Tips To Maintain A Healthy Diet

Different Nutrients To Maintain Health

Research shows that to be able to maintain a good and healthy day to day diet we have to compensate the foods that we eat on a daily basis. It is not good for the body to receive too much of one kind of nutrient and not enough of another, a high intake of calories is also not good for the body if you do not do enough exercise to compensate them.

Eating the right amount of food for your body and eating around the same time each day will help you to form a routine that your body will become accustomed to, which helps maintain your health and weight at a similar level. By eating moderate amounts of food at meal time, you can still eat the food you like and keep the weight you want.

Try to reduce foods that include bad substances such as saturated fats, but do not eliminate them completely from your diet. You can find these types of fats in red meat for example, and instead of eliminating red meat from your diet, try to reduce the intake of it to once a week. For a more detailed explication, look for a food pyramid, this will explain everything you need to know.

Did you know that you need over forty different nutrients to maintain a healthy life? As there is not one single food that supplies you with all of these nutrients you have to eat a variety of different foods to stay healthy. Some foods should be eaten on a daily basis and others should be eaten on a weekly basis or three to four times a week.

Try to eat a lot of food such as whole grain foods, fruit and vegetables on a daily basis. Research has shown that a lot of the population does not eat enough of these foods, when we should eat at least 14 servings a week of pasta and rice, 3 pieces of fruit a day and at least 4 servings of vegetables a day.

Drinking a lot of water on a daily basis will help you clean out any toxins that you might have in your body and therefore make you feel a lot more energetic and healthy. Water also reduces the intake of calories and takes away false sensations of hunger, which cause people to snack too may times a day and because of this, put on weight.

If you have about half an hour a day to spare, a little exercise is always a good way to stay healthy and maintain the weight you want, or even to loose weight. Walking up the stairs instead of using the elevator, sit ups and squats are just a few of the exercises that you can do in hardly any time at all, at any time of the day and if you make a routine of it, you will find that you will start to feel better in the space of a couple of weeks.

If you suffer from health problems and want to get in shape, loose a bit of weight or even change your diet to a healthier one, it is recommended to see a professional, such a nutritionist or your doctor, before starting any changes. They can tell you which diet and exercise is best for you and your health condition.
