Ideas for a good start to National Nutrition Month

March is National Nutrition Month® (NNM), an annual campaign by the School of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association). This year’s theme, “Personalize Your Plate,” invites people to learn to make food choices based on developing good health and exercise habits.

Since there is no single way to get a good meal, programs must be organized to meet customer needs. For body counts, development, interests, and unique goals, NNM describes four strategies for implementing individual nutrition plans individually:

1. Cook and prepare

2. Food intake

3. change your diet

4. Visit a Registered Dietitian (RD).

For those who really want to enjoy good food, self-organization is key. The 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) provide nutrition advice and a safe place to start for many Americans. The DGA can be seen as the top of the well, while the bottom of the well (small hole) represents nutrient uptake.

So what is the best way to reduce risk? Here are four smart plans, from the NNM website, that your clients can use throughout the month (and beyond) to build a lasting, personalized personality for a healthy diet.

Week 1: prepare a meal for the week

Planning a dinner menu for the week is key to a healthy diet. Ten minutes of weekly planning takes the energy associated with making decisions at night when you are tired and hungry. Plus, it helps create a shopping list for the week. “Word of the night” can cut down on planning; To illustrate, consider Monday without food, Taco Day on Wednesdays, Slow Cooker Wednesdays, Sauteed Fridays and Saturdays, and Thursdays and Sundays as the night before.

Tip: Put plates or whiteboards in your kitchen on weekdays as a showcase to create a weekly dinner plan.

2nd week: try fresh fruits or vegetables

A variety of foods can increase food and antioxidant levels, can improve health, and reduce all inflammation. When creating a shopping list (based on the weekly menu), encourage your customers to expand their number by adding “fresh” fruits or vegetables that they haven’t tried yet. Also, only buying foods from a specific list can prevent you from shopping, which often includes unhealthy foods.

DIAMOND: Try rare fruits and vegetables like dragon fruit, carambola, kale blossoms, rainbow trout, bok choy, rainbow trout, yellow potatoes, and jackfruit, as well as herbs, ka dill, coriander, and rosemary.

Week 3: Try New Directions

Your customers know they need to eat well, but you don’t always get to know them. When expanding palate foods from fresh foods, encourage them to try new recipes, especially those that include vegetables as the main ingredients.

Tip: When trying new recipes, sit down to eat with your family (or a group of friends). Sit down and socialize when eating out with family or friends.

Week 4: Go to Public Health

NNM recommends that you register with a Registered Dietitian (RD), a healthcare professional who agrees to review the nutritional status and develop a diet plan. Fortunately, telehealth improvements require expert analysis and some advice. Not sure where to start? Talk to your primary care physician, as they can prescribe for RDs and health professionals at the gym.

Pegaso following the health plan during the month of NNM can seem like a New Years’ resolution, and many people who spend the first half of the year are motivated to improve their health and nutrition. However, by early February, the motivation had dissipated and it had taken another turn. So the question to ask yourself is how can your clients maintain a healthy diet, until March and beyond when the pressures of life are overwhelming and motivation is low? Skill is not the answer; I couldn’t find the answer in an interesting post or comment.

Instead, remind your clients that the answer is to gradually adopt new habits and try to improve, rather than perfect. It also involves implanting the idea that nutrition is a two-pronged approach (one or the other). Eating, eating and eating habits are “unhealthy” or “unhealthy”. Nutrition is at the beginning, where some foods are more nutritious than others and some practices contribute to better health than others. People move only on this scale, sometimes eating good nutritious food and other times eating unhealthy food. Your goal as a health professional in the gym is to use your clients to put you in a “more valuable asset.”

The last step is to develop a sense of growth in your customers. As explained in Mindset, by Carol Dweck, those with a “growth” mindset (but not a “balanced” idea) accept the challenge, persevere and persevere, accept effort, and learn from criticism.

You can help your clients develop growth ideas for positive change by encouraging them to:

• Focus on the process, not the results

• See challenges and efforts as a way to overcome them.

• Seek the spirit and prosperity of others

• Avoid defining themselves based on the results.

• Be prepared to trip, fall, and fall as you remember what they learned.
