How To Develop Healthy Eating Habits

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

If you are health conscious, then you always to want to eat healthy but don't know where to start. Here are the list that would be beneficial for you.

1. Eat a Variety of Foods

Include food such as fruits, vegetables, fat free dairy products, lean meats, fish and chicken. Likewise, include bread, cereal, rice, pasta, and corn tortillas when you drink morning tea or coffee.

Of fats like margarine, oil, mayonnaise and salad dressing. Do not eat a lot of fried foods.

2. Split Meals and Take Half Home

When you come back from a workout in the morning, all that comes to mind is to open the fridge and dig in all the meals just because you are feeling extremely hungry.

You will overeat this as a result.

The best way would be to split the meals and avoid large portions of foods.

3. Do Not Skip Meals

Try to eat the meal at the same time every day. Regular meal and snack time will give you more control over what you eat.

If you skip meals, you might over eat at the next meal.

4. Eat Slowly

Take time to chew, and enjoy eating your food. Stop the tendency to start a conversation with other people in front, which will cause to ignore the food at all. Put your fork down between bites.

5. Drink plenty of water

Last time, while I was reading a newspaper article, I found that drinking one and a half litre of water everyday is beneficial for your health. You keep your body hydrated throughout the day.

Drink half a litre in the morning, other half in the afternoon, and other half in the evening. Or you could drink eight glasses of water a day.

Regular soft drinks, sodas, fruit juice, punches, and sports drinks are ok in moderation.

6. Eat Healthy Snacks

Eat healthy lower calorie snacks. Snacking on chips, cookies, candy, and ice cream will only cause you to gain weight.

7. Focus on eating

It's easy to fall into conversation, think about your past, present, and future. Further, do not eat infront of the TV because it's easy to overeat when you are paying attention to the tv and not your food.

8 Increase Your Activities

Ride your bike, run, run on treadmill, lift weight, go for a swim, play basketball or any other sports, take a brisk-walk, walk the dog, or do anything that you enjoy. If you have problem doing physical exercise, ask the doctor what physical exercise will be best for you.
