7 Health and Nutrition Tips For March 2018
1. Stop Drinking Sugar Calories
You must know by now that sugary drinks are the most fattening things you can put into your body. The reason for this is because liquid sugar calories do not get registered by the brain in the same way as calories from solid foods. So when you drink soda, you end up eating more total calories. Keep in mind that fruit juices are almost as bad as soda in this regard.
2. Eat Fatty Fish
I always tell my client to eat fish. Pretty much most people agree that fish is healthy. This is fatty fish like salmon is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and various other nutrients
3. Get Enough Sleep
Don’t get into bed and start playing on your smartphone or tablet. The importance of getting enough quality sleep cannot be overstated. It may be just as important as diet and exercise, if not more. Having lack of sleep can drive insulin resistance, it can throw your appetite hormones out of whack and reduce your physical and mental performance.
4. Drink Plenty of Water, Especially Before Meals
Water should be consumed throughout the day. Drinking enough water can have numerous benefits. In fact, drinking water can help boost the number of calories you burn. The best time to drink water is half an hour before meals. A recent study showed that half a litre of water, 30 minutes before each meal, increased weight loss by 44%.
5. Take Vitamin D3 If You Don’t Get Much Sun
Back in the day, most people got their vitamin D from the sun. The problem is that most people don’t get much sun these days depending on your location. They either live where there is no sun, or they stay inside most of the day.
6. Don’t Smoke or Don’t Take Drugs, and Only Drink in Moderation
If you’re a smoker or abuse drugs, then, unfortunately, diet and exercise are the least of your worries. Get some professional advice to help support you in controlling this. Sometimes it’s hard to cut alcohol out of your life, but if you do then do so in moderation only.
7. Don’t Overcook or Burn Your Meat
To those who do eat it, meat can be a nutritious and healthy part of your diet. It is very high in protein and contains various important nutrients. The problems usually occur when meat is overcooked and burnt which can lead to the formation of harmful compounds that raise the risk of cancer.
