What First Motivated Me To Eat Healthier
I am a diabetic. I find if I eat right, I feel good. I know I am getting the right nutrients. The blood glucose stays low. I feel in control and that really helps me stay eating well. Sweets taste good but I get the "sugar blues" afterward.
What Motivates Me To Eat Healthier Now
I just feel better when I eat right. I have a list of proteins that I like: chicken, turkey, beef, pork. Carbohydrates that don't raise my blood sugar to much and olive oil and canola oil are my main fats.
I stay away from concentrated sweets because if I don't, I get high blood sugar and feel bad.
When I eat well, I feel satisfied that I have fed my body right.
- Plan ahead. Have foods on hand to eat "right now" Have menus that take a minimum of time to prepare.
- I find that foods that have High Fructose make me want to eat more of that food. So I read labels.
