Food makes us happy, satisfied, healthy but most of the time fat and unhealthy. It is hard to control our unhealthy habits like “always” eating fatty food and sweets. After school and work, we tend to indulge ourselves in fast food restaurants because it is the only easy way to pamper ourselves after a long and stressful day. And that’s what makes it harder to avoid these unhealthy treats. It helps us survive the daily mental torture thus food will always be our friend.
There is nothing wrong with eating fast food or sweets for as long as we take everything in moderation. But sadly, most of us can’t that is why in the end we feel guilty about it when we see changes in our body and health.
So what is the secret to being healthy and fit?
It’s actually not a secret, we know almost everything about diet and exercise programs, but we are just too lazy or unmotivated to do it. But whenever we see celebrities on TV or friends who are enjoying their vacations while flaunting their “summer bods”, we tend to envy them. Instead of being like them, we just eat more and more because it makes you more discouraged just by thinking that you can never be like them or you can never have that kind of body or whatsoever.
This year, we will try to change how you think about physical health and fitness. In this article, we will give you tips on how to eat less fatty food and sweet. No, it is not a diet program, and you don’t need to hire a nutritionist for this.
Don’t worry because these tips are surprisingly simple and easy. No sweat!
- Never go to grocery stores when hungry
Have you tried shopping for groceries on an empty stomach? I’m sure you grabbed a lot of treats because everything just looks good when you are hungry. This is actually not a good idea because you are more tempted to buy high-calorie foods. So the next time you plan on going to grocery malls make sure you are full.
- Make a list for grocery shopping
What’s good about shopping lists is you will make everything on the list as priorities. What happens when you don’t have a list is you tend to buy unnecessary treats just because you saw one. In this way, you will not have the time to go to the ice cream station because ice cream is not on the list. See? Simple but makes sense.
- Use smaller or light weight plates when eating
When you are eating in a light weight plate, you can notice right away if you have put too much food on it because it will feel heavy. While smaller plates also can make you eat less because there is not enough space for excessive food. That’s it!
And one last tip, if you are too lazy or busy to go to gyms, you may want to start investing in a home gym. You can convert your useless lofts to something more useful and functional this year.
