6 secrets to eating right from a pro in the know

 
Psst! Kathie Dolgin, founder of EnergyUp!, wants to let you in on a little secret: What you eat has far more to do with how your body looks (and how you feel) than working out. Here are six answers to your biggest eat-right questions:

 

Q: “What can I eat on the go without grabbing junk food?”

A: In the a.m., between classes and before practice, Kathie says raw almonds, bananas and low-fat/low-sodium string cheese are great snacks that can fit into your purse.

 

Q: “I know I should be drinking water, but how much is enough?”

A: “You need to drink a minimum of 64 ounces of water a day,” Kathie says. “I start each day by wearing eight bracelets on my left wrist. Every time I drink 8 ounces of water, I switch one bracelet from my left wrist to my right. Presto! Fabulous hydration.”

 

Q: “I love having dessert after dinner. What are some healthy options?”

A: “Amazing, sweet fresh fruit! My favorites: berries, peaches, mangoes, bananas. Nature’s candy. You can’t go wrong,” Kathie says.

 

Q: “I hate the pudge around my middle. How can I get rid of it?”

A: ““Cutting your sodium intake will get rid of a lot of that bloat,” Kathie says. “Also, avoid processed flours and sugar.” Decreasing the amount of salt you consume and boosting the healthy stuff, like fresh fruit ‘n’ veg, will help you lose water weight and increase your energy.

 

Q: “I’m sick of having lunchables or sandwiches every day for lunch. What else can I bring to school?”

A: “I love sliced veggies, and replacing the bread in my sandwiches with big lettuce leaves. Yum!” Kathie says. Try mix ‘n’ matching your meals with whole grain crackers, cubes of cheese, hummus or tofu-based dips, yogurt and granola or apples and peanut butter, too.

 

If you’re eating school lunch at the caf, try to load up on fresh salad bar picks, and go light on the dressing. A side of fresh fruit instead of chips is a great choice. And ditch the breaded ‘n’ fried options, OK?

 

Q: “I feel like I’m always eating too much. What can I do to stop?”

A:  “ You’re probably eating foods that stimulate hunger. I call these ‘trigger foods,’” Kathy says. “They’re usually salty, sugary, processed foods. Stick with real, unprocessed food. Also, a lot of time you think you're hungry but you're really thirsty. Drink water, then decide if you're actually hungry.”
