Dieting is now of Biblical Proportions. The 7 seven plagues sent to pester Pharoah cannot replicate the frugal food phenomena that are punishing society to serve vanity and promise immortality. Yes, ok, diets, when you have Type 2 and food intolerances, is one thing, but for the sake of getting into clothes that have to be outstretched by a compliant friend on the lawn while you leap from an upstairs window to get into them is now brainwashing humanity to a very dangerous and unhappy end.
Ok let’s look at ways to keep healthy without looking good in lycra may be a physique goal for many but for foodies like me, that ship sailed a long time ago. I have an overnourished frame that make some Sumo wrestlers look like Kate Moss.
Here are this weeks food hacks for tasteful eating and healthy nom noms.
Eat plenty of fish
Herring, sardines, and salmon are all excellent sources of Omega 3 essential fatty acids. Other fish are great to, although Omega 3 may help to get your cholesterol down to a healthier level.
Choosing healthy fats and oils
Saturated fat will increase the risk of heart disease.
It’s found in meat, butter, and even coconut oil. You should avoid them until your cholesterol levels are down and you are at a healthy weight. Even those that love red meats can enjoy seafood and nuts for
their main sources of protein.
Monounsaturated fats such as olive oils will help you to protect your heart. Olive oil is an ideal choice for cooking, dressing, or even as a dipping sauce.
Plenty of fiber
Fiber can help you control your cholesterol. You can find fiber in whole grain products to help control sugar absorption as well, which will help you keep your digestive system healthy.
Eating for your heart involves staying away from sugary foods such as candy, cookies, cakes, and pastries. Eating a lot of sugar isn’t good for your heart disease at all. Healthy carbohydrates involve whole grain bread, whole grain pasta, brown rice, and a lot of vegetables. You should make fruits and vegetables the main aspect of your diet.
Healthy cooking methods
Stir-frying and sauteing with olive oil or canola oil are both great methods, as you shouldn’t dip your food in batter and fry it anymore. If you cook chicken, remove the skin and bake it in the oven in foil.
Instead of frying your fish you should always bake it. Steaming your vegetables can help maintain the most nutrients. You should use cream sauces or lots of butter anymore either. When you eat vegetables, try squeezing lemon juice on them or using your favorite seasonings.
Eat Well and Jilt the Gilt. Eating disorders and unhealthy environments, undiagnosed mental health issues, are created by the media, trying to sell you ready meals instead of wholesome food. Be the boss of food and not it the boss of you.Make and enjoy your diet without the shame. Honest Grub without the Grubbiness of additives and the lies of food giants…
