Top 5 Healthy Eating Habits

We always hear that “Old habits die hard”. However, bit by bit one can conquer bad eating habits and change their lifestyle and eating traditions. Here are five ways to get over you bad eating habits:

Never miss a meal: Skipping a meal will more likely cause more harm than good. Missing a meal depletes your body’s energy reserves and you end up craving quick fixes that pump you with major calories.

Keep track of what you eat: Part of many healthy eating habits programs insist on the importance of recording what you eat during a day. Keeping a record of what you eat not only helps you track you daily calorie intake but also helps you avoid any unhealthy eating habits.

Take Smaller Portions: Unhealthy eaters tend to eat until they feel that their stomach cannot take anymore. However, it is better to eat smaller portions slowly. This way you eat less and the food settles in your stomach nicely. In the end you eat less and still feel full.

Eat lots of fruits and Vegetables: Fruits and vegetables are a great source of nutrients, vitamins and dietary fiber and low in calories. Eating fruits keeps calories down yet giving you desired nutrition.

Indulge once in a while: healthy eating does not mean horrible eating. Once in a week bend the rules a little and enjoy a sweet, high calorie, spicy meal without going overboard.
