4 Keys To A Smart Nutrition Plan

Food was created for a reason.  Every time you eat a piece of food it is used to develope cells in your body and the result can provide a specific benefit or a potential drawback.  Even chocolate, in certain forms, is said to protect against high blood pressure and heart disease.  That’s great news because I love chocolate.  On the other hand, if you eat nothing but 1 particular type of fruit, such as strawberry’s, you’ll be loading up on certain vitamins, but missing out on a lot of other very important nutrients. The key is to find a balance in the foods that you eat.  Remember, having too much of anything can be harmful.  Likewise, not getting enough of the proper nutrients can be just as damaging.

Think of it like this, how far do you think your car would go on watered down gas or without any oil?  About 20 to 30 miles, probably.  Your body is no different.  Deprive your body of what it needs and it’ll lose energy, break down causing you to feel terrible.  It’s important that you pay attention to what goes into your body on a daily basis.  Some foods are more powerful than others, and help you run longer on less fuel.

To give your body the proper nutrients to fuel it for optimal performance, I strongly suggest using these strategies when starting a weight loss program:

1. Control your food portions –  Who really needs to “Super-size” anything?  Everything has gotten bigger these days, especially our portion sizes. The way fast food joints and restaurants serve their food it’s typically better to cut your meal in half and eat the rest later.  Here are two articles that I wrote a few months back on portion sizes: “Perfect Portion Sizes” and “Growing Portion Sizes”.

2. Make smart substitutions –  Why not try mustard (11 calories) instead of mayonnaise (99 calories) on that deli sandwich?  Compare calories in your favorite foods using and learn more ways to cut calories without deprivation.

3. Focus on “power foods – High protein, high fiber, healthy fats and good carbs give you the most punch for your lunch.

4. Watch your eating habits – Mindless munching, emotional binging are sneaky habits that steal momentum and leave pounds. Overcome emotional eating.
