plenty of time for digestion before eating again. Drinking water keeps the body properly hydrated, flushing out toxins, and allowing all body systems to operate as intended.
5. Mind your starchy carbohydrates
Again, depending on your particular Nutritional Type you may need more or less starchy carbohydrates (particularly grains) throughout the day. If you have inflammation issue, grains should be reduced and even potentially eliminated.
6. Eat a balance of different fats.
Omega 3, 6, 9 – find a healthy balance by incorporating olive oil, coconut oil, etc. The standard American diet is very often out of balance, which can cause a multitude of issues.
7. Ditch the calorie-containing drinks.
If you’re thirsty, drink water.
8. Use whole foods as your primary source of nutrition.
If you can’t picture the food (or all of its ingredients) hanging off a tree, growing out of the ground, or walking/swimming the earth, don’t eat it. It’s probably not meant for human consumption.
9. Develop food preparation strategies.
Keep your fridge stocked with good foods, carry foods (such as nuts) with you while on-the-go, and prep things like boiled eggs ahead of time so you have food ready to eat.
10. Balance daily food choices with a healthy variety.
Rotate your foods. The body needs a variety of nutrients from a variety of sources. This will also help eliminate the potential for developing food allergies and intolerances.
Which of these strategies are you working on?
