Has anybody tried to eat more healthy, recently?

Asked by Kardamom (29594points) April 22nd, 2018

What things are you doing differently? Are you cutting out certain items? Are you trying a “diet” of some sort? Are you adding in certain “healthy” items (like fiber from veggies, good fats from nuts, lycopene from cooked tomato, those kinds of things).

If you are eating more healthy, how long have you been doing it, do you feel any better, and have you lost any weight?

Do you plan to keep up your new healthy eating routine?

I haven’t been eating a ton lately. Going through a lot of stress so I usually only eat one or two things a day but what I do eat I try to make healthy like a peach or some sort of fruit or a salad.

Well, I quit smoking so I haven’t been as cautious about what I eat and, as a result, I’ve gained about 10 pounds. But that’s to be expected. It’s been a little over a month and I’ve about got it licked. Then I’ll go back to my regular eating habits.
The biggest culprit has been grape juice and orange pop! I gave up Diet Coke.

Oh, and to answer the second half of your question, I changed my eating habits 30 years ago, lost 50 pounds and never gained it back. I have never been on a “diet” in my life. Diets, by their very nature, are utterly self defeating.

I am into fasting now and the positive results I have had with it.
Weight loss and new found energy…sleeping better and more
clear headed just to name a few. Did some 72 hour fasts and
now I just eat one meal a day and then switch it up and maybe
fast for 24 hours. When I fast I drink plenty of water and take
electrolytes also. Read “The Obesity Code” and it will change
your mind about eating in general. We do not need 3 meals a day.

I’ve been saying that for years @MooCows. That “three squares a day,” mentality is part of the reason we have the obesity problem we have. “OMG, I missed breakfast so I have to eat twice as much at lunch!”

But, be careful about your liquid intake.The IS such a thing as drinking too much water.

We are trying to go vegetarian. My husband has blood sugar and triglyceride trouble, and we think this will help. I am not as faithful to this style of eating as he is, but I am about 90%.

The thing that has surprised me most is that I don’t miss meat at dinner. I thought I would be craving pork chops or a steak, but no.

Most of us eat FAR more than we need.
