5 DOs and DON’Ts to Live By if You Want to Overcome Bad Eating Habits
Eating healthy should be a fairly easy thing to do. Unfortunately, the majority of people struggle with bad food habits. Either we eat too much junk-food, or we binge on random heavy meals instead of eating on a structured schedule. Whether it’s because you made a new year’s resolution, or you just want to live your life in a positive way, now’s the time to revolutionize your diet.
It’s all About Balance:
Health Expert Brian Krans explains that “A balanced diet gives your body the nutrients it needs to function correctly. To get the nutrition you need, most of your daily calories should come from: fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and lean proteins… To maintain good health, limit your consumption of empty calories, and instead, try to get your calories from foods that are rich in other nutrients.” Here are a few helpful tips on how to eat healthy:
1. DO Replace Junk Food with Fruits and Vegetables:
Instead of loading up on potato chips and cookies, eat fresh snacks like carrots or raisins. Fried and processed foods might taste good, but they’re packed full of toxins.
2. DON’T Eat the Majority of Your Food from Restaurants:
If every single meal you eat comes from a restaurant, that puts you in the danger-zone of calorie consumption. Most restaurants cook with lard and butter, which makes their meals excessively rich.
3. DO Get a Good Night’s Rest:
Did you know that sleep plays a big role in diet? A good night’s rest gives your body time to metabolize and burn all of the food you ate during the day. The less you sleep, the slower you digest.
4. DON’T Eat Like You’re Running Out of Time:
The process of digestion happens at a very gradual pace. Wolfing down food forces the body to eat too much by overtaking it’s natural cycle of satiety.
5. DO Drink Plenty of Water:
Water is one of the most important nutrients a person can consume. Not only does it dissolve sodium and sugar, but it functions as the basic building block of every cell, tissue and organ system in the body.
Eating healthy boils down to three basic elements. Variety, consistency and simplicity. If you want to achieve variety, make sure your plate has a good mixture of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. In order to achieve consistency, eat three square meals a day and avoid snacking in the middle of the night. In order to achieve simplicity, eat plenty of fresh organic food.
