6 Simple Tips to Help You Improve Your Nutrition

Updated: Apr 28, 2023

Improving your diet has more to do with breaking life long habits, than simply choosing cleaner foods.

There are a variety of foods out there that can match your taste buds, but the transformation truly starts with shifting your mindset for the change.

Cleaning up your diet is a MAJOR change, but it doesn’t have to be done all at once.

Choosing one of following 6 tips will put you on a path to realistic, sustainable results. Here are 6 tips that I’d like to share with you that will help you slowly improve your nutrition for sustainable results.

  1. Eating a leafy vegetable with each meal will help provide your body with nutrients and fiber to improve your gut and overall health.

  2. Limiting fast and fried foods will reduce the amount of saturated fats (bad fat that leads to heart disease) and sodium (leads to hypertension and heart disease). Replacing one fast food meal a day can lead to drastic changes in your weight and health.

  3. Eating lean protein with each meal will help your metabolism and help you feel fuller longer between meals therefore reducing hunger/weight. Aim for lean meats with less than 10% fat.

  4. Drinking 2 more glasses of water daily can help flush toxins, reduce hunger, and help you stay hydrated (your body needs water!)

  5. Eating less than 2000 mg of salt a day can reduce water weight and bloating.

  6. Tracking your macros will help you see exactly how many grams of carbs, fat, and protein you are actually eating and can help you determine your “problem areas” within your diet. You may be eating more fat or carbs than you’re aware of; this is a game changer.

Remember drastic changes may lead to drastic results, but these are often not sustainable results. The slower you in making small changes the more realistic and sustainable your results will be. Losing weight should not be a sprint, it is a journey that takes time. Take one step at a time, remain consistent, and you’ll be amazed at what you can truly do.
