4 Tips to Maintain a Healthy Diet

When you are under the care of the Family Chiropractic Care team, we provide comprehensive services aimed at increasing your overall body wellness. In addition to chiropractic adjustments and deep tissue massages, we also evaluate your nutritional health and guide you towards eating healthy. Here are 4 tips to maintain a healthy diet that our professional nutritionist routinely provides to our clients:

  1. Eat out less. When you prepare your own meals, you can exclude unhealthy ingredients from your meal and control the amount of salt, sugar and fat used during preparation and cooking stage. Conversely, when you eat out, you can never be sure how the food was prepared or of the fat, sugar and salt content.
  2. Eliminate processed foods and reduce your intake of unhealthy fats, salts, refined sugars and starches. Eating processed foods and unhealthy ingredients leads to fatigue, increases risk of injuries, and decreases motivation and productivity. Instead, create meals made with fresh ingredients. Also, use healthy fats for cooking, such as olive oil, and eat healthy carbs, like whole wheat, brown rice, millet, quinoa, and barley.
  3. Include a variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and lean proteins in your diet. A varied diet rich in healthy ingredients is a sure way to maintain a healthy diet. Examples of healthy food choices include: whole grains, leafy green and colorful vegetables, citrus fruits, berries, legumes, almonds, and sunflower seeds.
  4. Drink plenty of water. Your body needs water to stay hydrated and have a healthy digestive system that flushes out toxins. You can replace sugary beverages with water, while also satisfying your thirst.
