According to the nutritionist Deimantė Rapalytė, enjoying food is mandatory. It will be difficult to change your eating habits if you put yourself in a frame, start restraining yourself, calculating each bite, and then overeat. The most important thing is to listen to your body, give it high-quality and nutritious food.
A balanced diet makes it easier to achieve physical and emotional changes, and usually it’s impossible to achieve the desired effect without it. Food is essential for your well-being and mood.
The nutritionist shares the tips on how to take the first steps towards a healthier diet.
1. Breakfast + Sleep + Rule 80/20
First, if you are not used to have breakfast, start doing it today! A nutritious and rich breakfast will prevent you from late overeating and will also give you more energy.
Second, be sure to take time to quality sleep, as research has shown that people who sleep less than 7-8 hours eat more unhealthy foods.
Third, adhere to Rule 80/20. Eighty percent of food shall be nutritious and healthy, and the rest can be your favourite food or dessert. Psychologists say that when you push yourself into a very rigid frame, a natural resistance instinct arises, so the diet does not work.
