10 Easy Tips to Eating Healthy

Simple ways to improve your nutrition and eat better.

I always get asked for helpful tips on eating healthier from my friends and family.

Good nutrition is the cornerstone of a healthier life. You’ll have more energy, feel younger, and look better than you’ve ever before.

Here’s a compilation of my best tips for improving your eating habits.

1. For beginners, start with easy recipes

Most people make the mistake of trying to cook master-level recipes of people like chef Gordon Ramsay. Instead, follow the recipes of Chef Boyardee, and work your way up.

2. Don’t eat packaged food (chips, boxed snacks)

Remember to eat whole foods for better nutrition. Instead of a chicken breast, eat a whole chicken. Instead of a slice of watermelon, eat a whole watermelon. It’s both unhealthy and wasteful to eat a slice of cake. Have the whole cake and eat it too.

3. Stay away from microwaveable, frozen foods

If you want to eat healthier, don’t eat microwaved lean cuisines. Eating like a caveman is more natural and healthier for your body. Since microwaves didn’t exist back then, cook your lean cuisines over an open fire outside.

4. Avoid artificial ingredients

They say you are what you eat. If you eat fake foods, you’ll be fake. Nobody likes fake people. Don’t eat fake foods.

5. Eat healthy oils and fats to feel full for longer

If you’re constantly feeling hungry throughout the day, you’re probably not eating enough fats. During big meals, bodybuilders will sip on a tall glass of olive oil to stay full for 7-8 hours. For a dessert-type option, add a scoop of chocolate whey protein to make the drink taste like a chocolate covered olive.

6. Have a healthy snack ready (almonds, carrots)

Be sure to have healthy snacks ready when you feel hungry in between meals. Go to your favorite fast food place and sit down next to someone who just got his food. Guilt trip him into not taking his health seriously, and persuade him into trading his meal for your healthy snacks. This will not only improve your sales skills, but you will have done a good deed helping someone else make a smart decision.

7. Meal prep to control what you eat 

Preparing your meals in advance is one of the best pro-tips. A standard large, 2-topping pizza will come with 8 slices. Buy 2 pizzas to get 16 slices, which is enough for 3 meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) for 5 workdays. You’ll have 1 slice leftover for Friday night dessert. Treat yourself. You deserve it for sticking to your meal prep.

8. Use portion control

 When you sit down to eat your food, divide the food on your plate in half. Divide those halves into halves. You should have 4 equal portions of your food. Eat each portion one at a time. Instead of eating a whole plate of food, you’ve only eaten 4 – 1/4ths of a meal, which sounds like way less.

 9. Try intermittent fasting

It’s easier to not eat 500 calories than to work off 500 calories. Instead of heading to the gym, it’s more efficient to just not eat. Start small by skipping a meal or two a week. Slowly progress to missing a meal a day, then a couple a day. Sooner or later, you’ll not have to eat at all and can survive on air and willpower. This will also save you a ton of money on gym memberships.

 10. Have an accountability partner for healthy eating

Illicit a friend to join you on your healthy eating journey. Keep each other accountable by sending photos of your meals. When the other person eats something they’re not supposed to, shame them on social media by posting their food photos on their wall and calling them a fatty. It might strain your relationship, but they’ll thank you for the tough love.

12 Tips to Prevent Weight Gain at Work

Tips to prevent weight gain when working in an office environment.

For those of us who work in a sedentary office environment, it can be difficult to prevent yourself from gaining weight.

For people trying to lose weight, it can be an uphill battle when you’re sitting for eight hours a day, constantly snacking on unhealthy foods, and going out to eat all the time with coworkers.

Here are 12 easy tips to prevent yourself from getting flabby when you work in an office:

1. Park farther away to force yourself to walk more.

For better results, park in another parking lot a couple blocks down. For best results, park at home.

2. Don’t eat the free snacks at work.

Encourage your coworkers to eat them instead. If they’re on a diet, convince them to just start it tomorrow.

3. Bring healthy snacks to eat.

Buy a 3lb bag of almonds from Costco to eat. Force yourself to eat an entire bag every day. Almonds are high in protein and healthy fats. By day 3, you’ll puke whenever you see almonds, which will speed up your results.

4. Buy a standing desk.

Better yet, buy a moving desk that’ll move around on its own at a moments notice to keep you on your toes.

5. Take a break every hour to get up and walk.

Work for 5 minutes and spend the rest of the hour walking around.

6. Take a walk around your office building during lunch.

Optional: Bring a clipboard and make occasional stops to observe the building. It’ll freak out building management.

7. Go to the gym during your lunch break.

If the gym is too far, bring the gym to your office. Treadmills and elliptical machines are functional replacements for furniture in client waiting rooms. 

8. Work out before going to work to jumpstart your body’s fat burners.

For best results, work out until you’re completely exhausted and cannot physically make it in to work. Starting your day right is very important.

9. Drink lots of water.

The recommended amount for an average office worker is about 1 gallon per hour. This will also help with #5 when taking bathroom breaks.

10. Stop eating out with coworkers.

In fact, stop talking to or being friends with your coworkers at all. Having friends can be expensive and not worth consuming the extra calories when they want to go out to eat.

11. Meal prep your lunches.

Do this a month prior with leftovers. Your lunch will be so rancid you won’t want to eat it, thus saving you the extra calories.

12. Be happy and stop worrying about your weight.

Your boss is paying you to do your job, not to be fit.
