How to Eat More Whole Foods

“It’s easy to say, eat more whole foods, but it’s hard to do. I just don’t have enough time.”

This is what someone said to me recently at a talk I was doing.

I do understand that processed food is easier and much more convenient. That is a fact.

Eating for better health takes more time, effort, and planning than eating for convenience.

How Much Should You Eat?

Some people say, only eat when you are hungry and just eat until you are satisfied.

But if it were that simple we wouldn’t have the current epidemic of overweight and obesity in our country.

Many of my clients have goals with their weight and body composition that will come down to the nitty-gritty details. If I tell them to just eat until they are satisfied that only causes confusion and frustration.

So how do we know how much we should eat?

How To Rule Your Emotions For Better Health

Many of my clients experience that stress and negative emotions can often get in the way of eating well.

I realized that I regularly practice “ruling” my emotions and I think this practice helps me avoid stress eating or emotional eating.

I call this activity the “mental cleanse” and I’ve been doing it for years.

I wanted to share this practice with you so that perhaps it can help you get better control in those difficult moments.
