These are the 3 of most important habits to keep your diet healthy.
1. Eat less: the 80% rule
According to the Okinawans, you should eat until you’re 80% full. Okinawans call this rule “Hara Hachi Bu”. Here’s a simple fact: it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to inform your brain that you’re full. So when you start to feel like you’re kinda full, you probably are hitting the limit of your appetite.
2. Eat slowly & chew more
Digesting your food actually starts in your mouth. So the more you chew, the better you can digest the food when it reaches your stomach. Tip: Don’t hold anything in your hands while you’re chewing. So tonight, I challenge you to put down your cutlery and just focus on chewing while you’re eating.
3. Create a consistent eating routine
When your body doesn’t know when it’s getting food again, your body will go full “survival mode”. Your body will start storing every meal as fat in fear of running out of energy reserve. None of us want that. But how frequent should you eat? Some people say eating every 2 to 3 hours is the way to go. Others say intermittent fasting works for them. Others eat like the kids – consistent eating routine. Whatever works for your body.
It is not enough to be thin. The operative word is healthy.
The healthiest people (who also tend to be thin) follow a vegan diet- which means they eat plants (including rice, beans, nuts, fruit, vegetables). Most of the chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, atherosclerosis, gout, can be attenuated and even reversed by following a plant-based diet and supplementing it with Vitamin B 12 and Omega -3.
