Get Your Diet Back On Track

By Sara Butler

How is your New Year’s resolution to eat healthier coming along? If you’ve fallen off the healthy food wagon, don’t worry! Many people struggle with eating healthy all year long, but there are things you can do to help batten down the hatches and get back on track. Here are some tips to help.

Add Some Beans

When you eat foods such as peas, lentils, and beans, you’re filling up without consuming too many calories. This can help you achieve or maintain a healthy weight since they help you to feel fuller for longer. These foods also happen to be packed with vitamins, fiber, minerals, protein, and antioxidants that help your body to regulate insulin levels and blood sugar, as well as rev up your metabolism. Plus, they’re affordable, easy to find, and very versatile.

Watch Out for Tricky Labels

You’re checking out labels on the foods you like – good for you! But you have to be wary of some of the claims made by food companies in order to make the food seem healthier for you. Don’t get duped by words such as “organic” and “natural,” since those terms are misleading. Foods can be full of salt, sugar, and unhealthy fats that are all technically natural. Just remember the clearer the food label and the shorter the ingredients list, the better the food probably is for you.

Redo Your Routine

If you don’t have a normal dinnertime routine, it’s time you get one. Plan meals ahead of time that are heavy on the vegetables and fruits and eat your meals at around the same time every night. These small strategies can go far to help you get back on track and get back to healthier eating.

Don’t Skip - Meals, That Is!

Your calories need to be distributed evenly throughout the day, so don’t skip meals. If you do skip meals, then you’re more likely to overeat later in the day because you’re so hungry. Plus, you’ll feel justified in eating more than you normally would because you’ve not eaten all day!

You shouldn’t go more than five hours between eating. Eating often and in small amounts will help to keep your body energized and satiated throughout the day. Have a breakfast full of fiber, snacks with a punch of protein, and balanced lunches and dinners with protein and whole grains.
