Tips for a better Nutrition There are many ways to improve your nutrition, here there are four ways recommended by us, we also are going to give tips to a good & healthy nutrition, and how to make a healthy diet daily. The first one is: Eat five times a day, not only three because then your body thinks you are in survival and doesn’t absorb the nutrients it needs and does not get the waste out in time. The second is: to eat fiber because fiber helps our digestion to get rid of waste in less time, something interesting about fiber is that if people will eat just five extra grams of fiber they would need fewer calories for the rest of the day. The third is: eat foods with higher content of water, because water is calorie-free and it fills you up with fewer calories & fat, also it is recommended for you to drink two to
three liters of water daily. The fourth: eat food that is rich in nutrients and fills you up with fewer calories, like: papaya, wild rice, fresh fruits instead of juice, chicken, turkey, salmon, tuna, shrimp and all vegetables and legumes. These are some of the best foods that fill you up with few calories than others.
Here are some tips that can help you to have a better nutrition. Prevent eating the popcorn they sell at the theater because it’s not just with butter it has been soiled in many other fatty oils. Another good tip is to eat the colors of the rainbow in your veggies, because it is assured that it gives enough nutrients to your body, even if you are a vegetarian you can get all your nutrients from the vegetables. Try to eat the portions of each food group in the “my plate”, because it is a very healthy and balanced diet, you can also follow the food pyramid but the “my plate” is more accurate. Try these tips and recommendations and you’ll notice the difference. Another way to have a healthier diet is to eat less fast food, because it has lots of fat and calories. If you don’t burn the calories you consumed eating the fast food you can get obese and have probability to have heart disease. Fatty foods have more fat than food rich in proteins and carbohydrates. It’s better to eat dairy products( yogurt, cheese, milk) that are fat-free. If you don’t eat too much fat you’ll have a better life.
You should eat proteins because they help to the repair and growth of the body. Protein include: meats, beans and nuts (make sure that if they are meat, they are just lean meat). Calcium helps to grow bones and repair. Some foods that contain calcium are: dairy products, broccoli, almonds, sardines and okra (cooked). Another good mineral is Iron because it helps the body structure and if you donâ€™t eat enough of it you can get anemia. Some products that contain Iron are: chicken, some beans, dark chocolate & cocoa powder, and tofu.
