Additional Tips

Here are some additional tips I would recommend if you may find yourself struggling with these things:

  • If you can't get enough protein in, start by eating a palm serving for 2-3 meals every day.
  • If you can't get enough veggies or fruits in, try to get at least 2-3 meals with fruits and veggies.
  • Start by drinking one cup of water first thing in the morning. Coffee comes after. This may help you habitually consume more water throughout the day.

I would recommend you put these into your daily reminder list and get into the habit of checking each one of these goals off.

It's a fun way to "game-ify" your nutrition and sleep.

We hope this helps you on your nutrition and sleep practices.
