Top 10 Habits – #4

Todayโ€™s Habit is #4 – Eat 5 Servings of Veggies & Fruits. ๐Ÿ…๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅ’๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ†

Taste the rainbow!

Veggies and fruits come in all colors of the rainbow. Your best bet is to eat a wide variety of colors to ensure you cover all of the vitamins and minerals our bodies need.

Not a huge fanโ€ฆstart by adding one more serving a day. Build from there. It takes time to develop a taste for new foods. Give it time.

If you already knock this habit out of the park, find new ways to enjoy your fruits and veggies. Or experiment by adding new ones to the mix.

Servings for veggies:

Women start with one fist-sized portion and men with two fist-sized portions.

Servings for fruits:

Women start with one cupped handful and men with two cupped handfuls.

On Friday for 10 weeks, I will be introducing one of our top 10 habits. We work with clients to develop these habits slowly so that they work into their lifestyle. We all have different occupations, family situations, stressors, obligations, etc.

These habits are GUIDELINES that you adapt to fit your needs as you begin to develop them and incorporate them into your daily life.

I decided to go from #10 and count down to #1. Fitness and nutrition changes are tough enough, and then throw on all of the conflicting information and it’s even worse.

We try to cut through the noise and simplify the changes that can have the most impact.

I didn’t say it was easy to implement, but they are simple concepts to understand. We can help apply them to YOUR situation.
