If you want to be healthy then the best way to do that is diet and exercise. If you have read many of the articles on this site you know that I have already beaten exercise down your throat and you should be well aware of what you need to do in order to be healthy. Now it is time I give you 3 healthy eating tips to make sure everything you eat is benefiting your body, not harming it. The first thing that you need to know about eating healthy is that everything needs to be done in moderation. When it comes to eating healthy you should never stuff yourself to the point of being full because your stomach takes roughly 15 minutes to be able to tell if it is actually full or not, so I recommend that you eat slowly and stop when you think you might be full.
Here are the 3 healthy eating tips that I promised you
Drink Water – One of the ways you can eat healthier is to drink water before, during, and after your meal. Drinking water will help your body realize that it is full when at the time it really isn’t. All water will do is make you feel full so you stop eating and then most likely you will be full after about 10-15 minutes. What I tend to do quite often is add Crystal Light into my water that way it isn’t so plain and bland. If you don’t like Crystal Light then adding Creatine is a great way to add fiber and other nutrients in your water.
Eat Small Portions – Something I know for a fact that most people don’t do is eat small portions. Whenever I go out to eat some place I am always seeing people get the biggest meal they can and try to down the entire thing. If you have ever been to a healthy restaurant you will notice that they have many small dishes and the reason for this is so you can pick and choose what you would like that way you don’t stuff yourself.
I know that eating small portions isn’t always an option because some places have huge dishes that you simply can’t eat all at once but since it looks so good you want to. The simple solution to this is go to dinner with other people and share a plate. Doing this will not only help you eat healthier but it will also save you money.
Eat Fruit – If you have seen the recommended daily intake diagram then you will see that you are supposed to eat 3 servings of fruit each day, do you do that? I bet there are maybe 35% of people who actually eat the recommended daily fruit servings and that is a shame. Fruit is really good for you and if you ignore it then the vitamins and nutrients you will get from them won’t help you at all.
Just know that eating fruit as well as following the other 2 tips will ensure that you have a healthier life than you currently do.
