Healthy Eating and Dieting with A Disability

Hey everyone!  Today I will talk about healthy eating and dieting while having afruit_and_vegetable_basket disability.  This goes hand and hand with my weight loss and disability post.  If you all remember I did discuss my weight loss journey that I’m currently on with the help of SlimQuick Pure Mixed Berries drink mix for women.  An update on that will be coming next week.  In this blog I will share tips on dieting and eating healthy being disabled.  (I must say though before doing anything like this it is important to consult your doctor.)

With disabilities you have to make sure you’re eating healthy because too much of anything can cause more issues or our bodies to work against us.  That’s why before I continue I must reiterate please see a doctor before doing any of this.

  • Set goals (start small and be realistic)
  • Willpower, Determination, and Patience (willpower allows you to stay away from the foods you don’t need, determination will help you stay focus on your goals, and patience is a must because this will be a journey and it will produce results quickly.)
  • Eat moderately (eat smaller meals and snacks throughout the day, instead of three big meals a day.)
  • Begin a workout regime (it can be for 10 to 15 minutes a day…just get your body and muscles moving to sweat.)
  • Drink lots of water 10 to 12 glasses a day
  • Fiber Fiber Fiber (this is IMPORTANT because it controls blood sugar and blood cholesterol levels as well as manage weight)
  • Potatoes, Broccoli, Beans, Brown rice, Apples, Strawberries, and Whole grains
  • Complex Carbohydrates (moderate amounts of carbs but only eaten with protein because they are broken down slower than simple carbohydrates.)
    • Complex carbs – Squash, whole grains, broccoli, and berries
    • Simple carbs – Sugar, desserts, sodas, alcohol, and refine flour
  • Protein (is a huge part to your diet because it helps you feel fuller faster. So it should be a part of every meal when eat.)
    • Pork, chicken, fish, beef, and even tofu

With these steps you should be well on your way to eating healthy or dieting appropriately.  Always remember just because it has to be done differently doesn’t mean it can’t be done.
