Food is fuel, so it’s a good idea to fill the body with the most nourishing options. People who plan to kill it in the classroom or in the workplace should be intentional about creating the meals that are going to power them all day long. These are six eating habits of highly successful people.
They Eat When They’re Hungry
When busy people skip meals or forget to eat, it can hinder their performance. Food is a source of glucose, and the brain uses glucose to do its job. Going hungry can make it hard to focus or cause cravings so distracting it’s hard to get things done.
Chrissy Teigen, who is a model, television show host, mom and cookbook author, isn’t shy about indulging in her favorite foods. She confessed on Twitter that she eats a fish a day, thanks to her mom’s traditional cooking skills.
They Drink Plenty of Water
Who better to talk about nutrition and success than Queen B? She told Vogue UK that one important way she cares for her body is by staying hydrated. Each day, she aims to drink a full gallon of water, adding lemon for flavor.
They Eat a Good Breakfast
A good breakfast is a great way to start the day, and Bumble founder, Whitney Wolfe Herd, makes the first meal of the day a priority. She told The Newsette that she typically tries to make a green smoothie. Her favorite ingredient combination includes romaine lettuce, spinach and blueberries.
They Eat a Balanced Lunch
Lunch is a great time to refuel, and the right foods can help provide energy throughout the rest of the day. Andy Murray, who is a world-famous tennis player, eats salmon and rice for lunch each day. Because he has to eat a lot of calories, he also drinks smoothies between meals.
They Eat Their Veggies
Former United States President, Barack Obama, declared broccoli his favorite food in 2013 according to The Washington Post. That’s a good choice, considering this veggie is high in fiber and protein and provides essential vitamins like A and E. If you want a more presidential diet, think about trying broccoli in a stir-fry or eating broccoli cheese soup once the weather turns cool.
They Love Fruit
Like vegetables, fruits provide the body with many of the nutrients it needs to run well. While Oprah loves bread, she also loves fruit. Among her favorites are passionfruit, strawberries, bananas and blueberries.
Success looks different for everyone, and you don’t need to be running a major tech company or have a media empire as a reason to care for your body. Take a note from these influential figures and honor your hunger, stay hydrated and eat a varied diet.
