SIMPLE Do’s & Don’ts To A Healthier Lifestyle

DO:

1. Drink water: Water is the most essential nutrient for cells. For added flavor, try adding fresh fruits, cucumber slices or lemon and lime wedges to ice-cold water.

2. Eat a “mixed” breakfast that includes foods containing a little carbohydrate, a little protein and a little fat. For example, eggs and a bowl of fruit or a protein shake with soy milk and a banana includes three essential macronutrients, provides energy and tastes good, too.

3. Eat less fat. The average American eats the equivalent of a stick of margarine a day, most of which is hidden in processed foods

4. Increase the amount of fiber in your diet. Fiber helps maintain colon health

DON’T:

1. DON’T rely on pills for nutrition. Pills cannot substitute for a whole food. Foods contain much more than just vitamins and minerals.

2. DON’T become dehydrated.

3. DON’T eat sugary foods in the morning. A burst of refined sugar on an empty stomach will trigger a flood of insulin that suppresses the immune system and feeds any abnormal cells.
