Nutrition is a choice, so choose wisely
I was asked to write an article for a local county newspaper in the Jacksonville area, Clay Today. I was hesitant at first, not sure what I would say, but after speaking with the columnist, Bernie Berania, we decided to focus on nutrition. I'm not a certified nutritionist, so I just discussed what works for me. How I went from an overweight 20 something to a fit, healthier 30 something.
I think it turned out well!
Some of the tips I shared included:
Meal Plan – create a weekly calendar of your meals and snacks and meal prep Sunday for the week.
"Shop the perimeter of the grocery store" – avoid the middle aisles as much as possible.
Eat clean foods – nothing processed, no added sugars, no chemicals – typically if you can’t read the first few ingredients, put it back on the shelf.

Special thanks to Bernie for allowing me to share in his column, Fit Life. See you on the running trails :-)
