4 Tips to a Healthier Diet
Taking on too much, too fast is hard to maintain. Leading to dropping it all. Start slowly, building up. An example can be to start by designating a specific day of the week as a sugar-free day. Then build up to every other day is sugar-free. You can then continue on to be completely sugar-free.
Have a Plan
At the start of the week make a menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner of healthy nutritious meals for the week. This will avoid being stuck not knowing what to make or eat and resorting to grabbing something that isn’t good for you.
Not being prepared leads to unhealthy eating choices. Be prepared with healthy meals and snacks that are easy to re-heat or grab-and-go. A great way to do that is to shop for all groceries on Sunday. Then prepare meals and snacks and freeze them in one serving sizes. Good examples are healthy muffins, cooked beans, roasted vegetables. These can all be made in advance and frozen for later use. When you would like to have some either defrost it in the fridge the night before or re-heat right before eating.
Have a Buddy
Having a health buddy is a great way to keep you motivated. Keep each other posted on accomplishments, challenges and tips. When you have someone doing the same as you and someone to tell your achievements to it, you encourage and help each other stick to it.
