What You Should Be Eating
Changing your diet can be difficult, at first, but with the tips and support of the Dr. Life Club, you will be on the right track in no time. Below, you will find an overview of some of the beneficial foods you should be eating instead.
1. High Quality Protein
Protein is essential for many functions that keep our bodies healthy. Importantly, it acts as a metabolism booster, which will lead to a decrease in that constant hunger you may be feeling now. Naturally, this also aids in increasing your energy levels, so you can feel great all day long.
Protein also helps our bodies build and repair muscle, so you can look your best after hitting the gym. To get the protein you need, eat lean meat like chicken, or fish, such as salmon. These foods are also high in Omega-3 and other essential minerals. Note: while red meat is also high in protein, it should be eaten in moderation.
Vegetables are a key source of nutrition for almost every necessary vitamin and mineral. Not only are they loaded with things like Vitamin A, E, and C, potassium, and folate, they are also a good source of fiber.
Eating enough vegetables can help with everything from regulating blood pressure to preventing chronic diseases. To get the most health benefit out of the least amount of vegetables, choose dark, leafy greens and cruciferous veggies, such as spinach, kale, and broccoli.
Fruit is another great source of essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs to look and feel great. Eating some fruits can even lower your risk of chronic diseases, heart attack, and stroke. Dark fruit, such as red grapes, pomegranates, cranberries, and blueberries contain high amounts of antioxidants, which are necessary to fight the damage caused by free radicals.
