Sometimes our nutrition can take a backseat to the demands of daily life but it’s important to treat proper nutrition as a priority to feel your best each day. SlimFast Plan Consultant and Registered Dietitian, Maryann Walsh outlines five ways proper nutrition can improve your life!
1. Disease Prevention
Many health concerns are associated with improper nutrition including heart disease, obesity, and osteoporosis. As we get older, the chance of having health issues related to nutrition increases, so it’s important to take care of ourselves so we can feel great year after year.
2. Sustained Weight Maintenance
When you stay within healthy calorie limits and eat moderately sized meals and snacks, you are more likely to maintain a healthy weight. This can help prevent disease (as discussed above), and also help you feel better physically by not burdening your body and joints with excess weight.
3. Increased Energy Levels
Our body needs nourishment as the foods we eat are broken down and used for energy output. It is also important to drink enough water each day to maintain hydration status. Even mild dehydration can wreak havoc on your energy levels, so drink up! How much water should you be taking in each day? Check out this blog to learn how much water you may need per day!
4. Mood Booster
Maintaining balanced blood sugar levels throughout the day can help with concentration and prevent you from feeling overly hungry and moody (or as some like to call it “hangry”).
5. Improved Memory
Lastly, proper nutrition supports cognition and brain health. Among the many nutrients to support brain health, Omega-3 is consistently at the top of the list! Check out this article to learn more about how Omega-3’s can give your brain a nutritious boost!
