Doc Darby: Becoming A Healthy Eater

Being a healthy eater requires you to become both educated and smart about what healthy eating
actually is. Being food smart isn’t about learning to calculate grams or fat, or is it
about studying labels and counting calories.

Healthy eating is all about balanced and moderate eating, consisting of healthy meals at least
three times per day. Healthy eaters eat many different types of foods, not limiting themselves
to one specific food type or food group.

Eating healthy requires quite a bit of leeway. You might eat too much or not enough, consume
foods that are sometimes more or less nutritious. However, you should always fuel your body and
your brain regularly with enough food to keep both your mind and body strong and alert.

A healthy eater is a good problem solver. Healthy eaters have learned to take care of themselves
and their eating with sound judgement and making wise decisions. Healthy eaters are always aware
of what they eat, and know the effect that it will have on their bodies.

When someone is unable to take control of their eating, they are also likely to get out of control
with other aspects of life as well. They could end up spending too much, talking too much, even
going to bed later and later.

You should always remember that restricting food in any way is always a bad thing. Healthy eating
is a way of life, something that you can do to enhance your body or your lifestyle. If you’ve
thought about making your life better, healthy eating is just the place to start. You’ll make
life easier for yourself, those around you, and even your family.
