Eating right for ultimate health is a must!
By going back and reading all the nutritional literature there is out there on what diet best leads to ultimate health has shown that the more plant based diet you consume, the healthier you will be.
However, it can be difficult to start eating in a manner that is so radically different than the standard American diet of processed foods and lots of animal products.
So how do you start on the road to eating for your health so you can be most successful? Check out this video to see the step-by-step blueprint for your healthy eating success:
Determine your “why”. Why do you want to eat healthy and what do you hope to achieve out of changing your diet. This will help you stay motivated even if it gets tough.
Start out with small changes to your diet. Start with one meal or snacks and work your way up. Don’t overwhelm yourself.
Learn about your food. Research everything you can about fresh whole foods and how to buy them, store them, and prepare them.
Get a great recipe book that will help you get ideas and recipes for healthier meals.
Get the right kitchen equipment. For a video I did on some kitchen equipment you might need when you switch to a more plant-based diet, visit my Healthy Kitchen Equipment 101 video.
Stock your refrigerator and pantry with fresh whole foods and get rid of the processed foods.
Remember to eat lots of fresh foods! Just keep eating!
Eat a variety of foods! There are so many different fresh whole foods out there that boredom shouldn’t be possible!
Don’t let yourself get hungry! There is no excuse! Just keep eating all the fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and whole grains you can because they are all so low in calories for the nutrient punch you
get. With this way of eating, counting calories and deprivation are no longer in your vocabulary!
Finally, experiment with your food! Get creative and have fun trying new foods and recipes and just enjoy how this healthy way of eating makes you feel!
You can achieve great health by switching to a plant based diet! Go out there have fun and get healthy! If you need a little help getting started, check out the free gift I have for you on my blog: Get Healthy with Amber Food Guide and Shopping List.
