Avoid focusing on dessert to improve your nutrition. Do not eat more than a few desserts a week.
Buy a good blender to make delicious and nutritious fruit smoothies. You can then remove ice cream completely from your diet, and instead, enjoy tasty fruit smoothies. Try whipping up a quick and delicious fruit smoothie with fresh fruit, yogurt and low-fat milk as an alternative to diet-breaking ice cream.
It’s good to have someone on your side when you make a major life change. Beginning a diet is no exception! Good allies would be someone who has changed for the better or someone who is on the same level you are on. Having someone around that you can talk to will help a lot.
Eggs are a good source of nutrients and protein. Make sure you have eggs every know and again. Eat egg whites and toss the yolks if you need to watch your cholesterol and fat. The egg whites are very nutritious and are devoid of fat and cholesterol.
Replace your white flour, breads and pastas with whole wheat versions for better nutrition. Whole wheat flour not only has more nutrients and fiber than white flour, but it is also less processed.
This little trick will help you choose healthy food when you’re in a pinch. When your diet consists of many different types of meals, you avoid getting sick of one particular food and are more likely to stick with your diet.
A daily multi-vitamin is not a substitute for nutritious foods. At best it can fill in the gaps in your diet. The best nutrients come from food, not pills. It is not a good idea to take more than one all-purpose multivitamin daily, unless your doctor has advised otherwise. Taking excess vitamin supplements can disturb the balance in your body.
Opt for fresh fruit instead of juice. Although whole fruit does have natural sugars, fruit juices often have refined sugar or other sweeteners added to the juice. Actually, there are certain fruit juices with a higher sugar content than soda. Fruit is easily processed by your body, and it’s high in vitamins and minerals. Consuming three to five portions a day will help to prevent certain illnesses like heart disease.
Read the labels of prepared foods carefully. Just because a product has a label stating that it’s “reduced fat” doesn’t mean that it’s not high in other unhealthy ingredients, such as sugar or salt. Highly processed foods are not ideal for losing weight. The ingredients listed should not be words that the average consumer cannot understand. Steer clear of any product with a laundry list of artificial ingredients.
Reading was the easy part! Putting into practice what you have learned will take a little more effort but be well worth the energy spent and even give you more energy in the long run. You have taken the initial steps necessary to begin positive changes in your consumption habits and once you put them into action you will be much happier and healthier for it!
