Nutrition Hacks You Need in Your Life
By Sara Butler
Is improved health and wellness on your radar? One of the best ways to get healthy and to stay that way is to reach and maintain a healthy weight. You have your pick of fad foods and gimmicks to help you kick-start your journey to a healthy weight, but you don't really need those. What you do need is a few tried-and-true tricks that actually work. Here are some nutrition hacks that have stood the test of time to help you get healthy and stay that way.
Drink Water Before You Eat
The simple act of drinking a glass of water before a meal can help you to eat fewer calories during your meal. This works in a couple of ways. First, it can help to rev up your metabolism in order to process the food you're about to eat more efficiently. Second, it helps you to feel fuller faster. Plus, you're hydrating your body, which can help it to work at its very best.
Eat More Eggs
Eggs are back! For a while, it was thought that the yolk of eggs was too high in cholesterol to be healthy, but it's now known that is simply not the case. First thing in the morning, have yourself some scrambled eggs with a handful of spinach, or maybe hard boil some eggs for a breakfast on the go. Their protein will help you to feel fuller for longer and provide your body with important vitamins and minerals that help it to function optimally.
Have a Green Banana
A fruit's ripeness can have an impact on its health benefits. Often, fruits that aren't as ripe have less sugar and a bit more fiber. That's because as the fruit ripens it often becomes sweeter. Having a green banana in the morning can ensure you're getting less sugar but also getting food that will help you to feel full and satisfied until lunchtime rolls around.
There are times when it's good to eat a yellow or even a brown banana. If you're looking for a boost before or after a workout, ripe bananas are the ticket. The rest of the time, go green!
These nutrition hacks can help you to take small steps toward a healthier diet, but the best thing you can really do is consume whole foods that aren't processed.
