Good Eating Habits

1. Prepare more of your own meals: Cooking more meals at home can help you take charge of what you’re eating and better monitor exactly what goes into your food. You’ll eat fewer calories and avoid the chemical additives, added sugar, and unhealthy fats of packaged foods.
2. Make the right changes: When cutting back on unhealthy foods in your diet, it’s important to replace them with healthy alternatives. Replacing dangerous Trans fats with healthy fats (such as switching fried chicken for grilled salmon) will make a positive difference to your health.
3. Read the labels: It’s important to be aware of what’s in your food as manufacturers often hide large amounts of sugar or unhealthy fats in packaged food, even food claiming to be healthy.
4. Focus on how you feel after eating: This will help foster healthy new habits and tastes. The healthier the food you eat, the better you’ll feel after a meal.
5. Drink plenty of water: Water helps flush our systems of waste products and toxins, yet many of us go through life dehydrated—causing tiredness, low energy, and headaches. It’s common to mistake thirst for hunger, so staying well hydrated will also help you make healthier food choices.

6. Try not to think of certain foods as “off-limits.”: When you ban certain foods, it’s natural to want those foods more, and then feel like a failure if you give in to temptation.
7. Think smaller portions: Your serving of meat, fish, or chicken should be smaller size.of cards and half a cup of mashed potato, rice, or pasta. By serving your meals on smaller plates or in bowls, you can trick your brain into thinking it’s a larger portion.

8. Take your time: It’s important to slow down and think about food as nourishment rather than just something to gulp down in between meetings or on the way to pick up the kids. It actually takes a few minutes for your brain to tell your body that it has had enough food, so eat slowly and stop eating before you feel full.
9. Eat with others whenever possible: Eating alone, especially in front of the TV or computer, often leads to mindless overeating.
10. Limit snack foods in the home: Be careful about the foods you keep at hand. It’s more challenging to eat in moderation if you have unhealthy snacks and treats at the ready. Instead, surround yourself with healthy choices and when you’re ready to reward yourself with a special treat, go out and get it then.
11. Eat breakfast, and eat smaller meals throughout the day: A healthy breakfast can jumpstart your metabolism, while eating small, healthy meals keeps your energy up all day.
12. Avoid eating late at night: Try to eat dinner earlier and fast for 14-16 hours until breakfast the next morning. Add more fruit and vegetables to your diet. Fruit and vegetables are low in calories and nutrient dense, which means they are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber.
13. Liven up salad greens: Branch out beyond lettuce. Kale, arugula, spinach, mustard greens, broccoli, and Chinese cabbage are all packed with nutrients. To add flavor to your salad greens, try drizzling with olive oil, adding a spicy dressing, or sprinkling with almond slices, chickpeas, a little bacon, parmesan, or goat cheese.
14. Satisfy your sweet tooth: Naturally sweet vegetables—such as carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, yams, onions, bell peppers, and squash—add sweetness to your meals and reduce your cravings for added sugar. Add them to soups, stews, or pasta sauces for a satisfying sweet kick.
15.Cook green beans, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and asparagus in new ways: Instead of boiling or steaming these healthy sides, try grilling, roasting, or pan frying them with chili flakes, garlic, shallots, mushrooms, or onion. Or marinate in tangy lemon or lime before cooking.
