Something that is of prime importance when it comes to being a business owner is looking after your health, both physically and mentally. As they are both connected, one of the biggest ways in which you can look after yourself is by eating the right foods. But what are the right foods to eat?
There is a wealth of information of there on what you should and shouldn’t eat, and it seems to change every day. Except for the basics that is. What do I mean by the basics? I simply mean that you should avoid eating any processed foods and high sugar treats. Instead you should focus on eating only highly nutritious foods that are naturally grown (or grow naturally in the case of animals).
Something that people often get wrong is their serving size. We mistakenly believe that we need a lot more food than we actually do. Check out these series of images for actual serving sizes of fruit:

For me, I have recently started eating a ketogenic diet after reading about it on ketogenicdietforwomen.com.
It was exactly what I was looking for.
I had read a lot about how the keto diet was supposed to be really good for you – lots of fats a little protein and hardly any carbs. It is apparently excellent for people with type 2 diabetes or epilepsy. I don’t have either of those but I’m certainly interested in the weight loss that this way of eating offers. And yes, I have lost a few pounds, quite easily actually. Eating a diet that is high in fat pretty much means you are never hungry.
I have a bullet proof coffee in the morning, a salad with a nice oily dressing at lunch time and then for dinner I’ll have a big plate of vegetables, some fatty meat like pork belly, and then I’ll cover the whole thing in butter. It sounds ridiculous as I’m writing it! But you have to try it to see for yourself.
