Underrated Nutrition Tips.
The goal should always be to ‘thrive’ and not just ‘survive’…Especially when it comes to fueling your workouts and ‘feeling your best’.
And it doesn’t have to be complicated to be effective.
These basic principles are really underrated, don’t require downloading MyFitnessPal and tracking everything you put in your mouth or sticking to rigid plans.
Seems simple and it is – if you make sensible choices, most of the time, you probably won’t go far wrong.
Often, we use not knowing exactly what to do as an excuse to do nothing…Or, the complete opposite of what would align with our goals.
“Oh, I don’t know what to eat for dinner that would be ‘optimal’, so I’ll just order Chinese instead” …Knowing fine well that’s not going to be a sensible choice in line with your goals.
Sit down and enjoy your meals.
Build your meals around a protein source (20-30g per meal) and have fruit and/or veg with each meal.
Mindful Snacking Only
I’ve been known to be anti-snacking. Now, I am not anti-snacking, but I am anti mindless snacking.
The real issue with snacking is that things add up without even noticing or even getting the satiety benefits of actually eating a proper meal.
A lot of the satiety we get from food is psychological as well as physiological – if you don’t remember eating half a chocolate bar, the likelihood is you will eat more at your next meal.
If you are mindful of food intake then you will also be less hungry/hangry.
Track but Don’t Track
You don’t need to track everything to get the benefits of tracking.
Research does show that people who write down their food intake habitually eat less – probably because it’s bringing awareness and conscious choice to food intake.
Open the notes section on your phone and simply write down everything you eat during the day.
No need to look at calories. A simple list will do!
