What To Eat, Where To Eat, How To Eat: 10 Easy Steps

clock with hands that are made of fork and knife(BlackDoctor.org) — There are a lot of healthy foods that can help you lose the weight you want and keep it off.  Here are the ten simple healthy eating habits:

1. What to eat – No magic food causes weight loss and no food is inherently fattening. Eat a variety of foods from meat, legumes, dairy, grains, fruits, vegetables and small amount of fat daily. Vegetables and fruits are a great source of vitamins and minerals. Carbohydrates in fruits, milk, grains and legumes will give you quick energy for the first 2 hours while protein in milk, meat and legumes will keep you satisfied for 4 hours. The fat in meat and milk as well as fat added to foods will keep you satisfied for 6 hours.

2. Where to eat – Eliminate eating in the car, bus, train, walking, standing or on the phone. Make time to eat meals and snacks by sitting down at a table. Read about the dangers of driving and eating.

3. When to eat – Eat breakfast and two other meals each day. People who eat breakfast are less likely to snack in the evening. Eat at least every 4 to 6 hours when awake rather than waiting until your stomach starts growling.

4. How much to eat – Calories count. Choose smaller portion sizes. Forget those super sizes as they are expensive to your waistline.
