Change Your Diet With These 5 Tips

There’s an old adage that says “old habits die hard”. I’m sure we can all agree on this. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s entirely impossible to change old, bad habits. No matter how bad your diet is right now, there are actually steps you could take to improve the way you eat. Here are 5 tips to help you change your diet for the better:

1. Add an extra vegetable to your next meal

It doesn’t really matter if your next meal is breakfast, lunch or dinner; you can improve your diet immediately by adding an extra vegetable to your meal. Make sure to pick a one that is green or brightly colored in order to benefit from the full nutritional advantages of vegetables.

You could steam some broccoli to go with your sandwich or fish burger at lunch, add spinach to your scrambled eggs for breakfast, or even add it to your early morning smoothie. Instead of having a heavy meal for dinner, you could simply eat a bigger salad with lots of green vegetables.

2. Eat Fresh Fruits

Next time you’re thinking of an appetizer or snack to eat, grab an apple or pear instead of a cookie, cake or other baked goods. Fruits are also the best for desserts. The beautiful thing about fresh fruits is that you could actually eat them in several different ways.

For instance if you were a yogurt or ice cream lover, you could simply reduce the quantity you’re used to having, and replace it with fresh fruits like strawberries, blueberries or sliced apples. You could also make a fruit smoothie or fruit salad, with fresh milk or yogurt.

3. Drink more water

Drinking water will help you lose weight by helping you flush out the excess calories from the sugar and fat consumed in your diet. Water also helps make sure your metabolism keeps running efficiently. You could also add some lime, lemon, cucumber and ginger to your water, for the purpose of detoxification.

4. Make your next grain a whole grain

Whole Grains
Whole grains are higher in fiber than the regular refined grains that most people eat. Fiber is essential for health, and weight loss in particular. It also helps you keep full for a longer period, thereby dealing with unhealthy cravings. Try eating whole grain breads and instead of having your regular morning cereals, try having oatmeal instead; also, you might choose brown rice or whole wheat pasta over regular white rice and pasta.

5. Pay attention to portion size

There’s always a tendency of you loading up a bigger portion of food than you need on your plate, especially when you’re feeling really hungry. So the next time you’re dishing out food for yourself, or ordering something at a restaurant, take a minute to think about how much you’re eating.

As much as possible, try to make sure that the total carb content of your meals is not up to 1 quarter of your plate. Your protein source should take up another quarter, the other 2 quarters (half of the plate) should reserved for fruits or/and vegetables.


Take these 5 simple steps and before you know it, your old, bad eating habits will begin to change for the good, and you’ll start losing weight.
