Tips to have Better Lifestyle

   Learning to live a healthy lifestyle is easy when you change one small thing at a time. Here are some simple facts and tips that will help you make healthier food choices for life.

Prefer the smallest portion size available.

   TIP 1: Prefer the smallest portion size available.

         When eating out, always prefer the smallest portion size available. Keep in mind that if you are still hungry after choosing a smaller meal, you can always fill up with something else and enjoy a wider variety of tastes in the process.

   TIP 2: Drink a glass of water before a meal.

 Drink a glass of water before a meal.         Drinking water before your meal will partially fill up your stomach and may reduce your hunger levels, because often when we think we are feeling hunger, our body is actually telling us that it is getting dehydrated and needs some water.
Walking to loss weight.

   TIP 3: Walking to loss weight.

           Walking for exercise and weight loss is so simple and natural, it barely seems like work. That’s the great thing about walking – it can gently change your health without having to break a sweat! 

Eat on a regular schedule.

TIP 4: Eat on a regular schedule. 

        Try not to let more than about 4 hours go by between meals or snacks. Steady meal timing helps control your digestive system, blood sugar and insulin levels, and appetite.

Listen to your body.

TIP 5: Listen to your body.

        Eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full, meaning satisfied, not stuffed. That’s so you get used to relying on your hunger and fullness cues to tell you when to stop and start eating.

            Eat real foods and stay away from anything processed, pre-cooked, frozen, and deep fried, etc. Try to eat 3 meals and 2 snacks every day. Spread your calories throughout those meals and make sure to include a source of protein, crabs and good fats in every meal you eat.

              Try to keep things simple.  :)
