Rules to eat healthy throughout your life

1 EAT WHEN HUNGRY

Are you of the habit of munching snacks as a background activity as you do some work? Or do you have a fixed time for having your food? In their fast-paced, busy lifestyle, people have started considering eating as something they do on the side while they do something else. Munching snacks while watching the TV shows or having lunches while you are over the laptop sound familiar, right? It means we have forgotten what it is to really experience hunger. Instead, we eat much before we are really hungry, much before our body wants it. Experts say that it is better to have food when you are hungry, to have a healthy lifestyle.

2 CHOOSE WATER OVER ANY OTHER BEVERAGE

Water have amazing benefits that most of us doesn’t know. It is the best beverage we can have. Water has no calories and no sugar. Just reducing the intake of sweetened beverages like colas, packaged fruit juices etc can help people to reduce lots of excess fat and weight. Switching from sweetened beverages to water can also cut down the dangers of too much sugar consumption, insulin resistance and diabetes etc.

3 LET VEGETABLES PLAY THE LEAD ROLE

Make vegetables consume the major portion of your diet. Green leafy vegetables can do most amazing benefits to your body. Try out new recipes and prepare beautiful salads and vegetable dishes, mix and match various colours and textures and explore and love the world of vegetables.

4 HAVE FOODS CLOSEST TO THEIR NATURAL FORM

Eat food which are closest to their natural form. Avoid processed food. Choose a whole grain over processed cereal. Go for real fruit and plain yogurt instead of processed fruit yogurt. Choose real chicken over packaged chicken sausage and so on.

5 PORTION CONTROL

By adding labels on  foods as fat-free, sugar-free, low-calorie etc. the food industry has made us believe that if it is labelled healthy, it can be eaten in abundance. But the fact is that even the so called healthy foods can add up your calorie intake and weight when eaten in a large quantity. So, reduce or control your portion intake.
