You may be trying desperately to keep up. You've changed your milk to non-dairy, incorporated supplements, avoided as much added sugar as you possibly can, and you've even said goodbye to gluten.
However, it's still not enough. This may make you wonder, what the heck should you be eating to actually be healthy?
This is a complicated question, and has even more complicated answers. What works for one person may not necessarily work the same way for you. For example, you may have a friend who has recently turned vegan and lost a ton of weight. Her success led you to try it, but you ended up gaining an extra five pounds.
In your case: vegan, fail.
You may also notice doctors, researchers and want to be know-it-alls are so quick to critique your (and other) food habits, but ultimately don't offer any solutions. Articles and commercials often tell you don't eat certain foods, but they don't suggest any of the types of foods you should be eating or other resources for you to utilize to eat healthier.
What are three tips to help you make better decisions to stay healthy?
- Take a look at nutritional information
- Portion control
- Find what works for you and stick to it (juicing, smoothies, etc.)
