They Cook: Most nights. Why? Because healthy people want to know what they’re eating and what exactly they’re putting in their body. Cooking allows you to be in control of what you put in your mouth and how much of it. I can’t even begin to tell you how much additional sodium, sugar, and processed crap restaurants use in their dishes.
They Prepare: They pack healthy snacks for on the go/travel (trail mix, nuts, protein bars, skinny pop, shakeology balls, etc) and if they don’t have anything healthy on hand, they know their go-to’s.
They Check Labels: The least amount of ingredients the better. If they can’t pronounce it, they won’t eat it.
They Modify: Dressing/sauces on the side, sometimes they ask for NO sauce, lettuce wraps instead of a sandwich, and if they’re really being good they will ask for no cheese.
They Choose Wisely: Healthy people still enjoy a treat or two every now and then but they make sure to practice moderation. For example(s), they have cheat meals not cheat days. They will have french fries at lunch but not again at dinner. Simply put, they pick and choose their battles.
