Tips on How to live a Healthier Life


Get Healthy today with these tipsEat Organic when Possible

 

Adding 2 new healthy food choices to your diet, then every week add 2 more, be sure to include the 2 from the week before.  Before you know it you have replaced unhealthy food and you are feeling better.


As you add new foods to your diet create a list of healthy food choices you and your family enjoy.


 When creating your shopping list for the week pick from this list for your menu.  Put this food list on your fridge so you can easily refer to it.


Take a 30 min walk each day.  Take the dog he will love you for it.  (My cats like to go along also) A good time to do this may be after work so that you can transition from work stress to home.


Do a fun hobby activity for at least 30 min a day.


Start a regular sleep schedule.


Get up in time to eat breakfast.  Eat breakfast with in ½ hour of rising.


Avoid all soda drinks


Drink bottled or filtered water (1/2 oz. per pound of body weight daily.


Eat 3 meals and 2 snacks a day to spread out your total caloric intake evenly between the meals.  Eat at regular intervals each day spreading the time between each meal to 4-5 hours.  Your body needs to replenish the energy used from the last meal.


 

 Snacks are not meals and should be during the morning and afternoon, or when you are using up your energy resources from the last meal.  Eat raw nuts and seeds for a snack or even as part of a meal.


Avoid all processed food.  Or at least cut them down to an occasional item in your diet.


Eat as many fresh fruits and vegetables as possible.  Eat them raw when possible.


Plan each meal to include all the food groups in each meal.  A plate should be divided by ½ vegetables, ¼ carbohydrates, and ¼ proteins.


Eliminate refined and sugared foods from your diet.  After a while you will not even have a taste for them because you have grown to enjoy fruits and vegetables more.   There are so many delicious fruits and so many fun ways to enjoy them.  You will not miss sugared treats.


Choose organic foods when possible, even meats


Eat from as many colors of the rainbow as you can

    This list is an evergreen list for everyone in the world to use, you should consider translating it to many other languages! Whoever reads this and disagree surely has a problem. As you might know, I do my utmost best to include fruits and veggies in my diet each and every day.

    Fresh fruits and vegetables does for your body great wonders. Water is the best drink there is and yet so many people suppress it from their diet. I would also suggest that you do a post on the importance of water in the diet. It is simple but yet effective.

    Thank you for sharing this post with the world to see.

    Best,
    Jason.

    Excellent article on an important topic. You can’t take your health for granted and you have pin pointed so many ways to stay healthy.

    I can never have enough fruit, but wish I lived near to where it is produced, rather than having fruit that was picked too early whilst unripe. I was spoilt, as I once lived in East Africa where the fruit was truly amazing.

      Rob. Thank You for stopping by my site and for the encouraging comments. I understand about the fruit and being fresh. It tastes so much better. If there are any farm stands or farmers markets near you that would be a great place to find fresh fruit in season. Thanks Again. Robin.

    Thanks for this very informative and helpful post! The first thing I am feeling guilty is missing the walk with my dogs for the past few weeks.

    • Robin Post author

      Fred. Thank you for stopping by. I know how easy it is to get out of the habit of exercising. And I think your dogs miss it as well. Hope that you are able to re-establish your routine soon. Robin
