Food for Thought
Good nutrition is a lifestyle, not a diet. It starts with a new way of thinking about food. Think of your body as a vehicle that uses food for fuel. Fill your tank with the right type of fuel.
Do not approach your nutrition plan as a diet plan, but rather, a lifestyle change. If you make a permanent change, you will see big results. The key to success is a daily focus on your goal.
Portion your meals and track your calories. There are many free mobile apps available to help track your activity level and calories.
Control impulsive urges to buy junk food, and instead, allow yourself to one "cheat" meal a week.
Use the following as a guideline:
- Protein, such as eggs, chicken, and lean red meat
- Vegetables, but avoid corn and peas
- Fat, such as olive oil, nuts, and seeds
