The Behavior of Choosing What To Eat

If you feel like you are constantly challenged to stick to the promise you make to yourself to eat healthy, lose weight, or just take better care of yourself, there are things to consider about behavior around four different patterns of making food choices. Let’s discuss some of these.

Snacking Can Do A Body Good

Snacking is an important part of eating healthily. But that doesn’t give you carte blanche to grab whatever is labeled as snack food and assume it is OK to eat. Good snacking can accomplish a number of positive things; maintaining consistent blood sugar levels, maintaining energy levels, and preventing overeating to name just a few.

Lasting Positive Change

Unfortunately, as human beings we are hardwired for quick fixes. Lifestyle change doesn’t offer quick fixes, but what it does offer is much better overall health for the rest of our lives, and long-term solutions for the problems we think we are addressing by dieting.

You Can't Out Exercise a Bad Diet

Far too often, the main objective of working out is to look good. While commonly assumed that a physique that looks toned and fit is one of health, this is not necessarily the case. There is a lot going on inside your body that is far more reflective of your overall health than just your physical appearance.

To Diet, Or Not To Diet

Most people who choose ‘to diet’ are looking to lose weight. And yet, very few of us know anyone who goes on a diet once and solves their weight problem. If this were the case the diet industry full of books, and specially made food, would not be the multi-billion-dollar business it is today.

Macronutrients: Let's Put Them All Together

Protein, Fat, Carbohydrates. We’ve talked about each individually; now let’s put them all together. In this entry, we will discuss how much of each macronutrient you should be consuming and why there is not just one number that applies to everyone. Focusing on macronutrient ranges is as important for athletes as it is for non-athletes. The correct balance will effect your performance in life, as much as it will affect performance in competition (even if you are only competing against yourself!)

Packaging Claims: What to Believe?

When we named our brand Read The Ingredients, it was a conscious decision that we wanted to inform you, the consumer, about how important it is to know what you are putting in your body. Perhaps we should have called our brand Read The Back of The Package.

Protein: The Overhyped Macronutrient

When it comes to macronutrients, none is more heavily marketed than Protein. Why? The easiest, most direct correlation is that it builds muscles.

How the Human Condition Dictates our Food Choices

Human beings are creatures of habit, and also creatures that strive to be “happy/comfortable/content". Sometimes our routines and behavior are a result of habit. That is, it’s the way we’ve always done it, and not necessarily a choice we make because it will lead to the most optimum outcome. Are these two conditions actually in conflict with each other? When it comes to your health, they might be …

Fatty Acids are a Key Component of a Well Rounded Diet

Recommended to make up 20-35% of your daily intake of macronutrients, fats play several vital roles in your body (i.e. appetite regulation, vital organ protection, thermoregulatory, backup source of energy after glycogen from carbohydrates). Focusing on the right fats is as important as making sure you are getting enough fatty acids in your diet.

Let's Lighten Up On the Numbers Game
