One of the problems with eating”well” is finding a healthy mix of foods that you can stand to eat. Depending on your food preferences, that can be a big deal. If all of the nutrients you need come from a class of foods that you really just can’t stand, getting them in your diet can be a challenge.
For many foods, soups are a good delivery vehicle. Once a soup is put together and simmers for a while, all of the flavors blend together. The offending foods just blend into the mix. Then the challenge is to get enough soup into your diet.
There are actually two factors at play when it comes to eating well. Getting the right amount of good stuff into your body to meet your goals. Knowing what you need to keep yourself healthy and trim can be a complicated thing. You need to be careful not to over eat while still getting enough nutritious food to fuel your efforts.
In order to do this correctly you will need to spend some time understanding not only good nutrition (and good nutrition that contains the food you need in order to handle the needs of your body as you train) but also how your particular style interacts with that plan.
You will really need to find foods or food groups that fit your plan and that you like. If you do not succeed at that you will constantly have cravings that you can’t quite identify but that have the potential to torpedo your long range goals.
Find a way to answer those cravings, they are not always bad things. There are two types of cravings, those that are learned and those that are innate. Sometimes it’s your addiction to sugar that gets you in trouble. Sometimes it’s a nutrient that your body isn’t getting enough of and that craving will have you eating all sorts of random stuff until you accidentally hit on the right food.
It is worth your while to try to sort those cravings out. Find out which are learned addictive behaviors and which are actual signals. Once you do that spend some time to nail down what your body is craving and how to resolve that craving so you can handle it in a rational, non-binging manner.
Eat what you like, like what you eat. So long as you cover the other bases, everthing else will work out.
