Nutrition in Your Live
More people than ever are interested in learning about nutrition. Making informed food choices and developing healthful eating and physical activity habits can make a big impact in our lives. Our dietitians are all about helping everyone better understand the ins and outs of all things food and diet. A few tips that they put at the top of their list:
Eat More Mindfully
With so many distractions, it can be hard to remain in touch with the present moment. Through mindful eating—which means listening to what and when your body wants to eat and taking the time to enjoy every bite—you can allow hunger, fullness and taste guide your eating habits and choices.
Understand Portions & Serving Sizes
Diet trends come and go, but portion control remains an important part of establishing healthy eating habits. Aramark dietitian Kelley Magowan reminds us that “it’s not always what you decide to eat, but how much. There is room for all foods in a well-balanced, healthy diet, but some should be eaten less often and in smaller portions than others.”
Demystify Popular Diets
There is a world of diets out there that people try every day, but what’s the truth behind the most popular ones? Aramark dietitian Amy Anderson sheds light on popular diets and offers tips to put you on the path to success. “The best eating pattern is a well-balanced one that helps you achieve your health goals and is one that you can stick to. After all, food is meant to be enjoyed!”
Note: Since everyone’s health history and nutritional needs are so different, please make sure that you talk with your doctor and a registered dietitian to get advice about the diet and exercise plan that‘s right for you.
