What (and how much) to eat to stay healthy

What (and how much) to eat to stay healthy

  • The video features Vanessa Rizetto, a registered dietitian, breaking down essential nutrients and how much men and women should consume. Ah, it’s about time someone took the mystery out of eating right, eh?
  • Fiber’s where it’s at for gut health and weight management. Men need 35 grams and women 28 grams. Easy peasy ways to up your intake include adding chia seeds to oats, and yes, even some dark chocolate has fiber. Who knew!
  • Don’t skimp on the veggies! You should have at least one cup at lunch and dinner. Whether you chomp them down raw or cook ’em up, it’s all good. Just make sure they’re on your plate, even if they’re as simple as sliced carrots or bell peppers.
  • Thirsty? Aim for 90 ounces of water daily. If that feels like climbing Everest, try adding a pinch of Himalayan sea salt to help with electrolytes and hydration. It’s like giving your water a little upgrade.
  • Snacking is a minefield but doesn’t have to be! Look for options between 150-200 calories that offer a balance of fiber, protein, and fat, like dark chocolate and almonds. That’s the sweet spot, the comfy couch of snacking, if you will.
