Eat Healthy Be Healthy – Live Forever Eating This

Everyone wants to live a long life. By making “eat healthy be healthy” your new motto in life, you can help make that happen (and there is no trip to the fountain of youth). All you have to do is eat different foods in a common sense way and then look forward to seeing all your grandkids graduate college.

“Eat healthy be healthy” – does that mean you have to eat salads everyday and never have another slice of Boston cream pie again? Absolutely not. There is no use in living forever if you can’t enjoy it too, right? Right. That’s why the first rule is to never go hungry again. This means you should eat smaller meals more often. 5 meals a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner and three snacks), each running about 300 to 400 calories will keep you full and keeps your metabolism on a constant level (no sugar spikes or crashes). If you workout at night, you can add another small snack after your workout to maximize your muscle recovery. This still equates to about 1500 to 2000 calories per day, which is normal for a female (1500) and male (2000).

Your next question should be “What should I eat for all those mini-meals to eat healthy and be healthy?” Each mean should consist of one serving of protein (about the size of your fist), one serving of carbohydrates (about the size of your open hand), all the veggies you can eat, moderate amount of fruit and a small amount of good fat. A good example of this is a chicken Waldorf salad. It has chicken (protein), whole wheat crackers (carb), lettuce and celery (veggies), apples and grapes (fruits), and a little mayo and nuts (good fats).

It does sound great to finally get to eat enough food to never be hungry at the same time giving your body everything it needs to live a long time, but that sounds like a lot of work. This is probably even more difficult sounding to those of you who eat a lot of convenience food (fast food, chips, etc.). Well don’t fret. There are alternatives. You can try meal replacement bars. These bars have the right amount of protein, carbs and vitamins to cover all the aspects of a full meal. Make sure you keep the sugar under 10 grams to stick to the “eat healthy be healthy” model.

With just a little though behind each meal and remembering to eat 5-6 times per day (about every 3 hours), you can be well on your way to leading a “eat healthy be healthy” lifestyle. Start checking out cookbooks, looking for recipes that follow these guidelines. Keep the portions to 300 to 400 calories and enjoys many, many years to come.
