Laird Hamilton's 10 Rules for Eating a Healthy Diet

Big wave surfing legend Laird Hamilton gave Men's Health his 10 tips for eating right and staying in shape. Laird is also a big fan of yoga and working out as we have noted in this blog in the past.

Here are his tips (Mens Health)


Push Start - The Big Smooth


I like to begin the day at the blender with a smoothie. My favorite recipe contains five supplements that help me optimize my nutrition. A single tablespoon of Catie's Organic Greens, for instance, equals seven servings of green vegetables. I also add apple or cherry juice and frozen bananas and berries for a nice consistency. My morning smoothie gives my body a huge amount of nutrients, which are easily absorbed because liquids are easier to digest than solids. Less than an hour later, I'm ready for whatever activity is on the agenda.

Don't Graze

I don't like to eat unless I'm hungry. When I sit down to a meal, I want my body to be in a state of craving. Not eating until you're hungry means you're not snacking much, if at all.


Chew Slowly

All too often we take our food for granted. I'm always reminding myself to eat more consciously, to savor what I'm chewing. Nature has given us millions of unique flavors. Our job is to explore and appreciate them. It also makes you hyperaware of how much you're eating.


Eat Real Foods

Be wary of any food that has been created by humans rather than nature. The ingredients on the labels of processed foods, such as the average cracker or potato chip, are mind-boggling. If I don't know what it is, it's not going into my body.


Be Diverse

The food universe is vast, and in it there are hundreds of nutrients, minerals, enzymes, essential fatty acids, bioflavonoids, phytochemicals--all kinds of elements. Each one provides something unique to our cells. That's why the more diverse your diet, the healthier you're going to be. Mix it up when you grocery shop. Don't just buy the same stuff every time.
