Eating healthy is a priority for most people, but it can be hard to know what to eat and how much. That’s why I’ve created my 10 easy steps for eating healthy: A Guide for Busy People. This book contains tips and tricks on how to eat healthier so you can live longer, healthier lives!
Eat breakfast every morning
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s when you start your day with energy and end it with nutrients. If you want to be healthy, make sure that breakfast is a priority in your life!
When eating breakfast every morning, try some of these ideas:
- A piece of fruit (apple or banana)
- Some cereal with milk or soy milk (soy milk contains fewer calories than cow’s milk)
Drink eight glasses of water a day
Drink eight glasses of water a day.
Water is essential to your health, and it can help you lose weight while feeling full and satisfied. In fact, drinking water helps you lose up to 8 pounds in 1 month!
- Drink with meals: Drinking water with your meal will keep you fuller longer so that you don’t overeat later on.
- Drink when thirsty: If you are thirsty and need some hydration right away, drink some H2O immediately! You’ll know if it’s time for another glass when there’s no room left in your stomach or throat anymore—then it’s time for an extra sip or two! * Remember: Don’t wait until after lunch or dinner; this will lead into overeating later on because now there won’t be enough room left over from eating all those healthy foods earlier today…so make sure not only do I eat my veggies but also drink enough H2O (or whatever else) too so I don’t get hungry again soon after eating those delicious treats earlier today.”
If you want to live a healthy life, exercise is essential. It’s not just about losing weight and looking good in a bathing suit—exercise can also help with many other problems like high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
It’s true that some people have an easier time sticking to their regular workout routine than others do; however, even if you find yourself falling behind on the elliptical machine or unable to get out of bed in time for the gym (which happens), don’t worry! There are still plenty of ways that working out can improve your overall health:
- Exercise helps keep your weight under control
- Regular exercise helps lower blood pressure levels by as much as 20% after just 3 months of regular aerobic workouts (1)
- A study published this month found that people who exercised regularly were less likely than those who were inactive at all ages (2) to develop dementia later in life than those who didn’t exercise at all.*
Limit your intake of processed foods
One of the easiest ways to improve your health is by limiting your intake of processed foods. Processed foods are high in sugar and fat, often made with artificial ingredients, and often contain unhealthy fats.
Processed food has gained a bad reputation over the years for being unhealthy. However, it’s important that you keep this in perspective when making decisions about what you eat or drink. Some processed foods are still better than others—and if you look at them from an individualized level rather than just as one big category (e.g., “all cakes”), then there will be some exceptions where they’re okay!
Eat more fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are good for you. They’re full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients that help protect your body from disease. In addition to being good for your heart and brain health (which we’ll get into later), fruits and vegetables have been shown to improve eye health in particular; they also help keep skin looking youthful—and even ward off harmful environmental toxins like pesticides!
Finally, eating fruits & veggies not only keeps us healthy physically but mentally as well: studies show that those who eat more green things tend to be happier than those who don’t! So whether it’s a bowl full of spinach salad at lunchtime or some fresh berries with yogurt in the morning—or both–you’ll feel better about yourself when you’ve got some greens on hand at all times.”
Get enough sleep
The first step to eating healthy is getting enough sleep.
How much sleep do you need? That depends on your age, weight and body type. If you’re a young adult (18-25 years old), aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night. If you’re older than 50, try 8 hours or more; if you’re obese (body mass index [BMI] 30 or higher), aim for 10 hours per night; if you have diabetes or high blood pressure that doesn’t respond well to medication, aim for 6-7 hours per night; if allergies prevent regular bedtimes from occurring…you get the idea!
The best way to ensure that all this information gets translated into actionable steps is by implementing an alarm clock every morning at the same time so that there aren’t any surprises when it comes time for breakfast again next day after waking up early due to late nights spent out at bars trying new drinks which ultimately led us here today where we are now stuck between options: eat something healthy OR not eat anything at all until tomorrow morning because we don’t want another hangover again because this one felt like being punched in face repeatedly by someone named Bruce Lee who fought against crime lords from Hong Kong until he died from injuries sustained during battle with those baddies before passing away peacefully with family around him at home surrounded by loved ones who cared about him deeply.”
Don’t smoke or use drugs, including marijuana, cocaine and heroin.
Smoking and using drugs, including marijuana, cocaine and heroin are all bad for your health. Don’t do it!
Alcohol is also not good for you and can lead to many health problems if used too much. Drinking alcohol in moderation is fine but don’t overdo it either!
Maintain a healthy weight part of managing your overall health.
Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the most important things you can do for your overall health. If you’re overweight or obese, it can increase your risk of diabetes and heart disease. A 2012 study found that being overweight or obese increases the risk of premature death by 19 percent compared to people who are normal weight.
How much do I need to eat?
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that adults get at least 2 servings (1 cup) of fruits and vegetables daily; 2–3 oz lean meat; ½ cup beans/legumes per day; 1 tsp oil per day; 1½ cups whole grains per day (or more); 2 cups low-fat dairy products such as milk, yogurt or cheese in their diet each day

There are lots of easy ways to eat healthier so you can live a longer, healthier life.
- Eat healthy. If it’s not good for your body and mind, don’t eat it!
- Exercise regularly. Physical activity helps you burn calories and stay fit so that you feel better overall. It also helps keep your weight under control by helping reduce belly fat—the kind that can lead to heart disease or diabetes—and builds muscle mass which means increased energy levels throughout the day as well as improved performance at work or play! You’ll also find that exercising gives us an endorphin rush similar to what we get from doing drugs like heroin (which maybe isn’t such a bad thing). You won’t want these feelings when they start affecting how well your brain functions on an everyday basis though…so avoid those things if possible!
- Drink water instead of soda/pop/etc., which contain high amounts of carbonation along with unhealthy additives like sugar alcohols which may cause tooth decay over time if consumed regularly without proper brushing after meals along with regular dental checkups every six months where needed depending upon age etcetera but most importantly just don’t drink them at all because none
If you follow these steps, you’ll find that eating healthy can be easy. And once you start feeling healthier, it will only make your life better.
