Introducing healthy eating habits should not be difficult. If you turn to a healthy life, it will be just one part of your “new” life. It is in any case better than constantly keep and try various diets. Experts suggest these seven simple habits will help you begin a healthy life.
Keep only healthy foods in your house, fresh fruit and vegetables. Let them be constantly at your hand, such as: carrots, apples, pears, blueberries … Buy whole grain cereals – oats, brown rice, bread, cereals with whole grain. Certainly, you should always keep the pantry full with nuts, various seeds, fresh turkey breast and eggs. Do not buy soft drinks, cookies and other sweets.
EAT SITTING DOWN
When you eat sitting down, you eat slowly, enjoy the food and maybe you will eat smaller quantities. But if you have a habit of eating „on feet”, then often you are not even aware that you are eating. Eat while in company and enjoy during meals.
DRINK WATER INSTEAD OF LIQUID CALORIES
This is one of the easiest ways to reduce your sugar intake. Diet sodas have no nutritional value, they are sweet and do not help in losing weight. Try to drink a glass of water before each meal – you will eat less.
SNACK ON FRUIT INSTEAD OF CHIPS
If you always have fruit in your house, you will acquire the habit of eating it and it’s certainly a better solution than the bag or flips. Buy some fruit and take it to the work. If that’s not enough, chop the fruit into the yogurt.
COLORFUL SALADS EVERY DAY
Colorful vegetable salads are a great way of bringing a variety of nutrients to your body, without excess calories. Make a variety of combinations and play with the necessary antioxidants, vitamins, potassium, fiber and other nutrients.
CHEW YOUR FOOD WELL
If we chew food longer we eat slowly and eat smaller amount of food. The body needs at least 15 minutes to realize it is full. It often happens that our eyes are hungrier than the stomach so if we eat quickly we will intake more food than we actually need.
PUT LEFTOVERS AWAY
If you leave the remains of the lunch on the kitchen desk, they will entice you to a little bite. So remove everything from sight and this problem is solved.
