You think you're eating healthy meals, but aren't sure? If your weight loss has slowed, or even stopped, then there's a good chance that you haven't been eating as healthy as you should be. I'm going to end the guesswork for you, once and for all, with my 5 steps to a healthy meal. By following these 5 guidelines you'll know that your meals are healthy and fitness friendly. Combine these tips with the right Exercise and Nutritional Program and you'll experience healthy weight loss. Here are the 5 Easy Steps to a Healthy Meal: Step #1: Quality Ingredients These are the building blocks to a healthy meal. While you certainly don't need to dine in gourmet restaurants in order to ensure quality ingredients, you should pay attention to the quality of the foods you eat. Choose foods that are: Fresh and organic* Pronounceable ingredients Whole foods Step #2: Cooking Method The way a meal is cooked determines how many calories, how much added fat, and the number of nutrients that survive. This simple factor will make or break your weight loss goal. Avoid foods prepared like this: Fried and battered Processed and packaged Doused with cream sauce Sautéed Choose foods that are prepared like this: Grilled Baked Broiled Lightly Steamed Raw Step #3: Mostly Protein The bulk of your calories should be coming from a quality source of protein. With the first 2 guidelines in mind, these will be high quality, healthfully prepared. Good choices of protein include: Fish Chicken Turkey Egg Lean red meat Beans Step #4: Lots of Fiber Fiber is a huge part of eating healthy and being lean. Fibrous foods will fill you up while delivering vitamins and nutrient in low-calorie packages. Fill at least two thirds of your plate with fibrous vegetables. Try these forms of fiber: Salad Seasonal vegetables Fruit Legumes Step #5: Lay Off the Starches Here's where many well-meaning dieters lose it. The facts are simple, in order to maintain the low-carb, high protein diet required for healthy weight loss, there is no room for starchy foods (particularly the ‘white’ versions). Starches to Avoid: Pasta Rice and cereal Bread and crackers Nutrition can either heal or harm your body, as you know for faster results, pair your clean eating with a challenging exercise routine.
