9 Basic Rules of Healthy Eating

Eating in a healthy manner is crucial to one’s longterm health goals. For many, eating healthy is not always easy and consequently, eating balanced meals may not be on option. Many complain that it is just too confusing or hard to know what to focus on when it comes to eating healthy and it would make life easier to have some basic rules of the health road to follow when deciding on what exactly to eat. We are constantly bombarded with new health claims and a list of diet names: Raw, Paleo, Atkins, High-Fat, Low-Fat, Mediterranean, Vegetarian, etc.

Here are 9 basic rules if you want to eat healthy:

  1. Avoid sugar. Yes, it requires willpower to reduce and avoid your daily sugar intake. Sugar has been linked to many diseases, it affects your insulin production, feeds cancer cells, attributes to weight gain, addictive eating and provides false sense of energy.
  2. Avoid trans-saturated fats. Trans-saturated fats has been shown to raise your bad cholesterol levels aka LDL, lower your good cholesterol levels aka HDL, cause heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and increase the risk of Alzheimer’s, cancer, and infertility. The most common sources of trans fats: fast foods, fried foods, conventional snack foods like chips, cookies, doughnuts and pastries.
  3. Avoid simple carbohydrate load as it will give you a false spike of energy then let you down. Choose nutrient rich foods instead.
  4. Avoid the top inflammatory-allergen foods: gluten, wheat, dairy, corn, soy.
  5. Avoid eating when stressed as the digestive process slows down and you may fall into an emotional eating binge as opposed to eating for nourishment.
  6. Avoid deciding to eat when you are starving; instead plan out your meal timing.
  7. Drink pure water as your body needs it and it’s the best source of hydration.
  8. Eat lean protein to keep your energy levels and blood sugar levels at optimal health.
  9. Reinvent your vegetable intake and make it exciting and new. Thinking out of the box can turn a boring vegetable into a tasty enjoyable and desirable meal. Grill, bake, pan-fry your veggies rubbing olive oil (optional) and same organic spices on the vegetable turns the most boring vegetable into a tantalizing treat.
