4 Steps To Eating Healthier
When you make the decision to eat healthier, you will need to take a few steps to ensure you are successful.
The first step would be to prepare your own foods. When you go to the store, you should buy foods that are real foods and not processed. By buying items with very few ingredients and making your own foods you can control what you eat a lot easier. Also, when you eat out at restaurants, the food is notoriously almost always unhealthy, this is because the restaurants are trying to make money, and do not usually take too much care in the health of the food.
Another step you need to take to ensure you will be successful in eating healthier is to make sure you eat regularly. When you wake up, you should have a meal, to give yourself the energy to get your day started. Many people fall for the trap of starving their bodies, thinking they will lose weight this way. It is actually counter productive to do this. You want to constantly feed your body calories from healthy sources. When you starve yourself and skip meals, your body will react naturally by holding onto fat. This is because biologically, your body is trying to keep you alive, as we have not always as humans had a constant source of food.
Keep your diet simple. Fad diets or diets you read about in tabloid magazines or books are usually not effective and unrealistic. If you eat balanced meals throughout the day, while avoiding foods that are full of sugar and bad fats, you are well on your way. Typically your plate for a meal should have a lot of vegetables, some kind of grain, and a small portion of meat or protein such as beans.
The biggest step in your long term decision to eat healthier would be consistent, but do enjoy a cheat snack or meal every once in a while. If you completely cut out foods you enjoy, you will almost certainly end up binge eating. So if you allow yourself a bowl of ice cream or a candy-bar once a week, you will not do much damage. Many people who try to cut out treats completely end up gorging on treats. By allowing a snack here and there that you enjoy, you will be much more likely to stick to a long term healthy eating plan
