Many welcome New Year by making a list of resolutions which include joining a gym, choosing a new diet plan, following detox diets in order to stay healthy and get rid of those extra kilos. But few changes in the eating habits can also help you in getting the right frame.
Here are few simple steps that could help you in shedding a few inches.
Eat Meals In Descending Order
Healthy eating simply means taking the right kind of food, in right portion and at the right time. To get positive results, things need to be done in balance. Hence, it is advised to make sure you consume a heavy breakfast, followed by a moderate lunch and a light dinner.
Opt For Smart Alternatives
Snacking smartly is a great way to start leading a healthy lifestyle. Look for nutritious alternatives, for instance, you can go for a handful of almonds instead consuming unhealthy fries. You can also opt maple syrup instead of sugar.
Keep Yourself Hydrated
People often mistake thirst for hunger, so next time you feel like munching on something off-the shelf, reach for water first. This may help you to steer away from unhealthy snacking.
Eat More Often
Light, frequent meals help to curb your appetite. They boost your energy and even speed up your metabolism. Nuts such as almonds are a convenient snack that can be eaten anywhere, anytime, so keep some almonds handy in a tiffin box so that you will always have your perfect daily portion.
Set Realistic Goals
Do not try to radically change your diet overnight. If you make too many changes at once, chances are that you might drop the ball and give into temptations. Instead, make small changes every day, such as eating at least one fruit a day, opting for healthier alternative like handful of nuts instead unhealthy fries and maple syrup in your cup of tea or coffee daily.
So my dear friends, follow these simple steps in order to shed those extra kilos...
