5 Nutrition Tips for Healthy Living

 So I'm back on my health kick after getting lost somewhere down the road...What have I learned from experiencing periodic weight loss? 

 What you eat is half the battle to achieve weight loss goals.. snack as much as possible, on healthy food ofcourse, fruit & vegetables which I am now implementing, this boosts your metabolism, breakfast is truly the most important meal of the's a MUST, AND Water, Water, Water!! 

Check out these nutrition tips from Celebrity Trainer Jeanette Jenkins that make sense.

5 Nutrition Tips

1) Prepare Your Meals at Home: Prepare your meals at home and bring them with you. You will be less stressed out and you will save time and money if you plan your meals in advance and bring them with you.

2) 3 Servings of Green Vegetables a Day: Have 3 servings of green vegetables a day. Greens help alkalinize the body which means they help strengthen your immune system & decrease your risk of illness and disease. They are also loaded with fiber to help you with digestion and elimination. Greens are also loaded with minerals, vitamins, nutrients and phytonutrients to help all of your cells function at their best.  Green Smoothies and Green Juices can help you increase your green vegetable intake.

3) Water: Half your body weight and drink that number in ounces of water a day. If you weight 150lbs you should be drinking 75oz which is about 4-5 small 16oz bottles. Your body weight is 60% water and every living cell in your body requires water to function. Chronic dehydration can lead to acid reflux, heart burn, constipation, poor digestion, headaches, migraines, arthritis, joint pain and much more.

4) Green Tea: Have 2-3 Cups of Green Tea a day.  There are antioxidants in Green tea called Catechins that slow down and stop the growth of cancer cells. Many research studies have shown that 2-3 cups of green tea a day can decrease your risk of all cancers. Green Tea also helps alkalinize the body and strengthen the immune system.

5) Listen To Your Body: We are all biogenetically unique which means one meal plan does not serve all. One man’s food can be another man’s poison. If you eat a particular type of food and you feel fatigued, bloated, break out in a rash or have indigestion then listen to your body and adjust your meals. Healthy eating is also a journey to find what foods work best with your body chemistry so you can function at your best.
