Eating Habits

I’ve come to the conclusion, after all these years, that I’ve not been eating right at all. Sad to say, I’ve had poor eating habits.

Having observed others, read a bit, and thought it through, I’ve made the following guidelines which I hope to follow from now on.

  1. Eat three meals a day.
  2. Eat around the same time each day.  My body at this age does best when there is some rhythm or routine.
  3. Eat food thoroughly before swallowing.
  4. Do not drink during the meal unless it’s a hot beverage.
  5. Do not over-eat.
  6. Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day.
  7. Ensure that each day’s meal includes food from the basic seven food groups

Basic Seven Food Groups

Foods from group 6 should be eaten every day.  Also each day, include:

  • One or more servings from group 1, group 2 and group 5.
  • At least two servings from group 3 and group 4.
  • Some foods from group 7.
I hope to do this along with exercise.
