13 Tips That Will Help You to Switch to Healthy Eating
Are you still trying to switch to healthy nutrition and haven't succeed? Check out these simple-to-follow steps for changing your eating habits.
1. Classical scheme of healthy eating
The first thing to remember is a clear standard scheme. It will help you to learn once and for all, what and when to eat during the day. So, in the classic understanding of healthy eating we should have 5 meals a day. Breakfast = complex carbohydrates and/or protein (oatmeal, a handful of berries or nuts, cereals without sugar, fruit smoothies, eggs, etc.). If you want to eat sweets, it's the best time to eat it during a breakfast and up to 12 p.m. The first snack = depending on the density of your breakfast, it can be a hanful of nuts, any fruit, some dried fruit, whole-grain bread with curd cheese, etc. Lunch = carbohydrates + protein + fiber. For example, buckwheat with roasted chicken + salad. Second snack = predominantly protein or carbohydrates. The main thing, as in the first snack, monitor the amount of servings. Snack should not be as big as dinner. Dinner = protein + fiber. The chicken / meat / beans / egg / cheese + salad. That's all! Very simple and working nutrition scheme.
2. Make a shopping list
As soon as possible go to grocery shop to refill your fridge with healthy products. But! We're slowly moving to proper nutrition, so be sure to prepare a shopping that includes poultry, fruits and vegetables of different colors, greens, cheese, whole grain bread, eggs.
3. Buy more greenery
In continuation to the previous tip - you should add a lot of greenery! It's not 2 feathers of green onion, but a full plate of different types of greenery. You will certainly understand the feeling of vitality and freshness that greens can give you.
4. Don't go to grocery store or restaurants hungry
Well, with this is a clear point. Each of us has failed healthy eating habits when due to hunger we bought or ordered too much excess and unwhealthy food.
5. Replace canned goods with frozen foods
Salted tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, canned pineapples - it's all delicious, but the amount of salt and preservatives production should make you change your mind. Instead of this it is better to put a pack of frozen green beans and vegetable mixture in your basket. Modern flash freezing is healthy and it saves vitamins from fruits and vegetables.
6. Stop eating semi-finnished products
Leave the packages with semi-finnished foods to someone else ;)
7. Avoid white bread
If you find it hard to imagine your dinner without bread, it is better to choose whole grain bread or unleavened lavash and similar things.
8. Switch to a natural sugar
Honey and fruits should replace candies and white sugar in tea.
9. Try to give-up street food
Hanging out with friends, of course, is not prohibited. However it is better not to eat in the cafe more often than once every 2 weeks. But even so, you can select a more useful and healthy food than ever before.
10. Buy small portions of unhealthy food (if you are not able to exclude it)
It's not easy to stop drinking beer with chips in one moment if you used to it. Therefore, in exceptional cases, once a month, you can afford chips, but the smallest pack.
11. Let healthy food to be in sight
Apples, bananas, cereal biscuits are useful things in the middle of a table! Do not hide them deep into refrigerator.
12. Do not count calories
If you think you have that healthy nutrtion is meticulous counting of calories and weighing each product, then you are wrong. The only thing to be concerned - is the amount of servings. Believe us, you will be full with a half plate of spaghetti, if you add to it a fresh vegetable salad.
13. Drink water
The standard advice, but a very important. Make sure that your body gets the right amount of pure liquid.
