First of all, you need to add a lot more plant fiber into your diet than you normally would. You can do this by eating more raw fruits and vegetables, or buying products such as leafy greens, beans, yogurt and the like. Be sure that you never buy “green” yogurt from the grocery store, because they already contain a lot of plant protein. It is usually more convenient to buy whole foods that you know that you should eat, rather than those that you might be unfamiliar with. You can always start eating a diet using alternatives.
Secondly, get rid of any foods in your refrigerator that are filled with high calorie, low quality fat and low fiber. This includes a lot of meats, dairy products and processed foods. Instead, focus on eating more healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains, and make sure that you eat a balanced diet. If you are on a low calorie diet then you should replace some of your junk food with some “good” carbs, such as broccoli, brown rice, etc.
Thirdly, use alternative sweeteners such as agave nectar, maple syrup, honey and the like. The advantage of using these alternatives over sugary sweets is that they are more beneficial for your health. Instead of eating tons of cookies and other kinds of sweets, you can eat more leafy greens and other healthy vegetables. You also don’t have to worry about adding sugar to your diet, because there are many healthy alternatives available.
Fourth, keep your calorie intake balanced. While it is recommended that you eat several small meals each day, you should make sure that you don’t consume too many large meals. If you consume too many calories at one time, your body will use all of it and will store it as fat. Also, avoid consuming large portions of food at once, especially foods that are rich in calories such as cakes and candies. This will help keep your nutritional needs balanced and will prevent you from eating too much and storing it as fat.
Fifth, drink lots of water. Water should be your beverage of choice and should make up a large part of your diet. Water helps to dilute the sugar in your diet, which can lead to bingeing and overeating. Moreover, drinking lots of water will help flush out toxins from your body and keep your digestive tract clean. You should try drinking non-caffeinated fruit juice as well, since caffeine can keep you up at night. With these dietary guidelines, you can ensure that your body gets all the nutrients it needs and that you maintain a healthy and balanced weight.
