Five Simple Nutrition Tips for Writers

Let’s face it—when you’re a writer, living a sedentary lifestyle for several hours per week is commonplace. That’s definitely the case for me and not to mention, much of my time is spent in a very delightful and delicious neighborhood coffee shop with aromas of soft-baked cookies, homemade pies, and every calorie-ridden coffee concoction you can imagine. I need that coffee shop background noise since my creativity is stunted in pure silence; however, I do employ some strategies to prevent the treats from making their way in front of me and my computer. If you’re also a writer with never-ending deadlines, hitting the gym often takes a backseat. These five simple nutrition-based tips will do wonders for weight management and overall wellness without taking time out of your busy wordsmithing schedule.

1: Control portions—even if it’s healthier fare! Too many calories is never conducive for weight loss.

2: Ditch the high-glycemic carbohydrates such as bread, pasta, cereal, and crackers. Get your energy and fiber from nutrient-dense green veggies and low-sugar fruits.

3: Get the good fat! Yes, there are amazingly healthy fats found in foods such as avocado, extra-virgin olive oil, nuts, and wild salmon, and they will keep you satiated, while possibly improving cholesterol.

4: Choose quality proteins such as wild fish, organic poultry, and grass-fed beef to limit environmental toxins found in animal products.

5: Never go hungry! Always be prepared with healthy snacks on-the-go. Avoiding the coffee shop or workplace treats is far easier if you’re already satisfied!
