How to Start Eating Healthy: 7 helpful tips you need to know

How to Start Eating Healthy: 7 helpful tips you need to know 
            
        A lot of people ask me regularly, how do I start eating healthy? I really want to change my eating habits, but I get so busy at work and don’t have time to cook,” or whatever your excuse may be. Hopefully, this will sum it up.
          Start with the eat this not that method.
             Okay, so let’s use some common sense. If it’s sugary and greasy then 9 times out of 10, it’s bad for you! If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, then it’s more than likely what…? Lol So let’s start with eating more green food. Choose veggies as your side at a restaurant instead of the French fries! Eat Chipotle over Burger King. Little things like that will make a huge difference.
      Keep yourself away from processed foods.
             If it’s in a freezer with a lot of ingredients listed , more than likely it’s bad for you. These foods are high in sodium so cut it out! I like my food to stay in the refrigerator if possible! (Other than meat of course) So TV dinners, hot pockets, pizza rolls…it’s a nope for me. That crap is so cheap because it’s made of plastic 🙂
                                                                                       
           Keep meals with you.
            So many people work long hours and don’t have time to prepare a full meal, so they grab whatever is near. Or maybe there’s an office potluck and you find yourself going crazy. I know how that goes but you have to remind yourself you have goals. It’s just food! Bring your own food from home. You’ll be happy you made a healthy choice. Remember you have the power so think thoughts like “I’m not going to go to that food truck across the street. have my meal with me.” If you have to prepare meals the day before or wake up earlier to make yourself a lunch, so be it! No one said it would be easy!
         Portion control 
           Have you heard that saying “too much of anything is bad for you”? Well it’s true! When you eat, try to take in half of the food you usually consume per meal. You’ll start feeling full sooner and it leads you to not want to take on so much fatty foods because you’ll start to hate the feeling of being overly full.
              Workout 
            Even though you may not be at the point of working out very hard or heavy, if you work out a couple time a week or even go on walks this can help with your eating habits. I know I hate working out and putting bad foods back into my body. It makes it feel like a waste of time. Some people feel because they worked out for the day they can eat whatever they want. (Don’t be that guy)
                 Make it a habit! 
  Now that you started eating better, make it a habit! Don’t over think it. Don’t wake up saying, “Okay, I’m going to try and eat healthy today.” Instead say, “I’m hungry so I’m going to grab a salad because that sounds good.”  It’s not a chore. Just Make it normal and be persistent. With the same practices, you will see results!
        Hold yourself accountable 
                I know for me, I started posting what I eat on social media everyday to prove to myself that I’m eating healthy everyday. The crazy part people started snapping me what they are eating for breakfast, lunch, and so on. By that point, people wanted my recipes and wanted to join me on my fitness journey. I then started a 10 day challenge that allows everyone to be in a group chat where we post pictures of what we are eating at the moment as well as sweaty workout pictures etc.  Let me help you if you’re serious about eating right and getting in shape. Contact me if you’d like to join my 10 day health and fitness challenge. It really makes a difference!
                                                
There you go guys. Try these steps, stop the excuses, and just do it! That’s it!
Xoxo,
Trishonna

    I personally hate eating healthy I have always done sports which made it a lot easier for me to eat whatever I wanted and it really didn’t matter because I burned off 2-3x the amount of calories off. After I stopped played 4 sports year round I could see myself slowly starting to slip away. That made me very uncomfortable in my own skin and when I got invited to this I saw it as a jumpstart to my new lifestyle opportunity. The 10 day Challenge was easy to do and the support in the group made it easy to stick to the new food that I was eating. Ian usually very busy which is the excuse I used to not workout but I told myself that I had goals and excuses weren’t going to help me reach them. Thank you to Trishonna, the 10 Day Challenge, and the other individuals who helped me start to feel like myself again!

    Hello I’m DeLon and I have been following this girl plan for almost a week now, and let me just say BEST DECISION I HAVE MADE SO FAR ! The workouts , the meals and everything has been successful for me and just relieving. And it truly does start with the eating she’s right. It’s been a struggle at first because I didn’t know what to eat but since the challenge I joined Trishonna in I have meals that I actually enjoy eating. She’s the truth! Thanks so much for a healthier life style 💪🏾

    I’ve been doing this challenge for about a week now and I honestly feel so amazing! I’ve always been the type of person who did not have a problem with working out but I would not eat as clean as I should. By doing the 10 day challenge I am able to see a huge difference in myself. This challenge has allowed me to interact with other people who have the same fitness goals as me. I know this is only the beginning of my fitness journey.
