11 Simple Ways to Stick to a Healthy Diet

You should eat more veggies. High in vitamins and fiber. Most people consume half the recommended amount. Can you fit more? Replace spaghetti with julienned zucchini. For pilafs and stir-fries, pulse cauliflower in a food processor until rice-like. Reduce calories and improve nutrition.


Around 3 p.m., junk food vending machines lure you. You need more than willpower. Sunrise breakfasts may help you succeed. More filling than carbs, protein keeps you full. Eat peanut butter, skinless chicken, Greek-style yogurt, and hardboiled eggs.

Curb Snack With Protein

Those who miss whole milk and full-fat yogurt but think skim is healthier may be delighted. You can occasionally eat regular dairy. One study found creamy whole milk lowered obesity risk. Don't overeat calories or fat.

Stay with Full-Fat Dairy

You may think you eat more when hungry or eating your favorite food. True, but not usually. Portion size considerably impacts appetite. Even if they don't like it, offering food in a large container increases consumption, according to research. Smaller plates help you eat less.

Take Appropriate Portions

A few minutes a day can make a big difference. These journals promote healthy eating and food awareness. One study found food diaries helped people lose weight over a year. Find what works for you using internet, smartphone, or pen and paper.

Record Meals in a Food Journal

You can make a protein-rich dish without expensive steak or pork. Dried beans are one of the best grocery store deals at 25 cents per cup. Make double or triple the beans and freeze them in 1- and 2-cup quantities for quick dinners. Always try several types to liven up your diet.

Eat More Beans

No rule restricts vegetables to lunch and dinner. Starting with breakfast provides nourishment. Cut one egg from your favorite omelet and add cooked spinach, mushrooms, onions, or red peppers. Add kale, apples, bananas, and yogurt to a smoothie. More fiber and less calories than other morning snacks make vegetables full.

Eat Veggies for Breakfast

Have you ever lusted after TV, magazine, or blog photos and recipes? It seems innocuous. However, looking at those photos of great food may increase your appetites. Food images increase ghrelin, the hunger hormone.

Reduce Food Blogs

After work, fatigue impairs thinking. This is the worst moment to plan dinner. Planning meals and having frozen vegetables will help you avoid the drive-thru. In two batches. Chicken slices and seasoning create a rapid stir-fry, while ground beef makes quick tacos.

Weekly Menu Planning

After supermarket shopping, don't put veggies in the crisper. Take a few minutes to cut carrots, cucumbers, and red peppers into snack sticks. Thus, when hungry, veggies are as accessible as pretzels or chips. Disliked chopping? Precut or tiny carrots and grape tomatoes.

Chop Right

Add foods as you eat healthier. Instead of apples and bananas, try kumquats or clementines. At the farmers market, try a neon cauliflower. Not worrying over things you want to minimize, like junk food and sugary soda, helps you stay on track.
