Make sure to use these six easy dietary habits to help you get fit the right way!
Eat your veggies
You should always include a serving or two of vegetables at every single meal. Not only will this make sure you are getting enough key nutrients in your diet, but the high fiber content of vegetables will help you to feel fuller at every meal. Choose green veggies like broccoli, asparagus, kale and Swiss chard for the most nutrient-dense, high-fiber options.
Chew your food – it’s not a race! The satiety signals in your brain don’t kick in until about 15 to 20 minutes or so after you’ve begun eating. By eating more slowly, you will give your brain a chance to tell the body that enough fuel has been consumed and will, therefore, prevent you from overeating at each meal.
Get your protein
Along with your veggies, make sure to eat an adequate source of protein with every meal. Similar to the fiber in vegetables, protein helps to increase satiety and will keep you feeling full longer. High-quality sources of protein, like eggs, cottage cheese and Greek yogurt, are great options to include. Or for vegan options, choose foods like quinoa, black beans and lentils. If you have trouble getting enough protein in your diet, be sure to add supplements like Organic Protein and/or Whey Protein & Greens for a convenient protein source you can take anywhere.
Schedule carbs around training
Do your best to eat the majority of your carbohydrates for the day before and after your training session. This will help to ensure that the carbohydrates you are eating are being used to fuel your training and then recover from it, rather than being stored as fat. On days you don’t train, aim to eat less carbs than you would normally consume on a training day.
Stop at 80%
Eating a meal doesn’t mean being completely stuffed. Save the gluttony for special occasions like Thanksgiving and other big family get-togethers. If you want to lose weight, eating to about 80% of being totally full is a great way to ensure you are not eating too many calories throughout the day without actually having to count every calorie!
Include healthy fats
Dietary fat is not the enemy! Make sure to eat plenty of healthy fats from good sources, like olive oil, avocado and coconut oil. Including healthy fats in your diet will help to increase the satiety of your meals and is crucial for many important processes in the body.
When it comes to your diet plan, there really are no shortcuts. You’ll have to watch your calorie intake and have disciplined eating habits combined with a steady workout program. The following are some excellent choices that can help you on your journey!
Kale is the nutrient-packed juggernaut of all vegetables. It’s a powerful superfood that contains a load of vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients and fiber that give your body the nutrients to continue feeling good while cutting calories.
Cabbage is a great food in assisting your diet plan due to its high fiber content. Try this vegetable in its fermented form as sauerkraut as well for some healthy probiotics!
3. Sweet Potato:
Sweet potatoes are a great source of starchy carbohydrate that is low glycemic. This means it breaks down slowly in the body giving you steady energy for hours. It also contains high amounts of dietary fiber, which helps you feel full throughout the day.
Quinoa is a great part of a diet for similar reasons to the other foods on this list. It’s one of the highest protein-containing grains you can find and also has lots of dietary fiber. It’s also low on the glycemic index, so it digests slower, giving you a steady release of energy.
5. Coconut Oil:
Coconut oil is a healthy fat source that contains a type of fat called medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). This type of fat digests very quickly in the body, so it can easily be used for fuel, this can be especially beneficial when lowering carbohydrates and calories to keep energy levels up. Try Purely Inspired® 100% Pure Extra Virgin Coconut Oil+ for this healthy fat in a convenient pill.
6. Greek Yogurt:
Greek yogurt is a great addition to your program because it is very high in protein. It is important to keep your protein intake high in order to build and maintain lean muscle mass, which will in turn increase your resting metabolic rate, helping you burn more calories throughout the day. Try adding a few spoonfuls of Greek yogurt to your Organic Protein smoothies to help make them creamier and even higher in protein!
Try adding these foods into your diet plan along with a good exercise program aimed at helping you burn calories. You can also supplement with a product like Purely Inspired® 100% Pure Garcinia Cambogia+ to help you along the way!

Your digestive system is a highly diverse ecosystem that, if functioning properly, helps to keep your whole body healthy. The problem is that there are many things in the modern diet and medicine, like antibiotics, that can have a negative impact on the biodiversity of your gut! It’s important to bring a balance to your digestive tract for optimal health. You should make sure you are eating the right foods. Try these five probiotic-rich foods to give your system some of those beneficial bacteria!
Kind of like a drinkable yogurt, kefir is a fermented dairy product that contains oligosaccharides, which are complex carbs that feed the beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract.
