You read headlines everywhere – 5 ways to lose your belly fat this week! Eat these foods to get skinny! Lose cellulite now with this drink!
Typically these are all garbage…and yet we click…JUST to see what they have to say. LOL.
I do however have 3 tips that help me to stay on track and that changed my life…or at least my tummy.
This blog is short but important if you want to eat better, feel better and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
3 – Limit dairy. I am not saying to eliminate dairy but I do believe that the consumption of dairy…or at least over consumption can, and does, cause inflammation – mucous, bloating, constipation, acne and more.
2 – Try new recipes. NEVER eat food that you don’t like. Keep your food interesting AND healthy. It can happen – especially with sites like Pinterest around now…you can find new ways to make typical healthy dishes. Don’t just eat the same old chicken over and over and don’t cringe at boring salad. Eating healthy doesn’t mean boring, bland food. Add seeds, nuts, fruit to salads – use sesame oil to change the flavor, grill vegetables to add, add black beans, corn…and the list goes on and on…Love what you eat. Be excited about it or you will become resentful and think about all the things you are “missing out on” and not focusing on all the amazing food you are filling your body with.
And you don’t just have to eat salads all time. The variety of vegetables that you can eat without even making a salad is incredible!
1 – For me, this tip is crucial to how I feel overall.
No night snacking.
I don’t mean no snacking ever… for the rest of your life. But for most of the time try to go to bed without food in your belly. You will most likely sleep better (after you get used to it) and you will wake up lighter and way less bloated. And there is some sort of satisfaction of waking up and NOT feeling guilty for what you ate the night before. No more, “why did I eat that??” “Ugh, I feel so crappy/my stomach hurts.”
I don’t have all the answers, but I do believe in the above tips. Try one or try them all and see how you feel! Email me at email@example.com
