The meaning of the word diet as a verb is “to feed”. Your diet consists of foods considered in terms of its qualities, composition, and its effects on your health. I receive many questions regarding how people can release weight. It is through upgrading your current “diet” with foods that support your body to give your systems and organs the nutrients they need to function optimally.
Here are a few diet myths I would like to address:
True or False?
1. Drink 2 glasses of water before every meal to fill up your stomach: FALSE
This was a quick fix idea to help people feel full. However, this can dilute digestive juices and cause digestive disturbances. Drink liquids throughout the entire day, and monitor during meal times.
2. Don’t eat dinner after 7 pm: FALSE (kinda:)
When the days become longer, we tend to want to absorb the outdoors. It is totally ok to have a relaxing dinner later than 7 pm. Many other cultures have perfected this and remain healthy. However, if you tend to over eat late @ night, it is due to an imbalance of Macronutrients through out the day or maybe emotional. The liver performs a majority of it functions in the middle of the night, so having less to digest prior to bed will support the liver’s duties.
3. Rotating your conscious breakfast meals daily supports longevity? TRUE
Many people eat the same breakfast 5-7 days a week, especially oatmeal. I recommend to add a rotation of quality breakfast meals, such as eggs with veggies, Vegetable juice & salmon, and Protein shake with spinach.
Diet is about feeding your body correctly to prevent blood sugar drops, mood swings, and dis-ease.
Cheers to you & your diet,
