We all know that exercise is one of the most important things we can do to be healthier. However, what we put into the body and the way we do it, also plays a very important role.
Read these 5 guidelines for improving your eating habits!
• Drink coffee in the afternoon – caffeine takes about 10 hours on average to break down in the body. If you drink a cup of coffee in the afternoon, you can still feel the effects of caffeine after midnight, which is not very good for sleep. However, the way caffeine is broken down in the body is individual and also depends on the amount of coffee you drank, but our advice is to play it safe and drink coffee only before noon.
• Eat lots of fiber without hydration – Fiber is a great weld but only if ingested with enough water. Otherwise, serious inconveniences can occur. Fiber absorbs water, which helps food move through the body faster and get rid of it more easily. Dehydration can only lead to stool tightness problems and so drink water!
• Eat at the same time every day – our body loves routines! Numerous studies have shown that a sloppy diet is associated with an increased risk of metabolic syndromes, high blood pressure and body mass index! Our metabolism has its own 24-hour schedule and expects the same things every day at the same time!
• Replace milk chocolate with dark – dark chocolate has a high cocoa content (70% and more), which is why it is a better choice than milk chocolate. Compared to milk chocolate, dark chocolate is rich in healthy antioxidants that protect the body from aging and disease, has less sugar and contains minerals such as magnesium, iron and zinc.
• Eat more zinc for better sleep – recent research has shown that zinc levels are linked to sleep quality. Zinc is found in meat, shellfish, legumes, seeds, nuts and dairy products. You can also increase your zinc intake with supplements to ensure optimal intake.
