Tip of the Day: Easy Tips for Planning a Healthy Diet and Sticking to it

Healthy eating is not about strict nutrition philosophies, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love.

Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, stabilizing your mood, and keeping yourself as healthy as possible, all of which can be achieved by learning some nutrition basics and using them in a way that works for you.

Eat with others whenever possible, as eating with other people has numerous social and emotional benefits, particularly for children, and allows you to model healthy eating habits.

Eat breakfast, and eat smaller meals throughout the day. A healthy breakfast can jumpstart your metabolism, and eating small, healthy meals throughout the day (rather than the standard three large meals) keeps your energy up and your metabolism going.

Avoid eating at night. Try to eat dinner earlier in the day and then fast for 14-16 hours until breakfast the next morning.

Early studies suggest that this simple dietary adjustment, eating only when you’re most active and giving your digestive system a long break each day, may help to regulate weight.
