A Simple Way to Make You Think About What You Eat

what you eat

“What you eat literally becomes you.” After reading the infographic above especially that particular sentence, it’s impossible not to feel a little queasy when you imagine all those things that you’ve been stuffing in your mouth lately.

This should be more than enough to motivate you to eat healthier! Contrary to popular notion, healthy eating doesn’t mean sacrificing taste and enjoyment. Healthy foods are not bland and tasteless, many actually taste great. And you don’t have to be too strict on yourself either.

The first thing that you need to do is to set yourself up for success. If you think you’re going to fail right from the start, that’s surely what’s going to happen. Turning over a healthier leaf doesn’t have to be one big change. It might be too overwhelming. Take baby steps instead.

If counting calories or measuring portions seem too complicated with you, simplify. It’s way easier to consider variety, color, quality and freshness when making food choices. Eat more colorful vegetables. Go for dishes made with fresh ingredients. Always check the quality of what you’re eating.

And it’s not just about what you eat but what you drink as well. Are you a soda lover? That’s something that you have to work on. Drink more water. Water flushes out toxins from the body. And it doesn’t have harmful chemicals like soda which would only harm your health in the long run.

See, eating healthy isn’t rocket science. There’s no excuse for you not to.
