How Your Nutrition Choices Become Your Health Choices
Instead of snacking on sweet items like cookies and ice cream, try their healthier counterparts. Replace cookies with items like granola, oatmeal and cereal, and fruit bars. For ice cream, try going with low-fat or non-fat yogurt. These options not only taste better than the unhealthier ones, but you get nutrients like iron, calcium, fiber and much more in your diet.
A good way to make your diet more nutritious is to swap out the unhealthy foods you love for similar but healthier alternatives. Make sure that all foods you eat serve a purpose nutritionally. This has become easier now that a lot of eateries offer this information.
You may be thinking that substituting sugar for some other kind of sugary substance may be a good thing. While these don't have any direct affects to your weight, they are proven to have other damaging consequences including cancer and could possibly increase your level of hungry by not having your daily need of sugar.
