Everyone knows that we have to eat healthily in order to
stay healthy. Yet many people find it hard to do so. It
doesn't help that there are so many diet plans out there,
each one purporting to be 'the one true diet' for you. One
useful way to get you into the habit of eating healthily
is by applying a few principles to the way you eat. I've
outlined 7 of them below.
I. Eat small portions of food for each meal.
II. Eat frequently. Most adults get hungry about 4 hours
after their last meal.
Aim to eat at least 5 small sized meals each day. This
keeps your metabolic rate high, thus helping you lose
weight easily, naturally and healthily.
III. Eat foods that you enjoy eating, making sure that each
meal contains all the essential nutrients (protein,
carbohydrates, fats, minerals and vitamins).
IV. Eat only when youíre hungry.
V. Stop eating as soon as you feel full: practice pushing
away your plate with food still on it when youíve had enough.
Donít aim to wipe the plate clean, and donít eat until you
feel stuffed. Eat until youíre comfortably satisfied.
VI. Drink a lot of water. Scientists recommend that we
drink roughly 8 (250mls) glasses of water each day.
Water helps you stay full, and if youíre eating only when
youíre hungry, it means youíll eat less without feeling
like youíre depriving yourself. It also helps you flush
out toxins from your body which otherwise could interfere
with your bodyís normal metabolism.
VII. Eating should be a pleasure, not a pain. For any food
plan to work, it has to be practical, enjoyable, flexible
and nutritious. Any plan that's based on depriving you of
some food or other is almost certainly doomed to fail in the
Try incorporating the above tips into the way you eat.
Start with one of them, practice it for a week (or until
you're used to it), then start on another one.
If you make changes in small steps, you won't be overwhelmed
and easily discouraged by your progress.
So make a small change each time; celebrate (or reward
yourself) for each success, no matter how small you think
Remember, every baby step is bringing you closer to your
desired goal of being a healthy eater.
With persistence, you will find that eating healthily is
not only possible, but it's fun.
So go for it!
