5 Tips To Help You Eat Healthier
This is not a post to read if you want to lose weight in lightning speed, this is simply something I would like to share with you and maybe point out a few things you didn’t notice before to help with a healthier diet.
I’ve had quite a few roommates in my life and watching their daily habit and the food they choose to eat made me realized that a lot of people don’t notice that they are eating the wrong food. A lot of people who think they eat healthy still fall under some of the traps mentioned below. They complain about their body being weak, tired all the time or they’re bigger but it really comes down to what they eat.
1. EAT LESS PROCESSED FOOD.
I was going to write “eat less junk food”, but everyone’s definition of junk food can vary. Processed food is everywhere in our daily life: bread, sugar, ketchup, cheese, chips, hot dogs, soda, crackers, mac n cheese… I’m not saying that they should be eliminated completely, but instead of eating bread every day you can have oatmeal instead or corn tortilla every once in a while.
No matter how healthy your processed food claims to be, organic, gluten free, less sodium, less fat, they most likely still contains more chemicals/sodium/fat/sugar that you don’t need. Just because something is organic doesn’t always make it healthy. It is just “healthier” than the other brand.
