Weight loss management specialist and Cardiologist Dr. Luiza Petre tips has for being healthier this year.
Tip #1. Eat Breakfast
A healthy morning meal jump-starts your metabolism, satisfies your appetite and delivers sustained energy. Many studies have linked eating breakfast to good health, including lower levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol, better memory and concentration. It also lowers your chances of being overweight and getting diabetes and heart disease.
Tip #2. Cook Your Own Meals
The less you cook, the more weight you gain. Maybe it sounds strange, but several scientific studies show that eating a healthy home cooked meal can put you on the fast track to have a slimmer waistline and a healthier you.
Tip #3. Eat a Variety of Foods
Eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, whole grains and dairy is the surest way to consume a wide variety of important nutrients your body needs. In fact, you need more than 40 different nutrients for good health and no single food can supply them all.
Tip #4. Pick Bright Colored Foods
The best way to stay healthy is to eat a wide variety of vitamin-rich foods, including fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables with bright colors are usually high in anti-oxidants which minimize the cell damage that may lead to cancer, Alzheimer’s, and other diseases.
Tip #5. Eat Regularly
Experts are pretty unambiguous about eating regularly because of the effects skipping meals can have on your body and mind. When you don’t eat often enough, the feeling that you need to have something to eat takes over. Skipping meals, especially breakfast, can lead to out-of-control hunger, often resulting in helpless overeating.
Tip #6. Drop Out Processed foods
Processed foods are not good because most nutritional value is lost. It tends to have a long shelf life, thanks to the added sugar, salt, and preservatives within, which lead to higher blood pressure and heart disease. Watch out for those with salt/sugar as the first 5 ingredients and go for natural foods as much as possible.
