At Sleekgeek, we’ve made it our mission to help real everyday people live healthier and happier lives (find out more about our missions and healthy lifestyle revolution here).
You can see this in action every day in our Sleekgeek Facebook Support Group.
Over the years, we’ve come to realise that nutrition is incredibly personal and different for each individual. There is no one-size-fits-all approach.
However, we’ve also recognised the value in having a basic template to start with. Something that starts with a quick snapshot of what a healthy diet might look like and then helps you build on healthy habits from there.
Below are links to some of the guidelines that we have come up with. We use them ourselves personally, we recommend them to anyone who asks us for help, and we use them extensively in our official Sleekgeek Coaching Program.
What should you eat? Well, regardless of what diet or nutritional approach you take, one truth that we know is that everyone can benefit from eating more real food.
That’s why we have put together a list of some of the healthiest foods that you can easily and immediately start adding to your diet to help you build a solid foundation of good health.
Perhaps the most effective thing that you can do to improve your health and fitness is to design your environment for the better so that you set yourself up for success.
When your environment works with you rather than against you, healthy habits come more easily and less willpower is required to stay on track. That’s where the Sleekgeek Kitchen Makeover comes into play.
You are more likely to eat whatever food you keep around yourself, good or bad. So take back control!
The Sleekgeek Food List easily doubles up as a super convenient shopping list to help you stock up on more healthy and nutritious foods.
If you just wander around the shops waiting for something to catch your eye so that you can put it in your basket, you are more likely to end up with unhealthy rather than healthy choices.
But, with a shopping list full of nutritious foods, you can hit the grocery store, get in and out quickly, and leave knowing you’ve bought all the things you need to be prepared in the days ahead.
At Sleekgeek, we understand that “knowing” and “doing” are two very different things.
You probably have a rough idea which healthy foods you should be eating more of (such as those on the Sleekgeek Food List) and which less-healthy foods you should be eating less of, right?
The real question is how do you actually put that knowledge into practice in an easy and do-able manner?
This is where the Sleekgeek Healthy Meal Template comes into play. It’s all about keeping things do-able and as simple as going 1+1+1+1=4.
It’s not a magic formula, but when you have specific boxes to tick off you tend to make healthier meals by default because you put more thought into it.
Of course, eating the appropriate amount of food is critical for weight loss and effortless weight maintenance.
That’s why we love using hand-sized portion sizes as a hassle-free way to customise your meals to fit your individual needs.
It’s actually super easy, portable, scalable, and flexible!
