Fueling the body for optimal health can be as simple as changing a few habits at a time. Perhaps replacing soda with lemon water, processed bread with high fiber whole grain, fried chicken with a crispy oven baked recipe. The idea is to put the most energy efficient foods into the system to avoid unnecessary weight gain and maximize energy output.

Try food journaling for a few weeks to identify existing eating patterns. (Read Please dont make me food journal.pdf for more information.)

If dining out regularly is a challenge, create a plan for making healthy choices. A wellness coach can guide you through the process. With a little assistance, it really can be that simple.
