Be a picky eater:
Limit your saturated and trans fats. Aim to eat more foods that are rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids to cut your risk of cardiovascular disease. On the mood side of things, eating these types of foods could help with positive energy. Eating things like; fish, mik, meat, and cheese are all great foods that can help with upping the omega-3s.
Start a meal plan:
Having a consistent meal plan is a good way to lead a healthy lifestyle because it helps your body to sustain a good weight and it can help you excel with your fitness performance. By recording what you are eating, it makes it easier to meal-plan and you can think ahead and be on top of things. Nine times out of ten, planning ahead in anything that we do with our current, crazy lifestyles will result in some sort of success. Just like we plan our workouts we need to plan accordingly with what we put into our mouths. It is the most important part of creating a healthy lifestyle.
Curb your eating right before bed:
A small snack, a drink, or some fruit are okay to have before you get some z’s but not a full-blown, big meal. If you eat a substantial amount of food before bed your body may not digest the food as quickly and it can hold onto it, resulting in the storage of fat in your body. This obviously depends on the amount of calories that you are taking in during your day.
