It is very common to constantly hear about living a healthy lifestyle, but what does that really mean? We all know that a healthy person doesnt smoke, eats healthy, is at a healthy weight and exercises. Easy, isnt it?
Well yes and no. The real trick to a healthy lifestyle is to make small changes every day.
For example adding fruit to your cereal, having an extra glass of waterthese are but just a few ways you can start living a healthy lifestyle without any serious changes that would knock you out.
Here are a couple of tips on eating well, things that you can implement very easily in your regular, normal diet:
Eat more fruit. For example you can add it to your cereal and your salads
Add more vegetables. Add them wherever you can- say a tomato on your sandwich, add some peppers on your pizza (dont overdo the pizza though!), add some extra vegetables in your pasta sauce. You can keep pre-cut or canned & frozen vegetables ready for some quick snacks
Lighten your salad dressing. If you eat full-fat dressing, go instead with something lighter and youll automatically eat less calories, without drastically changing anything in your diet.
Drin low-fat or fat-free milk. Switch to skim milk or fat free yogurt
Substitute some foods with others. Go through your cabinets or fridge and select three foods that you eat pretty much every day. Have a pen and pad ready and write down the nutritional content. Now next time youre at the store, have that pad ready and check other three similar products that have lower-calories substitutes
By applying just a couple of small changes everyday, you will work on your diet without actually spending lot of money on selected pills or dieting programs. Or if you are working with a diet program, these tiny changes will radically enhance the quality of your diet and ease you into losing weight much faster than you otherwise would.
