Nutrition and weight loss are often confusing and difficult to understand and to maintain the positive changes either due to inconvenience, cost or misunderstandings about health. Here are some general health considerations for attaining overall better health and for weight loss.
- First eat a good breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, by far. What happens for many people, isthey forget to eat breakfast or don't have time to eat breakfast. Then by mid morning their energy levels are depleted and they are craving a quick sugar boost. So many people will grab a quick snack, sugary beverage or office treat which are usually high in sugar and fat. This spikes the sugar in the blood and gets the body on a roller coaster of too much or not enough sugar. So the key consideration here is, eat a big breakfast with good protein, fiber foods and plenty of fruits. Eating a big breakfast reduces those mid morning cravings for sweets and fats. Also, a good time to take natural supplements.
- Next, eat a medium lunch with plenty of salad, veggies, and fruits. Typically when people eat a big breakfast they are not super hungry for lunch but it is still important to eat a medium lunch.
- Lastly, eat a light dinner with a salad and veggies, preferably before 7pm. Real important to eat a lighter dinner because it allows your body to fully digest the food and fully repair itself. When people eat a big dinner, later a night, the body spends most of the night trying to digest the food, which makes it more difficult to get deep restful sleep. When you eat a light dinner, then you may sleep better and wake up earlier, hungry for a big breakfast. It is a routine pattern that works best for the body.
- Water is so important to good health. Drinking water upon waking and throughout the day is important to help our bodies cleanse and recover. A good home water filter may be valuable as they can make water taste better by filtering out the chemicals from the water treatment plant. Enviro-wave filter is an excellent filter and a great value.
