Things That Are Healthy And Don’t Feel Like Dieting
Dieting is not an easy way to lose weight, even if it is sometimes necessary. Instead of trying to deprive yourself with the diet mindset, why not instead use these quick tips to make your lifestyle more healthy without feeling like you are living on a diet.
Hopefully these healthy ideas will help you to think about food, eating and dieting in a completely different (and better) way.
Have A Really Big Bowl Salad
One key to dieting is sticking to portion sizes. A bowl of past can be healthy but if you eat twice what you should you will gain weight in a bad way.
Making a really big bowl of salad, full of seasonal items and lightly dressed with an olive oil based sauce is a great way to appese your appetite. You can pick at this as much as you like because try as you might, it is really difficult to over eat on salad.
Eat Natural Foods
Rather than worrying about calories (a sure way to give yourself that ‘diet’ feeling), why not just think about ingredients.
Eating only things with natural ingredients is great fun and it feels good because you know that it is healthy.
So when you buy foods, look at the label and see what the ingredients are, if it is full of fruit and veg that’s good, if it’s full of things that begin with E or end in ‘ose’ it’s probably not.
A Lifestyle Without Restrictions
In our modern society we have a habit of obeying our appetite and not just our hunger. If you can learn to listen to your hunger instead you will find that your body is very good at knowing what it needs.
If you can train yourself to do this you will find that your appetite is not so big and only pipes up when it should; the result is that you will eat healthily and in good portions because you want to not because you think you should.
Discover The Kitchen
This follows on from the point about natural ingredients. The best way to enjoy natural food is to prepare it yourself. Stop buying ready meals and get cooking. Avoid high fat and processed ingredients and discover what you can do with fresh veg – you might be amazed at the results.

You see, most of eating healthily is common sense. Our ancient ancestors never dieted, they just ate exactly the right things; the things that nature provided. It’s simple and it’s good.
