If you want to feel like your best self – happy, productive, and energetic, then you need to make sure you’re eating right. The food we eat literally makes up our bodies and plays a huge role in how we feel day to day. If you want to feel like your best self, then you need to make sure you’re eating the right foods. Read on for some ideas:
Listen To Your Body
The first thing you should try to do is listen to your body. If you really listened to your body, it probably wouldn’t tell you it just wanted pizza, nor would it tell you it wanted lettuce leaves. Your body will want healthy, balanced meals. Listening to your body after years of ignoring it can be tough, but with practice it can get better.
Get Your 5 A Day
You should aim to eat lots of vegetables and fruits throughout the day. This will ensure you’re getting lots of vitamins and minerals and that you feel good.
Avoid Fad Diets
Don’t listen to anybody when they tell you you should try a fad diet. Don’t do Keto, Paleo, the Special K diet, or anything else. These diets are more trouble then they are worth and they are not sustainable in the long term. For a diet that is sustainable, it must be balanced. The infographic below can help you figure out what to avoid.
