I look around and most of my friends are on a diet of some sort. How that story end we know all too well. Most opt to skip meals rather than simply eating healthy meals. Doing so will eventually deprive you of the energy that is needed in this hectic world and worst, damage your health significantly.
On to developing the basic strategies to healthy diets
1) What are the best ways to prepare your meals? The short and quick answer is to avoid unnecessary frying. Baking and broiling are healthier yet still delicious ways to prepare your meals.Whenever possible keep vegetables (yes you have to eat vegetables)fresh and use natural herbs to enhance flavor.When it comes to meat you should trim fats.
2) But i have a sweet tooth! Yes, sugar is favorite of ours. Unfortunately, too much sugar can lead to serious health hazards. Most of our favorite beverages are loaded with sugar.Sugars tend to spike our energy for a short period of time then leave us weak afterward. Also our drinks leave us wanting in the areas of vitamins and minerals. If possible try to limit your sugary refreshment to 1 per day.
3) If i skip breakfast then shouldn’t i be better off? This is probably the most dangerous method to eating healthy meals.
First you will usually eat more than normal when your extremely hungry. Second, eating three meals a day have been proven to sustain and eventually lead to healthy weight loss.Finally, when you skip meals people tend to chose very unhealthy substitutes when hungry.
4) Don’t dwell on diets Remember diets don’t work, lifestyle changes do! The more obsess about things we become the harder it is to resist temptations. Also all food can be beneficial if consumed in moderation.
