Writer Justin Sedor suggests that it may be easier to follow healthy resolutions in a hospitable weather. Based on this he points out a few tiny tips that have an almost instant effect on the improvement of your healthy eating habits.
We know that sugar, the least healthy ingredient out there, is one of the determining ingredients when it comes to obesity and heart disease. Americans consume way above the normal quantities – about 22 teaspoons of sugar added in a day. That is the equivalent of 350 calories. The American Heart Association recommends for women to consume a maximum of six teaspoons – 100 calories and for men no more than nine teaspoons – 150 calories a day in order to decrease the risk of heart disease. However much of this added sugar comes from processed or packaged foods. Avoiding those foods which contain sugar listed as one of the main ingredients or any sugar substitutes, can lower the overall intake of sugar and have great benefit for your health.
Don’t go for chips if hunger strikes you between meals. A fruit or a vegetable is far better. You can eat a reasonable portion of fruit or vegetables by putting them in a bowl or a plate so you can see the quantity. Storing less healthy snacks out of sight or in places which are harder to reach might just help you fight your impulse to snack. Never go shopping on an empty stomach. This way you will not be tempted to purchase unhealthy snacks. Make a list of healthy products and stick to it, no matter what.
