Nutritional Tips to Be Well Inside and Out

Adriana Oroz gives us ten tips to be well inside and out to guide us towards nutritional well-being.

Don’t start a diet that will end one day, start a lifestyle that will last forever. Look for a healthy and balanced diet and lifestyle according to your tastes, habits, lifestyle and goals. In this way you will ensure that it is a long-lasting diet.

Take some time to take care of your diet. The pace of life we ​​currently have makes us not spend much time or pay attention to what we eat. What consequences does it bring us? Compromise health, by consuming fast food or unhealthy foods with greater preference and frequency. Sit down to plan your own eating plan. If you know what to eat, you will know what to buy and it will be easier for you to stick to it.

Go to the market and buy fresh produce. Set aside one hour a week to go to the market to buy seasonal products. Skip the calculation of the total calories you consume. Food not only feeds us but nourishes us. You should think of food as a set of nutrients that are going to help the body function properly. So, focus on choosing foods of good nutritional quality.

Join the method.  I advise you to keep in mind the method of the plate that will help you ensure that they are balanced, several and limit quantities. Always give preference, with half of your plate, to both raw and cooked vegetables. With salads, the amount eaten is usually not enough, so you should also not forget to also consume vegetables. A quarter of a plate should be protein in the form of eggs, meat, fish, shellfish, vegetable protein, or legumes. The other quarter of a plate should be made up of carbohydrates such as pasta, rice, potatoes or bread. The dessert can be a piece of fruit or a dairy dessert.

Balanced diet and exercise, the perfect tandem. Mark it on the calendar, insert it into your daily routine, so that the excuses of our day-to-day life can’t handle it. The practice of physical exercise on a regular basis will help you improve your physical form and your health. In addition, it generates endorphins and provides well-being. Find a sport that you like that you enjoy and that you find easy to incorporate into your day-to-day life.

Enjoy your food. Food is still one of the greatest pleasures we have, so you can also enjoy eating healthy. If there are foods you don’t like, nothing happens. Focus on those foods that you can eat, that you like, in this wide range of possibilities that you have and not in that great minority that you must limit. Dare to try new foods, combinations that allow you not only to eat well, but also to enjoy it.

If you’re on a diet, don’t overdo it. Can you have a perfect diet? Is life? Are we? Of course not, so we should not require ourselves to do everything perfect. If so, you will not value the small advances or improvements you make in your areas and at the minimum, you will feel frustrated and unmotivated. It is not a perfect diet that you should achieve, but a healthy and balanced behavior and lifestyle.

Improve your environment. Clean out the pantry. The presence of healthy foods at home increases the chance of success. It could be said that it is a determining factor of success in the short and long term. If you have nothing prepared and you have to improvise, having unhealthy foods in your pantry or fridge will make it difficult for you to eat well or eat what you had in mind.

Eat mindfully. In a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Being aware of what you are going to eat, and spending time will help you maintain long-term habits, reduce your possible compulsive and emotional eating. It will help you improve your ability to control food.

 Bring out the chef inside you. Do you like to cook? Why not sign up for a cooking course to be able to get more out of your food? In this way, in addition to being able to meet people with the same interests as you, you will be able to learn new ways of cooking, new technologies, new delicious, simple and, without a doubt, healthy options.
