Making Smart Food Choices 

If you’ve have been trying to get yourself into a healthier state for a few months now, part of the process involves making smart food choices throughout the day. One of the steps you can take is to try to eat 5-6 smaller meals as opposed to 3 larger ones each day.

When you eat smaller meals, you are not giving your body the time to store all of the fat. As a result, you can lose weight. On top of that, since you are eating on a regular basis, you might not feel as hungry. If, for example, you eat dinner many hours after you consume lunch, you may be so ravenous that you end up eating much larger portions of food instead of just regular portion.

In addition to eating more meals each day, with smaller quantities of food of course, you can also slow down the pace at which you eat. When you eat quickly, you aren’t giving yourself the time to get full and digest your food. If you have an issue with eating too quickly, remember that part of the process is to actually enjoy the food. Eating at a rapid space means that you are not experiencing all of the flavors.

The food that you select has a major role in this adventure to a better self, as well. You should speak with your doctor and nutritionist about the right foods for your body’s needs, but in general, eating more fruits, healthy snacks, vegetables, lean meat and whole grains tends to be a wise decision. Of course, specific medical conditions or allergies that you have can alter the menu choices you must make.

Maintaining a smart attitude about food is important, but you also need to get in your workouts. It’s best to eat something healthy prior to exercising to maintain energy and avoid crashing post-workout.

Bringing all of these strategies together can lead to a healthier you for both the short and long term.
