Because of the society, many people believe healthy eating goes hand-in-hand with STRICT diet and thus is boring, flavourless and constraining. Why?
Forget about strict diet, below a clear idea of what healthy eating is and not :
Eating healthy helps control weight
FALSE. When it comes to losing weight, the only tried and true way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you consume each day. But don’t be discouraged, if you EAT HEALTHY FOODS, you will be eating foods that are healthier sources of calories and foods that contribute to a healthier body and body weight.
Eat in moderation
TRUE. A base of healthy eating is moderation (I didn’t say deprivation: moderation is simply the avoidance of excess). Consuming food your body DOES NOT need or want, such as excess sugar and fat is an example of excess.
*WHEAT’S TIP: use the 80/20 rule! 80% of the time eat healthy & unprocessed foods and the remaining 20% you can have less-healthy foods.
Drinking only diet soda
FALSE. Zero-calories soft drinks and diet coca claim to be weight-loss-friendly but, some studies denied this and suggesting they may lead to increased appetite, heart problem and weight gain.
Protein bars, my friends!
False. Don’t overly on them. Even if they are high-protein and low-sugar content, they are made through the use of artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols (bad for the health). Instead use homemade protein bites like Wheats’one (only 178 Kcal, 3 prt, 18 crb and 2 ft).
Finding your balance & allow variety
TRUE. Typical healthy balance includes vegetables, fruits, grains, dairy and none-dairy proteins. No need to eat them all at the same time every day, but you should include them in your daily meals. Eating a variety of foods coming from each food group will enable you to get a wide variety of nutrients and also helps prevent boredom.
Skipping meals, what a good idea!
FALSE. People think skipping meals will cut down the calorie intake. Missing meals, especially breakfast, deprives the body of essential nutrients witch brings poor concentration, irritability and others. Instead of skipping meals, we should be focusing on having small meals in order to avoid food obsession and always having a big glass of water before and after every meal!
Think about what you want to eat
TRUE. It’s important to eat what gives you pleasure. So, take your time to consider and evaluate your meal options. After that, you can easily choose what foods would best meet your needs and satisfy your hunger level.
So what does healthy eating go hand-in-hand with?
Enjoyment, feeling good, improving health, having more energy and, stabilising your mood!
