Habit #3 : Eating

Aug 2nd, 2008 | By Fitness | Category: Tips And Techniques

As an youngster I used to anything and everything I see without adding and weight to my body as I was very active. But nowadays it is totally different. I watch whatever I eat. Although I never count my calories very much as preparing such foods will be a big headache for anyone and hence I don’t do maths on my food that I eat. But I prefer to eat all natural foods like fruits, vegetables, eggs, fish, bread, etc. Most of the meals I eat will have one of these food for sure.

Although I feel myself as lucky as I don’t look for variety on what I eat for my satisfaction. As I eat only the necessary food to provide the much needed fuel to function properly and muscle building. This has fitted my regime very well as I don’t like planning in any way. But if you are such a person who likes variety in what you eat, then it is better to plan on your eating on a weekly basis. Although it is really tough to plan on the food that you eat by this method but you will get significant benefit from it long term.

One thing which I know and must know for me when I eat something is the total protein intake. I always try to have at least 30 plus grams on each meal per day. It is the only nutrient I really admire on when the food was being prepared and it would rather be difficult for those prepare it though. As a thumb rule you should at least have 1 gram protein per pound of the body weight. Hence if you weight 150 pounds then you must at least have 1.5 grams of protein daily.

But I always consume most of the natural foods which has high protein in it like chicken, eggs, beef and tuna. As I don’t believe in consuming protein rich powers which actually costs you a huge deal. Hence it is beneficial both financially as well as health wise.
