Being a Holistic Hottie is all about feeling your best, and that means ditching the restrictive diets that leave you hangry and frustrated. We believe in a sustainable approach that empowers you to make smart choices about your food, whether you follow intuitive eating or use tools like macro tracking. The key is to find what works for you in the long run!


Habit #1: Prioritize Protein Power at Every Meal

Protein is the superhero of your diet! It keeps you feeling full and satisfied, while also supporting your amazing metabolism. Making protein a priority at every meal is a simple yet powerful habit for lasting wellness. Here's why:


  • Muscle Magic: Protein is the building block of healthy tissues, and it plays a crucial role in keeping you feeling satisfied and supporting your metabolism. It helps with muscle growth and repair, keeping you strong and toned.


  • Fiber Fantastic: Many protein sources, like legumes and lentils, are also packed with fiber. This dynamic duo keeps you feeling fuller for longer, reducing cravings and aiding in weight management.


  • Healthy Fat Focus: Including healthy fats alongside your protein sources can further enhance satiety and nutrient absorption. Think avocado, extra virgin olive oil, or perhaps seed or a few nuts. Remember, fats pack a caloric punch, so enjoy them in moderation.


  • Colorful Crew: Don't forget your vibrant fruits and veggies! Aim for a rainbow at every meal (and snack!) to pack in the fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals your body craves for optimal performance.


Habit #2: Mindful Munching Makes a Mighty Difference

Research has shed light on the powerful impact of mindful eating habits, especially for gut health. Have you heard the advice to "drink your food"? It simply means thorough chewing – the first step in healthy digestion. Chewing breaks down food, allowing your body to release the necessary enzymes for proper absorption.


Take it a step further: Aim for mindful bites, savoring the flavors and textures of your food. This not only enhances the enjoyment of your meals but also helps prevent overeating. Slower eating translates to a fuller you, as your brain takes about 20 minutes to register satiety.
