The most challenging part of your healthy lifestyle could be figuring out what to eat.
Physical and mental wellness has become a growing trend in recent years, not that anyone’s complaining. It’s amazing to see so many people take control of their health and make it a priority. Every day, someone decides to take that first step to a healthier life. It can, however, be an overwhelming one.
Figuring out what physical activity you would like to do can be as simple as choosing what you enjoy. The more challenging part of this task is your diet. After all, the key to a healthy body is 30% exercise and 70% diet. The best way to stick to any diet is to make it a lifestyle change, and do something that you can actually commit to. There are many “quick fix” options, but most people cannot prolong the diet, or they revert back to old habits because the diet was too extreme.
Meal prepping has been a major tool in helping people become cognizant of what they are eating. It allows you to plan your meals in advance and cook for a few days at a time. The benefits of meal prepping include:
- Knowing what’s in your food (because you cooked it)
- Measuring out the correct portions to fuel your body
- Resist the temptation to buy outside food ( especially fast food)
- Save money!
