Being able to maintain a healthy lifestyle, perfect weight and size is not as difficult as it seems bearing in mind that weight and size is relative to age, height, genes and body composition. For people who are conscious of gaining too much weight or on a weight loss journey, it doesn’t have to boil down to skipping meals as it is bad for your health and can lead to ulcers ranging from mild to chronic ulcers and can also lead to severe hunger which in turn increases your hunger which increases your food consumption and cravings.
Here are five main tips to guide you in maintaining a healthy lifestyle;
1. Eating a variety of foods, regularly, and in the right amounts is the best formula for a healthy diet. Even when on a diet you still shouldn’t skip meals. Skipping meals, especially breakfast, can lead to out-of-control hunger, which can lead to helpless overeating.
2. Paying attention to portion size will help not to consume too much calories, and will allow you eat all the foods you enjoy, without having to eliminate any.
3. Choose foods that are low in saturated fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars. Avoid sodas and sugar-enhanced drinks because of the excessive calories in the sodas and sugar drinks; diet drinks may not be a good choice as they make some people hungrier and increase food consumption.
4. Excess body fat comes from eating more than we need and can come from any caloric nutrient – protein, fat, carbohydrate, or alcohol so avoid them.
