Indeed we have almost gone beyond the first quarter of the year 2018. Have you managed to maintain those New Year’s determinations regarding your aims for a healthy diet and lifestyle? For a large number of people staying on the white line that is consistent with attempts to keep up their promises of a healthy diet and lifestyle can be difficult.
Here, the first thing to acknowledge is that we are not perfect. We always make mistakes then it’s up to us all to recreate our intentions. As for as I am concerned and I’ve noticed over the years, nobody at least not that I know achieves perfect health. The trick is to realize that it is an ongoing process. So, keep yourself fired up and inspired by how you can maintain that healthy diet and lifestyle!
Responsibility is the key and caring for yourself by bringing your inspired thoughts and deeds into action. Keep educating yourself on this lifelong process while learning to discern is another key. So, here are my 11 most effective and health tips for living a healthy diet and lifestyle. I would strongly recommend putting these tips into your health strategies.
Distinguish Between Healthy and Unhealthy Fats
Try not to fall for the marketing hype; you should take good quality fats as part of an essential diet. Coconut oil with multiple health benefits is an excellent example of a good healthy saturated fat.
Organic food does not have chemicals laden as in the non-organic option. It is GMO-free and has higher nutritional value.
Eat Plenty of Raw Food
A raw food diet allows you to get the full nutritional benefit out of your food. Food like this does not get the vitamins and enzymes denatured through irradiation, heat or freezing and is, therefore, able to take part effectively in the metabolism of the body.
Never Eat Too Much At Once
Your insulin levels will be normalized if you eat in moderate amounts throughout the day. Fasting occasionally will also help you with insulin levels. Both of these situations can contribute to maintain or lose weight because of insulin normalization. Eating too much at once is originally a bad habit and you should learn that how to get rid of your bad habits in an effective way.
GMO foods have potentially harmful effects from their ‘toxic genes’. They contain a number of chemicals used as herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, and fertilizers. These chemicals can not only compromise the nutrition value but also cause potential harm. Some GMO fruits have been known to contain 30 times more fructose than organic ones.
Drink Plenty of Water
Having a plentiful supply of water for the body provides numerous health benefits. Since water is the major component of our body, that’s why we need plenty of water supply throughout the day.
Avoid Junk Foods
Junk foods have the effect of causing a whole range of health problems. Learn to discern this. Try not to eat junk food or at least cut down on it. Always keep in mind that you have to eat healthy food only.
Alkalize Your Body
Eat foods that contribute to raising your body’s pH for the healthier option.
Develop the habit of exercise around 15-20 minutes a day. There is some excellent information to be found online explaining the health benefits of exercise and why it is highly recommended by top ranked doctors and health nutritionists.
Aim to get around 15-30 minutes direct sunlight a day. If not available say in winter times then try supplementing with vitamin D3 tablets. Around 5000 IU’s a day will suffice.
Have a Happy Attitude in Life
Remember your attitude in life like thoughts, feeling, and emotions manifest reality. Keep a watchful eye on how you see life and if needed make the necessary changes.
