IT'S NOT JUST WHAT YOU EAT, IT'S HOW YOU EAT!

By Johnkennedy Nnanna

Healthy eating is more than the food on your plate—it is also about how you think about food. It is important to slow down and think about food as nourishment rather than just something to gulp down in between meetings or on the way to pick up the kids or dash down to the office.



Eat breakfast, and eat smaller meals throughout the day. A healthy breakfast can jumpstart your metabolism, and eating small, healthy meals throughout the day (rather than the standard three large meals) keeps your energy up and your metabolism going.

Eat with others whenever possible. Eating with other people has numerous social and emotional benefits and allows you to model healthy eating habits. Eating in front of the TV or computer often leads to mindless overeating.

Water. Water helps flush our systems of waste products and toxins, yet many people go through life dehydrated, causing tiredness, low energy, and headaches. It is common to mistake thirst for hunger, so staying well hydrated will also help you make healthier food choices.

Avoid eating at night. Try to eat dinner earlier in the day. No meal after 8pm. Eat only when you are most active and giving your digestive system a long break each day, may help regulate your weight.

Exercise. Find something active that you like to do and add it to your day. The benefits of lifelong exercise are abundant and REGULAR EXERCISE may even motivate you to make healthy food choices a habit.

You should feel satisfied at the end of a meal, but not stuffed. The key foundation for any healthy diet is MODERATION.
