Living The Right Way So You Can Live Longer
Developing good nutritional habits is a continuous process. Every day we face a multitude of choices about what to eat. Nutrition is the execise of developing knowledge about food and making informed decisions. It is not only about what to eat, but also timing meals in a way that they affect your body in positive ways. The more you know, the better and more satisfying your strategy will be. Read on for some practical advice.
In order to help children meet their optimal nutritional needs, try to give meals and snacks on a regular schedule. This helps their bodies to know when to expect the next meal, and regulates their hunger signals. Also, if they fill up on snacks just before mealtimes, they will not be hungry for the “real” foods at that meal.
Most of us have a “sweet tooth” that needs to be satisfied. How we satisfy it, has great importance for our health. Refined sugars, which is found in many processed foods, ,are detrimental to our health. Vegetables such as carrots, beets and winter squash are naturally high in sugar and are healthy. For the intense sweet taste that we sometimes crave, honey and maple syrup are recommended.
Foods such as baked potatoes, whole-wheat pasta, brown rice, oatmeal, whole grain breads, and bananas will boost your “feel-good” serotonin levels without a crash. They also provide plenty of fiber, so you feel full much longer. Eating junk food will provide a sugar high, but it will be followed by a crash. Get rid of the junk food and focus on healthy eating, your body will thank you.
Practicing good nutrition is not an exact science. Human nature dictates that you won’t be able to make perfect choices about food one hundred precent of the time. Throwing a curve ball into your nutrition plan will help to suprise your body and boost your metabolism. Aim for success 95% of the time and you will reach your goals without compromising your sanity. And put into practice what we preach in this article.
