Don’t pass the salt, please.
You don’t need to add salt to your food, even when cooking. Sensitivity to the absence of salt can vary a lot: some don’t notice it, some actually prefer it, while others find it difficult to go without that extra salt. Even if you’re in the latter category, you really should consider compromising on taste for the sake of your health and longevity, and you’ll probably get accustomed to this way of eating before long anyway. We all know that excessive salt is bad for our hearts, but recent research shows an even greater correlation with elevated blood pressure and heart disease. In reality, it’s very easy to fulfil your daily sodium requirements, and you really don’t need to add salt to anything. Reducing salt intake is also a staple of good weight loss diet plans.
Eat more fiber, less saturated fat
It’s recently been estimated that about a third of cancers could have been prevented by better diet habits. This should illustrate the high importance of making your diet plentiful in fruits and vegetables, which contain nutrients with anti-cancer properties of their own, in addition to a lot of fiber. And like salt, saturated fat is not something you need to worry about getting enough of, as you’ll get enough simply by eating, so you should avoid foods with high saturated fat content like the plague. We also want to note that though margarine is not high in saturated fat, it is definitely not something you want to consume, and will greatly hinder any anti-cancer diet planning. Following the advice presented in this paragraph can grant you the potential to prevent a number of cancers, including those of the stomach, colon, and breast.
One of the best quick weight loss tips: Eat smaller meals, more often.
Despite the longstanding convention of three large meals per day, the practice of eating five or six smaller meals reflects your metabolism far more accurately. Eating in accordance with metabolic requirements is no great secret, but it’s something that we seem to have forgotten in the developed world, and at a heavy price.
Consistent GI consideration
Always remember to think about the glycaemic index value of the food you plan to eat. Eating foods lower on the GI scale means that you’ll have energy for some time to come following your meal, and your insulin levels won’t rise too much at any one time; high insulin levels damage your heart, and increase the chances that some of the calories you consumed will be stored as body fat. Taking GI into account will also boost the effectiveness of any weight loss diet you take on.
