Healthy Eating Tips

Healthy eating tips help you stay mindful of the food you’re putting into your body.

People think about it, and yes, it’s in the back of everyone’s mind, but for you, it’s time to put it at the forefront of your thinking and make some changes if you are to lose weight, burn belly fat, and get in shape. You can’t do any of those great things without healthy eating.

Now, this doesn’t need to be complicated with you studying the nutrition values of every food for hours on end. Keep it simple. Small changes will have a great effect on the end game.

If you’re the type of person who doesn’t have time to think about food, then have your food delivered by a meal replacement program (although I don’t personally recommend any food that is pre-cooked with tons of artificial chemicals and flavors, then packaged so you can eat it WEEKS later). If you like to cook and make your own food, check out these free diet menus.

Healthy Eating Tips
First thing you need to do is…

Make healthy eating a habit with gradual changes. Within 21-30 days, those changes should be habitual. Here are some gradual changes you can make and healthier substitutions:

Healthy Eating Tips:
• Use mustard instead of mayo on your sandwiches. You’ll get lots of flavor with much fewer calories and fat.

• Stop buying white bread. Only buy whole wheat made with whole grains. Don’t even get me started on that evil white flour!

• White flour is bad, but white meat is good. Eat white meat turkey or chicken, which is lower in fat than dark meat, red meat and pork. Animal fat is the number one dietary source of unhealthy saturated fat.

• Start using lean ground beef, pork tenderloin or fish instead of high-fat cuts of meat.

• Change your cooking methods. Bake, grill or broil your meals instead of frying. Use non-stick sprays—or better yet, non-stick pans—instead of oil.

• Drink more water. Slowly reduce the amount of soda you drink and replace it with herbal tea or water. Aim for eight cups of pure water each day.

• Don’t drink your calories. Eat a whole orange instead of drinking a glass of juice, for example. Real food is usually more filling and more nutritious than juices, fruit drinks, and other high-calorie beverages.

• Serve sauces and dressings on the side. Dip your fork into the sauce, then dip your fork into the food. You’ll still have the flavor but with fewer calories.

• Gradually switch to skim milk. Milk commonly comes in four varieties: whole (4% fat), 2%, 1% and skim (0% fat). Gradually wean yourself from the higher-fat varieties to the lower fat milk every two weeks. For example: continue drinking your normal 2% milk for two weeks, then move to 1% for two weeks, and then your palate will be ready for the consistency of skim milk.

• Switch from full-fat cheeses to reduced-fat or fat-free cheeses the same way you would with milk (see tip above).

• Order vegetables on the side instead of fries. Flavor them with lemon juice or herbs instead of butter.

• Snack on fruit and nuts instead of sugary treats. The fiber, protein and healthy fats in this combo will sustain you to your next meal and you won’t have the energy slump that comes after eating candy.

• Reduce your portion size. Most people will eat whatever amount of food is in front of them, so start putting your meals on smaller plates. You will be just as satisfied because your mind “sees” that you’re eating a full plate of food.

More Healthy Eating Tips:

If you can’t stand the taste of broccoli, then vowing to eat it more often is pretty unrealistic. But if increasing the number of vegetables you eat each day is one of your goals, start by finding a few different ones that you can painlessly work into your diet. Make sure you select a variety of colors (dark green, red, orange, etc.) to get the most nutrients per bite. Add some shredded carrots to your muffin batter or top your pizza with fresh tomatoes, for example.

If you know you need to eat more fruit, start by adding some sliced bananas to your cereal in the morning or bake an apple with a bit of brown sugar for a yummy, low-cal dessert. Fresh berries and yogurt make a nice, light breakfast or snack too.

As you adopt this new style of eating, you will find that your food preferences will gradually change—when you cut out high-sugar, high-fat goodies, your cravings will actually go away in time. Your body wants healthy food! Hope these healthy eating tips helped you on your way to burn belly fat and get healthy overall.
