attention to what you’re eating and fill your body with moderate amounts of
lean meat, loads of healthy veggies and fruits, and small amounts of healthy
whole grains and good fats, are you’re setting your body up to blast fat, fight
off disease, and stay strong for the long run.
You Can’t Argue The Facts!
Super Simple Pointers To Improve Your Eating Habits For Good
1. Start Right
– Eat A Healthy Breakfast!
Experts say it’s natural to think if you don’t eat in
the morning you’ll have room to eat more later in the day. However, numerous
studies show eating a high-protein, high fiber, complex carb breakfast,
increases your metabolism to burn more fat, and keeps you full longer, so
you’re less likely to eat unhealthy the rest of the day.
2. Put Your
Snacks In A Bowl
This may seem like a bit of a mental game and it probably
is, but when you put whatever you’re eating out of the box or bag you’ll eat
less overall. This makes perfect sense because most of the time we eat
3. Always Have
Frozen Fruits And Veggies
When you aren’t reliant on buying fresh fruits and
veggies all the time you’ll teach yourself to eat more. How many times have you
gone to add berries to your salad only to find they’re rotten? Frozen fruits
and veggies are flash frozen, which means all the vitamins and minerals are
sealed in, making them just as healthy as the fresh version.
WebMD recommends loading your plate with deep green
and colorful veggies first. This means you’re giving yourself loads of vitamins
and minerals and leaving less room for the junky stuff.
4. Say NO To
Juice, Pop, And Other Sugary Drinks
Juice, pop, energy drinks, and most other drinks are
loaded with sugar, very little nutrition, and tons of extra calories you just
don’t need. This interferes with getting the nutrients your body and mind
requires to stay healthy and interferes with weight loss. For instance, a
bottle of Gatorade has 150 calories 34 grams of sugar; neither of which are
good for you. Do yourself a favor and choose water or tea for your beverage of
choice to help you eat healthier.
5. Empty Out
Take the time to empty your fridge, cupboard, and secret
stashes of everything junky, including cookies, chips, ice cream, muffins,
cake, and candy. When the temptation is removed from within reach, you have
succeeded in half the battle.
6. Put Healthy
Snacks In Your Purse And Car
Having healthy snacks with you all the time will
decrease your chance of buying something from the vending machine or
drive-thru. That’s just asking for trouble!
7. Keep A
This is a pain in the rear but it works. When you
actually see what you are eating you’ll realize just how much food you are
scarfing down each day.
Jot it down in a workbook or just type it into your
phone. When you see it, you will believe it.
Attention To What You Eat
Livestrong eating specialists suggest turning off all
technical distractions when you eat so you can recognize what you are eating
and even tap into when you’re full. This means turn off the television, cell
phone, and the radio, so you can tune into your pallet.
Yourself To Un-Stuff
Your eating habits are all self-taught and one of them
is to overeat. It’s important to always pay attention to what you are eating
and stop when you’re full. Practice making a conscious effort to stop stuffing
your face even before your tummy says you’re full. It’s just the healthy thing
10. Cut Out Or
Minimize Processed Food

cutting out any food that’s packaged, boxed, bagged, or sitting on the grocery
shelf, you’re going to drastically cut the fat and calories that are going into
