With the a crisp chill in the air, Fall has arrived to the northern states. Golden, russet, and burnt orange are ablaze!
What better time than now to get into eating healthy and creating a fitness program. VERY soon the temps will drop and the holiday goodies will DESCEND upon us like locusts ...
With WAY too many temptations to ignore, we will pick a little here and a litter there and before we know it TEN POUNDS! Don't let this happen to you ...
My special guest and blogger friend, L. Diane Wolfe is visiting me here today with some great tips on how to eat healthy anytime. Start now and avoid the pitfalls later! LOL.
I know I learned a few good tips from reading her post and so will you. Please welcome, L. Diane everyone. You will be pleased to meet her, if you don't know her already.
Eating healthy isn’t just a challenge for writers. It’s a challenge for everyone. It’s easier to grab fast food, a packaged/frozen/canned meal, or store-bought snacks. Unfortunately, most contain a high amount of calories and fat. Food companies have conducted tests and know that the most appealing flavors are sweet and fatty. That’s why everything that’s bad for you tastes so good.
Healthy eating means making smart choices. Moderation is key. So is eating a variety of foods. It has to be a complete lifestyle change. This is why diets fail. Cutting back for a month just means that when we go back to eating normal, we’ll put the weight on again. And extreme diets such as the protein diet do more damage than good. The changes we make in the way we eat need to be permanent and healthy.
Not only will eating better help with weight control, it will eliminate potential health problems. Most debilitating diseases such as diabetes and heart problems can be avoided by eating right. A healthy diet can prevent you from getting sick, too. I’m a vegan (no animal products at all) for many reasons, including my health, but even I have to watch what I eat.
