Our San Jose personal trainers get asked all the time about healthy eating. The more clients we work with, the more obvious it has become that there’s no right answer. However… there is one general rule that applies to almost anyone.
Eat when you’re hungry.
Too many people today confuse hunger with other things, such as boredom, frustration, stress, or even fatigue. But when you’re REALLY hungry, there will be distinct physical signs. The biggest one: your stomach rumbling.
Tune into your body.
From the time we were children, we’ve been told to eat at specific times, whether or not your body is ready. We need to retrain ourselves to tune in and listen to what it is physically telling us – your body, not your brain!
Don’t wait so long to eat that you want to eat everything in sight or you get low blood sugar. But test it for a week. Begin eating when you feel physical hunger and stop at satiation rather than fullness.
Pro Tip: If you want to get lean and stay that way, eat when you’re hungry and stop before you’re stuffed. Prioritize vegetables and protein, and you’ll be good.
