How you can start an ‘Healthy Eating Everyday’ habit!
,,,Since fast food and processed food are often
…associated with convenience, it’s hard to let
…go of old eating (and buying) habits.
But you can still beat a lifetime of bad eating habits!
It can be challenging to develop new eating habits, but it’s not impossible at all. In fact, it is more difficult to keep unhealthy eating habits especially later in life when your body is already suffering from the effects of malnutrition from not eating healthily.
Remember: a person who has an unhealthy and unbalanced diet is also categorised as malnourished.
Why do you eat the way you do?
Your current eating habits are simply the result of years of repetition.
That’s why they’re called habits. We weren’t born with habits; we just develop them over time through repetition.
So if you learned to love French fries, ice cream, black forest gateau, soda, candy and chocolate shakes, you can learn NEW healthy eating habits ~ to love healthy, natural foods just as much!
And this is very achievable. Yes!
Are you ready for another positive change in your life?
In our post today, I am going to share with you 3 great ways that you can begin the transition to healthy eating. What’s really great about the transition itself is that it is gradual. And yes! ~ Healthy eating can be a load of fun!
You can start enjoying fantastic weight loss success by gradually changing the contents of your daily meals.
Let’s get started!
‘Healthy Eating Everyday’ Tip # 1:
Eat More Whole Grain
What is whole grain?
The Whole Grains Council defines “whole grain” as “food that contains all of the components of the grain seed in their original proportion.” A grain seed has three components: bran, endosperm and germ.
All three components provide a treasure trove of natural nutrients that provide the body with complete nutrition. The cooking method doesn’t matter as long as care is taken to preserve these three components.
Whole grains naturally provide the following nutrients in varying amounts:
Due to the density of nutrients found in whole grain, I recommend that you have one to two servings of whole grain per day.
The dietary fibre found in whole grains will also help conquer hunger pangs, as fiber expands when it comes into contact with water. Fibre will fill your stomach much faster and you will feel fuller more quickly.[/color-box]
What types of whole grain should you try?
…Three kinds of grains stand out in the world of fitness:
…brown rice, quinoa and millet.
…These three grain seeds are widely available and are
…crowd favourites because they’re tasty and easy to
.Quinoa is hailed as the next fitness superfood because of its exceptionally high levels of plant protein, which is useful for fitness enthusiasts who want to build lean muscle while slimming down.
You may also try grain seeds such as amaranth, rye, sorghum and barley if the first 3 types don’t appeal to you.
You can’t beat these grains as part of your healthy eating staples.
‘Healthy Eating Everyday’ Tip # 2:
Skip Oily Food
Why should you be mindful of fatty food?
Fats are essential for the body, but only in very small quantities. The amount of oil found in processed food and fast food is too much to maintain a healthy weight. I also have to warn you about “calorie traps” at home, like bacon strips and burger patties.
A single strip of bacon can have as many as 50 calories. If you eat 5 bacon strips at breakfast, you’ve already added 250 calories of energy to your reserve for the day.
If your physical activities for the day do not burn off most of the calories that you have consumed from the moment that you woke up, your weight will eventually increase. That’s why it’s essential that you identify high-calorie foods at home that do not provide a lot of nutritional value.
To keep your mealtimes interesting, opt for healthier alternatives such as egg whites and roasted veggies. Flavour-wise, vegetables have a lot of to offer. That’s why kebabs don’t taste like kebabs unless you add the roasted veggies!
