A long-term approach to eating consciously is to understand that there are two forms of eating: planned and unplanned. You should try to make most of your meals fit into the “planned” category. However, sometimes there will be meals out and treats that will fall into the unplanned category. The trick is to try to reduce those occurrences.
The kickback is a great buttocks toner. Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart with your weight even distributed. Raise one knee and extend your leg straight out behind you. Try to keep your back straight during this motion. Repeat 15 times and do the same with the other leg. Add ankle weights to make it even more efficient.
So, with just a few basic ingredients on hand you can be on your way to a healthy 5-minute breakfast with virtually no clean up afterwards. And don’t forget, lower cholesterol, healthier heart, stabilized blood glucose and improved digestion.
Next, eating breakfast is a great way to get much of the fiber you need for the day. Choose cereals with at least 4 g of fiber per serving. My favorite cereal is rolled oats with a little brown sugar blend and fat-free butter spray. Also, fruit is full of fiber. Start your day with an orange or an apple.
And don’t be afraid to ask and if they give you an answer that you are not content with, simply just don’t order that meal. If you have committed yourself to eating healthy do not let any stand in your way.
The third tip is don’t cut out all the fat! Fats are a necessary part of a healthy diet. It’s the types of fat you eat that is the key. Healthy fats, boost brain power, improve and mood, promote healthy pregnancies, contribute to healthy skin and hair, and help absorb certain vitamins, among other things. Rather than cut out all fats, just be smart about the ones you do eat. Seek out healthy fats such as those found in olive and canola oil, nuts, avocados, fish and seafood, and peanut butter. Cutting these out of your diet completely could lead to unhealthy nails and dull, flat hair, unhealthy nervous system and stress levels, and spikes in blood sugar. A little good fat goes a long way. So, make sure you work a little of these good fats into a well-rounded diet.
2) Make sure you eat breakfast every day. Eating a healthy breakfast is important every day. Breakfast starts your metabolism firing and working on burning calories throughout the day. Try to incorporate some protein into your breakfast if you can. By eating breakfast, you are keeping yourself fuller right up until lunchtime, and you are also giving your body energy to help you burn calories.
Start off by realizing that this isn’t a strict diet. Rather, we’re trying to decide what kind of foods to eat daily. If you’re consuming McDonalds and cake thrice daily, you probably don’t enjoy it that much but you’re in a cycle. You need to decide how you’d rather eat.
