3 Ways to Eat Great and Lose Weight
The word “diet” has several definitions. One of the definitions provided by Merriam Webster is “a regimen of eating and drinking sparingly so as to reduce one’s weight.” Suddenly, losing weight doesn’t sound so great right? However, losing weight and going on a diet doesn’t have to be as terrible as that definition sounds. There’s more to diets than just counting calories and eating chicken and veggies every day and you don’t have to deprive yourself of great tasting food! There are in fact ways to eat great and lose weight while you’re on a diet.
1. Spice Up Your Diet
Many times, you’ll see fitness and health advocates post photos of their chicken, brown rice and veggies; day in and day out. Sounds pretty boring right? Well, the reason many people choose this route is because it’s easy. But there’s a trick to making these simple meals taste better; just spice them up! Spices are a great, low calorie way of adding flavor to dishes and eliminating unhealthy dressings or sauces from your meals. Saveur Natural Foods offers incredible rubs, spices, and seasonings that help turn a simple chicken breast into fajitas in no time!
2. Choose Seasonal and Organic
There’s definitely something to be said about the quality and taste of sustainably-grown, organic vegetables. And not only do they taste better, but they are also higher in nutrients than their conventionally-grown counterparts. Plus, most of the vegetables and fruits that you find at local farmers markets are seasonally grown.
If you don’t have access to a farmers market, or don’t want to break the bank purchasing organic produce every week, check out the Seasonal Produce Guide published by the USDA. Even if it’s not organic, if the vegetable is in season, chances are there were fewer pesticides and chemicals used to grow the vegetable.
3. Explore New Ideas
Eating the same dish over and over again gets boring, and this often triggers you to cheat on a diet. After all, who wants to each chicken and veggies for dinner every night? So learn to cook new dishes by taking 10 mins out of your day to look up new recipes. A great place to start is our Recipes Section in the Healthy Body Challenge site.
