Although it seems like basic knowledge it is my experience that few people eat right. Your body needs fuel to function and it needs different kinds of fuel depending on its tasks. Food and eating right is a science and can occupy a large proportion of your time. Only few people want to spend all their time figuring out how to eat right.
I have spend a lot of time researching this topic and my conclusion is that if you optimise your food and eating habits your life will become difficult and lonely. Your quality of life will be reduced if you choose that path because living is much more than eating right. Sometimes it is better to eat unhealthy food. E.g. if you attend a party and you bring your own food because you only eat biodynamic raw cabbage, then people will consider you difficult and weird; you will be pushed to the rim of any social network and that is a very unhealthy place to be. It would be better to just eat what is there and enjoy every bit of it.
I have made a few rules of thumb that you can follow and they will guarantee that you get what you need to get through the day in a productive way:
- Eat breakfast every day.
- Most important meals are breakfast and lunch
- Focus on a varied diet
- Eat a lot of vegetables
- Avoid proteins after 19.00 (7pm)
- Eat snacks (and I do not mean candy bars!)
- Avoid processed food
- Combine your eating habits with sleep and exercise.
