Eating well doesn’t need to be complicated or restrictive or involve cutting out food you enjoy.
For the most part; eat because you’re hungry, eat food you enjoy and eat food that nourishes your body.
If you’re a little unsure with what to eat to best nourish your body, could you…
- Increase your fruit & veg intake?
- Prepare or cook more of your own food from scratch?
- Be more mindful of your appetite and whether or not you’re eating for reasons other than hunger?
Start by doing any one of these and you’ll be heading the right direction to improving your nutrition and health.
If you remove yourself, even if just for a week or two, from all the media hype around how you should eat, and go back to basics, you might find that you know more than you think about how to feed yourself well.
This might include unfollowing people who are promoting specific diets that restrict foods, people who claim “their” way of eating is the best and/or people who claim they have the answer to weight loss.
If after doing this, you are still struggling to manage your eating and health, then perhaps seeking help from a dietitian could be the next step.
