The last thing most of us want to hear is someone harping on us about how we eat. As a teenager, all I wanted to eat was candy bars, pizza, and Frosted Mini-Wheats. As teens, we kind of know we won’t be able to eat poorly—seemingly unscathed—forever, so why not take advantage of it? While living for the moment is arguably one of the best perks of being a young adult, adolescence is also the time when we begin to examine our future. We are starting to make college plans and decide what we want our adult lives to look like. We should do the same with our health. Good nutrition influences adolescent and teen growth.
Your Macros should look something like this:
- Protein— 30% of your diet:
Meat, Cheese, Nuts, Eggs, Seeds, Beans, Legumes, Mushrooms, etc.
- Carbohydrates— 45% of your diet: Whole Fruits and Veggies, Whole Grains, Starches, Root Veggies, etc.
- Healthy Fats— 25% of your diet:
Cold Water Fish, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Flax Oil, Chia, Hemp, Raw Butter, Ghee
#1. Eating Healthy Gives You Confidence and a Sense of Accomplishment
‘When we get something we want—a promotion, an ice cream cone, or a kiss from a loved one—our brain releases dopamine. This chemical is often known as the “feel-good” neurotransmitter because it does just that—it makes us feel good. It’s possible to manipulate your dopamine levels by setting small goals and then accomplishing them.’
#2. Taking Responsibility for Your Body Develops Maturity and a Sense of Independence
Growing into adults can be awkward, scary, and confusing. Our adolescent years are where we begin to make our own decisions… whether our parents are ready for it or not!
#3. One Healthy Habit… Leads to More Healthy Habits
#4. Positive Vibes, Attitude, and Manifesting What You Want
‘We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.’ —Buddha
‘Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.’
–Luke 6:38 (NIV)
