Nutrition 7 Nutrition Busy People Tips


Visitors: 239

Today's society is more on the go than ever before. There is rarely a moment for family, friends, or even recreation. So where can we fit good nutrition in on all this? Well, most people sacrifice and say “you can't"! They suffer for it, and frankly, it's a lie. . .

The following tips are just that: they are tips. I do want to place a disclaimer on all this and tell you that you have to do some sort of work at this in order for it to be helpful. I can't write an article for you to be motivated. I can tell you that it's not always going to be fun; however, you can expect rewards if you're really willing to just bite the bullet. Your life may depend on it one day - this IS nutrition we're talking about. Let's get started.

1. Tell your friends.

Tell your colleagues, buddies, and friends that you're trying to eat healthy for your life's sake. This should bring you a good support group in which they won't be so quick to offer fast food. Also, if you tell them and they DO decide to go to a fast food place, or an unhealthy eatery, you'll have much more understanding when you refuse certain things.

2. Stay away from bad habits.

We, as humans, are habitual creatures. We form life-patterns that are hard to break. If you're a habitual eater, try and stay away from that tendency. Log exactly what time of day that you usually snack, and then schedule something for that time of day so that you can effectively get rid of that unhealthy habit.

3. Drink water.

Drinking water is a hard habit to form for many people because they don't want to go to the bathroom all day. Who cares! You might enjoy the breaks every-once-in-a-while.

4. Pack a lunch.

This is going to be the hard one: packing a lunch. Many working people take lunch off and run to the nearest cafe or burger-joint. Stay away from these! Pack your lunch either in the morning, or the previous night.

5. Pre-Made Breakfasts

Getting out of the house early? Too early for breakfast? Try pre-making your breakfast by placing oats, water, raisins, and peanut butter in small plastic containers. These are great little tasty treats to have in the morning so that you don't starve your body all day.

6. The miracle of salads.

If you desperately HAVE to go out to eat with your co-workers. Get a salad.

7. De-Stress.

If you're a busy person, you're probably a stressed person. Don't sweat it! Find activities in order to unwind. This will allow your body to slow its self down and you won't stress-snack.

Nutrition : the very mention of it makes some people's minds reel with the thought of diets, low carbs, and what-not. This is not true!


Nutrition is something that we all face on a day to day basis. It is the food that we eat. One can have bad nutrition, and others can have good nutrition. It doesn't matter what you eat - you are getting some sort of nutrition.
