Tips For A Healthy Lifestyle
As consumers, we see advertisements everywhere that promote new fat burning tools, everything from green coffee bean extract to raspberry ketones. There are so many diets plans available today, all offering the “quick fix” that it can be hard to know which will be best for you. However, there is more to it than just taking a pill, you need to live a healthy lifestyle. Below are a few tips to start when it comes to creating a healthy lifestyle for yourself and your family:
- Eat your fruits and vegetables! We always heard this as a kid, but it is true! Try to make at least half of your plate full of fruits and vegetables.
- Try adding seafood to your diet. Seafood is full of minerals and omega-3 fatty acids (which are good for your heart). Try substituting fish or shellfish as your protein once a week and see how you feel!
- Drink water instead of sugary drinks. Try adding a slice of lemon, lime, or strawberry to your glass of water if you want some flavor.
- Cut your portion size. Try measuring out the suggested serving size when making your plate to see if you are overeating (a lot of times we don’t even realize we are!). If you go out to a restaurant, try eating half of your plate and take the rest to-go.
- Be physically active. Whether you are walking around your neighborhood after work or heading to the gym, try to be active for at least thirty minutes a day.
At watchLAB, we believe that what you put into something, you will get in return. This not only applies to the project you have at work, or participating in your community; but also what you put in your body will affect how you feel inside and out. Being healthy is more than just being on a diet; it is a lifestyle that you need to maintain. If you can stick to these simple tips, you’ll be on your way to a healthier lifestyle and slimmer waistline.
