Healthy Living Tip #478

Incorporate “crowding out” foods into your diet.

WHY: An effective way to cut out unhealthy foods from your diet, the crowding out principle suggests you add more to your diet rather than taking foods away. Increase your intake of nutritious foods, and your body will have less room to process nutrient-deficient foods.

HOW: Eat and drink healthfully in the morning, which will leave less room and desire for unhealthy foods later in the day. If you snack on fruits and vegetables during the day, you’re less likely to binge on a pint of Ben & Jerry’s at night.
