Living a healthy lifestyle and maintaining a healthy diet can be hard! But it doesn’t have to be. What if I told you that maintaining a healthy diet is as simple as eating the right foods in the right amounts. It’s not about choosing “the right” diet or about cutting out all carbs. It’s as simple as choosing to eat the right foods in the right amounts. Nearly all of us, if we were to evaluate our nutritional intake, would find out that we are deficient in a number of different areas. So what are the right foods and how can I remove nutritional deficiencies?
These two questions go hand in hand. In order to remove nutritional deficiencies you need to start eating the right food. You can start by drinking more hydrating fluids, eating more vitamin and mineral rich food, eating more protein rich food, by increasing your essential fats intake and eating healthy carbs.
Hydrating Fluid: water, gatorade, ORS
Vitamin and Mineral rich food: nuts, beans, lentils, dark leafy greens, fish, sweet potato, spinach, broccoli, kale, carrots, strawberries, capsicum, citrus fruits
Protein dense foods: chicken breast, mutton, egg, salmon, pork, tuna, chickpeas, lintels, kidney beans, paneer, green peas.
Essential fats: fish, fish oil (omega 3), algae oil, nuts
Healthy Carbs: vegetables, whole fruits, legumes, nuts, seeds, quinoa, oatmeal, whole wheat bread
By choosing to eat the right food in the right amounts, you will set yourself up for a sustainable lifestyle while seeing the results you desire.
