One thing that women know about healthy eating is that the healthy habits keep changing. Who has the time or the patience to keep up? After all, today's on-the-go working girl can barely pause to count the change from her morning coffee, much less count carbs, fat grams, or calories.
At last, there's a guide to good eating, created just for women, that helps them navigate the dietary temptations they face every day and still enjoy the foods they love--no complex nutritional calculations or abandonment of entire food groups required! In The Daily Fix , nutritionist Alexa Fishback distills the fundamentals of good nutrition into 12 distinct, easy-to-adopt daily habits targeting "trouble zones" in which women tend to make unhealthy food choices, and includes on-the-spot strategies for staying on track.
For example:
-Healthy Habit #1: Need a cuppa to start the day? Drink up! Coffee is an excellent source of antioxidants. Just be wary of the add-ons--including artificial sweeteners, which can ramp up appetite
-Healthy Habit #5: Stuck in a lunchtime eat-and-meet? Learn how to healthfully navigate the conference room spread. (Hint: Discreetly peel away the cheese slice from the pre-made turkey sandwich, and save 100 calories)
-Healthy Habit #9: Socializing with colleagues after work? A margarita may be hip, but it also pads the hips. Order red wine instead; it's up to 400 calories lighter--and it has health benefits as well
These are dietary habits for the real world, patterned after a woman's typical daily routine. Fishback teaches women to "eat clean"--establish healthy dietary habits through habit management--rather than fear certain foods. With a few slight adjustments, they'll be on the path to lifetime weight control and well-being.
