Tip #1: Eat Nutrient Dense Whole Foods
Easy strategy? Fill half your lunch and dinner plate with a rainbow of vegetables.
Tip #2: Optimize Digestion
Easy strategy? When sitting down to a meal, take a deep breath and chew your food! Chewing thoroughly is important for proper digestion.
Tip #3: Balance Blood Sugar
Easy strategy? Allow one treat per day and enjoy it thoroughly. In general, avoid obvious added sugars that stress the whole body.
Tip #4: Do Not Fear Fat!
Easy strategy? Add minimally processed, unrefined, healthy fats to your diet daily for cell and brain health and happiness. Like what? Coconut Oil, Butter, Ghee, Olive and Sesame Oils, to name a few.
Tip #5: Increase Minerals
Easy strategy? Eat sea salt. Avoid table salt. Sea salt contains naturally occurring trace minerals your body is hungry for. Table salt is refined and only contains sodium. Minerals help the body’s nerve signaling and conduction.
Tip #6: Hydrate daily
Easy strategy? Drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces, not to exceed 100 ounces per day. Example: A 150 pound person should drink 75 ounces of water per day. That is approximately nine 8 ounce glasses of water or three 24 ounce water bottles. Drink clean, plain water. Coffee, Tea and Juice don’t count.
