With a chaotic work-home life to be balanced, managing and maintaining your diet plan becomes a priority. However, not many have the opportunity to sit down and brainstorm to devise a proper diet plans.
Here are some simple nutrition and health tips supported by research, to eating healthy that can be handy for you:
Cut down on sugary drinks
Sugar laden drinks are the poison that you need to break away from when trying to cut the flab. With sugary drinks, you end up taking in more calories than you would through solid foods. It doesn’t stop at that- with liquids being digested faster, your glucose shoots right through the roof, often sending the non-utilized calories from them to be packed away in fat cells. Sugary drinks are strongly associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart risk and several other health perils.
Eat good fats
The big mistake that many people on a quest to weight loss make is associating body fat with dietary fat; when in fact, 3/4th of the body fat is due to excess of processed carbs and the wrong fats (Trans or excess saturated fat) and faulty lifestyle habits.
For overall health, it is important that you maintain a good fat intake. You need to maintain a healthy fat intake in moderation, for absorption of important nutrients like protein, Vit. A, D, E and K.
Eat nuts, fatty fishes, whole milk and milk products, oil seeds- foods rich in MUFAs and PUFAs.
