Less dairy, no meat, more fiber, no gluten, cut sugar! There are enough recommendation to make your head spin!!!
We hear so much about various diets and food hacks that are meant to make life easier and more nutritious, but it only matters if you find it effective. Again, it comes down to what works best for your body and an approach to food that you find easy to maintain. Please don’t confuse that with easy to do, because the struggle of implementing a new diet into your lifestyle is real and tough. We also learn about a lot of new diet trends that may seem difficult to live by given our religious and cultural affiliations, so how do you best interpret and apply food hacks to your culture's traditional fare?
Even more basic, many people are low in fiber, but what’s the quick and easy way to up your intake? Good questions worth exploring below.
Eating trends change, but what’s healthy for your body doesn’t. Vegetables can be en Vogue one minute and out of style the next (remember spinach, then came kale!). In order to understand how to eat for your body, you first have to know your body and then be able to identify your goal. The next step is creating a health plan that helps you achieve your goal given whatever lifestyle constraints you feel might be holding you back. The foods that have always been healthy are still healthy! Eat them. But, understand them and their nutritional benefits. Why is this particular food good to have for _____? Eating is not just about satisfying the moment of hunger, it’s about giving your body what it needs to operate optimally for your lifestyle.

What we put in our body is so important. Our daily food intake is what fuels us for the day and depending on the caloric intake, it can help us maintain, gain, or lose weight and contribute to inflammation (ie; bloating). Try to keep your diet as wholesome as possible. Stick to natural, antibiotic-free and hormone-free meats and fish, get the freshest fruits and vegetables you can find. Feel the difference in how you look, feel and even see an improvement in the clarity of your skin by eating cleaner. I’ll keep sharing small substitutions that are yummy, but that improve the quality of your life. You are what you eat. Make little steps that lead to major progress!
