Most of Us Want to Eat Healthy, But Why Don’t We?
Most Americans need to eat better food. That concerns me a great deal. There is a saying that goes something like this, “You are what you eat.” In that case, if you eat healthy food, you are going to tend to be more healthy.
If you eat unhealthily, you are going to tend to be more physically unhealthy. Seems to be pretty logical and straight forward. Learn how to eat better food and more healthy food. Try to avoid fried, processed, foods with too much salt and sugar. Plus try to use proper discretion about how much food you eat. Don’t forget to exercise and sleep 7 hours at night. ~ Bill Greguska
Keep in mind to eat healthy food is vital to living better!
- What and how much you eat is critical also to your health!
- Have a friend help encourage you to your new choice in how you eat better. You will need help because it can get difficult sometimes.
- Be sure to chew your food enough before swallowing. In our fast-paced society, people tend to wolf down their food. I suggest somewhere between at least 8 and 12 chews per mouth full, and some say that up to 36 chews per mouthful. Use your common sense but be sure to at least chew more!
- A little laughter can help you to digest your food. Besides that, it has a way of making eating healthy more enjoyable!
- Eat with family or friends when possible. Eating with other people has many social and emotional benefits. Chew your food slowly, savoring every bite. People tend to rush though our meals, forgetting to taste the flavors and feel the textures of our food. Reconnect with the joy of eating. I will say it again, how you eat is vital to your life!
- Question yourself if you are starving, by having a glass of water to see if you are thirsty instead of hungry. During a meal, stop eating before you feel full. It takes up to 20 minutes for your brain to tell your body that it had enough food to eat, try to eat slowly. Make sure you eat breakfast and eat smaller meals throughout the day. A healthy breakfast can jump-start your metabolism, and eating small, healthy meals throughout the day instead of the standard three large meals, keeps your energy up and your metabolism going.
- Avoid eating at night. How you eat, makes a big difference to our health. Studies show that this simple dietary adjustment such as eating only when you’re active and giving your digestive system a long break each day that might help to regulate weight.
- Don’t be shy, eat fruits and vegetables regularly. Fruits and vegetables are the real foundations of a healthy diet. They are low in calories and are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. Make it a point to eat healthy starting today!
- The bottom line. People seem to want to make eating healthy more complicated than it is. Keep it simple by remembering that how you eat is crucial. Ask God to help you while you use common sense and self-control. How you eat will greatly decide how you feel and how healthy you will be.
