6 Tips for a Healthy Diet

A healthy diet is one that provides the body with all the necessary and essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and calories that it needs to support it’s processes. The basic idea is to eat mostly natural foods and stay away from highly processed food. Read on to see more in-depth tips for a healthy diet:

fruits and vege

Eat lot’s of Fruits and Vegetables

You should eat at least five servings of vegetables and two servings of fruits everyday and there are many ways to prepare/cook and serve them. A lot of vitamins and minerals can be found in fruits and vegetables, that will help you live a healthy life. A daily intake of fruits and veggies can help you get rid of obesity, lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as cure diseases like type 2 diabetes, stroke, some forms of cancer and heart diseases (scientifically proven).

Cut Down on Saturated fat and Sugar

Eating foods full of fat and sugar can increase your cholesterol levels and can cause heart diseases. Cut down on the pies, cakes and burgers if you don’t want to end up with heart complications that can be a potential risk to your life. To make sure that your food is free from fats and sugar, choose low fat foods (read the labels), and be sure to trim any visible fat on your meat before cooking. Do not butter your sandwiches and make sure to grill, poach or roast your meat instead of deep frying it.

Eat More Fish

What’s a healthy diet without fish? Especially oily fish which contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are very good at helping to keep your heart healthy. Steamed fished or grilled fish is a lot healthier than fried fish though. A healthy diet should contain at least two portions of fish every week but make sure to maintain high standards of culinary hygiene because fish can be dangerous if improperly prepared.

Eat Starchy Foods

Some people think that starchy foods are fattening but they don’t necessarily have to be; just watch out for the added fats when cooking them. Potatoes, wholegrain breads, cereal and rice are all sources of starch and fiber (which is good for your system because it helps food move more easily through the gut and prevents constipation).

Don’t Skip Breakfast

Research has shown that eating breakfast regularly is important for weight loss, but keep in mind that your breakfast should consist of healthy foods. Eggs are a good way to start your day because they give you this feeling of fullness while you might have actually eaten less, and they are very low in cholesterol these days. You are also likely to feel more energetic throughout the day on the mornings when you have breakfast, compared to how moody you can get if you go about your day on an empty stomach.

Drink Lot’s of Water

We lose a lot of water from our bodies everyday and we need to replace the water that is lost by drinking lots more, because water is a form of nutrient that the body needs to carry out it’s daily activities. The more water you drink, the more energy your muscles gain, the healthier your skin looks and the better your kidneys function.

A healthy diet is one that provides the body with all the necessary and essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, proteins etc. As said before, the basic idea is to eat foods that are as natural as possible, and avoid highly processed foods.
