Tips To Maintain A Healthy Diet

1. Knowledge is Power

Learning as much as you possibly can about why healthy foods are so good for you can help in motivating you to eat them more often, so healthy eating just becomes a habit. Start with the healthy foods that you like, and learn about all their amazing benefits.

Apples, for example, might seem pretty ordinary, but one medium apple gives you 14% of your daily intake of Vitamin C. About 85% of their weight is water, which contributes to your daily fluid intake. Fluids, along with the fiber that is plentiful in apples, help maintain a healthy colon and rids your body of toxins and waste in your system.

Apples are just the beginning – fresh fruits and vegetables are the best things you can add into your daily routine, for both exceptional health and weight loss.

2. Planning Healthy Snack & Meal Choices

Having a couple of snacks during the day is a helpful way to maintain energy levels and reduce the chances that you’ll overeat at mealtime. But if they aren’t properly planned, snacks can easily lead to unhealthy choices and add a lot of calories to your daily intake without you even realizing it.

For example, 100 grams of plain tortilla chips add nearly 500 calories, and 100 grams of milk chocolate add almost 550 calories. Both also have refined fats, salt, preservatives and other harmful ingredients in your body. If instead, you have an apple with a tablespoon of peanut butter as your snack, it’s a more reasonable 200 calories plus adds valuable nutrients to your body.

3. Don’t Restrict

So many diet plans focus your energy on avoiding, losing, reducing. Fad diets, always encourage you to restrict something, whether it’s calories, carbohydrates, protein, fat, or something else. There’s always some kind of restriction. And that leads to feeling deprived. And then to cravings and binges. Which leads to feeling bad about yourself. That’s not a healthy way to live, and it’s certainly not very fun.

Re-frame the mindset of restricting calories, by focusing on reducing calorie density. Eat foods that have a low calorie level of their volume. Things like cucumbers, celery, apples, pears, grapes, squash. When you focus on them, you aren't only redirect your energy to a positive upward cycle of nourishment rather than a negative downward spiral of cravings and guilt, but you also fill yourself up so that there’s not as much room for the junk you know you shouldn’t be eating.

Be aware of what your body needs and balance your diet accordingly. Take time to indulge in healthy snacking. Invent recipes with healthy ingredients and munch on them instead of junk food. Avoid restrictions, limit quantity instead. Reduce calorie density rather than calories. Eat cucumbers, celery, apples, pears, squash, etc., for their volume as they have a low calorie level.
