When it comes to our daily habits, not all of them are going to be great for us, but the bad ones we engage in fairly often have to do with our diet.
When it comes down to it, not only does time weigh down hard on us, making it often feel like preparing a nutritional meal is an elusive thing, not to mention the fact that advertisers have fast-food ads on billboards, on TV, and on the internet tempting you with the next greasy thing.
Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center goes over a few common poor nutrition habits to break and/or avoid.
1.) Eating Late at Night
Having that late night snack might be tempting, but it’s a bad idea to eat right before you go to sleep, which will affect your quality of sleep, since your body is tasked with digesting the food you eat while it is trying to rest. Instead, have your last meal no later than 2 hours before you go to sleep to ensure a better night of rest.
2.) Eating Fast-Food
If the choice is either eat junk food or eat nothing, honestly, it’s probably a better idea to skip that meal and wait for a healthier option. Fast food has little or no nutritional value and is loaded with processed carbohydrates, sugars, and probably some things you don’t even want to know about. The sooner you can break-up with that fast-food place that is right on the way home, the better.
3.) Eating Large Portions
Many of us condense our meals into 2 or 3 per day, so a lot of us are eating larger portions, which can often bog down the body, which will bring on fatigue and lower our energy levels. Instead, try to eat 4-5 healthy smaller meals throughout the day, which will ensure your body spends its energy on your daily duties instead of digesting large meals all at once.
