A healthy diet isn’t complicated. It doesn’t mean we can’t eat what we like; it’s more a matter of eating in moderation. Doing so will improve our health, stabilize our weight to where we want it to be, and give us a boost of energy.
We don’t have to develop an entirely new grocery store list to eat healthy. It’s more a matter of shopping intelligently (such as reading labels, discarding those products that contain added salt, sugar, chemicals that you don’t understand, etc.), and preparing foods in healthy ways.
- Plan your healthy menus and stick to them. If you don’t have time to do it daily, do it on the weekend for the upcoming week, and shop accordingly.
- Don’t give in to your junk-food cravings.
- Eat whatever size servings satisfy you without overdoing it.
- Chew your food well! It helps the digestion.
- Cut down fats. Eat less red meat and more chicken and fish, and don’t bread anything!
- Steer clear of sausage and hot dogs.
- Increase fiber intake, such as whole wheat bread and cereals, and fresh fruits and vegetables.
