Healthy Diet Tips for 2016-Part 1

December 29th, 2015  |  The Blog

The New Year is upon us, so now is the time to start eating healthy, if you do not already do so. This is not to say that everyone needs to start a diet on January 1st. It says that eating healthy is the first step towards good health and potential weight loss along the way.

The easiest way to start eating healthy is to remove the temptations from your home; clean out the fridge, the cabinets and the pantry of all the hidden goodies and sweets. If there isn’t any junk in the house, it can’t be eaten. That is step number one. Now, adapt a few of the suggestions below to start eating healthy.

Basic Tricks to Eating Healthy

Do not drink fruit juice; eat whole, fresh fruit instead.

Fruit juice has a lot of calories and very little fiber. Fresh fruit, on the other hand has fewer calories and a lot of good, healthy fiber. Fresh berries on top of cereal or mixed in with yogurt is a good way to incorporate fresh fruit into your diet.

Use lower fat dairy products.

Dairy products contain saturated fat. It is important to reduce saturated fat intake anywhere possible in your daily diet. Whole milk has 3.5% fat, which adds a lot to your daily intake. Alternate choices include 1% low-fat milk and fat free milk. Other dairy products like yogurt, cottage cheese and some other cheeses are available in reduced fat choices, as well. The more you can lower your overall dietary fat content, the better.

Oatmeal is healthy

Oatmeal has an abundance of fiber and is 100% whole grain. It works to lower LDL or bad cholesterol. Adding fresh berries or dried fruit and nuts to oatmeal adds flavor and good nutrients to breakfast.

Eat Whole-Grain Bread

Reduce unhealthy belly fat by eating more whole-grains. The product packaging should say, 100% Whole Grain, not whole wheat, multi-grain or stone-ground. The latter three choices are not true whole-grain products. It is important to carefully read labels.

Don’t Use High-Fat or High Calorie Spreads

Forget about spreads like mayonnaise and butter on a sandwich. They add saturated fat and unnecessary calories to a sandwich. Instead, use fresh, juicy veggies to add moisture to a sandwich or switch to using mustard. Just look at this and it will help you decide to make the switch:

  • One slice of tomato has 4 calories and no fat
  • One tablespoon of mustard has 10 calories and no fat
  • One tablespoon of mayonnaise has 100 calories and 1.5 grams of saturated fat
  • One tablespoon of butter has 102 calories and 7.3 grams of saturated fat

    A political strategist’s lifetime must be torn between plotting tactics that were bad and needing to drink from a cupp and snuggle into their
    mothers breast. I coul not envision what torment it is to have to live in conflict daily.
    On one hand you have to fight like a wolf and youu must some howw attempt to find
    a way to be grounded and individual again. This habit is too much for
    some, and then you either move oon to a different career or give
    up collectively, should youn’t have the grit for extreme anxiety.
    The same holds for news websiites who essentially play with the role of
    a strategist, the one difference is tat they have to portray an illusion of non-bias reporting rather than being
    open about their under handewd tactics.

    You’ve got videos and they have been uploaded by you yet no one views your
    videos. What is the problem and why is no 1 visiting your
    own videos? You require to learn how to get your video in front
    of people, or else there is no point to investing time.
    If you use a service like Film Craze, you can share your video and get
    views to your own video. Film Craze is the
    best friend of an independent film maker!

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to
    another platform. I have heard very good things about
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but
    I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks

  • said on August 23rd, 2017 at 8:10 am

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied
    on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you
    could be giving us something informative to read?
