Read the labels of prepared foods carefully. Do not assume that if a product claims to be reduced fat that it is healthy. It may have trans-fats or high cholesterol. Foods that have been overly processed do not lend to weight loss. If the label has a lot of words you don’t understand, it’s probably not healthy. Refrain from buying a product that lists numerous artificial ingredients on the label.
Tracking your progress can help you see how far you have come. Keep track of your blood pressure if you are having problems with it and see how you progress. Another example is charting how much weight you have lost since the start of your diet.
To sneak some better nutrition into your diet, you can add healthy, tasteless foods to something you’re already eating. This is important for individuals who have children that are picky about what they will eat, but you can do this for yourself, as well. Try adding a bit of flax in with your fruit smoothies, or replace the ground beef with turkey in your chili. This will improve the nutritional content of every meal you prepare, and your family will never know the difference.
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!
