Simple Rules for Healthy Nutrition

  • Eat three regular meals a day – “Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dinner like a pauper”
  • Leave enough space in the stomach for the stomach juices to do their work – If you think you can have one more portion, then it is time to stop!
  • Have colourful food on your plate – You start salivating as soon as you see the food which is the start of the digestion process
  • Focus on your meal only, each meal takes only 15 minutes – Try not to watch TV/iPad/Blackberry, do work, etc at the same time so as to let your body focus on the act of digestion
  • Avoid white refined foods such as food made with white flour; iodised salt; sugar; etc
  • Have fresh sun ripened vegetables and fruits and freshly prepared food
  • Chew each mouthful thirty-two times
  • Keep a positive outlook while eating
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day – perhaps try adding a teaspoon of fresh lime juice to warm water
  • To help the body maintain the optimal alkali pH, 80% of food intake should be alkali type foods (more on this next time…)
