Its Not Just What You Eat Its How You Eat

Here’s the thing, having a green juice from Whole Foods is great, but it doesn’t mean that you still won’t struggle with how your body reacts to it.

What you put in your body is only half of the battle.

Obviously eating whole, unprocessed foods is the way to go but it’s not enough to see immediate improvements or results you may be seeking.

Have you ever noticed that even when you eat REALLY healthy, especially at the beginning of a cleanse or diet, you’re still extremely bloated and not digesting your food properly?

There are reasons for this - and it is why “how you eat” has becoming equally as important in the health community.

Eat When You’re Actually Hungry!

Let’s face it, there are definitely times we eat when we’re just bored and not actually hungry.

Aside from potential weight gain, eating when you’re not hungry is the most obvious cause of serious bloating.

Studies have shown that until your stomach is completely empty, your digestive enzymes can’t thoroughly break down your food.

It’s important to figure out if you’re eating out of need, or just habit.

Eating when you’re not hungry will not only initiate unwanted weight gain, but can also make you sluggish and uncomfortable.

Sit and Enjoy Your Food!

Have you ever noticed that you’re eating entirely too fast?

When you eat too fast, your stomach can’t catch up to your brain and tell you that you’re full. This leads to overeating which can cause fast weight gain, and digestive issues.

Taking it slow ultimately provides our digestive system with HUGE benefits because it gives your body time to properly break down food and absorb the nutrients.

Be sure to pace yourself - maybe even eat with friends and chat while you eat!

It’s also very important to SIT DOWN while eating.

When we eat on the go, chances are we aren’t fully chewing our food.

When we take a few minutes to sit and eat, we can focus more on the amount of food we are putting into our bodies, and fully chew which will in return allow our bellies to fully digest the food.

Make Lunch Your Biggest Meal

It’s pretty simple. If your biggest meal is lunch, then your body has more time to digest it.

A common mistake most people make is eating a big meal for dinner but what does that give us? A full belly right before bed and no activity to burn it off.

Lunch - Full Meal

Eating your largest meal at lunch not only allows an ample amount of time to burn it off but it’s also more likely that your body will fully digest it before your evening slumber!

Take in the smells, tastes, and textures of your meal.

Believe it or not, paying attention to the smells, tastes and textures of your food is important!

Think about it; when you’re cooking, are you typically hungry afterward? Most of us would say no.

The reason for this is because we are taking in all of those glorious smells while preparing our delicious meal.

When you take in all of those amazing smells, it triggers your brain to think that you are full.

Making this a habit will ensure that your stomach feels full after a meal, and you’ll be more comfortable and satisfied for the day.

Sip warm water throughout the day.

Staying hydrated is the number one rule for any healthy lifestyle.We all know how important it is to drink a lot of water throughout the day- it’s the best thing for you!

It’s also much easier to pass food through your digestive system when you’re hydrated.

Drinking warm water actually digests quicker than cold water.

Studies show that it takes only 30 minutes for warm water to fully digest in your system vs 1 hour for cold water.

Quick Tip: drink water prior to eating any meal.

You will find yourself much fuller, faster!

Again, eating healthy is super important, and you don’t want to throw just anything into your body but don’t only focus on the ingredients.

There is a lot of power in the time of day, and speed at which you eat.

If you have Organic Supplement such as Glucosa Factor then it makes it easy for you to get the best ingredients and herbs in a small bottle.
