Reality Bites: Why A Balanced Diet is Important!

A balanced diet means respecting and taking care of your body by giving it the proper nutrients, such as carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals from all food groups to make your body stronger and support more sustainable weight management plans.

Include Go, Grow, and Glow foods in your diet as they’re rich in:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Antioxidants

Go, Grow, and Glow foods as they’re rich in:

Whole Grains

Add a dash of grains high in fiber and nutrients to keep you full and satisfied–while supporting your gut health!

Choose whole grains to fuel your day like:

  • Brown rice
  • Quinoa
  • Oats
  • Whole wheat bread

Lean Proteins

Repair tissues and support muscle growth with lean proteins!

Include these in your meal preps:

Simple Tips and Tricks to Stay Consistently Healthy

Be Flexible

Incorporate flexibility in your diet and lifestyle! Give in to occasional indulgences and treat yourself once in a while to break free from your routine to help prevent feelings of deprivation or restriction.

Seek Support

Surround yourself with the support and love from friends, family, or a weight loss support group who can provide encouragement, motivation, and accountability on your weight loss journey!

Celebrate Successes

Celebrate your achievements and milestones along the way, whether it’s reaching a new fitness goal, fitting into a smaller clothing size, or simply feeling healthier and more energized!

Remember, sustainable weight loss and maintenance is not about perfection! Rather, it’s about making gradual, sustainable changes that support your overall health and well-being for years to come.
