How To Make Healthy Food Choices And Stick To Them
When you’re trying to improve your health and lose weight, making healthier food choices is where most people start. In a world filled with high sugar, highly processed food readily available it can be difficult to make those healthy food choices.
Here at Rapid Loss we support your weight loss journey, read on to discover some simple ways you can make healthy food choices and avoid temptation to reach your weight and health goals.
Don’t Skip Meals
Although weight loss is usually the case of burning more than you consume, skipping meals is never a good path to long-term weight loss.
Not only do you get hungry when you skip meals potentially leading to binging later, but you can also slow your metabolism causing your body to hold onto fat and make weight loss more difficult.
So, get your hunger in check by choosing healthy, satiating meals and snacks and not skipping meals.
Meal Prep In Advance
The best way to stay on track with healthy eating is to have healthy meals easy and accessible. Pre-slice vegetables and fruits and keep in air-tight containers at eye level in the front of your fridge.
Pack Healthy Snacks
Along the same line as meal prepping, make sure you have healthy portioned snacks accessible to you as well. Knowing and having a nutritious snack option will help you curb cravings and steer clear of high sodium or high sugar snacks.
Eat A Protein- And Fibre-Rich Breakfast
The secret to staying full through to your healthy lunch is a filling breakfast. So make sure to enjoy a balanced breakfast packed with protein and fibre to keep your energy levels up and your stomach full.
What you eat in the morning not only sets your hunger level but also the tone for how you eat throughout the day. So start the day with a filling meal like oats, chia pudding or an omelette and top everything with fibre-rich fruit and veggies.
Fill Your Plate With Fruit And Veggies
Plants are not only low calorie, but they’re also incredibly filling so focus on eating more plants with your meal to make them more satiating.
Crowd out your plate by packing in as much produce as you can, keeping the fruit and veggies portion larger than the other elements of your plate.
Drink More Water
Our bodies need lots of water to keep our energy levels up, keep hydrated and help with digestion. Drinking water before meals may also help to curb hunger and keep you satisfied before, after or during a meal.
So, if you’re feeling hungry even though you’ve polished off your healthy meal or snack, drink a glass or two of water the likelihood is that you’re just needing to rehydrate.
Keep A Food Diary
Let’s face it, we all lie to ourselves in one way or another whether it’s conscious or not. Especially when it comes to healthy eating we can often mislead ourselves about portions and the types of food we’re eating. To stay honest with yourself and keep track of the types of food and amount you’re eating, keep a food diary or use an app.
Not only can developing a food-tracking habit make you more aware of portion sizes and eating patterns, it can also help detect mindless or emotional eating so you can alter your diet where needed and keep yourself accountable to make healthier choices.
