It can be daunting to completely switch your eating around, especially if you have a lifestyle or community that supports bad eating habits.
This page is for those who don’t want to commit to a plan (yet) but wish to start putting their feet in the water and try this whole “healthy eating” thing out.
Below you will find a guide to help you feel out the first few steps of eating a healthy, balanced diet in easy to follow steps!
First Things First…
Step one: Drink a glass of water first thing in the morning, before coffee or food, for the next three days.
That’s it! We’re starting small with baby steps to ensure you are able to keep up with implementing new habits. There are a number of reasons why water is your first step. For one it helps boost metabolism, it alkalize’s your body, helps create a clear mind, and help to fill your belly so you don’t eat as much during the day.
BONUS: Invest in a reusable water bottle and bring it with you everywhere you go. Work to refill it at least 3 times per day with water and drink all of it.
Step two: Get a good nights sleep.
This may seem like it doesn’t reflect eating healthy but studies show a good nights sleep helps reduce the need for binge eating, releases calming hormones to keep away stress, and when you don’t get a lot of sleep your body holds onto excess fat. Sleeping well will release that stress holding compound.
Some ways of adding more sleep to your routine are going to bed earlier, taking a nap during the day when you get the chance, or write before going to bed to empty your brain from the days stresses.
Bonus: use this as an add on to having your morning glass of water.
