Keeping a healthy diet is one of the foundational practices of living a healthy life. If you combine a healthy diet with chiropractic treatments, you’ll unlock untold health benefits, including drug-free pain relief, improved cognitive function, increased flexibility and range of motion, not to mention improved immune system.
Below are a few ways to quickly improve your diet.
1.) Eat Good Food or Don’t Eat
If it comes down to either eating fast food or not at all, choose the not at all. There is not a whole lot of nutritional value. It’s best to hold off until you can eat clean, whole foods.
2.) Eat Smaller Portions
Eat smaller portions for easier digestion. Eating 5 smaller meals is preferable to 2-3 throughout the day.
3.) Eat for Fuel
Think about what you eat and what it does for your nutritionally. Try to only eat things that are good for you.
4.) Eat the Color Wheel
Try to eat all of the colors of the color spectrum, green, purple, blue, red, orange, etc. You’ll find yourself eating innovative salads, healthy vegetables, and clean whole foods as a result.
5.) Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Staying hydrated is of paramount importance in maintaining a healthy balance. Drink half your body weight in ounces of water.
