10 HEALTHY EATING TIPS   Leave a comment

In my view, the lifestyle choices that need to happen for overall physical fitness improvement have three primary factors: activity level, nutrition and sleep. One problem I have experienced with tring to review and improve my nutrition is that looking at nutritional info and research can be a real walk in the jungle. However, once in a while I come across high quality info that puts smart eating into a manageable limited set of guidelines. For me, the summaries by MGySgt Paul Roarke (USMC) in Corps Strength and Stew Smith (Navy SEAL) in Navy SEAL Fitness have been manageable and effective.

Jaylin Allen and Active Swimming recently published another good manageable set of effective guidelines. I used this list to “self-check” (if you know me, you know I love a good self-check) and invite you to do the same. The abbreviated version of the list is:

1. Don’t skip breakfast
2. Stay hydrated
3. Eat like a champ (… not like a chump! As in don’t eat junk!)
4. Eat iron-rich foods
5. Make a plan
6. Don’t restrict yourself
7. Don’t count out carbs
8. Give it your all (…as in give your body what it needs, when it needs it)
9. Eat to recovery
10. Eat right
