Eating Healthy is NOT depriving yourself from the foods you love
Eating healthy or "dieting" is not about strict nutritional philosophies, following unrealistic guidelines, staying unnaturally thin, or even depriving yourself from the foods you enjoy and love. However, eating healthy is about feeling great, having more energy, controlling your mood, and ensuring your health will keep you alive and happier longer. The ONLY factor preventing you from achieving is knowing and learning the nutritional basics. You need to find a way that works for YOU. We will discuss planning ahead, how to create a tasty yet healthy food choice, and maintaining a healthy diet.
Healthy Eating Tip 1: Setting yourself up for success
In order to set yourself up for success, you need to think about planning a healthy diet by implementing small and manageable steps rather than a complete change in your typical routine.
Keeping it simple - Instead of being overly concerned with counting calories or controlling portions sizes, picture your diet in terms of color, variety and freshness. This will allow it to be easier for you to make healthy decisions. Pay attention to what foods you love and simply recipes that include a multitude of fresh ingredients. In due time, your diet will naturally become healthier and tasty to you.
Keep your new 'diet plan' a slow change - Changing ANYTHING overnight is not realistic or even smart. Overwhelming yourself by doing so will lead into you cheating yourself and your diet, eventually leading up to your giving up on your new transition. Take baby steps towards your day-to-day routine. Add a hearty salad after a meal that you typically skipped out on the greens. Once you've mad a routine of this, try substiuting products you use that you know is not good for you with healthier alternatives. For example, you can switch from butter to olive oil or grape seed oil for cooking. Again, once you've mastered this, you can continue with your transformation.
EVERY change you make to better improve you diet counts! - No one is perfect, and you don't have to be either. You're entitled to 'cheat days' and treat yourself to a tasty unhealthy item. You don't even have to completely eliminate foods you enjoy too much to have a well balanced and healthy diet. Remember, your long term goal is to feel good, have more energy, and reduce the risk of a heart attack or other cancers and diseases. Every healthy step forward toward you healthy food choices count.
*Incorporate water and exercise and consider them *as* a food group in your diet
Water helps flush our body of toxins and waste products. over 90% of people are dehydrated and they don't even know it. People eventually mistake thirst for hunger. Staying hydrated will naturally keep you fuller longer and help you choose to eat healthier.
Exercising has a multitude of benefits. You need to find that activity that you enjoy, something that you dread. Exercising will speed up metabolism, clean and oxygenate your blood system. Exercising will also help you instinctually to eat healthier and make it habit.
Healthy Eating Tip 2: Moderation is Golden
People often think eating healthy at both extremes; either you're eating completely healthy or not at all. A key take-away from this article is to tell you that dieting is all moderation. Your body is the physical outcome of the overall eating habits you maintain. You want to focus on acquiring a healthy eating habit that you can maintain and develop for life rather than a few weeks or months. Everyone needs carbs, protein, fats, fiber, vitamins, and other minerals to sustain a healthy body.
Moderation does not mean eating less than we do now, but more specifically it means eating less unhealthy stuff and replacing those meals with good items. This means no refined sugars, saturated fats, or high glucose syrups for example). This does mean eating more fresh fruit, vegetables, etc.) Eating bacon for breakfast as you know may not always be a good healthy choice, however in moderation and eating a healthy meal afterwards would be okay.
Healthy Eating Tip 3: It's not always what you eat, it's HOW you eat
Healthy eating is not only the food you put in your mouth - it is also about how you think about food and how and when you eat it. Healthy eating habits can be learned and is very important to stop and think about food as a nourishment rather than a habit you acquired over time to gulp down between work hours, breaks, or down time.
The key to great success in weight loss is to spread out your meals throughout the day - so you are eating the same amount of food in a given day, but in smaller portions. This way your body can digest the same amount of food in smaller chunks. Also, this allows your metabolism to increase efficiency throughout the day because there is always something for your body to do.
Eating Socially - Eat with others when ever possible. There are many benefits when eating with others. How you are emotionally and mentally correlates to how healthy you can be. Eating in front of the television or computer screen can blind you and inhibit you to over-eat mindlessly.
Enjoy your food and chew responsibly! - Chewing your food slowly and savoring every bite. Don't rush or inhale your meals. Doing so you're not tasting the meal, you're not realizing what you're putting in your mouth. This will in turn allow the amount of food going in unsupervised. This is the biggest problem I see is that people eat without even knowing how much. The joy of eating shouldn't be the portion, but the taste, texture, and sensation.
Listen to your body - When you feel that 1st sign of hunger, ask yourself if you are really hungry. Right when you feel that sign, enjoy a large cup of water 1st. If after 5 minutes, you're still feeling that hunger in your stomach, treat yourself to a healthy small portion meal to hold you over to a real meal. If this is the meal you were planning, then eat. During the meal, stop 1/2 way through and let that food you just ate digest a little. If after that little break you're still hungry, you can finish. Most of the time, I notice I fill up after taking small breaks to allow the food to satisfy my hunger. It takes a few minutes for your brain to tell your body that it has had enough food - so eat slowly!
Eating Breakfast! Starting your metabolism - A hearty breakfast jumpstarts your metabolism. As you know now, the traditional 'Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner' way of thinking is wrong. Breakfast should start your day, but there needs to be a small portion of food to eat before you have you lunch.
Avoid late dinner - Try separating your meals throughout the day so that dinner is eaten 3 or so hours before sleep. Early studies show that eating when you are most active and giving your digestive system a break each day may help regulate weight.
