6 Tips for a Healthy Diet

A healthy diet is one that provides the body with all the necessary and essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, proteins etc. The idea is to eat mostly foods that are derived from plants, focused more on the things your grow and get away from highly processed food. Here’s six ways you can keep your diet healthy:

Eat lots of fruits and vegetables

Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables are a very important part of our daily diet, and you should eat at least five servings of vegetable 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, nutrients 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, your 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 food full of fat and sugar can increase the level of your cholesterol 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 diary products (read the labels when you go shopping) use lean meat and trim any visible fat on the meat before cooking. Do not butter your sandwich 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 is very good in 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 prepare it in a highly hygienic way and in a non toxic way because fish can be highly poisonous if care is not taking in preparing it.

Eat starchy foods


Some people think that starchy foods are fattening but they don’t necessarily have to be; you just need to watch out for the added fats when cooking them. They contain fiber, calcium, iron, vitamins and of course starch. 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 the people who successfully lose weight tend to eat breakfast regularly; but keep in mind that your breakfast should consist of healthy items. Eggs are a good way to start your day because not only are they delicious and can be prepared in a number of ways, they also make you feel full even though you might not have eaten that much. To top it off, thanks to advances in agricultural science, eggs are very low in cholesterol these days.

Drink lots of water

Drink alot of water

We lose a lot of water from our bodies everyday and we need to replace it (by drinking lots of water) 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.

As long as you keep your daily consumption strictly by the rules, you will live a healthy life. And a healthy life is a happy life!
