None of these ways to eat healthy require a drastic diet, eliminating entire food groups, or fueling up within a restricted window. These simple and healthy eating tips are ones you can stick with for life.
Eat More Fruits And Vegetables
Odds are you love carbs as much as the next person (same!). But research shows that eating a rainbow of fruits and veggies provides a boon of benefits, including protection against cancer, heart disease, and the effects of aging—something that probably couldn’t be said for devouring copious amounts of shawarma. And that’s not all. Science also says eating lots of fruits and veggies can make you happier.
Limit Liquid Calories
Soda is essentially sugar water, which packs a caloric punch. Diet soda, though clocking zero calories, also tallies zero nutritional value. And smoothies and fruit juice, though healthier than soda, packs about the same number of calories. (If you’re craving fruit, go with whole fruit instead, which has fiber to keep you full.)
The healthiest choice? Opt for water. Eight glasses are recommended per day, but if you hate drinking plain water, pick up flavored water or flavored seltzer. Unsweetened tea and coffee are good runners-up.
