Eating a balanced, healthy diet is more important in staying healthy than people give it credit for. More so, when you eat the Standard American Diet ("SAD"), not only is your body constantly bogged down with digesting mostly bad foods, but, in addition, your brain is lacking the nutrition it needs to think properly.
Below are a few simple ways to boost your nutrition.
1.) Eat More Veggies
No matter how many vegetables you eat, you could probably benefit from eating more. Have vegetables be the lion's share of every meal you eat, if you can.
2.) Eat For Fuel
Stop eating for mouth pleasure and think about what you're eating and how it will end up benefitting your body. Eat walnuts and avocados for healthy brain fuel, for instance. Stop eating refined sugars and empty carbs.
3.) Limit Your Intake
If the choice is eating horrible food or not eating, just don't eat. Try to extend your time after waking to eat breakfast. Stop eating past 8pm if you can. If you can limit your food intake to an 8-hour window each day, you'll start to achieve the health benefits associated with intermittent fasting.
