Over the years, achieving healthy living has evolved from a strict diet and rigorous training and exercise. These days, healthy living can be that which brings balance to a person's emotional, mental, and physical health; it can be enriching social movements that contribute to world health; or it can be that which deals solely on practicality, sustainability, and maintenance.
Drastic changes are not things that necessarily happen overnight, especially when shifting to a healthier lifestyle. Practicing small steps is better on the long run, before eventually making more radical choices.
Here are three easy steps to jumpstart your journey towards a healthy lifestyle.
Eat right and eat regularly
Taking it slow means going back to primary habits and perfecting it. You will notice that as one gets older, the three major meals breakfast, lunch, and dinner, are getting neglected or traded off over time.
This step simply asks that you do not skip meals and then ''make up for it'' by food bulking on the next one. While this disrupts metabolism and acid levels in the stomach, it also decreases the fat-burning potential of the body.
The key is to eat small, balanced meals every 3-5 hours. Breakfast, referred by nutritionists and dieticians as the ''most important meal of the day'' must be taken 30 minutes to 2 hours after waking up. While dinner is strongly recommended to be taken before 7:00 pm.
Maintain a healthy weight
Assess your Body Mass Index (BMI) from time to time. While a normal weight (BMI of 18-25) alone does not be the result of a perfectly wholesome lifestyle, it is a good place to start.
To maintain a healthy weight, avoid food that are full of fat, cholesterol, or high in sugar and salt content. Anchored to this is the system of always checking the label and nutrition facts. Once you commit to doing this, you build a sense of awareness in what you choose to consume, thereby making it easier to adjust to stricter diet plans.
Other activities such as exercise routines which require a more extensive approach, may follow once this very simple step is followed.
Identify healthy and sustainable food options
When pursuing a healthy lifestyle, people usually have difficulties sticking to it, along with maintaining the lifestyle's tendency of being extremely expensive.
However, if you look carefully, there are food options that deliver the same amount of nutrients without all the health-compromising ingredients such as preservatives, while still being pocket-friendly.
