Healthy Meals, Healthy Eating
What are the most important benefits of eating healthy meals?
Diet and food nutrition health is the foundation upon which a
healthy body weight is maintained and the basis for adequate
diet weight control.
Not only will a healthy eating diet help you to lose weight,
eating the right foods will help you maintain a healthy weight
body mass index (BMI).
It never fails to amaze me, the number of women who will say
they are trying to lose weight by starving themselves throughout
the day. Yet when hunger really bites they reach for the nearest
unhealthy foods to snack on.
This is of course far more damaging to thier diet loss weight goals
than if they sat down to regular healthy meals or healthy snacks.
You should be aiming to consume three healthy meals each day. That
is breakfast, lunch and an evening meal.
You can of course snack in between meals. Health-ful Snacking is
a healthy habit that will stave off hunger and stop you from picking
on unhealthy nibbles.
Healthy meals that will ensure both food nutrition health, at
the same time you're losing excess body weight, will consist of
a wide range of health-ful foods, as part of your overall healthy eating plan.
In a nutshell, a healthy balanced diet - such as the
Mediterranean Diet will consist of health-ful foods including
fibre-rich whole grain food products, lean meats, low fat dairy
products and plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables - remember 5-a-day.
Fibre-rich foods such as brown rice, brown bread, whole grains etc.,
will not only keep you feeling full, you will also eat far less.
You want to avoid refined food products such as white bread, cakes,
pastries that will not satisfy you but leave you craving for more.
The way in which you prepare healthy meals is also an important
feature of your overall diet weight control or or healthy weight
plan. Try grilling or roasting lean meats as opposed to frying.
Drain any excess fat from roasting pans etc.,
Fats are an important part of your healthy eating diet and need to
feature in your healthy meals.
You will however need to ensure that
the fats you consume are not of the saturated type but comes from
healthy sources such as fish, avocado, nuts and the likes of - olive
While all fats are fattening, if you minimise your intake of harmful
saturated fats in favour of those outlined above, you will make a
significant contribution to both your dietary needs, as well as
helping your overall health fitness and weight loss diet goals.
