  • 1. 7 STEPS TO A Healthier Diet
  • 2. Diets & Lifestyle Changes • Diets have developed a negative stigma • Diets tend to be temporary changes with temporary results • Making a significant change in your life can’t be done using temporary measures • Lifestyle changes are done a step at a time
  • 3. Feeling good Vs. Weight Loss • It’s okay to have a weight loss goal • Having a healthy body should be your FIRST priority • You’re more likely to make good decisions consistently when you do it to take care of your body
  • 4. Step 1: cook from scratch • Restaurant food and pre-made food is more difficult to monitor • Perception of food is different in a restaurant setting • Homemade food is less processed • You are in control
  • 5. Step 2: Use whole & Ancient grains • Whole grains have more fiber and nutrients • Wheat isn’t the only options • Buy your own milling machine • Use different ancient grains in your cooking to receive the different nutrients
  • 6. Step 3: Use Natural sugar substitutes • Sugar is awful, addictive, and damaging to health • Use one of the following in moderation: – Blackstrap molasses – Maple syrup – Honey – Agave nectar – Stevia
  • 7. Step 4: Avoid Trans fats • Trans-fat and hydrogenated oils are ridiculously bad for you • Usually found in pre-packaged food and overly processed oils • Look for organic coconut and olive oils
  • 8. Step 5: Fruits & Veggies = 50% • Each meal needs to be mostly fruits and veggies • Fruits and vegetables are more likely to satisfy your hunger • They also make a huge difference in how you feel • Don’t forget to use legumes like beans and lentils
  • 9. Step 6: don’t drink your calories • Drinking juice, alcohol, or soda can add calories fast • Try to drink water all day every day and only imbibe other beverages occasionally • Tone down the coffee and use natural sweeteners
  • 10. Step 7: don’t be a quitter • Avoid getting into yo-yo dieting • Don’t give up after a small mistake • Don’t punish yourself, but don’t slack off either
  • 11. Finding the right products helps • Use products from companies that use less processing and more organic ingredients. • BetterBody Foods is an excellent place to start when undergoing a lifestyle change • See our blogs for more information and recipes
