7 Habits of People Who Eat a Healthy Diet

Whether you’re looking to improve your fitness, lose weight or simply lead a healthier lifestyle, there’s one thing that you will have no trouble doing.

Getting advice on how to eat a healthy diet. It’ll come from every possible direction.

Indeed, there’s a good argument to be made for getting as much information as you can about eating healthily. It might be a big change from your usual diet. But the problem with advice about eating a healthy diet is that a lot of it can be contradictory.

Depending on where your advice comes from, you should ditch the carbs, eat more carbs; cut out all the fat, eat mostly fat; count calories, stop counting calories; and, well, you’ve been there, you know what we mean.

But there’s one thing that most healthy eating advice fails to consider. Your eating habits are just that, habits. It’s one thing to know that you need to eat healthier foods, and which ones will work best for you. But that doesn’t help you change your eating habits.

And many of those habits can counteract the benefits of your healthy eating.

7 Healthy Eating Habits

When you combine healthy foods with healthy eating habits, you get a one-two punch that improves your chances of reaching your health and wellness goals.

Get into an Eating Routine

Eating at roughly the same times each day gets you into an eating rhythm. It makes it easier to focus on what you eat. It eliminates meal skipping, which can backfire. And it reveals the times when you might eat mindlessly, like mid-morning nibbling if you skip breakfast.

Use Portion Control

Portion control helps you avoid two seriously bad eating habits: eating an unbalanced diet and overeating. Even if you’re eating the healthiest foods, these two can derail your efforts. Aim for 50% carbs, 30% protein and 20% fats. And if you’re not happy unless you plate is overflowing, use a smaller plate.

Slow Down Your Eating

If you’re always the first one finished your meal, you need to slow down your eating. It takes about 20 minutes for your brain to get the signal that your stomach is full. The more you stuff yourself in that time, the worse the problem.

Snack Healthily

It’s a mistake to think that, if your regular meals are healthy, you can go to town at snack time. Not only are healthy snacks more nutritious, they fill you up more so you eat less.

Don’t Eat in Front of the TV or Computer

When you’re not focused on what you’re eating, it’s easier to overeat.

Work the Spice Rack

A problem many people face is the blandness they perceive in healthy foods. This is especially true after they give up fatty, salty and sugary processed foods. Start adding spices, olive oil and garlic to healthy meals for new taste sensations.

Drink More Water

Drinking water throughout the day is a healthy habitat for many reasons. It’s especially helpful before a meal or when you’re “so hungry you could eat a horse”.

Still, even when you know what healthy eating habits you need to adopt, it doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy. That is, unless you let FitFood help you. We’ll prepare balanced, healthy meals and snacks for your entire day, in the right portions, from fresh, delicious ingredients, just for you. Oh yeah, and deliver them to your door too. Boom, one phone call and you’re instantly eating a healthy, balanced diet.

And when it comes to our Buddha Bowl with South Asian Chicken, we bet you’ll want as much as you can get.
