Balanced Nutrition 101


Balanced Nutrition 101

If you are like me, you are always searching for ways to make eating healthy both easy and enjoyable. You also probably get overwhelmed with the amount of nutritional information that’s out there. So I’m jumping on today to talk about 3 simple things you can do to create a balanced approach to your nutrition.

No gimmicks.

No skipping steps.

This is about building your nutrition from the ground up.

Number 1: Drink Water

Up to 60% of the human body is made up of water. 

So you can imagine how it’s going to function when you are hydrated vs when you are dehydrated. This simple task can drastically improve your health. If you already do this, keep at it. But if water is a foreign word to you, start by buying a water bottle you keep with you throughout your workday and get to drinking.

Number 2: Cook More

Don’t know how to cook, buy a cookbook or look-up a recipe blog. 

I can’t stress enough how much this skill will not only improve your health, but save you money along the way. Aim for cooking nutritious meals with whole foods like quality meats, vegetables, and your favorite unprocessed carbs.

Number 3: Drink Water & Consume Nutritious Food Consistently

Yup, you’ve got it – do the first and second thing we just talked about consistently.

Your body LOVES consistency over time – it’s what creates real change.

You’ve probably heard about the “80/20” rule. 

This means that the majority (or 80%) of the time you stick to whole foods and nutritious goodies but you also allow yourself to have some fun with things that might not quite align with your goals when you want them (aka 20% of the time).

This structure encourages healthy eating without overbearing restrictions.

At Bluprint Fitness, we help busy professionals build the body and lifestyle they’re proud of year round. 

And part of this process is figuring out how to create a balanced approach to nutrition.

Because we believe being EVERYONE deserves to be comfortable in their own skin.
