Eating healthy it is not an easy thing to do. Nowadays, it is common to see a lot of fast foods, and other industrial meals, crowding the shelves in supermarkets and consequently our homes. Prioritizing green and natural food sometimes can be a challenge. But if you are trying to lead a healthier life, here are a few ways to improve and pump up your diet to reach better results.

The food choices you make has the power to change other essential parts of our lives, such as work, relationships, and emotional wellbeing. A Guide published by Harvard shows that when you eat a healthy and moderate lunch (feeling satisfied at the end but not stuffed), you eat less during the day, jumpstart your metabolism and keep your energy throughout the day.

If you’re wondering what type of breakfast is best for you, use Lifesum to find some recipes and tips! You can also find a few directions to eat better and lose weight or reach any other diet-related goal you might have.

After starting your day with a great meal, remember that our body is a perfect machine that needs the right quantity of protein, vitamins, minerals, even carbos, and fat. The Harvard Guide, recommends that rather than eliminating specific categories of food, opt for healthiest options from each group. Preparing your meals at home is also a good idea. Then you know exactly what you are putting in your body, and you can pick the best ingredients to prepare it.

For example, it is recommended for women to ingest 25g of fiber per day, and for men the recommendation is 38g. Some groups of foods are naturally rich in fiber, and you can find it in beans, nuts, and vegetables. With the right choices, you will see results quicker than you might think!

To make the most of your diet, remember of drink a lot of water. Our body is made up of at least 70% water, and during a day we lose at least two litters, so water must be the principal thing during all your day. When your body works well, weight loss can increase, as well as your performance during exercise. Try to consume at least the two litters you lose during the day.

With Lifesum, tracking your healthy habits (and the not so healthy ones) becomes a breeze. We’ll help you pick the right food, and eat the right portion sizes, to reach your personal health goals.
