Eat Your Colors Philosophy...Not A Diet.

Eat Your Colors Philosophy...Not A Diet.

The entire EAT COLORS philosophy is based on the importance of eating a variety of fresh and colorful foods instead of following misleading and restrictive fad diets. Each color represents different nutrients and health benefits that can help us achieve optimal wellness. In later posts, I will go into detail about the specific benefits surrounding the food color groups.

Before we go any further, let's have a talk. I know you know what to eat. The information is everywhere. I recognize there are barriers that make some of these recommendations easier said than done. However, even the smallest, consistent changes can make a big difference. Then there are cheat foods. Yes, we all love them because they are &$%#&! delicious. But let's be honest. They are called cheat foods for a reason. They aren't the best option for our health. Consume them rarely and in moderation. It's all about balance, my friends.

Now, let's move on to what your here for. "What can I eat?"

I believe that by consuming different colors of fresh food, we can ensure that our bodies get all the necessary nutrients to function correctly.

Here's what I recommend:

Starting off, high-quality protein should make up less than 10% of your daily calorie intake. That means cutting back on red meat and processed meats and adding more lean protein sources such as chicken, turkey, and fish.

Next, healthy fats. You know 'em, you love 'em! Avocado, seeds, nuts and the like should make up 10-40% of your daily calorie intake. These foods are rich in healthy fats and can help keep you full and satisfied throughout the day.

Fruits, beans, and legumes should make up 30-40% of your daily calorie intake. Fruits are an excellent source of vitamins and fiber, while beans and legumes are a great source of protein and fiber. Both are also low in fat and calories, making them an excellent addition to your diet.

Lastly, vegetables should make up 30-60% of your daily calorie intake. Vegetables are packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber, making them a crucial part of any healthy diet. Try to mix it up by getting more of these.

So, the key takeaway is to eat a variety of fresh, colorful, and nutrient-dense foods. No fad diets, no restrictions, just the good old-fashioned power of nature's colors. Your body will thank you for it.
