Eating healthy is important thing to do in life, to put ourselves at less risk of having serious heath problems, like, say a heart attack. In this instuctable, ill teach you the basics of eating healthy (or healthier).
Step 1: Take baby steps
What do you eat? a PLAIN cheeseburger, and a COKE? If your just starting to eat healthier, take baby steps, like getting that cheeseburger with lettuce and tomatoes, and instead of the coke, get water or juice. OR, dont go out to eat and make your self a healthy sandwich and water. see, baby steps are what will train you for the big stuff up ahead.
Step 2: Take a look at the food pyramid
the food pyramid will guide you to eat healthier, since it tells you all the main food groups. Remember, also important: exercise.
Step 3: Try to aviod man made chemicals and processed foods.
These things can lead to even more unhealthiness. Take Splenda for example, it's some nasty stuff, used as a sugar substitute, like in sugar free drinks, but its just a even unhealthier chemical. processed foods are just plain unhealthy.
Step 4: If you need sugar, get.....
organic cane sugar, and not splenda or sugar substitutes, which is even more unhealthy than regular sugar.
Step 5: Whole wheats and grains rule!
Thats right they do. try to get them instead of those processed bleached foods. For example, get whole wheat bread instead of white, which is bleached.
Step 6: The best diet
Here's a diet to follow: low fat, low sugar, low sodium and low carbs. doing this will result in good results, and is better than any of those tv diet programs.
Step 7: Healthy drinks
instead of that coke, why not drink water? water is basicly nothing, which is good. If leaping to water instantly is hard, try carbonated juice, or regular juice (organic ones are the best). the best drink? Got milk?
Step 8: Eat at moderation
insted of eating 3 VERY large meals, try several small frequent meals, which will spread out digestaion, blood sugar levels,and was shown to be very healthy.
Step 9: Fruits and veggies = important!
Eat them A LOT. they are one of the most important things on this list, thats why it has its own step.
Step 10: Congrats!
follow all of these step, and you will be healthier in the long-run! bye!
