Healthy Eating For Writers

Michael Di Gesu invited me to do a guest post today on eating healthy. We writers tend to spend a lot of time with butts in chairs. That’s great for our writing, but not so great for our health. Besides the lack of exercise, we often end up snacking and eating junk, especially when “in the zone.” For a list of healthy alternatives and ways to balance our eating habits, visit Michael’s site.

  1. At least I run. I feel that off sets the snacks, which I'm careful not to over do. :)

  2. Working full time means I don't sit with my butt in a chair as much as some other writers may do. But yeah, I could use a bit more exercise. I've fallen off the wagon a bit lately and need to rein myself back in!

  4. I confess I eat good but sometimes slack in the exercise department. I tend to do more in the fall and winter, so it's prime exercise time now.

  5. Even though I do water aerobics, the stationary bike and yoga... I still have that belly....

  6. Will check it out, Diane. I don't snack or eat junk food anymore after losing a bunch of weight a few years ago, but I'm always looking for ways to be healthier.

  7. Off to visit. My struggle is remembering to stay healthy by eating. I often get so immersed that I go straight through until dinner time and then wonder why I'm so shakey.

  8. I follow Michael, so will check out that post!

    Being healthy now will pay you back later in life.

  9. I'm into healthy eating too. Can't do without it. When I eat badly I feel gross and I don't think I perform as well as a writer.

  15. It is so true writers spend a lot of time with their 'butt's' in chairs. I find I do editing my photos as well! Very interested and heading over!
