We here at StrongBoard love working out, but realize working out doesn’t do much if you eat food that isn’t good for you. We’d like to give you some tips which will help you stay on track with your dietary goals, so you can harness maximum energy, intensity, and improvement from your workouts heading into swimsuit season.
The odds are stacked against you when trying to eat healthy, which is why it’s necessary to have a plan of attack. Your best bet for eating healthy is preparing most of your meals. Eating out means you can’t always control what goes into your meal. It’s best to create meals when there are the fewest distractions, like right after waking up or before you go to bed.
If you’re trying to change your eating habits for the better, keep things simple. Start small and don’t put too much change on your plate at once or you’ll be overwhelmed and want to quit. Create opportunities for small victories, and build from there. Start by reading food labels and educating yourself on food. After eating, try to pay attention to your body. Everyone’s body is different, so being in tune with how your body reacts to certain foods is vital to making necessary changes. Last but not least, no matter what your diet is, drink lots of water. It’s recommended to drink a half gallon a day (or eight 8oz. glasses) for optimal health.
