Healthy Eating: 9 Simple Tips to Eat Healthier and Have More Energy

Simple, Healthy, and Fat Burning!

The thing with eating healthy so our bodies have lots of natural energy and functioning
right, is that it’s easy to do, and its easy not to do. When we eat healthy we have more energy, self esteem, sex drive, focus, and our all around attitude towards life improves.

Here are a few simple tips to help make eating healthy less of a chore and more of a good
habit. (This is based on basic well being, not a carb restricted/fat loss diet, or any other diet for that matter)

1. Eat a variety of nutrient-rich foods. You need more than 40 different nutrients for good
health, and no single food will supply them all. Your daily food selection can include
bread and other whole-grain products; fruits; vegetables; light dairy products; and meat,
poultry, fish and other protein foods. How much you should eat depends on your body
type, activity level, and some other factors.

2. Eat moderate portions. If you keep portion sizes reasonable, it’s easier to eat the foods
you want and stay healthy. If you can split up all of the food you eat into 5-6 even meals,
you will be off to a good start and your stomach will thank you. Skipping meals can lead
to out-of-control hunger, often resulting in overeating. When you’re very hungry, it’s also
tempting to forget about good nutrition. Snacking between meals can help curb hunger,
but don’t eat so much that your snack becomes an entire meal.

3. Enjoy plenty of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Carbs are NOT the enemy…sorry
extreme dieters. Surveys show most Americans don’t eat enough of these foods and
they’re essential for your bodies well being. If you don’t enjoy some of these at first, give
them another chance. Look through cookbooks or online for tasty ways to prepare
unfamiliar foods.

4. Maintain a healthy weight. The weight that’s right for you depends on many factors
including your sex, height, age and heredity. Excess body fat increases your chances for
high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, some types of cancer and other illnesses. But
being too thin can increase your risk for osteoporosis, menstrual irregularities and other
health problems. If you’re constantly losing and regaining weight, a registered dietitian can help you develop sensible eating habits for successful weight management. Check
our post on low-glycemic eating. Regular exercise is also important to maintaining a
healthy weight.

5. Reduce, don’t eliminate certain foods. Most people eat for pleasure more than nutrition.
If your favorite foods are high in fat, salt or sugar, the key is moderating how much of
these foods you eat and how often you eat them.

You can identify major sources of these ingredients in your diet and make changes, if
necessary. Adults who eat high-fat meats or whole-milk dairy products at every meal are
probably eating too much fat. Use the Nutrition Facts panel on the food label to help
balance your choices. We used to to eat everything on this earth and we lived longer, why
wouldn’t you want to try eating more natural foods than modified foods?

If you love fried chicken, however, you don’t have to give it up. Just eat it less often.
When dining out, share it with a friend, ask for a take-home bag or a smaller portion.
Remember to live a little.

6. Balance your food choices over time. Not every food has to be “perfect.” When eating a
food high in fat, salt or sugar, select other foods that are low in these ingredients. If you
miss out on any food group one day, make up for it in the next one. Your food choices
over several days should fit together into a healthy pattern and be consistent.

7. Know your diet “pitfalls.” To improve your eating habits, you first have to know what’s
wrong with them. Write down everything you eat for a week, or even try three days. Then
check your list according to the rest of these tips. Do you add a lot of butter, salad
dressings or artificial/modified ingredients? Rather than eliminating these foods, just cut
back your portions or find a natural alternative. Are you getting enough fruits and
vegetables? If not, you may be missing out on vital nutrients.

8. Make changes gradually. Just as there are no “superfoods” or easy answers to a healthy
diet, and try not to expect your eating habits to dramatically change overnight. Changing
too much, too fast can get in the way of success because some people don’t prepare
themselves mentally. Begin to remedy excesses or deficiencies with modest changes that
can add up to positive, lifelong eating habits. For instance, if you don’t like the taste of
skim milk, try low-fat or almond milk.

9. Remember, foods are not good or bad. If you don’t reward yourself here and there eating
can seem like a chore or boring. Select some foods based on your total eating patterns,
not whether any individual food is “good” or “bad” based on what the media says. Don’t
feel guilty if you love foods such as apple pie, chips, candy bars or ice cream. Eat them in
moderation and choose other foods to provide the balance and variety that are vital to
good health.Live a little 🙂

If you stumble a little, just pick up the ball again! It’s not the end of the game!
Being healthy is a good habit and will improve many areas of your life! Confidence, Self
Esteem, Motivation, Energy, Focus, Sex life, and much much more!
