Tips For Healthy Eating

Healthy eating is a way of balancing the food you

eat to keep your body in great health. With healthy

eating, you'll have energy all day, get the vitamins

and minerals you need, stay strong for activities

you enjoy, and maintain a healthy weight.

Below, you'll find tips designed to help you with

healthy eating.

1. Don't skip any meals

Eating 3 meals with snacks in between is the ideal

way to maintain both energy and a healthy weight.

When you skip meals and get hungry, you're more

than likely to choose foods that aren't very good

for you.

If you are eating away from home, take food with

you or know where you can buy healthy food from.

2. Learn about how to prepare foods

Instead of deep frying, try grilling, stir frying,

microwaving, baking, and even boiling. You should

also try fresh or even dried herbs and spices to

add flavor to your food. Before you eat any type

of meat, be sure to trim the fat and skin off of

it.

3. Avoid a lot of sugar

Drinks that contain sugar are a major source of

empty energy. What this means, is that the drinks

contain a lot of energy that your body may not

need, and it doesn't contain any vitamins or

minerals. If you plan to drink sugary drinks,

don't go overboard - limit yourself to 1 a day.

4. Avoid thinking about diets

There are no good food nor any bad foods. All

food can be a part of a healthy diet, when eaten

in moderation. You don't need to buy any low

carb, fat free, or even diet foods, as these foods

normally have lots of other added ingredients

to replaces the carbohydrates or fat.
