Eat Smart

In this week's challenge you must Eat Smart. Setting “SMART” healthy eating goals is a great way to help you feel and look your best. “SMART” stands for goals that are: specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic and time-framed. Setting “SMART” goals can also help you achieve bigger goals you may want to set for yourself over time.A smart diet is vital to our health.It can provide the nutrients for our bodies to make us healthy and maintain our sense of well-being.Knowledge of a healthy diet can certainly influence our food choices and eating behaviour.Food choices and our eating behaviour, however, can affect how much nutrients are absorbed by our body.Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean dieting or giving up all the foods you love.Give your body the nutrient-dense fuel it needs, and love every minute of it!

Benefits of eating Smart:

  • Boost your energy
  • Manage your weight
  • Reduce your risk of illness
