If you are looking to make one simple change to benefit your health, focus in on your diet. It is one of the quickest, simplest, and easiest lifestyle change to make.
Start gradually when considering changing your diet. We’re not talking about eliminating food groups radically. We’re just talking about taking the diet habits you already have and modifying them a little bit. Examine what it is you are eating and see what you should cut back on. For example, sugar-sweetened beverage or artificially sweetened beverages are an easy way to start.
Another simple change is to inspect your pantry. Read the labels on your food and determine which items are good for you. Make a decision stop buying the least healthy food item you find.
If you want a bonus “one simple change”, think outside the box! Real food doesn’t come in a box or a package. Instead, opt for fresh and unprocessed foods.
Diet should never be a short-term proposition. Diet simply means what you eat. That’s going to be a long-term proposition no matter how you dice it. A person can lose 5% to 10% of their weight relatively quickly, but statistics prove that 90% of people who go on radical diets gain back any weight they’ve lost (and sometimes even more) within four to five years. Diets don’t have to be the trendy. You can just make simple changes that are healthy for you and – most importantly – sustainable.
In order to feel well, we all must eat well consistently. Put good in to get good out.
