Our lifestyle from how we eat to how we sleep is affected by our daily habits. Habits are simply hard to break, which is why weight loss can be so daunting to many people. When you work with our wellness coach, he starts by talking about these daily habits and how we can reprogram our brains to make necessary changes.
Making a simple tweak to our daily eating habits is one way to make positive changes to our overall health. Let’s talk about easy tips you can start incorporating today.
Stop Drinking Soda
This might be a hard one for some people, but drinking sugary drinks is one of the easiest ways to keep the weight on. Cut it out and you may notice changes right away. Loading up on sugary drinks like soda may give you momentary energy but it doesn’t sustain you for long.
Try drinking more water. I know there are a lot of you out there who don’t drink water or who don’t consider drinking water when you feel thirsty; however, water is the best thing you can reach for when you are feeling dehydrated. If you can’t bring yourself to drink plain water, try infusing it with fruit. Strawberries, lemons and limes, or cucumbers make for delicious drinks.
If you don’t like water or aren’t used to drinking it, train yourself. Try it each day for a week, and you’ll most likely get the hang of it.
Take Care Of Your Gut Health
Eating foods rich in probiotics can help your gut and overall health. Find yogurts that are packed with probiotics and pack them in your lunch or have yogurt as a snack.
Taking a probiotic supplement is also a great way to take care of your gut health. Managing the healthy bacteria in your gut can help chronic issues like obesity. If you need help selecting a good supplement, contact us today for help!
And speaking of probiotics…
Eat More Fruits And Vegetables
Many fruits and vegetables are packed with fiber and can help with your overall gut health as well.
Try eating more vegetables like spinach, carrots, and garlic – veggies packed with minerals and vitamins that support your health. Think of ways to add just one veggie to your dinner plate each day. Buying broccoli already in a steam bag that you can pop in a microwave is a fast and easy way to add veggies to your dinner without overthinking things.
