Health Tip #5: Eat Healthy Foods Deborah Nelson+ May 3, 2021

Eat Healthy Foods

This might be the most important change you can make.  My motto is “Only Eat Good Food.”  Read all labels to see what is in the food you are putting in your body.  If you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it!  Check the fat, sugar, and sodium content.  Try to avoid fast foods as much as possible.

Instead, try to eat whole foods – fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.  There are many resources available about what to eat and when to eat it.  Avoid fad diets and search for sensible solutions to your nutritional challenges.

Sometimes, an appointment with a dietician is all you need to help fine-tune your diet.  If you consider your food as “fuel” to get you through each day, you can see how important your food choices are.  Donuts and candy aren’t “fuel” for anything.  They just cause your blood sugar to spike and make you gain weight.

Given all you have to do in your life, wouldn’t you rather spend your time eating food that will help you accomplish what you want to achieve?
