You may not think you have time to implement an whole new diet plan. Two good bits of news for you, though – One, you should never try to do a complete diet turn around over night.
This will normally not produce a long term state of mind. Two, there are plenty of small steps you can take that get you on the path to a healthier lifestyle, resulting in weight loss and overall better health.
The first tip is to begin your dieting before you ever think about eating a single bite.
This means being in the right frame of mind when you are at the grocery store. You are faced with literally hundreds of decisions before it’s time to eat. We found a wonderful list of foods that fight which you can add to your shopping list, and here are some my favorites!
Breakfast: Original Shredded Wheat: 80 calories and 2.5 g fiber per biscuit
Frozen, yummy treats: Frozen bars: Creamsicles, Fudgsicles, and Popsicles; any others
Comforting drinks with winter time approaching: Hot cocoa mixes: 20 to 50 calories per serving (you can choose Swiss Miss Diet & Fat-Free or Nestle Carnation Diet & Fat-Free
Of course, you probably aren’t going to be up for switching out a ton of your favorite foods for foods that are included on the complete list. You don’t have to!
Every little change you make for the better will have you one step closer to a healthier diet. A healthy diet is a vital part of any weight loss routine.
In fact, the number one suggestion in 100 smartest diet tips by Prevention magazine was to simply add one fruit or vegetable to your diet each day.
One single fruit or vegetable! You can then slowly keep adding to that until you reach the recommended servings of at least eight per day.
