Eating is a pleasure and I enjoy eating. I want to eat and stay healthy. Nobody should be stopped from eating as long as the food is not detrimental to one’s body. Hence, it is important to know the art of healthy eating. Thus here, I would like to share some simple tips on healthy eating.
Needless to say, what we eat has a strong impact on our wellness or illness. Many illnesses or diseases like cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease and obesity arose because of our failure to recognize the importance of healthy eating. Even if we recognized, we failed to upkeep healthy eating.
Easy Healthy Eating Tips
Healthy eating requires discipline, consciousness and awareness. Do I have to deprive myself of food in order to stay discipline? Not at all. Discipline does not call for deprivation of food but rather management. Managing oneself of his/her habits of eating is the subject matter.
In fact, everything we do, need proper planning. Likewise, healthy eating. We have to plan what to eat, when is the best time to eat or not to eat and how do you eat to attain maximum benefits. Hence eating is a conscious activity. We don’t just grab anything reachable and flushed down our stomach.
In order to be conscious of what goes down our throat with maximum benefits, we need awareness. Therefore, knowledge is a crucial factor to bring awareness. How nutritious a food is, how should it be cooked or consumed so as not to lose its nutritional values, requires knowledge. ( Does nutrient intake affect your health)
In addition, eating in moderation is a good practice to achieve healthy eating as extravagance is disastrous to our health. In most cases, extravagance leads to illnesses or diseases. On top of eating in moderation, it is recommended to eat in small portion. But of course that small portion must be a source that contribute to balanced diet. Our body needs substantial nutrients and calories for our organs to function effectively. Lacking in nutrients and calories resulted in health disaster!
