  • The Guidelines for a Healthy Diet By: Alec Hewett
  • Eating healthy will benefit you in many ways Keep your overall body healthy Gives you energy Benefits how you look Gives you strong bones Keeps your muscles healthy Ultimately, by eating healthy it will keep you away from the Doctors office.
  • Healthy Tips Try not to think of food as “off limits.” No matter what, you are going to eat the food that looks the best to you. So instead of trying not to eat a certain type of food, limit it by portion size. An easy way of limiting portion size is, pre-pack your food before you plan on eating it. Make a zip-lock bag of chips, cookies, etc. and then when you are finished with the bag, do not go back for more.
  • I usually skip breakfast. It’s not important right? Wrong!!! Even though you may be in a hurry, you can not skip breakfast. BREAKFAST IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY. By eating breakfast it can jumpstart your metabolism. If you skip this meal, you will be tired and lethargic throughout the day. Eat breakfast and it will help wake you up. Not a pop and granola bar!
  • Fruits and Vegetables  Fruits and Vegetables are some of the most important foods you can eat.  Anything that can be grown from a ground or tree is a good rule of thumb when trying to find out if it is healthy enough for you.  The more “green” you see on your plate, the better.  Most people often cut the skins off the vegetables but if you leave those on, it is more healthy for you.  Greens are a great source of vitamins.
  • Proteins Proteins are a great source of energy. Proteins not only give you the energy when you don’t have any but also allow you to keep going. Lack of Proteins can cause your growth to slow. Another reason why you should get the right amount of Proteins in is because if you don’t you will have a loss of muscle mass.
  • Whole Grains Eating whole grains is very important. There are many studies that show by just eating whole grains, it will allow you to have a healthier heart. If you do not like whole grains, incorporate them slowly. Examples of whole grains include, brown rice or wheat pasta. Pasta is a great way to get whole grains.
  • Different Types of FatsThere are two main types of fats.One of them is Saturated Fats. These would be found primarily in animal sources including red meat.The other main type of fat is called Trans Fat. These types of fats could be found in shortenings, margarines, and also in junk food.
  • Review Don’t avoid foods all together. Just limit your intake. Eat as much “green” as possible. Proteins will give you energy. Eat three meals a day. Always eat Breakfast! Try and stay away from fats as much as possible. Eating healthy is a great way to keep you away from the doctor.
