What makes a Healthy Diet?
Today there are so many diets out there. Which one is the right one for you? Some seem easy, not as hard as others. Perhaps you feel it’s too restrictive and some you definitely would not even consider.
Studies have found the most beneficial diets include the Mediterranean Diet, The Paleo (or Ancestral) Diet and the Low Carb, Low Fat Diet.
Then the others, made up of specific foods, like Low Glycemic Index Diet, Anti-Inflammatory Diet or Raw Food Diet and many others.
Actually, there is a common thread among all of these “diets”; all the major points say the same. Cut out processed food, decrease sugars, fats and simple carbohydrates. Increase fresh organic vegetables and fruits. Lean meats the size of a deck of cards per serving.
All diets mention the use of superfoods, food that is low calorie but nutrient dense like kale, blueberries, apples or beets.
Here are suggestions to start a healthy diet:
Use filtered water, drink plenty every day.
Drink freshly pressed juices if preferred over eating the vegetable, organic if you can.
Chew food very well; eat only twice daily if you can.
Foods can include herbs like; milk thistle, turmeric, orange or yellow vegetables and soluble fiber which help organs function better especially the liver.
You can include prebiotics and probiotics to boost the Digestive system.
Remember to eat in moderation!
Decrease stress on your system so your body will respond better. So whatever diet you want to follow can work, just follow the above major points as the main concept.
All of these suggestions will help you feel better, lose some weight and become healthier.
