Tips for Healthy and Balanced life style
We all are trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle. You may be trying to maintain your current weight, or want to lose a little, it’s important to not go to extremes.
Many people try fad diets which may work in the short term, but tend to disappoint after a few weeks or months – mostly because they don’t help you think about healthy ways to eat as part of your normal life. It is only when you incorporate the healthy way of thinking into every part of your lifestyle, that you can achieve the perfect good health.
There’s a healthier way to think about eating! Let us look at some practical tips for achieving it:
1. Watch your portion sizes. Most of our portion sizes are far larger than we really need.Try placing smaller amounts on your plate, or “fool” yourself by using a smaller plate. Then, after you’ve finished, wait 15 minutes before going back for more.
2. Eat smaller meals more often. Instead of thinking about three square meals a day, try adding a couple of snacks to your daily routine. By eating something that’s high in protein and fibre-rich carbohydrates every two to three hours, you’ll feel more satisfied and energized throughout your day. Try a piece of fruit and some cheese with whole grain crackers, or some bran cereal topped with yogurt and fruits.
