  1. Change your eating menu as healthy eating If you change your habits of eating little bit by rating healthy food than the junk food is the first step towards your concern about health. Try to drink a lot of water and eat salad whenever you have your meal. Try to eat fresh fruits and vegetables than packed and processed food and fruits. It’s very necessary to rat healthy food the more you eat healthy food the more you will be healthy.
  2. Decrease amount of sugar in your food Excessive intake of sugar could be dangerous so try to minimise the intake of sugar as much as possible. Many of us make mistake of replacing healthy sources of saturated fat such as whole milk dairy with refined carbs or sugary foods. Cut down on the amount of candy and sweets you eat is one of the ways to reduce your sugar intake
  3. Eat fresh vegetables and fruits You must really eat lots of fruits and vegetables as they are low in calories and nutrient dense. Veggies and fruits are basically packed with vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and fibre. You should focus on eating minimum of five servings of fruit and vegetables daily. It will naturally fill you up and help you cut back on unhealthy foods.
  4. Add more fibre in your meal The more natural the food, the higher it is in fibre. Good sources of fibre include whole grains, cereals, barley, beans, oat meals, and nuts, vegetables such as carrots, celery, and tomatoes and fruits namely apples, berries, citrus fruits, and pears.
  5. Eat healthy carbs and whole grains They can be easily digested, helping you feel full for a longer time, and keeping blood sugar and insulin levels stable. Unhealthy carbs are foods such as white flour, refined sugar, and white rice that have been stripped of all bran, fibre, and nutrients.
  6. Add more protein to your meal Eat plenty of fish, chicken, or plant-based protein such as beans, nuts, and soy. Replace processed carbohydrates from pastries, cakes, pizza, cookies and chips with fish, beans, nuts, seeds, peas, tofu, chicken, dairy, and soy products. Snack on nuts and seeds instead of chips, replace baked dessert with Greek yogurt, or swap out slices of pizza for a grilled chicken breast and a side of beans.
  7. Watch your intake of salt Eating too much salt can cause high blood pressure and lead to an increased risk of stroke, heart disease, kidney disease, memory loss, and erectile dysfunction. You should buy unsalted nuts and add a little of your own salt until your taste buds are accustomed.
