The Foundation to Good Health

It starts with what you put into your mouth.
Think about it – we all know that food contains calories. We all know that the more we move, the more calories we burn. It is safe to assume that if we pay attention to what we eat, we will improve our health. So now it comes down to the quality of your calories.

Again – we all know sugar is not good for us. There is also a huge movement towards eating ‘Whole Foods’ and not processed junk. So far, this is easy. Avoid Sugar, Eat Whole Foods. That is a great start.

Well, it gets way more complicated than that – but only if you are trying to figure out how to eat the crappy food that is pushed on us every day. If you are trying to figure out how to take the sugar out of a Pop-tart, or the fat out of a piece if cake, you are going to fail.

Fake sugars are just as bad a real sugar – in fact, they are even worse.

It is simple when it comes down to it – Eat meat, healthy fat, veggies and some fruit.
Seriously – look at your plate –
Meat? 4-5oz of chicken – check
Veggies? add some broccoli and lettuce – check
Fat? add an avocado – check

That wasn’t hard.
Repeat 3x a day.
