Embarking on the journey of a fitness diet is exactly that, a journey. Changing your lifestyle to embrace healthy everyday living is a commitment, see 3 day refresh program, and you need to make sure you are doing it for the right reasons so it is really going to work for you. If you are looking for a crash course to perfecting your bikini body or getting rid of those bingo wings, then you won’t be in the right mind set to reach your goal. Healthy eating is about energizing your body, so you can feel great, work hard, play harder and look great at the same time. It is definitely not about reaching unrealistic weight goals, starving yourself or depriving yourself of the foods you enjoy.
Cook your own meals
This may sound silly but it’s amazing how much of a difference you will see when you chuck out those ready meals and start from scratch. By preparing all of your own meals you know exactly what is going into them and therefore you can monitor the ingredients and keep high fats and sugars low.
Replace don’t remove
It’s all well and good to chuck the entire contents of your treat cupboard into the bin, but you will inevitably be left craving a chocolate bar more than you ever have before. The important thing to do is to replace all of your unhealthy foods with healthy alternatives, e.g. swap your chocolate bar for some honey sweetened granola, and swap butter for olive oil.
Think food not calories
Instead of counting calories all day long, really focus on the food you’re eating. Try and incorporate as many different foods into your diet as possible, fill your plate with colour and texture, and get rid of the pre-packaged processed foods in favour of fresh ingredients.
Read the labels
Sometimes the foods that look the healthiest actually harbour some dangerous hidden sugars and fats. Make sure you read the labels to ensure that you’re not ruining your healthy eating plan with an ill-considered breakfast bar.
Drink more water
Not only is water good for pretty much everything by hydrating our bodies and flushing out toxins, but the craving for water is often mistaken for hunger. If you are sitting at your desk looking at the vending machine at 3pm thinking how much you could murder a snack, just think when was the last time you had a glass of water, it was probably a long time ago been as water doesn’t contain caffeine. Grab a cup of H2O instead of the snack and just sit back and feel the huger dissipate.
So, there some tips to help you to eat healthily daily so you can rest easy knowing that your body is strong, healthy and happy.
