Healthy Living by Healthy Eating
No single weight loss method, or eating program can work for everyone, one size dies not fit all. The ultimate goal should be long term health through healthy eating and exercise.
In order to lose weight and keep it off, exercise is a key element, as it AIDS in increasing the metabolic rate, which helps fat loss while maintaining lean muscle.
Fiber is important for weight loss, as it improves digestive health, and makes you feel full, while keeping blood sugar stable. There are two types soluble and insoluble. Soluble lowers cholesterol and insoluble promotes bowel regularity.
Some soluble sources are: apples, bananas, broccoli, flax seeds, oranges, and sweet potatoes. Some insoluble sources are: celery, wheat bran, prunes, and spinach. Here is where water, nature’s natural fat burner, detoxifier/ cleanser and purifier plays an important part. Drinking half your body weight in ounce daily will meet you fit, full, and your skin will glow.
Good food helps the cells in the body communicate with each other. The right diet can also repair the damage that fad, and crash diets have placed on the body. It is important to eat a balanced diet, but more importantly portion control has to be used, with small meals consumed frequently throughout the day.
Another important factor in winning the battle of the bulge, “Television”, yes the boob tube! Turn it off, choose music, something soft, soothing to enjoy your meal, make it family catch up time, reconnect with your children, spouse, and get the whole house healthy. You’ll be glad you did!
In healthy eating choose fresh fruits and vegetables over canned as much as possible. Plan meals and never stop for grocers hungry.
Read labels and if you can’t pronounce it, you don’t want to eat it!
