Healthy eating and nutrition are difficult to nail down. Though there are seemingly endless tips, tricks, and hacks that you can use to zero-in and make sure you’re getting all of the nutrients your body requires, you can still easily end up spending an entire Sunday eating pizza and pints of Ben & Jerry’s. It’s something everybody struggles with — and sometimes taking an unorthodox approach to nutrition is a relatively easy way to get yourself back on track.
If you’re willing to get weird, try these non-traditional nutrition rules.
1. Eat constantly
Logic would dictate that you should decrease your consumption when trying to get in shape — not increase it. But constant grazing may actually be beneficial. It depends on what you’re eating entirely.
If you tend to restrict yourself to two or three meals a day, which tend to be rather big and calorie-dense, try switching that up by constantly snacking throughout the day instead. But stick to nutritionally-sound foods. Eat veggies or lean proteins, not salty or sugary snacks. This may help you keep control when dinner time rolls around and portion sizes are up to you.
