Quick Tip

You Are What You Eat

heart of food

Some days, I am a mocha latte with an extra shot of espresso! Have you noticed that some foods make you feel refreshed and energized, while others drain your reserves? How does food make you feel? You can find the answer by keeping a food journal to get a general sense of what you're eating and how you feel afterwards. Once you begin to notice how different foods affect you, adopt the 70-30 rule (ok, the 60-40 rule, if you're just starting out!). Try to eat foods that make you feel good at least 70 (60) percent of the time. No surprise; the foods that make us feel good are good for us. You'll notice that you start to choose healthier foods more frequently. The beauty of this is that you'll eat well by choice, not because you feel you should!
