Did you know that November is Good Nutrition Month? Take advantage of this opportunity and start eating healthier and continue it through the holiday season! Here are some tips to help you celebrate Good Nutrition Month.
Enjoy Seasonal Foods
Fall gets a lot of attention for its bountiful harvest (sweet potatoes, pumpkin, parsnips, winter squash, pears, Brussels sprouts, grapes, and pomegranates). These fruits and veggies are packed with antioxidants and are a nutritious way to celebrate Good Nutrition Month.
Choose Healthy Snacks
Protein shakes, meals, and snacks are an easy way to eat better and stay fuller longer. Medi-Weightloss® offers a variety of high-quality, protein-laden foods that can help you avoid the fast food drive-thru lane. Visit Shop.MediWeightloss.com. They’re even some healthy chocolates.
Be Prepared for Temptations
Most store displays during this time of year are loaded with candies, cakes and other goodies that can sabotage your weight loss efforts. Thus, it's important to have a plan for fighting cravings and avoiding holiday weight gain. Fill your kitchen and fridge with healthy snacks, buy fresh fruits to satisfy your sweet tooth, and eat mindfully.
Don’t forget to drink plenty of water (64-128 oz daily). Water helps satisfy hunger and helps your body function at its peak. Fruit infused water, unsweetened herbal tea, and fresh fruit juices are good choices, too.
