We’ve all been there before. You make a promise to yourself on New Years’. “I’m going to be healthier this year,” you think. But one way or another, that promise never seems to hold up. Without the right know-how, changing the way you eat and the way you treat your body can be a bit of a struggle. But with a few easy tricks, you can make it happen. If you’ve been keeping up with our blog posts, you might remember a few of the hints and tricks we’ve shared about how to achieve a healthier diet. Here are 3 of our many suggestions you can use to keep your 2021 New Year’s resolution.
Portions are everything. After all, how much you eat correlates to your calorie intake. When you have a big plate, filling it up is your first instinct. At that point, what you’re eating doesn’t matter that much. Too much of a good thing is a bad thing. It’s as simple as that. An easy solution? Use a smaller plate. You can fill it up with healthy foods and never feel guilty about it. It’s the easiest way to cut your calorie intake and keep a steady diet casually.
Greens in every meal!
Veggies are full of vitamins that are great for your body. It’s fair to say most people prefer not to eat them, though. That’s why we tend to avoid them when possible. However, we all know eating the green stuff is ideal when you’re on a diet. So how can you fit them into your daily diet without making yourself miserable? Try to have some veggies in every meal. Add some peppers and onions to your omelet. Have a side salad instead of fries when you go out to lunch. Cook up some asparagus alongside the hamburgers when you have a grill out for dinner. This option takes a little effort, but it’s easier than eating a salad for every meal.
The little things make significant differences over time. That’s sort of the running theme for this blog post. Fried snacks and foods taste amazing, but they aren’t great for you or your diet. Alternatives are the answer. Instead of salt and vinegar potato chips, go for reduced-fat chips or pretzels. Get a grilled chicken sandwich instead of a fried one. I think you get the idea!
