Becoming A Healthy Eater

- 8 November 2008, 04:11

Being a healthy eater requires you to become both educated and smart about what healthy eating actually is.  Being food smart isn’t about learning to calculate grams or fat, or about studying labels and counting calories.

Healthy eating is all about balanced and moderate eating, consisting of healthy meals at least  three times per day.  Healthy eaters eat many different types of foods, not limiting themselves to one specific food type or food group.

Eating healthy requires quite a bit of leeway.  You might eat too much or not enough, consume foods that are sometimes more or less nutritious. However, you should always fuel your body and your brain regularly with enough food to keep both your mind and body strong and alert.

A healthy eater is a good problem solver.  Healthy eaters have learned to take care of themselves and their eating with sound judgement and making wise decisions.  Healthy eaters are always aware of what they eat, and know the effect that it will have on their bodies.

When someone is unable to take control of their eating, they are also likely to get out of control with other aspects of life as well.  They could end up spending too much, talking too much, even going to bed later and later.

So do you want to be a dieter all your life?  Or do you want to learn how to be a healthy eater?

The choice is yours…

As with anything in life, eating can be an obsession. Whether you are obsessed with food and overeating or you are obsessed with losing weight and seeing food as the enemy.

Think back to years ago, look at the artists and how they viewed a woman.  The sexy women were the ones with curves, the ones who had some “fat” on them!

You should always remember that restricting food in any way is always a bad thing.  Healthy eating
is a way of life, something that you can do to enhance your body or your lifestyle.  If you’ve thought about making your life better, healthy eating is just the place to start.  You’ll make life easier for yourself, those around you, and even your family.

Tips:

  • Eat more raw foods
  • Eat more vegetables
  • Eat more fruits
  • Cut back on sugars and adding extras to your drinks
  • MOVE-get up and exercise even if you just start out with a brisk walk each day
  • Don’t get discourage
  • Write down your feelings when you want to eat. Are you depressed? Are you worried?
  • Join a group that focuses on healthy eating and a new lifestyle not just a group for weight loss.

As always when you make a change in your lifestyle please contact your doctor to be sure you are in
good shape and ask him/her for advice on how you need to proceed for your own body type and goals.
