Diet Tips That Work for Everyone

Diet Changes That Everyone Should Make

Cleaning up your diet is not an all-or-none proposition. Just because you aren’t ready to (or don’t need to) follow a strict weight-loss diet does not mean you can’t make some minor changes and improve your diet. Below you’ll find some helpful suggestions you can implement to get you eating a bit healthier for overall good health.

Diet Changes That Everyone Should Make

Cleaning up your diet is not an all-or-none proposition. Just because you aren’t ready to (or don’t need to) follow a strict weight-loss diet does not mean you can’t make some minor changes and improve your health. Here are some helpful diet tips that everyone should consider.

Go Meatless

Have one or two meatless nights each week. Studies have shown that a diet high in red meat consumption is linked to colon cancer and heart disease. If you want to eat healthier, eat less red meat. Try making a meatless chili, and on spaghetti night try serving falafel balls or meatballs made out of garbanzo beans.

Smart Fast Food

Scan the fast food menu for the healthier options such as salads or fruit and yogurt parfaits. Opt for water rather than soda, and don’t super size your meal. Limit eating dessert to one or two nights per week, and try eating lower calorie options like fruit rather than high calorie options like cheesecake. These are good suggestions for everyone to follow not just those who are on a diet.

Veggies Are Your Friend

Raw veggies aren’t just for people on a diet. Snack on raw veggies or a handful of nuts rather than potato chips or cookies even if you don't need to lose weight. Your cholesterol levels will thank you for it.

Juice Is Not

Limit your intake of fruit juice. Just because it’s from fruit doesn’t mean it is the best option. Fruit juice is high in calories, and many juice brands contain added sugar.

Fiber First

Incorporate more high fiber foods into your diet. Fiber has a cleansing effect on your body, and eating high fiber foods can help you feel full and reduce your urge to consume empty calorie foods.

Everyone Has a Diet

Remember, the word “diet” refers to what you eat; it’s not just something you do to lose weight. The above suggestions can be helpful regardless of whether you want to lose weight or not.
