Whether you’re looking to improve energy, aid digestion, manage weight goals, or everything in between, focusing on daily eating strategies will help you reach your final destination faster. The more we practice these strategies, the quicker they become a part of our lives, helping us ultimately feel our very best.
Here are a few simple ways to make your days, months, and year—better.
1) Take A Breather. Try to make each meal last 20 minutes. Why? it allows enough time for the stomach and brain to sync and say, “Hey! I’m actually full.” Eating too quickly prevents us from truly enjoying our food, and also encourages overeating. Find this to be difficult? Try eating with your non-dominant hand or placing your fork down every 2-3 bites.
2) Support Digestion. Consider adding apple cider vinegar (ACV) once a day to your daily eating regimen. Mixing 1 TBSP of ACV in 4 oz. of water a few minutes before a meal can serve as an all-natural digestive aid. This is especially helpful for those who suffer from regular bloating.
Bye Bye Bloat contains ginger, dandelion, and fenugreek, along with a comprehensive digestive enzyme formula that helps balance blood sugar and cortisol levels, breakdown nutrients, and reduce bloating and water retention in the midline.*
3) Detox Naturally With Crucifers. Incorporate cruciferous veggies at least 3 times a week. Crucifers are rich in fiber and are amazing when it comes to supporting our body’s natural detoxification system. More efficient detox = less risk for disease. (I love broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts!)
Sparkle Fiber contains an all-natural formula that supports digestion, helps the body remove toxins for glowing skin, and improves energy so you can take on your day.*
4) Evaluate Caffeine And Sugar Intake For An Entire Week. Brake check! We’ve all been there: A few large cups of coffee one day, and a few handfuls of candy the next in order to get through a slump. However, we have to make sure they don’t become an ingrained habit. A safe goal for most women is under 200 mg of caffeine and under 25 grams of added sugar daily. If you find that it’s tough to function most days without one or both of these popular “staples,” it’s officially time to re-evaluate your diet and lifestyle!
