life drink water the age-old adage of
staying hydrated comes first in our set
of simple healthy tips our modern diet
is loaded with so many sugary drinks and
creamy lattes that we often forget to
ease up with some good old-fashioned
water not only does it dodge the
calories of heavier drinks but it’s
easier on the wallet as well sometimes
you may feel hungry and want a snack
when all your body’s really telling you
is that it wants water and while it is
common knowledge that doctors recommend
drinking eight glasses of water a day
people often forget that this water
consumption includes the water in your
food as well so if you’re thirsty grab a
drink of water but do it comfortably
keeping a reusable bottle of water on
you throughout the day should be more
than enough to respond to your daily
water needs avoid refined sugars looking
back at statistics obesity rates have
skyrocketed since the 1960s increasing
alongside the amount of sugar added to
our foods in their campaign against
fatty foods
the USDA inadvertently made refined
sugars a staple of the American diet
sugar is now the leading cause of heart
disease and obesity and we have to be
proactive when it comes to the sugar we
consume or else it’ll negatively affect
our health too
avoiding soft drinks and candy is
paramount as they’re all loaded with
sugars and empty calories these sweets
can instead be replaced with natural
sugars found in fruits and vegetables
cut back on processed meats and cheeses
while fats are nowhere near as bad as
refined sugars factory processed meats
and cheeses are still a major cause for
concern in fact the World Health
Organization classifies processed meats
like bacon ham and sausage as a class 1
carcinogen now this doesn’t necessarily
mean you should cut out all red meat
from your diet or switch to a vegan diet
it’s important to make small sustainable
changes to our diet we want to make
these changes lasts reduce the amount of
processed meat that you eat substituting
them instead with chicken or fish after
all the goal is to simply reduce the
amount of trans fat saturated fat and
cholesterol we consume yet 30 minutes of
exercise a day doctors will always tell
you to fit some exercise into your day
even if it’s not for very long
research shows that physical activity
and long-term health share an inverse
exponential relationship meaning that a
tiny bit of exercise will go a long way
towards your overall health 30 minutes
of exercise a day is the optimal amount
of time for someone who is physically
inactive but is still looking to start
the exercise doesn’t have to be
particularly physically draining either
a bit of light cardio or yoga will do
the trick
eat more fiber Western diets are also
saturated with bleached flour or white
bread leading people to fill up on lots
of starchy foods without ever feeling
full the key to feeling full is eating
fiber it staves off binging helps us
feel fuller for longer and keeps us
regular it’s easy to incorporate fiber
into your diet just making a few easy
substitutions in your pantry
substitute white bread for whole-wheat
white rice or brown rice and standard
cereals for fiber rich cereals or
oatmeal read nutrition labels all of
these tips start and end with reading
the nutrition labels on your food a lot
of advertising and marketing surrounding
food can be deceiving some popular
trends like The Fan Fair behind low-fat
diets outright lie to customers about
the touted health benefits counting
calories eating a balanced diet and
integrating more nutrients into your
food is essential not just for healthy
living but for achieving fitness and
athletic goals as well it forces you to
cook at home more often allowing you to
take control of your own nutrition
echoing Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution
it’s important to learn about the foods
we eat and focus about the quality of
our food not just the quantity pace
yourself
the most important thing to remember
while making changes to your diet and
regimen is to understand that positive
results will take patience and
discipline everyone wants to feel great
about their body in the way they look
it’s only natural but lack of exercise
and bad eating habits made worse by
massive companies looking to profit off
of our temptations have made it
difficult for many people to manage
their weight and maintain a positive
body image the goal of these tips is to
make small strides towards permanent
change the last thing you want to do is
torture yourself with impossible goals
and make zero progress or worse yet lose
all of the progress that you’ve made on
a difficult diet or fitness routine pace
yourself listen to what your body wants
and reward yourself for sticking to your
goals if you succeed in doing all of
this you’ll be well on your way to a
