.Clean and Healthy Life.

.Healthy Living.
.Clean Food. Good Exercise. Healthy Life.

Of course, I am a girl and I don’t know one girl who doesn’t struggle with their personal self image. Honestly though, this isn’t what this is all about for me. I really want to get healthy and be in the best possibly health and shape for my body. I want to make sure that what goes into my body is healthy for me and isn’t causing problems in the long run. So I have been really digging into this healthy living and if I want to be successful with it, I know I can’t just wave a magic wand and do it over night. So this is my personal plan and steps that I think will help me improve my health , inside and out.!
-simplify- I am going to stop worrying about calories and portion size, but be more worried about color, variety, and freshness. I know that portion size is important, but moderation is key in that area.
-time- I am going to start slow and take a few things out of my daily eating, like junk food. No more snacking on random stuff because it is at my hands. I am going to start eating healthier options for the in between meals. Nuts, fruits, and veggies.
-healthy plate- Harvard School of Public Health made a diagram that helps best understand this healthy eating plate; less of the unhealthy such as refined sugars and saturated fats, and more of the healthy such as fruits, veggies, and protein. Olive/Canola Oil is replacement for butter. I should be drinking more water, tea, and coffee with little or no sugar. I should be eating whole grains and healthy protein. Fruits and Veggies; the more the better and potatoes do not count.
-night eating- I am going to avoid eating late at night and eat when my body is most active. Studies have shown that if you give yourself a 14-16 hour break from dinner to breakfast it helps regulate your digestive system so that your body will regulate and help maintain your weight.
-smaller meals- I am already someone who eats smaller more frequent meals, but I am going to make it a priority to eat a healthy breakfast and then eat small healthy snacks between larger more sustainable meals.
I think these give things will help me get a kick start into healthy living and I think they are great goals that will help me get into a more healthy life style. If you want more information from the website that has helped me out a lot, check it out.
