Eat More, Diet Less to Create Healthy Habits
There’s a new four letter word that we refuse to use around here… it’s one of those words that makes you cringe when you hear it spoken out loud. And it is shocking when you hear someone too young to be using such a word just blurt it out nonchalantly. What is the word? DIET.
That’s right. Dieting is so 1980. So, why are women still torturing themselves with unnatural diets to lose weight? Instead, we are creating healthy eating habits that last a lifetime, enabling us to ditch dieting for good!
Eating Less – A Common Misconception
A common fallacy for healthy eating habits is that you need to simply stop eating to lose weight. That is terrible advice and could be potentially hazardous to your health. It would actually bode well to eat more meals rather than fewer.
Instead of eating two or three huge meals each day, one should try to fit in six or seven smaller meals that serve a purpose. Balance your diet with proper quantities of fruits, vegetables, and protein. Have a banana and oatmeal in the morning, a salad for lunch, and some grilled fish or chicken for dinner. These items are not expensive, healthy, and they still taste great.
What this means is that one should consume less calories overall by making better food choices. Also, staying away from foods that significantly raise your blood sugar will be beneficial in the long run. By following these tips, and exercising 2-4 times a week, you will hopefully become a much healthier person.
