Why Fruit Needs To Be One Of Your Food Choices

Fruits are one of the healthiest foods you can consume. Your exact fruit intake per day should be at least 2 cups. Varying your selection makes it easier and a more interesting task.

If thats too hard…

An alternative to eating physical fruits is to increase or include a variety of fruit juices. While fruit juices are a good substitution it is very important to not over indulge!

Food Choices To Consider When Consuming Meats

Fresh meat is the primary source for protein. Portion control is the problem that most people have.

Eating meat in moderation and controlled portioning is key to keeping your weight under control and eating healthy. A typical portion depending on your calorie intake is 4 to 5 ounces and it is important for the meat to be as lean as possible.

The way you cook the meat also plays a huge part in making your meal decisions. By grilling, broiling, or baking the meat a majority of the grease will be drained away.

If you prefer not to eat beef, pork or chicken it is ok to substitute with such foods as nuts, fish and beans. By substituting those foods you will still be making a healthy food choice and getting the necessary proteins.

Things You Need To Know About Milk Products When Making Food Choices

At a young age (Children) calcium is needed to strengthen their bones but when we reach the adult ages we still need calcium to stay healthy. In our adult age a lot of us have issues with lactose intolerance so we tend to eliminate a lot of dairy products.

The solution to consuming dairy products while being lactose intolerant and still getting the necessary calcium content, you can substitute regular milk for soy products.

Another good way to contribute to making healthier food choices when it comes to dairy is by using dairy products which have little to no fat in them. Yogurt is a great alternative for getting calcium and helping lose weight.

Should Vegetables Be A Food Choice?

Hands down, consuming vegetables are at the top of the list for healthy food choices and great for weight control. They pack a lot of nutritional value and contain the vitamins the body needs to function.

Consumption of vegetables plays a huge roll in reducing the chances of being affected by various chronic diseases and cancers…

  • Diabetes Type 2
  • Obesity
  • High Blood Pressure
  • kidney Stones
  • Bone Loss

Whole Grains That Matter

In order to keep a well balanced healthy diet you should include at least 6 ounces of grains.

Whole grain cereals and bread are excellent choices these days as they are much tastier and are easily accessed.

Another good idea would be to mix fruits in with your grains to add flavor and variety.

For bread lovers, as you may have already guessed, whole grain bread is also an excellent option for meeting your whole grain needs. There are a variety of tasty whole grain breads available to choose from but remember, moderation is key as bread contributes to weight gain.

EXTRA TIP Just For YOU

Stay away from foods that contain a large percentage of trans fats, increased levels of sodium and saturated fats. A good way to do this is to simply take a second and pay close attention to the ingredients on the labels of the container or packaging.

Portion size in any food choice plays a vital role in your health and weight loss.
