With the world back in motion, people are busier than ever. But trying to cram in a meal — literally — leads to bad eating habits. Eating too fast leads to bloating and gas. According to Healthline, it can also increase your risk of Type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.
Consider sticking to a mealtime schedule so you don’t feel rushed when you eat.
Increase fish intake
Fish is loaded with nutrients like proteins, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D. It’s also a great food for heart and brain health. To get the most out of fish, roast, pan sear, air fry or bake whenever possible.
If fish isn’t your thing but you still want to get omega-3s, look into vitamins such as fish oil or omega-3 pills.
The first meal of the day is very important. And yet one out of five people in the U.S. skip it. The most common reasons listed for opting out of breakfast are not having enough time and not feeling hungry in the morning. But skipping breakfast can impact your metabolism, energy levels and hunger throughout the day.
A great way to make sure you eat breakfast is to plan it out. The latest trend of preparing breakfast is overnight oats or parfait bowls.
Drink more water
The amount of water you’re supposed to drink seems vary depending on the source — some experts recommend eight or nine 8-ounce cups per day, while other studies suggest 11.5 cups for women and 15.5 cups for men. Whichever number is correct, you’re probably not drinking enough water.
Your water intake needs are partly based on your lifestyle. Consult with your health care provider to weigh your options on how much water you should be drinking.
