Here's a great way to eat for a healthy body and mind for living vigorously and healthy.
Eat the right fats and carbohydrates for a healthy diet.
Eat the right proportions of food groups and calories, and include olive oil as your main source of healthy fat.
Your basic everyday eating pattern should consist of the following foods:
60% of your food intake should include Carbohydrates From Grains, Fruits And Vegetables - which includes whole rice, fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grain breads and cereals, polenta, pasta . . . make sure they are made with whole grains, not refined white flour.
Eat Red Meat, Fish And Poultry sparingly
- 1 lb of red meat per week
- 1 lb of poultry per week
- 1 lb of fish per week
A good substitute for meat products are soy products, such as soy burgers,
crumbles, soy sandwich meats, etc. Soy products are right in your freeze section
of the grocery store.
Add Olive Oil to your diet which is mono-unsaturated - a good fat. Mono-unsaturated fats help lower cholesterol, and there are healthy ways to add fats to your diet. Remember, your body needs some fat, or it can't use many of the vitamins you feed it!
Exercise and Activity. Everyday include walking or your favorite exercise which is vital in helping the body stay healthy and maintain a good weight.
A secret to a healthy diet and longevity is basing meals on healthy carbohydrates - leafy green vegetables, brightly colored vegetables, whole grains and meals. Use meat sparingly - no more than a few ounces per day. Derive dietary fat from vegetable sources - or from fish oil. Exercise regularly to rev up your metabolism. The above isn't a weight loss plan. It's a good way of eating to help you reach your weight goals and stay there once you get there.
