Weight Loss Tip - Feed Your Mind

 Feed Your Mind (with New Resources)

In addition to adopting a superfood shake for one meal a day, you need to pay serious attention to your overall diet in order to shed your desired weight. It’s the combination of improved diet and workouts that will take you to your goal.

We make it a priority to fill our minds with nutrition tips, which resulted in creating a more intense awareness of what we were eating and what we should be eating for our wellness lifestyle.

A good place to start is the new U.S. Department of Agriculture’s MyPlate Icon Guide to healthy nutrition at http://ChooseMyPlate.gov. The simple plate icon, which replaces the more traditional pyramid icon, is designed to help all Americans shift to a more plant-based diet in appropriate portions.

Also at www.ChooseMyPlate.gov you’ll find menus, recipes and budget tips in alignment with the new MyPlate guidelines.

A few more of our favorite Web resources for nutrition guidance are
  • www.RealAge,.com,
  • www.cookinglight.com, and 
  • www.foodnetwork.com/healthy-eating/index.html.
Focusing on the right foods and tasty recipes is essential for your wellness program.

Here are a few supplemental techniques that continue to work for our weight-management:
  • Reduce portion size;
  • Take more time to completely chew your food;
  • Stop when you’re full, not necessarily when your plate is empty;
  • Try 5 to 7 small meals per day versus the traditional 3 meals a day;
  • Stop nighttime snacks and consume no food within 3 hours of bedtime;
  • Record what you eat – an intake and exercise journal can help you keep honest and have a record of your progress.
Create a nutrition plan that fits your lifestyle and that you can afford on your budget.
