The Four of Pentacles is here to help guide you towards living a healthier and worry-free life.

Eliminate bad eating habits

Today, the Four of Pentacles wants you to look at your eating habits because chances are they are not the greatest. Even if they aren’t horrible, there’s always room for improvement. Here are some of the diet-related issues the Four of Pentacles suggest you keep an eye out for.

The bad habit of overeating.

Overeating is when you are consuming more food and calories than your body needs. By consuming additional calories that your body won’t be able to burn off, you’re putting yourself at risk of weight gain and other adverse health issues.

Undereating can make you weak and unhealthy.

Undereating is just the opposite of overeating. If you consume less food and calories than your body needs to run smoothly, it could cause some adverse health effects. Your body needs the proper amounts of food to convert it into energy for you to run off of throughout the day.

Undereating can lead to weakness and extreme fatigue, as well as several other health problems.

What an excess amount of sugar can do to your body.

Excess amounts of sugar can cause your body to overproduce insulin, which has very damaging effects on your arteries and heart. Having the bad habit of consuming too much sugar too often can lead to heart failure, stroke, or other cardiovascular diseases.

Consuming excess amounts of sugar regularly also puts you at risk of developing type 2 diabetes and weight gain.

Ensure the proper amounts of food from each food group in your diet to avoid nutrient deficiencies.

When you’re not consuming enough of each food group, you’re at risk of developing a nutrient deficiency. This is especially so if you’re not having the recommended portion of fruits and vegetables in your diet, which is five 80g portions a day for an adult.

People are commonly deficient in iron, magnesium, vitamin D, calcium, and vitamin B12.

A diet can help you take control of your eating habits and health.

The Four of Pentacles wants you to feel like you’re in control of your diet and health. Some things in life are out of your control, and that’s okay. Just be sure you make an effort to control the things that you can, like your diet, eating habits, and improving your overall health.

Creating and planning a diet seems like a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be an extensive, complicated process. Keeping a journal to count your macros can be super helpful in preventing you from overeating. It will also ensure that you’re eating enough food from each food group.

Another easy yet helpful diet strategy is to meal plan, which is where you make and portion your meals ahead of time. That way, you already know how many calories you’ll be consuming each day, and it’ll all be ready to go for the week ahead.
