How To Eat Right

Healthy eating is not about strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself
of the foods you love – it is however about feeling great, having moremeal energy, and stabilizing your mood. By using these simple tips, you can simplify your perspective on healthy eating in the most effective way possible and learn how to create a pleasing, varied, and healthy diet.

#1: Set yourself up for success:

  • To set yourself up for success, think about planning a healthy diet as a number of small, manageable steps instead of one big drastic change. If you approach the changes gradually and with commitment, you effectively improve the quality of you daily diet. Simplify your choices to include whole, fresh, colourful food, rather than counting calories. Start slow and gradually change your eating habits over time, focus on how you feel after eating, and recognize that every change no matter how small is significant. It is also important to think of adequate water and exercise as essential components to your lifestyle.

 

#2: Moderation is key

  • A key foundation for any healthy diet is moderation. Essentially, it means eating only as much food as your body requires, and feeling satisfied at the end of a meal, but not stuffed. Moderation involves a sense of balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat, fiber, vitamins, and minerals to sustain a healthy and fully functioning body.
  • The goal of healthy eating is to develop a diet that can be maintained for life, not just a few weeks or months, or until you reach your ideal weight. This means eating far less of the unhealthy foods such as refined sugar, or saturated fat, and replacing it with the healthy whole foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables. But it does not require eliminating the foods you love, as long as you maintain a sense of portion control and can resist over-indulgence.

#3: Along with what you eat, how you eat it is also important

Healthy eating involves more than the food on your plate – it is largely psychological. How you think about food is important. Healthy eating habits can be learned and it is important to slow down and think about food as nourishment instead of just something to satisfy hunger. It is important to: eat with others whenever possible to monitor and model healthy eating habits, take time to chew your food and enjoy mealtimes, listen to your body, don’t skip breakfast and consume smaller more frequent meals throughout the day, and also avoid eating at night time.
