5/15/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

My philosophy for attaining a healthy, trim body is not about dieting.  It’s about clean, eating to keep you feeling full and energized.

You can achieve those goals with some simple tricks to remember:

1. Eat seasonal fruits and veggies of many different colors-   It sounds silly, but it helps diversify your nutritional intake.  Purple cabbage, green spinach, pink grapefruit, orange/red/yellow sweet peppers…veggies and many fruits have lots of water in them and that helps you to keep feeling full.

2. Eat enough lean protein and fiber.  Both forms make you feel full.  When moving toward a higher fiber diet, more gradually to control the side effects. 

3. Choose whole grains over refined white wheat.  Most refined wheat is white and bleached, and it leaves  you wanting more.

4. Start meals with broth based soup.  It fills you up, while providing nutrition.  Steer clear of cream based soups that had calories.

5.Try to stay organized with mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks-  This will keep your energy even through the day, which keeps you from bingeing in the late afternoon or after dinner.  Try keeping no-salt roasted nuts, fruit, laughing cow cheese and whole wheat, low fat crackers in your car or desk for scheduled eating throughout your day.

Clean eating takes a bit of planning, but the rewards in health and energy are HUGE!
