A Few Tips On Eating Right
We talk a lot about eating right but some simple tips to do so will help you go a long way. That is why we are posting this simple little article with a few tips on healthy eating.
We aren’t going to sit here and tell you about what eating healthier does for you. You can find that information in a lot of our other posts. So, lets just get to the tips.
1 – Drink More Water
You may be saying that drinking water doesn’t count for eating. Well, if you drink more water with your meals, you will reduce the chance of over eating. Even if you are eating completely nutritious foods, over eating still isn’t good. Take sips of water after every bite and eat slowly to avoid eating too much.
2 – Avoid Over-Processed Food
This means fast food and a lot of boxed or bagged food that you see in the store. As a general guideline, the food on the outer walls of the grocery store are healthier than what you find in the aisles. Cheating on your diet is okay every once in a while but it shouldn’t be a habit at all.
3 – Think About What You Drink
Soda, coffee with a lot of sugar and creamer, energy drinks, and things of that sort should be out of your house forever. Of course, you can still drink coffee and tea because of their antioxidant benefits, but limit that sugar and any other additions that you may put in there. Reduce cream and sugar in coffee and use lemon in tea instead of sugar. The only liquids that should be staples in your diet are water, milk, and 100% juice blends (apple, grape, orange, etc.).
4 – Plan Meals
If you plan ahead for your recipes and meal preparation, there is much less chance to just order a pizza. If you are always prepared, you will not have a problem!
