Healthy Diet and Fitness Tips
What you eat has a lot to do with how healthy you will be. Just as what kind of gas you put in your car affects how it will run, what we put into our bodies and minds affect how our bodies and minds work. Exercise alone will not make you healthy. Here are 16 diet and fitness health tips for women.
Training without proper nutrition is not optimum health at all. A good diet is not just about what you eat but how and when you eat. The food you put in your body can make the difference between a long and short life.
If you are far from the ideal, why not incorporate a few life changes at once? If you make systematic changes during the year, you can transform your whole diet a little at a time. Maybe you are at a loss of where to start. Here are some suggestions:
2. Add Fruit To Your Diet
Increase your fruit intake one serving at a time until you are eating 3-4 servings per day. Try Dr. Smoothie crushed fruit. It comes in many flavors.
3. Eat One Raw Salad Per Day
I knew a family that served a salad every day with dinner. This is an excellent way to increase raw vegetables in your diet. Incorporate more raw veggies daily.
5. Plan Your Meals For The Week
Cut up some raw vegetables and put them in an airtight container to prepare a quick salad. Buy frozen vegetables that you can put in a quick vegetable soup or stew.
Roast some potatoes and put them in the refrigerator to warm them later that week. Use your crockpot and prepare a healthy meal.
However, if you know you will not get the recommended amounts of vegetables per day, why not consider Amazing Grass, Green Superfood? This superfood should not replace your fruits and vegetables but can supplement your diet. One suggestion would be to add it to your smoothies.
6. Include orange, yellow, red, green or purple veggies daily
Make your meals colorful.
8. Decrease Your Consumption of Meat
Reduce your intake of meat, especially red meat. Increase your servings of beans and other protein sources such as Quinoa.
9. Choose vegetable or whole grain pasta
Whole grain or veggie pasta has more nutrients than enriched rice or pasta.
10. Eliminate Sodas From Diet
There is nothing healthy about sodas. There are no essential nutrients in them.
12. Try Almond or Soy Milk Instead of animal milk
Almond milk is a healthy alternative to animal-based milk. You may also like Soy Milk.
13. eat more nuts seeds and grains
Whole grain bread, crackers muffins, and just the natural seeds and nuts are healthy options.
14. Eat healthy Fats in Moderation
We need a certain amount of fat in our diets to be healthy. However, too much healthy fat can increase cholesterol in your body. The key is to keep everything in balance.
15. Use Healthy Sugar Substitutes
Instead of refined sugar, try dried fruit, raw cane sugar, Agave Nectar, coconut sugar, or similar products.
16. Buy a Good Blender
If you want healthy smoothies, soups, spreads, meals, or any other healthy dishes in your diet, I recommend the Vitamix Blender.
