Top 10 Tips for Eating Healthy

Make meals up in advance

Your meals prepared at home can save you money and time. Also these meals that you make are meals that are healthier for you since they cut out more of the added chemicals that are dangerous to your health. Cook meals that are easily cooked and frozen and thawed later like soup, stew, chili or stir-fry. If you like a salads, try adding a protein to them like chicken or beef and a few other options like walnuts or pecans. If you would like something a bit more fun, try teriyaki chicken to reheat later and use on any of your fresh veggies. It will provide you with a warm salad and a good filling meal.

Make healthier snack choices and make them visible to the eye

You will want to make a prepared snack sack that has nuts, mini-protein bars as well as a form of protein like canned chicken and tuna. If you make these in bulk amounts, you simply need to grab a bag of snacks and go rather than looking around the kitchen for something to grab in a hurry which will most of the time be unhealthy. It will be a healthy option as well as an easy one.

Purchase smaller plates and also dishes to control the amount of portions you take


This is one way to cut back on some of the food that you eat daily. If the plate does not hold as much and the plate looks full, then you are less likely to stack it so much. Think about this, if you take two bananas and place one on a plate that is larger and another on the plate that is smaller, which one appears to be bigger than the other? Obviously the one on the plate that is larger looks smaller than the one that is on the smaller plate. The smaller plate looks fuller when in reality they are quite similar. This method works well for controlling the amount of food that you take and eat daily.

Make your calorie tracker as your meal planner

If you do not want to waste time filling out the tracker each time that you take a bite, you should take time in the morning while on your commute to enter in the amount of food that you think that you will eat that day. By doing this, you can keep track of the food and the calories that you are going to consume per day, therefore helping you to keep track of the food portions and keep you on the right track for losing weight.

Make sure you start keeping score when eating your largest meal of the day


It will take some maneuvering of the applications and programs to have the data start collecting at this meal but it is possible to do. If the meal that you eat the most food at is dinner, have that be the first meal of the day and collect the data from there. This will make it easier for you to keep track of your calories so that if you need to cut some back, you can cut it off from your least favorite meal instead of cutting off from your most important meal.
