Plan of Action
How my plan will look daily:
I will eat small proportionate meals throughout the day, preferably 5 small meals, 2 in between breakfast and lunch, and lunch and dinner. These meals will consist of fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy. With this I will also drink my suggested daily intake of water.
My short-term goal is to be able to complete my SMART goal within 10 weeks.
My long-term goal is to be able to maintain the main factors of my current goal for the rest of my life.
“Body fluids transport waste products in and out of cells. The main toxin in the body is blood urea nitrogen, a water-soluble waste that is able to pass through the kidneys to be excreted in the urine, explains Guest. “Your kidneys do an amazing job of cleansing and ridding your body of toxins as long as your intake of fluids is adequate,” he says. When you’re getting enough fluids, urine flows freely, is light in color and free of odor. When your body is not getting enough fluids, urine concentration, color, and odor increases because the kidneys trap extra fluid for bodily functions” (WebMD).
“The nutrients in fruit are vital for health and maintenance of your body. The potassium in fruit can reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. Potassium may also reduce the risk of developing kidney stones and help to decrease bone loss as you age” (Dairy Council of California).
“Did you know that including vegetables in your diet is probably the easiest way to stay healthy, trim and nourished? Since vegetables are low-calorie, nutrient-rich foods, they help you to stay in optimum health over the long term by keeping your weight in check. According to a recent study, plant-based foods contain antioxidants (polyphenols) that may improve blood sugar in people at risk for diabetes and heart disease” (Organicfacts.net)
