If you want to lose weight or avoid gaining it, you need to maintain a healthy and balanced nutrition routine. Your nutrition constitutes the fuel which you put into your body and, similar to a car, the wrong kind of fuel will make your body function less than optimally.
In the case of us humans, the wrong kind of fuel can result in a variety of negative side effects, one of the most prominent ones being weight gain.
To help you avoid gaining weight or to get you to lose it more quickly, I want to share 3 tips for a healthy nutrition. I believe that if you follow these tips in your life that you will find it much easier to have and keep a healthy and great looking body.
Tip #1 – Choose Your Cooking Oil Carefully
Cooking or frying your food in oil is not always such a bad thing. Much depends on the type of oil you choose for your cooking. Some oils actually provide your body with healthy fat which can be good for you. In fact, it can even be vital for your health. Two oils which are considered good are olive oil and coconut oil. Use these for your cooking and fried dishes.
Tip #2 – Choose your sweeteners carefully
Enjoying a little bit of sweet foods is not a sin as some would make it. It doesn’t always have to mean that you’re on your way to gaining weight. The type of sweetener is important. For instance, Stevia is considered a healthy sweetener and raw honey likewise has many health benefits. Refined sugar and some of the artificial sweeteners which are touted as healthy are often anything but and can quickly lead to weight gain.
Tip #3 – Choose your drinks carefully
What you drink can make you fat. It’s as simple as that. The calories you consume through your beverages are “sneaky” because you often don’t even feel that they’re there. However, it’s likely that you’re consuming hundreds of extra calories each and every week through your drinks. If you like to drink coffee, sodas, or alcohol, I suggest that you stick to the low calorie, low sugar varieties. In fact, the basic rule of thumb as far as drinks are concerned is to keep everything as simple as possible. The less there is in your drinks the better.
If you follow these 3 simple tips, I believe you will have a better looking body very quickly.
