How to eat healthily, stay slim or lose weight
Whether you want to stay healthy, lose or maintain your weight, get more energy or for another reason, then eating healthily and exercising are very important. We all know what to do in theory, but how many of us do it in practice?
Grandmothers and mothers always tell us that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, well theyíre right. If you eat a healthy, filling, breakfast, then it will set you up for the day.
Hereís some information about eating healthy breakfasts:
If you eat a nutritious breakfast, then this will give you enough energy for the whole day.
If you start off by skipping breakfast then you may be hungry during the day and consequently eat more.
If you skip breakfast you may have vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
If you skip breakfast, you may not have enough energy to do your work.
If you skip breakfast, you may be heavier and unhealthier than those who donít.
You donít have to have a huge breakfast, just eat something to give you some energy for the first part of the day.
If youíre in a hurry, then eat your breakfast on the road (not when driving of course) or in the office while checking your emails. Try fruit, yogurt, muesli, a smoothie, a healthy, lean sandwich. Drink a cup of herbal tea or juice.
When we think of snacks, we often think of unhealthy food like crisps or sweets. This is snacking at its worst. If you want to eat healthy, stay slim or lose weight, then you need to eat healthy snacks. Eating a mid morning and mid afternoon snack also means that your blood sugar level doesnít drop drastically and so you donít start craving sugar, or at least shouldnít. Diabetics have to snack to keep their blood sugar levels steady.
Good things to eat include
Fruit, low GI, such as a pear, apple or berries
Low calorie muesli bars
A small glass of juice
Raw veg sticks, such as carrots and celery
Low fat dips and veg sticks or rice cakes
Low fat or diet yogurt
Nutritious Lunch Ideas
Many of us are used to eating our lunch at our desks or running between meetings. Of course this isnít good, as we tend to wolf our food down, instead of digesting it slowly and enjoying it, under these situations. This can lead to weight gain, amongst other things, as the food isnít digested properly. But, alas, thatís modern life. So if you lunch on the move try
Wholemeal sandwiches or bagels with lean meat, fish or soya protein
A piece of fruit with low GI
A healthy soup. But avoid white bread
A low fat yogurt
If you have time for a full meal, then either prepare it the night before, so save time in the morning, or buy something on the way.
A healthy salad, with lean meat, fish or pulses. Have a look at the healthy choices in the supermarket, if short on time. Or go to the canteen or a cafť.
