Hi Tasty25ers! After receiving several emails from individuals in our food conscious community, we’ve decided to launch our “Nutrition Tips” series. We’ll be giving practical advice on how to not only change diet habits that hold us back from a healthy lifestyle, but also how to stick with ’em! Our first nutrition tip is for you to setup your diet for success! To accomplish this, think about planning a healthy diet as a number of small, manageable steps rather than one big drastic change. If you approach the changes gradually and with a full commitment to do so, you’ll definitely have a healthy diet sooner than you think! Check out 3 EASY ways to setup your diet below, and remember to always be encouraged to stick with your healthy diet decisions; We believe in YOU! Share anything additional that you’d like to add to this tip by commenting below, and Happy Cooking! -Tasty25 Staff
3 Simple Tips on How to Setup a Healthy Diet:
Keep it SIMPLE! Instead of being overly concerned with counting calories or measuring your portion sizes, think of your diet in terms of color, variety, and freshness; It should be much easier to make healthy choices this way! Focus on finding foods you love, and easy recipes that incorporate a few fresh ingredients. Gradually, your diet is going to become healthier and more delicious!
SLOW DOWN, and make changes to eating habits over time! We all need to realize this: Trying to make your diet healthy overnight isn’t realistic or smart. Changing everything at once usually leads to cheating, or giving up on your new eating plan prematurely. If you choose to take small steps, like adding a healthy salad to your diet once a day or switching from butter to olive oil when cooking, you begin to form true healthy habits. And as these changes become habit, you can continue to add more healthy choices to your diet!
Every change MATTERS. You don’t have to be perfect, but you have to try! As a food conscious community, every Tasty25 Magazine viewer & subscriber should have a long term goal of feeling good, having more energy, and reducing their risk of disease and injury. So DO NOT let your missteps derail you! EVERY healthy food choice you make counts!
