5 Healthy Eating Habits
Posted on November 10 2017
These eating habits will help you lose weight and keep it off. You’ll boost your overall fitness, you'll slim down, tone up, and shape up for good.
1. They Stick to the Same menu
The majority of fit people say they eat virtually the same meals every day, mostly the same breakfast, same lunch, same dinner, and when it comes to snacks and beverages . . . well, you guessed it, very predictable food.
2. They Eat Breakfast
This one common characteristic is nearly universal in statistical studies of people who have achieved and maintained a large weight loss. Eighty percent of those who have been able to maintain a weight loss of at least 30 pounds for at least a year report that they always eat breakfast.
3. They Drink Water
Highly successful fit people drink at least six to eight 12-ounce glasses of water a day, plus more as needed during exercise.
4. Eat Small, and Often
Most people know that small, frequent meals are absolutely the only way to go. Why? Because when we go longer than 3 hours without eating, our levels of the stress hormone cortisol rise. And high cortisol levels signal the body to store fat in the abdominal region.
5. Know Your Foods
This characteristic is truly universal among fit people: They know, generally speaking, every food's calories and approximate protein, carbohydrate, and fat content.
