Easy Diet Tips

 

These tips may be obvious, but it’s often the basic common sense stuff we ignore.
5 simple health tips to keep you ageless:

1. Hydrate. Water is life. Most of us probably need to drink more water throughout the day. Often when we’re feeling sick, queasy, headache-y, it turns out we’re dehydrated. When we’re properly hydrated, the body and mind work better. The body uses water to repair cells, digest food, boost the metabolism, and keep the immune system strong. 

2. No added sugar. Foods that are all added sugar (like candy and soda) or with added sugar are often the biggest factor undermining all of our health goals. The best and easiest thing to do: drop added sugar. Sugar inflames us, keeps us craving more, and makes us sick, tired, and prematurely old. Fight sugar cravings by eating more good fats, fiber, and lean protein. 

3. Eat only whole foods. Whole, real food tastes good and gives the body vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, satiating healthy fats, energizing complex carbohydrates, filling lean proteins and fiber. Bonus: real food doesn’t have added sugars, chemicals, preservatives, and other junk that pollutes the body and inflames us. Real food doesn’t cause brain damage.

4. Eat more fiber. Fiber keeps us lean and satiated. And our gut loves fiber. If the gut – microbiome – isn’t happy, we aren’t happy. A healthy gut equals a healthy mind, immune system, and body. There are two types of fiber, and we need both. Soluble and insoluble. You’ll find soluble fiber in foods like black beans, green, leafy vegetables, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. And, insoluble fiber in steel cut oats, brown rice, and flax seeds. 

5. Targeted support from supplements. We live in a world that is less than pristine. The air, water, and food we absorb is not going to be as pure as we would like. We’re not going to get all the nutrients we need solely and wholly from a healthy diet. We need high-quality supplements to support us and augment our diet. Key vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients act as antioxidants in the body. They help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Antioxidants help the body fight everything from cancer to heart disease to brain damage, and even weight gain. When you reduce inflammation, your cellular processes and metabolism can function at their very best. My favorites antioxidant powerhouses include curcumin, a great multi-vitamin, and omega 3s. For energy and metabolic support, a strong B-complex And probiotics to keep my gut healthy and happy.
