PROTEIN: KEEP IT SIMPLE AND MAKE IT HAPPEN
IT’S YOUR CHOICE
You have the freedom of choosing what food you eat in this country. That is an amazing gift and blessing that many are not afforded in other places around the world. But since we are bombarded with ultra-processed food that is quick and easy, we have to make a more conscious effort to choose protein over other foods because protein provides a higher level of nutrient satiety. This, in turn, helps us to eat fewer carbs and processed fats overall. So, ultimately the goal is to make small, sustainable, substitutions in a gradual fashion. Slowly, but surely, this will improve diet quality and lead to naturally eating fewer unwanted calories.
ENJOY YOUR FOOD
The key to change is that it is SUSTAINABLE. You want eating habits that you enjoy and that you can stick with for the rest of your life. So, maybe this means you eat another egg in place of the extra toast, or trade in pork sausage for turkey bacon. Any of these small swaps would be easy to implement and make a big difference over time in getting you to your goals. Every food you eat is either getting you closer to your goals or farther away. But YOU and only you have the power to make these choices every day!
