Balanced diet and eat healthy food to make your belly flat
Are you wondering what nutrition experts mean by eating healthy? Don’t worry. Eating healthy does not have to be complicated. It doesn’t mean all pulses, oatmeal and veggies. It clearly does not mean skipping chocolates and ice creams. Hell, those are justified at any time! But yes, it does mean loading up on a lot of fruits, veggies, grains and lean meats alike. It does mean having a healthy a.m. meal. It means morning walk and a lot more. Let’s face it, you wont get that flat belly without a little hard work.
But why is eating healthy so important? All of us want more energy, an ideal slim, hourglass body and beautiful younger-looking skin… enough said. Thanks to technology, we have not only become lazy and lethargic, we have stopped taking care for ourselves too. Eating the right kind of foods are, therefore, significantly important for one to fend off cardiac diseases and enhance the immune systems. Not only does the right diet keep your appetite satisfied, but it also helps you to avoid junk-food cravings; it gives you energy, it keeps your brain active and muscles working; it strengthens your bones and regulates your body processes; it relieves water retention and keep you feeling fuller for longer than usual, setting the stage for wise decisions all day long! Brownie points for that alone!
So what follow now are some of the foods that you should incorporate in your everyday meal to create a perfectly healthy diet for you and your family. Do load up your shopping cart with lots of eggs as they are a good source of proteins. Start stocking your fridge and pantry with lots of vitamin C in the form of lemons and broccoli. Just one-fourth of an ounce of dark chocolate daily can reduce blood pressure in otherwise healthy individuals (yes you read it right – dark chocolate!). Don’t forget to add avocados in your salad as they are rich in healthy fats. Garlic acts as a powerful disease fighter. You can supercharge your health with yogurt which is a great way to get calcium. Salmon, or any fish for that matter, is a great nutritional powerhouse with plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to reduced risk of depression and cancer. There is no harm in popping a few nuts daily for dessert as they help to regulate sleep and protect against sun damage (but don’t forget that SPF!). Spinach can be added to any smoothie or puree as a sideline (you wont taste it, we promise) AND it’s healthy! The key is to achieve and maintain a balance with the foods you eat. Keep it exciting by including lots of variety and remember all things in moderation.
Along with a low-calorie, healthy diet, you should do plenty of exercise. We know that one size does not fit all but this is one way that suits all to stay healthy. And it is something we should do more of to stay healthy and live longer.
