As a Busy Mom, my health has often been compromised.
It felt like I was sick all the time!
That was when I decided that I needed to focus on how I eat, what I eat, and what supplements I take to help improve my health.
Since making that change I went from feeling sick all the time, to being sick only once in 3 years.
So I want to share a few tips around How to become a healthy eater and then Choosing to become a healthy eater!
How to Become a Healthy Eater?
Becoming a healthy eater requires you to become educated and smart about what is healthy eating.
Eating healthy requires quite a bit of mindset tweaking and understanding how you eat in the first place. In order to really understand how you currently eat and how you want to change, you have to first become aware of what you are eating.
That means you need to start tracking what you are eating. I don't want you to think too much into this, don't start worrying about your calories, carbs, fat, or protein. Instead grab a lined notebook that you can carry around with you and write out everything you eat.
Remember, NO JUDGEMENT!!
You are in discovery phase right now. Don't judge anything that you are eating. But keep track of it for about 1-2 weeks.
Some of the things you may discover is that you might eat too much or maybe not enough. You may eat foods that are sometimes really nutritious and sometimes not as nutritious. Again though, this all about discovery.
If it helps, think of yourself as the scientist who is running an experiment. Put a different name in your notebook for whose food you are tracking. You could even make it a game if you want.
Now that you've decided to start tracking your food, it's time for the evaluation!
What does it mean to be a Healthy Eater?
Healthy eating is a way of life, something that you do to enhance your body and your lifestyle.
