Your body needs more than 40 different nutrients for good health and there is not one single source for them. Your daily diet should include a balance of good protein, carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables and dairy products, etc. A simple way is to mix as many colours of fruits, vegetables and pulses as possible.
It becomes easy for you to eat what you want when you keep your portion size moderate. A moderate portion size means 3 reasonably-sized meals with 2-3 small snacks in between. This will help to optimise energy level throughout the day.
Skipping meals causes metabolism to slow down and may cause your body to crave food which might make you eat a lot. Snacking between regular meals can be helpful if sometimes you are extremely busy. Just make sure that you have at least two balanced meals.
Our body requires a wide variety of nutrition, so it’s not good to eliminate salt, fat and sugar from our diet, unless told by a doctor. Choosing healthier alternatives like skim or low-fat dairy will help you maintain a balanced diet.
From soft skin to bright eyes to maintaining good metabolism, the body needs water for all its activities. Water not only helps in hydrating, but it also helps in blood circulation, removing toxins from our body and also regulates our body temperature. Your water requirements depend on your activity level. It’s better to keep sipping water every now and then. Also remember when you feel like munching you might actually need water rather than a snack.Try to stay away from coke and other sugary sodas.
Caffeine is a mildly addictive drug that affects your ability to sleep and concentrate, while also affecting body functions such as muscle function and cleansing of waste products.
Try to use stairs instead of elevators. Take small ‘walk breaks’ during your office work. Get at least 30 minutes of activity every day. You can try going for a walk or a run. The important thing is that you get moving.
Keep yourself organized to eliminate unnecessary stress. Listen to music. Take time for relaxation even if it is only 15 minutes. Try to get plenty of sleep, it is as important as nutrition and exercise. Do at least 30 minutes of quiet activity before sleeping at night, e.g. reading.
