Nutrition Tips

1.) Eat 5-6 small meals spaced evenly throughout the day.
2.) Avoid gluten for 2 weeks to see if you feel better and if you add it back in and start feeling bad, cut it out of your diet. Gluten is in wheat, rye, barley, spelt, kamut, and triticale.
3.) Completely cut out partially hydrogenated oils.
4.) Cut down on sugar, especially refined sugar. Eat about 5 grams or less at most meals
5.) Eat your fractions. Divide up your plate into 1/2 veggies, 1/4 whole grains, and 1/4 protein. Add in 1 TB fat.
6.) Use Celtic sea salt instead of regular table salt.
7.) Eat a different green veggie every week.
8.) Implement omega-3's into your diet through wild-caught salmon, grass-fed beef, and/or a high quality fish oil.
9.) Eat different whole-grains than you normally do: quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth, kamut, or brown rice.
10.) Eat grass-fed beef instead of corn-fed beef
11.) Try real almond or peanut butter. Avoid Skippy, Jif, and Peter Pan brands.
12.) Eat organic and locally grown whenever possible.
13.) Drink 1/2 your body weight in water in ounces and add more if you work out or drink caffiene.
14.) Enjoy your food! Often we eat too much when we eat too fast.
