Proper eating sounds simple and sensible, but when you are recovering from an injury or surgery, it is even more important than ever before. You know your body needs the right fuel to get through any day, but when you are injured, getting the right nutrients into your body is essential. If you had surgery on your foot or ankle or you had a sudden injury, your body will be working hard to repair itself. In order for it to do so as quickly and efficiently as possible, you will need to give it the right items to help. Here are the do’s and don’ts for healthy eating when you are recovering.
Do Drink Water
Keeping yourself fully hydrated at all times is very important. Water is key to how your body functions on many levels and it is also key to your recovery. Make sure you drink water throughout the day and keep a bottle or glass handy at all times. Many times, you might eat because you are hungry when really you are thirsty. Try drinking water instead of reaching for high calorie snacks.
