Here are some simple healthy eating tips that can have a dramatic effect on your weight and how you feel.
1. Ensure that you eat either lean poultry or pork each week.
Ensure that you eat either lean poultry or pork each week. You should usually have about 2 servings of either of these each week but eating more than this will not have any adverse effects on a person.
2. Include lean red meat in your meals each week
Include lean red meat in your meals each week. But if you are a vegetarian you will need to eat legumes and/or nuts on a daily basis instead. You can have at least 3 servings of these in a week and this is vital so that you can actually include other meats within your healthy eating plan. But if you do eat less than the recommended amount you may find that your intake of iron and zinc will be decreased so you may need to include supplements in to your healthy eating plan.
3. Eat at least one legume meal each week.
Eat at least one legume meal each week. This can be include tofu, baked beans, peas, or even vegetarian chili. This is great for those people who do not wish to eat red meat, who are vegetarians or who are trying to lower their cholesterol levels. For example a portion of beans on toast would be the equivalent of a red meat serving.
4. Eggs. These should be part of any weekly eating healthy plan.
Eggs. These should be part of any weekly eating healthy plan. These again can be used as a replacement in any meal you have for a serving of red meat.
Fish. Try to have between 1 and 2 servings of either fresh or tinned fish in your meals each week. By having at least 2 servings in your healthy eating plan each week you are helping to protect yourself from heart disease and possibly some forms of cancer.
6. Fruit and Vegetables.
Fruit and Vegetables. Ensure that you include at least 5 healthy servings of these each day as they are both high in fiber and nutrients. You can have fruit juice if you want as part of your healthy eating but they do not actually count as a full serving of fruit.
Incorporate these simple healthy eating tips into your diet and you may find that you are naturally losing weight without even dieting!
