Items that are lower in fat tend to have excess sugar in an attempt to regain some of the flavor. Be suspicious of packaging that claims to be low in calories.
If possible, limit the number of grains in your diet for a certain period of time. Over the course of time humans have eaten veggies, fruit, meat, and legumes. Much of the grain that we eat today is artificially processed and has lost most of its nutritional value. If you minimize or eliminate grains from your diet, you may notice improvements in the way that you feel.
You should always opt for fresh fruit instead of fruit juices. Fruit juice is full of artificial sweeteners, and fresh fruit is not. While fruit juice may be touted as the healthy alternative, some contain more sugar than soda. Additionally, there are necessary vitamins, minerals and fiber in fresh fruit that may head off diseases, such as stroke as well as some other cardiovascular problems.
Try to cut back on your sugar and salt by using less of it when cooking. Your preferences will adjust themselves, and you’ll find that something that was just right before is now too salty or sugary. Making the change a slow one, reduces the likelihood that you will resist or resent it.
Reading was the easy part! Putting into practice what you have learned will take a little more effort but be well worth the energy spent and even give you more energy in the long run. You have taken the initial steps necessary to begin positive changes in your consumption habits and once you put them into action you will be much happier and healthier for it!
