Today is the first day of the rest of your life.    And steps you take now impact how good you feel, going forward.

Make some smart adjustments  –

Healthy Eating Guide – Quality Suggestions

1.  Avoid foods with words you can’t pronounce, or understand.   When stocking your pantry (or cupboards), keep it simple.

2.  Breakfast is  important – don’t miss the chance to start the day out right.  An energy bar or drink will not suffice – listen to your body!

3.  Keep high quality snacks with you – real food, like a banana, apple, or romain salad.  Keep them preserved with a cooler .

4.  Have a “well rounded diet” – include some carbs for the “storing” of energy.

5.  Drink enough water, and fluids, throughout the day.   You probably don’t require 8 glasses of water as was recommended in the past – but give your body enough fluids both in winter & in summer.   *Milk, water & juice are best for active people.

6.  Skipping calories – this is a “no-no” – your body needs a certain amount of calories per day.  Don’t deprive your body its calories (even for a diet).

It could be unsafe.  For weight loss,  what you should do, is aim for 1 – 2 pounds a week.   If you start losing weight too fast, eat a bit more food.

7.  Sweeten and salt foods yourself, whenever possible.   You’ll consume far less sugar (and salt) in this way since companies add in far more sugar than a human being ever would.

8.  Favor the kind of grains which traditionally have been stone ground  – avoid white flour.   The traditional benefits of Whole grains are impressive.  Get the full

range of B Vitamins by staying with Stone Ground .  Look at Nutritional Benefits of Stone Ground Wheat flour

9.  Eat some foods that have been pre-digested by fungi, or bacteria — “fermented foods” like yogurt, sauerkraut,  or delicious sourdough bread is a healthy eating guideline.

      Fermented Foods can contain probiotics, with beneficial bacteria – you may have heard of this, or READ Fermented Foods  <–

It is said fermented foods with probiotics can improve immune function, and reduce allergies & inflammation

Armed with this healthy eating guide, you should look forward to better days ahead – you should feel better and have greater quantities of energy at your disposal. Just stick to the plan. Use online support systems if you need it.
