Miss Nichole’s Nutrition Tips. . .
Last week we talked about some of my favorite general fit tips, as promised, this week is some awesome nutrition tips. We are sticking with the basics for these tips, far too often the basics get lost as we try to over complicate in hopes of finding some secret answer.
1- Drink your water! We all know this one and yet it seems to be forgotten or pushed to the side a lot. This doesn’t mean that you need to walk around with a gallon jug all day. But do be aware and strive to get a minimum of 64 oz/day. That is a minimum folks.
2- Learn to read labels. You need to be aware of what you are eating. My clients are often surprised when they read the labels to their favorite foods.
3- Avoid eating out too often. This is a big one for a lot of my clients. Lunch is often grabbed at the closest place to work and dinner picked up on the way home. These days that doesn’t mean a bunch of fast food, that is how many of my clients justify eating out 5+ times a week. You still don’t know what exactly is in your food.
4- Produce is a must! I don’t care if you love your veggies or fruit, learn to love them and eat them.
5- Avoid the box as much as possible. I realize that it isn’t always possible. I am a mom of four kids. Kids with picky eating habits and busy schedules, sometimes the box and the microwave are a life saver. But limit it.
6- Plan and prep! This is important for every single one of you. Plan out menus so that you aren’t left wondering what to eat when you are starving and your stomach is talking louder than your head. Keeps snacks handy. And if you are a Sunday prep fiend, stick with it and get it done. If you are struggling with the day to day you need to learn to become the Sunday prep fiend. It can save you!
We can’t all be pros in the kitchen like our own miss Ruthie, but that shouldn’t stop you from becoming a nutrition pro.
