Optimize Your Diet and Health With Our McMurray, PA Chiropractor
At Anderson Chiropractic, we've seen patients accelerate healing from an injury, manage or reverse a chronic illness, improve their athletic performance, lose weight (and keep it off), and simply enjoy day-to-day-life more comfortably and fully...all by just making smart changes to the way they eat. But with all the hype and competing ideas out there about what "good" nutrition looks like, how can you know what's right for you? McMurray chiropractor Dr. Scott Anderson has a few ideas to get you going in the right direction.
5 Ways to Modify Your Diet for Better Health
Focus on Whole, Clean Foods
Make the bulk of your calories come from real food—plants, lean protein, and healthy fats. Organic, ethically and humanely raised, and locally sourced are ideal whenever possible. These foods more nutrient-dense, taste better, and are free of inflammatory and harmful substances like sugar, artificial preservatives, and fillers...and yes, treat yourself in moderation!
Get Your Portions Right
Eat enough to support exercise and not so much you gain excess body fat. Dr. Anderson can help you calculate an intake that works for your needs!
Optimize Meal Timing
Make your breakfast low in carbs and rich in fat and protein. The former kicks you out of a prime fat-burning state and the latter keeps you satisfied longer (no more mid-morning sugar crashes!).
Use Natural Supplements
Things like food transportation can affect how many nutrients are in our food. Quality natural supplements are a great insurance policy to make sure your body is getting all it needs to function well.
Be Present During Meal Time
When you eat, just eat. Be grateful for your food. Savor the flavor, chew slowly, and put your phones down! Being present during meals helps you develop a healthy relationship with food.
