Mindful Eating

24 Apr

Mindful

Mindful eating means being present while eating. Eating without distractions.

A recent study in the UK demonstrates that people who were distracted while eating consumed more calories than those who were not.

Try eating while sitting down, turn TV and all electronic devices OFF and concentrate on eating, the flavors, the texture of the food, chewing and how much you are enjoying your healthy meal.

Remember… Eat Healthy, Be Happy!

Fiber = Healthy Digestive System and More!

19 Mar

Fiber is a great supplement, specially now that so many people are  consuming the SAD diet (Standard American Diet), a diet that lacks fiber and many other nutrients.

Fiber is great for stabilizing blood sugar, it helps lower cholesterol, it prevents colon cancer, hemorrhoids, constipation, alleviates irritable bowel syndrome symptoms and studies show it may even help people lose weight!

In addition to taking a supplement make sure you include foods to your diet, which are high in fiber:

  • Whole grains
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Nuts
  • Brown rice
  • Seeds
  • Lentils
  • Beans

Remember… Eat Healthy, Be Happy!

Drastic diets can lead to weight gain in the long term.

The best option is to learn how to eat healthy. Adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet and reducing processed foods and saturated fats, can lead to weight loss and prevent disease.
