Über Talk: 10 Tips To Sensible Snacking!
Every day we are surrounded by ads that tell us that what we are eating is “fatty,” “full of sugar” or just plain “Bad!” In particular, women face the most pressure to maintain healthy and perfect lifestyles in order to keep control of those figures! This often leads to failed diets and feelings of being deprived of food that we actually need. Now, Marcia Reynolds, author of Wander Woman: How High-Achieving Women Find Contentment and Direction, has cancelled out the nonsense and given women a new perspective on healthy eating—the sensible way!
10 Easy things to remember when deciding what eat:
1.Eat what you love. All foods can fit into a healthy diet using the common sense principles of balance, variety, and moderation to guide your eating.
2.Love what you eat. Slow down and eat mindfully, without distractions.
3.Value quality over quantity.
4.Small, sustainable improvements in your eating are more effective than a drastic, temporary overhaul.
5.Use nutrition information as a tool, not a weapon.
6.Choose the healthiest option that won't leave you feeling deprived.
7.Don't expect yourself to eat perfectly -- it's not possible or even necessary.
8.When guilt is no longer a factor, common sense will prevail.
9.Accept that you'll sometimes regret the choices you make. Learn from your experiences.
10.Exercise for healthy and energy, not to earn the right to eat or pay penance for eating a "bad food."
