Observe your eating and drinking habits!
Take some time and observe exactly your eating and drinking habits. The consume of fruits, vegetables, sweets, sugar, alcohol, coffee etc.. I know it´s sometimes not easy to be really honest about some addictions but these areas can make a fast improvement in your healthy life.
- Try to eat 5 portions of fruits and vegetables a day (one portion is a handful) – if you are busy take a fresh juice or smoothie instead! But watch out: There are many smoothies on the market with additional sugar in it! This could be a huge trap!
- How much do you consume alcohol? Please be honest to yourself! If you drink every day a glass of wine or something similar you have already acquired a drinking
problem and sometimes awareness is enough in doing the next step: reduce it! It´s not necessary to avoid alcohol completely but try to drink it for example only two or three times a week! This will have a great effect for
your healthy status and will maybe reduce your weight! You only need two weeks and afterwards you don´t need this stuff on a
regularly basis and I´m sure you will see a positive result also with your sleeping habits.
- Sugar is all around and it´s easy to be seduced through merchandising – I´m also addicted to chocolate and other goodies! The reality is that consuming too much sugar will have a detrimental effect on your health: Sugar provides the body with empty calories that give us energy without any nutrients. As a result, we eat more without feeling full or satisfied.
The key thing to remember is that overall, eating healthily is all about balance and not losing enjoyment.
