EAT SMARTER

 

There's no secret recipe for optimal eating, but Following a strict diet is almost never a good idea. Eat real food that doesn’t come out of a box. Eat more plants. eat food high in nutrients—not calories. add variety but don’t eat too much. and Avoid junk and processed foods.

THE SCIENCE

You don’t need to be vegan, paleo, or keto to be healthy.

Following a strict diet is never a good idea. There's no secret recipe for optimal eating. Eat what you like and what makes you happy and satisfied but stay balanced. Eat mostly vegetables (50% of your plate), lots of protein (25% of your plate) and healthy fats (25% of your plate). What about grains? Grains are good in moderation but not a requirement for health. You can get most of your carbohydrates from vegetables but if you love overnight oats for breakfast, go for it! Just avoid refined, white carbohydrates and starches.

 
 
 
 

TAKE ACTION

Food is fuel to do better.

Food helps us perform better at sports, academics, business, drama, and music. Eat too much, or eat poorly, and you underperform. Ask yourself this: “What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning and take on the world?” Answer that, then eat smarter to do that better. Link eating smarter to what you care about. That’s how you experience exponential growth in your life.
