6 Tips for Healthy Eating
With so much
'diet advice' around today it is little wonder if you feel
somewhat confused. Whether you are wanting to lose weight,
maintain your weight or help your family eat more
healthfully....these six, simple ideas will help you to eat
1. Stay away
from the inside aisles
When you grocery
shop, fill up your trolley from the aisles around the
outside the perimeter of the store. This is where the fresh
fruit, vegetables and fresh foods are kept.
2. Eat small
yourself to get hungry. Keep your appetite in control with
smaller meals and healthy snacks in between.
3. Keep close to
Fresh is best and
generally much better for you than pre-packaged. For
example, a fresh potato baked in its jacket is more healthy
than pre-packaged "potato au gratin".
and use spices
Get used to
cooking with a wide variety of spices. It's possible to get
fabulous flavour with spices without adding high calorie
fats and oils.
5. Read "fat
free" labels carefully
Many "fat free"
items contain additional carbohydrates in the form of sugar
or fructose to compensate for reduced flavour and can do
more to add to your weight than the "full strength" product.
6. Use low fat
For adults, much
healthier as low fat dairy products have the nutrients
without the extra fat.
