Changing your eating habits is not following a diet. It is listening to your body and eat the right foods. It should be eating the way you supposed to eat before you got into a busy life without thinking about the consequence that the busy life will bring to your life.
Here I’m going to share with you a good and easy way to change your eating habits to healthier ones; habits that will help you lose weight and feel better.
Make sure you make time to eat real food and seek out the best foods for your body. Remember that a machine will only perform as well as the fuel it takes in. So if you want your body to burn fat efficiently, you must feed it the good food, which as you probably know mean whole foods, as fresh and organic as you can find.
Here’s a useful schedule to follow in your new, improved diet:
Eat breakfast within a half an hour of waking up. By doing this, hunger will not take you off guard; you will have made a healthy choice if you eat before you leave the house. I recommend grains such as old-fashioned oatmeal made with water, raisins, banana, and perhaps some honey, but don’t add refined sugar. You could also make yourself a smoothie with fruits and veggies or have a bowl of fruit with kefir. Find other good breakfast ideas and put them into practice.
Eat a fruit thee hours after breakfast to keep your hunger distracted until your lunch.
To make lunch preparation easier, eating the dinner leftovers from the night before.
Four hours after lunch, eat a piece of fruit or a fist full of nuts.
Eat your dinner when you are ready. Since eating meals high in veggies promotes weight loss, I recommend you create lunches and dinners with 60%-70% vegetables, 20%-30% grains, and 10%-20% animal products. If you don’t eat animal products, even better, don’t you worry about adding it.
I recommend you drink only water during the day, except for morning tea. Remember to avoid sugar, and of course avoid those artificial, “food product” non-dairy creamers. They are all sugar and fatty emulsifiers.
Give yourself the opportunity to eat healthy for a couple of weeks, and you’ll find yourself losing fat and enjoying many other positive benefits. After you see such positive results, it will be difficult to go back to the old bad habits.
