Following are five more healthy eating habits for you:
1.???? Take Lean Meats:
We all know that poultry and fish are low fat foods by nature. Some categories of fish such as salmon, fresh tuna and sardines can provide the body with antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids. These can benefit your health greatly. When you go out to buy meat, ask the butcher to give you lean cuts in case of beef/pork. Also, before cooking these make sure you have removed all the apparent fat. Try to assign a vegetarian diet to some days every week. A good way of getting rid of some daily calories and adding nutritional value to your meals is to substitute meat with more nutritious choices such as beans, lentils or tofu.
2.???? Substitute your calorie rich side dishes with healthier choices:
An example of this method is the replacement of cheesy pasta//mashed potatoes by steamed vegetables/salads.
3.???? Make a habit if taking water rather than sodas, milk, coffee, alcoholic beverages and juices:
This can help you in cutting back on about hundred of calories on a daily basis. An increased intake of water also helps in a more efficient use of nutrients by the body, keeps the body energized, makes exercise extra beneficial and helps you in feeling full for longer time periods. Those who can follow this habit for about one week will benefit from rapid weight loss, drastic improvements in their energy values and physical appearance.
4.???? Fight the temptation of alluring grocery aisles:
Try to stay away from the areas of grocery stores that have things such as sodas, pizzas, biscuits and ice creams. Also avoid highly processed and fattening food products. This will make it easier to buy healthier foods.
5.???? Prefer home cooked meals instead of eating fast food.?
Make it a point to take along something home cooked to your work. This will not only be healthy but will also keep you away from all the unhealthy, fat rich fast food.
