When it comes to eating healthy, there are certain things you should remember so you don’t succumb to the almighty germ. When you eat healthy, you feel more awake, feel better, feel more energetic, and you rarely get sick or feel worn out.
There’s a reason why guys who are out of shape get winded when just walking up some stairs, and it’s not only because they never exercise. It’s because their diets most likely are bad, and they’re not getting the right amount of nutrition to stave off fatigue.
So here are the 10 commandments for staying healthy:
#1 – Be Active
When you’re active, you build up a good appetite, and this means you’ll eat healthier. Prepare in advance so you’re not too hungry to cook anything.
#2 – Be Smart
Be smart about your food choices. McDonald’s after a workout is like putting diesel fuel in your regular gas car. Skip that noise, and head to your fridge.
#3 – Skip the Sweets
Suagr is not that good for you, at least in excess like a lot of people do. If you eat too much, it turns right to fat, so limit it or skip it altogether.
#4 – Eat in Moderation
Eating in moderation means don’t gorge yourself at each meal. This is a one-way ticket to fat land, and the tickets are on sale.
#5 – Eat in Small Meals
Eating small meals allows your body to catch up to your calories and digest them faster. 3 of these per day, and you won’t get fat usually.
#6 – Protein, Protein, Protein
Protein makes you feel full for a long time, so eating plenty of it will be enough to make you feel full and allow you to fight the urge to eat more.
#7 – Carbs are Your Best Buds
Despite what everyone thinks, carbs are pretty solid for you. You get plenty of energy from them, and they’re usually pretty tasty.
#8 – Greens Win
Green veggies are your best friends too, and it’s because they contain so many vitamins and essential nutrients that you couldn’t live without them for too long. You need these in your life, so don’t skip them.
#9 – Salad is Stupid
Salad with mostly lettuce is really stupid. For one, lettuce is devoid of nutrition except for water. Plus, you don’t want to fill up on fillers, really. What’s the point?
#10 – Eat Slowly
Eating slowly will fight off heartburn, fat gain, and overeating. When you eat slowly, your stomach is able to catch up, and you’ll feel full almost half as fast than if you ate super-fast and your brain couldn’t catch up in time.
