Staying healthy is a conscience choice and often times it’s a hard lifestyle to maintain. However, there are 3 very easy habits that you may or may not be doing already that can help you maintain your healthy lifestyle easily! These hacks take little to no effort at all and are worth doing for the health benefits that come with them:
Stay pH balanced.
Drinking lemon water throughout the day is one of the easiest things you can do to alkalize, or neutralize acid in the body. Though lemons are not alkaline themselves, they possess a low sugar content and high alkaline mineral content, having an alkalizing effect on the body. Lemon’s citric acid enhances your body’s ability to naturally flush out toxins from your body. Drinking lemon water has also been proven to aid in digestion.
Here’s how to do it: Cut half a lemon and juice it into a large glass or water bottle (at least 8 ounces). After squeezing, dump the rest of the lemon into the glass. Refill your glass with lukewarm or room-temperature water for easy all-day lemon water.
Add fruit to your diet.
I’m not a big fan of juicing or juice diets mainly because eating a whole fruit gives you higher nutrient density. If you are looking to eat clean but don’t want to spend $10 on a fresh juice, there is a super simple solution: Eat a whole fruit.
The fiber contained in a whole fruit or vegetable is not available in juice. Fiber lives in the roughage, pulp and skin, which is extracted when juicing.
Reduce carbohydrate intake with one easy tweak.
Eat your sandwiches open-face or bun-less. Let’s get one thing straight, I’m anti-diet, but sometimes I need to cut back on carbs. One slice of wheat bread has around 78 calories and 14.3 grams of carbohydrates. Instead of altering your entire diet, make small and easy adjustments to prevent calories from piling up.
