What is the first thing many of us do when the stress starts to pile up? We pile up our plates—and we usually do it with junk. Nothing stimulates our cravings for sugar, salt and fat like a stressful event, but attempting to “eat your way out” is not the right approach. The good news is that it’s possible to get dramatically positive benefits just from making a few small changes in your diet.
- First, eat breakfast! After all, it’s the most important meal of the day (if you do it right). Breakfast, like all your meals and snacks throughout the day, should be a blend of carbohydrates and protein, with a little bit of fat thrown in.
- A good rule of thumb is to compose each meal or snack by “fists.” Here’s how it works: Each meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) is made up of one fist-sized helping of carbohydrates (pasta, bread, cereal), one fist-sized helping of protein (eggs, meat, poultry, fish, tofu), and another fist or two of fruits and vegetables (an apple, a banana, a side salad). Each snack (one each between breakfast and lunch, between lunch and dinner, and between dinner) should be built the same way, but the total size of a snack should be no larger than one fist.
- One other consideration is to complement your diet with a high-quality multivitamin/multi-mineral supplement. In particular, the supplement you choose should provide adequate amounts of the most important anti-stress nutrients that are needed at increased levels during periods of high stress. I recommend trying Amare’s VitaGBX along with the Fundamentals Pack for best results. For more info on these products, the benefits of the ingredients and more, visit my site here : www.B3forME.com
This approach to nutrition has changed many live, and I feel like it could change yours too. Willing to give it a shot?
