William Maloney, a health and human performance advisor joins us today on the Dads with Daughters podcast. William has four kids, two sons and two daughters and today we will learn about him as a father but also talk about health and nutrition and how you can find time to add more nutrition into your own life.
When it comes to nutrition you have to have a regular conversation about it to keep yourself closer to the actual conversation per se. It’s good to have the conversation because if you do not, you may get to a point where you are not where you need to be personally or you are being told that you need to be on medicine or change your lifestyle because you are overweight. To start this conversation William mentions having a conversation with yourself, but also with your family asking questions like:
- What did you eat today (this is especially important for your kids if you are not preparing the food that they eat). If you are aware of what you eat you may be more willing to watch out for and limit foods that can harm your health.
- Also, if you talk to another person about what you ate you will be more aware of the food that you are putting inside you and this will help you make better long term decisions as well.
There are some myths that William shared that people that are concerned about their nutrition need to be aware of. Some of these myths include:
- You have to be focusing on protein/carbohydrates and fat
- Water and how much water should you be drinking
Also, when it comes to nutrition, you have to be aware of your surroundings when you go to the store to purchase the food that you want to consume. Part of this starts with going to a store with a list. Having a list will allow you to be able to stay on track and not get distracted by everything else that can lead you off track.
The other thing that you have to consider is the time to prepare the food that you are purchasing. The sourcing of your food is very important. William Maloney has a list of what is looks for when he is purchasing food. You can find the list below.
William Maloney also talked about when you are eating and when you go out for food you should consider the 80/20 rule where 80% of the food that you are eating is healthy and 20% is not.
Following these steps will allow you to model good behaviors that you can pass on to your kids.
