Healthy Diet and Lifestyle
A healthy diet - the phrase sounds so "good for you", but does it sometimes make you think of boring tasteless food you probably wouldn't want to eat?
It did for me.
The truth is that eating healthy doesn't have to be boring or flavorless at all - and the benefits of choosing healthy foods are certainly worth it.
The effects of healthy diets are many: more energy, less illness and disease and a longer, more fulfilled life.
Even memory and eyesight can be maintained and improved over time with healthy food choices.
If you are looking to achieve weight loss, a balanced healthy diet is essential. Eating a balanced diet and not starving your body with super low calorie diets or those depriving you of healthy foods will allow your body to lose weight at a rate that is appropriate for you, while maintaining optimum health.
So just what is a healthy diet? We have lots of information for you on the site about that.
For starters, here are two major points to consider about healthy diets and losing weight:
Balance is the Key
Like everything in life, balance is the key to eating well. Low fat doesn't mean no fat and low carb doesn't mean no carbs. Taking the time to learn just a little bit about the foods we eat, choosing wisely and avoiding those foods that our bodies really don't need or like can make a huge difference.See our list of the 10 healthiest foods to eat here.
Buddy up and Get Some Support
If your goal is to lose weight, the best thing you can do for yourself is to make sure you are supported in your efforts. People who are part of a group working together to lose weight tend to succeed more easily than those who try to do it all alone.
Team up with a friend or family member who has the same goals as you do. Or, go to a web site and find support there. There are a few terrific sites where you can not only get wonderful nutrition information and recipes, but also create a great support system with online friends who are on the same path as you are. Two of the best are eDiets.com and Medifast.
There are many roads to healthy dieting and what works best for one person may not suit another. This site has information about many of the most popular and effective diets around so you can begin to determine which might work for you.
