Eat Healthy To Become The You That You Deserve To Be

There was a point in time when eating right was much easier that it is today. A day when we were not tempted by toxic foods on every corner and lining every shelf at your local grocery store. A time when you didn't have to find a specialty farmers market in order to find quality produce. And even a time when everyone could afford to eat healthily, where it wasn't just the processed junk foods that were affordable on a tight budget. If we do not start to eat healthy now, the obesity epidemic will get significantly worse as they days go by.

Rather than think about how difficult or expensive it is to eat right, you simply start replacing the food in your pantry one meal at a time. Once you have gotten yourself into the habit of eating oats rather than cereal - as an example - for breakfast, move on to the next meal or snack. If you spend a couple days on each meal or snack, you will find that are eating a well-balanced diet within a week or so.

You want to focus on eating three well-balanced meals along with 2-3 smaller snacks throughout the day. Pay attention to the portion sizes that you are eating. When you start eating the right foods, you will find that your body naturally strops craving junk food and is actually fuller quicker. You need to listen to your body and let it tell you what it needs. This is very important. Don't train your body to overeat the healthy foods too.

Yes, even if you are eating healthy foods, you can still overeat, gain weight, and be unhealthy and fit. Too much of anything, even a good thing, is not good. Therefore, portions are very important. Today's society focuses on portions nearly triple what a true portion size should be. Depending what you are eating, a portion shouldn't be more than a cup. For a rule of thumb, make sure no portion is larger than your fist.

The second part of this is to stop eating when you are full. If you eat past the point that you are full you actually begin to stretch your stomach. The longer you do this, the more food you will need to become full; yes, even with healthy foods. Stay away from processed foods; stick with the more natural foods on the outer aisles of your grocery store. These foods contain all the nutrients your body needs to thrive. So, remember to eat small portions, eat frequently (every few hours) and stop when you're full. Before you know it, you will begin to shed the pounds and your confidence level will begin to rise. In no time at all you will feel like a new person all because you moved to a healthy eating plan.
