Day 2 Consistency (Nutrition)
Working out is never a problem, I get my workout in everyday. Nutrition on the other hand is more of a struggle. I find that during the week, with a routine, it is much easier to stay consistent and on track. I always feel like Monday is my start day to refocus. I find it much more difficult to be consistent on the weekends. I still plan ahead especially if we are going out to dinner or have other social events. I do know that when I stay consistent with eating clean I feel so much better, have more energy and a stable mood. Having a plan, prepping and being organized certainly helps with staying consistent and focused on your nutrition.
Check out my video to learn more about how I have stayed consistent with my nutrition and how it has helped me live a healthy lifestyle.
Here are a few tips I learned early on as I was making changes to my nutrition. This is what really helps me stay consistent by focusing on these few key items daily:
- Eat every 2 1/2 – 3 hours to boost your metabolism
- Drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water (example, if you weigh 130 pounds then drink at least 65 ounces)
- Eat fresh fruits and veggies
- Eat lean protein
- Focus on eating healthy fats, such as raw almonds and avocado
- Eat whole grains
- Limit your dairy intake, processed foods and alcohol
- Plan to eat healthy snacks, such as fruit, veggies and raw nuts
