Healthy Lifestyles

Health Lifestyles ImageDr Julie Schourup M.D. makes these healthy lifestyle suggestions to her patients.

She says that health issues can be eliminated with attention to a few basic healthy principles:

Here are her Healthy Lifestyle Suggestions.

Eat Healthy

  • Eat all the fresh fruits and vegetables desired
  • Eat 1 portion protein/mead; 1 portion = the size of your palm; best proteins are beans, lentils, fish, fowl
  • Eat 1 portion carbohydrate/meal; 1 portion = I tortilla OR I slice bread OR 1 cup cooked rice/noodles/grains OR 1 potato! Whole grains are best.
  • Eat only 3 tbsp fat /day or less
  • Avoid canned, packaged, pre-prepared meals, sodas, junk food, fast food
  • Drink caffeine/alcohol products moderately
  • Drink at least 2 Litres water/day
  • Colored foods are preferable to white foods; i.e. brown rice/bread is more nutritious than white rice/bread, sweet potato/yam is more nutritious than white potato
  • Eat as much variety as possible; every natural food has something to offer
    Sleep enough to feel refreshed upon awakening; this is 8 hours/night for most people
