Good one, right? But, it's SO true. Good eating habits go hand in hand with consistent physical activity for optimal health. By making small changes to your diet and workout routine, you're making a HUGE impact on your overall health and wellness. You're preventing illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, cancers, and obesity.

You see, good eating habits go hand in hand with consistent physical activity for optimal health. You can't just kick ass at the gym and expect to eat everything you want. You grueling sweat sesh needs proper nutrients. By making small changes to your diet and workout routine, you're making a HUGE impact on your overall health and wellness. You're preventing risks for certain illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, cancers, and obesity.

To eat healthier food, you'll need to change some of your daily habits. You also may need to change some things in your environment. Your environment includes everything around you, like your home or the place you work. (Say bye to those potato chips in your desk drawer.)

But you don't need to make enormous changes to eat healthier, nor do it all at once. It takes time and baby steps. Understanding that the principles of good eating and optimal nutrition include variety, balance, and moderation:

Variety – choose a wide variety of food sources Balance – ensure you are eating foods from each food group Moderation – ensure you are not overeating on one or more food groups

Are you looking to make a change for better health? Just remember this.... [columns_row width="half"] [column]Eat Less CRAP! C - Carbonated drinks R - Refined sugar A - Artificial Sweetness and colors P - Processed foods[/column] [column]Eat More FOOD! F - Fruits and veggies O - Organic, antiobiotic-free lean proteins O - Omega 3 fatty acids D - Drink more water![/column] [/columns_row]

By changing each of these things that are CRAP one at a time, you'll create life changing healthy habits. Habit puts willpower on autopilot. Changes in lifestyle and behavior can be tough in the beginning, but become effortless when you turn them into a habit.

Just think... you are what you eat. Eat like shit and you'll feel like shit. Feed yourself amazing things and you'll feel amazing.
