What to eat or what not to eat… That is the question

  • Do not buy or eat anything unless you have read the ingredient label and know what it is composed of. 
  • Read all labels on foods you want to purchase.
  • If you do not understand even one ingredient on a label, do not buy the product.
  • Take a dictionary with you to the market so you can understand some of the complicated words that are used for additives, sugars, preservatives, and dyes…or ask Google.
  • Stay away from any sugars, including cakes, candies, and homemade sweets.
  • Women should consume no more than 100 calories of added sugars per day, and men no more than 150.
  • Complex carbohydrates should account for 40% to 60% of your total daily calorie intake. 
  • Make sure to intake complex carbohydrates instead of simple carbohydrates.
  • Stay away from stimulants.
  • Learn to focus and relax.
  • Stretch daily whether you think you needed or not.
  • Give yourself 15 minutes a day to yourself somewhere where you can wind down.
  • Fulfill your body’s needs; reject your mind’s deceptive cravings.
  • Eat in restaurants you trust to have clean, natural food.
  • Eat only salads or lean protein from restaurants when you are not sure of their foods.
  • Stay away from sauces and creams.
  • Eat to live, don’t live to eat – and know the difference.
  • Research what vitamins are good supplements for what conditions or deficiencies and take them only when there’s a need.  More is not better and always is not wise.  (Please see vitamins below.)
