There’s a flurry of information coming at us on a regular basis. I recently read an article that gave all the reasons why the keto diet is no good. Diet fads seem to come and go and just as quickly as they rise and fall from popularity they are replaced by the next one.
Fact is, these trendy diets are really just a twisted and in some cases extreme version of the truth when it comes to eating healthy. Of course it’s all about making the sale at your expense both monetarily and health wise.
Understanding what to eat, how much and why are important basics. Eating smart reaches far beyond carb consumption and portion control. Eating smart involves understanding more about what food can do for you and how it will affect you.
Eating prioritization is one of those smart practices that everyone should know. This involves the practice of eating your food in a particular order to facilitate a desired result. For instance, eating at least seven bites or so of just the protein in your meal followed by fibrous carbs (like veggies), followed by starchy carbs (like a baked sweet potato) will help you avoid that tired lethargic, I want to take a nap feeling after you eat.
No you’re not only eating healthy you’re eating smart.
It’s hard to be motivated to exercise and stay active when you’re tired. – Stay strong, eat smart!
