5 great diet tips
Our quality of life is directly dependent on the state of our physical health. If our physical health is weak or troubled, it would affect us adversely and make it difficult for us to pursue our other aspirations. Physical health is central to our total well-being. Getting there is simple. We can be in good physical health by getting decent exercise, eating right and respecting our bodies. There are no secrets to this, no special pills or diets and no special plans, just plain common sense. Physical fitness need not be a battle and even if it feels like one, once you know the winning techniques and apply them, your success is certain.
However, as simple and easy as it maybe, it has somehow escaped many. These people who suffer from poor physical health find themselves needing to address their health issues. In their quest to get back on track, they usually find themselves needing to go back to the basics. Most will need to rekindle their natural senses and learn to listen to their bodies once again, perhaps this time with greater sensitivity.
In today’s global capitalism, where social trust has been severely eroded, they must also be careful not to be waylaid by unscrupulous merchants who are ever eager to profit from their plight and quest. Being led astray by these merchants may result in disillusion and possibly regress to a state where they would give up all hope and resign to live with their condition. Here are some simple pointers to avoid getting to such a state:
-Do not eat if you are not hungry and stop eating when you are full. Pay attention to your body so that you will know when you are hungry and need food and when you are full and need to reject all food offers despite the high temptation.
-Do not indulge just because there is food around. You can socialise without food and often a good conversation is better than a dozen food platters.
-Make it a point to consume at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Choose whole grains over processed one. Make it a point to use fresh ingredients and avoid processed foods and premixes. Also increase your consumption of foods that are rich in fiber. Learn to cook. It not only improves your quality of family life but more importantly breaks you free from being at the mercy of eating places, fast food joints and restaurants.
-Make it a point never to skip breakfast. If you are in a rush there are two solutions; make it a point to retire earlier in the night or make your preparations the night before. Prepare stuff that you can just take out of the refrigerator or grab off the kitchen counter. Fruits, muesli bars, sandwiches, bagel or buns are some ideas. You will gradually become more creative as you go along.
-Consume dinner at least 2-3 hours prior to you going to bed, and consume nothing after it. When you eat supper that’s too close to your bed time, it doesn’t give your body adequate time to digest its food, (the body decelerates when asleep) so all of that food is turning into fat.
There’s no mystery to slimming down: Counting calories and exercise. Don’t go on crash diets. In reality they will make you put on weight when you go back to your previous habits. Rather, consider how you would eat and how you would work out. If what you’re envisioning doesn’t seem like something you might be able do, week-in and week-out on a regular basis; then reconsider it and come up with something more attainable over the long and medium term run.
