Healthy eating helps to lose weight and provide energy, improves mood and reduces the risk of various diseases. Starting a healthy diet can be difficult.
Check your progress
Writing down the foods you eat in something like a diary or using apps for this will help you maintain a healthy diet and lose weight. Also, measuring the amount of exercise you do is also effective in increasing motivation and continuing the diet. In a study conducted on overweight women, it was observed that those who use a pedometer lose 6 times more weight than others in a period of 3 months.
Take your wife with you
Having a healthy diet and exercising alone is hard work. Having a partner in nutritional changes and exercise can be very effective, especially if that person is your fiance or spouse.
By analyzing the data of 3000 couples, the researchers observed that when one of the couples makes positive changes in his lifestyle, for example, includes exercise in his schedule, the probability of making positive changes in his life partner also increases.
You are probably familiar with the benefits of breakfast for health and weight control. If your first meal of the day is balanced and contains a sufficient amount of protein, the probability of stable blood sugar and not overeating during the rest of the day increases. In a study, it was found that overweight women who consumed 30 grams of protein at breakfast felt more full and ate fewer calories at lunch than other women.
Remember, you need time to change a habit
Don’t get discouraged if it takes longer than you expect to change your lifestyle habits. Researchers have found that it takes an average of 66 days to transform a new behavior into a habit. So continue on your way until eventually healthy eating and exercise will automatically become your habit.
Find the method that works best for you
There is no one way of eating that is consistently best for everyone. You should be able to find the best way to eat and exercise for yourself. In fact, the best diet for you is a diet that you can continue in the long term.
