Tips for Healthy Nutrition

  • Eat breakfast daily - it boosts your metabolism and helps you focus.
  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate - maintaining adequate hydration helps concentration.  Try to drink at least 64ox of fluid each day.
  • Eat moderate portions throughout the day.  Listen you your body:  stop eating when you feel conformably full - not overstuffed.
  • Eat a variety of foods - eating the same things day after day can lead to health problems and nutrient deficiencies.
  • Do not turn to food when feeling stressed.  The use of caffeine and/or energy drinks can cause a sudden 'rush' that leads to crash or fatigue.
